You Can Make It If You Try – The Very Best Of Gene Allison

CD (Item 791119) Vee Jay/Collectables, Early 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Stunning work from the birth of soul! Gene Allison recorded for the legendary Chicago label Vee Jay – but his raw rootsy style was much more in a southern mode, and had a sound that would really go onto influence records cut in Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and New Orleans over the course of the 60s. Most of Gene's work has been out of print for years, but his raw heartfelt vocals are totally worth discovering if you dig great soul music. This 20 track set features all of Gene's solo album for Vee Jay, plus 8 other tracks that include singles and a few unreleased numbers. Includes the hit single "You Can Make It If You Try", plus "Everybody But Me", "I'll Be Waiting For You", "Hey Hey I Love You", "Without You", "Three Times Seven", "I'm A Fool For Wanting You", and "Ask".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
