A beautiful package – done in celebration of 40 years of wonderful music from Ace Records – and a great reminder of why we love them so much! The set is book-style – similar to the Motown Singles CD sets, or a vintage 78rpm album – and it includes lots of text and notes on the music – plus individual pages that include all the music on 45s, too! The music runs the gamut of all the great styles that Ace has given us over the years – vintage soul, blues, funk, and even a bit of rock – and tracks include "Confessin The Blues (alt)" by BB King, "Tough Lover (alt)" by Etta James, "One Cup Of Coffee & A Cigarette" by Glen Glenn, "You're Under Arrest" by The Shirelles, "Not My Girl" by The Platters, "No Other Guy" by Lou Johnson, "Try A Little Tenderness (alt)" by Otis Redding, "You Gotta Have Soul" by James Carr, "Psychedelic Sally" by Eddie Jefferson, "Keep On Brother Keep On" by Johnny King & Fatback, "I Got Mine" by The Charlatans, "Get The Picture (alt)" by The Scot Richard Case, "Don't Cry For Me" by The Zombies, and "Keys To Your Heart" by The 101ers. Limited to 1000 copies, too!  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
Two good mellow soul cuts from one of his great Atlantic albums. "Groovin" is a bit uptempo, but "You Turned Me On" is a great soul cut. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Hollywood Swinging/Dujii
De-Lite, 1974. Very Good
A killer – one of those must-own tracks that we'd never be without! "Duji" is a totally great cut by Kool & The Gang, jazzy, warm, but still quite funky – with a warm rolling guitar part that's really unique. The cut was sampled famously by Gang Starr for "Jazz ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
20th Century, 1973. Near Mint-
Fantastic electric piano groove! "World Is A Ghetto" is a beautiful instrumental remake of the War hit which sounds cosmically wonderful on its own! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Superfly/Underground
Curtom, 1972. Very Good
Here's a classic – Curtis' theme to Superfly, and a tune that never seems to get old. The track's got a stop-start chugging groove that's instantly infectious, laid out by basslines and conga, plus some nice wah wah guitar mixed with Curtis' vocals! "Underground" is a killer ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Slaves (voc, inst)
Skye, Early 70s. Near Mint-
The tune's kind of a slow-building soul track – making good use of Grady's baritone vocals to give the tune a nice solid feel. The instrumental by Gary McFarland is actually even better – starting slow, but then hitting some nice funkier jazz parts in the middle! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Record Breakin, 2014. Sealed (pic cover)
Not a cover of the Afrika Bambaataa classic of the same name – although the cut does borrow the chorus for its own – and instead some mighty fresh work from Fatnice, set to some crackling cosmic beats! Our favorite is the stripped-down "windy city mix", which has a brasness ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia, 1959. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A beautiful jazzy score by Ellington – and a fitting companion to this classic Otto Preminger film! The record captures Ellington at a perfect moment – right during his Indigos period of increased sophistication, when his band was at an all-time level of perfection. Players include ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Alston, 1972. Very Good-
A really catchy little number – clearly the follow up to "Clean Up Woman", about another kind of woman, but with the same twist, and the same great Betty Wright 70's southern soul sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Prodigal, 1975. Near Mint-
Fantastic soul by Ronnie McNeir – one of his first big records! "Saggitarian Affair" is a great track – smoothly grooving like some of Leroy Hutson's early work, with electric piano riffing along under Ronnie's sweet vocals – hooking nicely, and always a treat. "Yo ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Rib Tips (parts 1 & 2)
Avin, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A great little funky number by Andre Williams – one of those tracks that he originally cut back in the 50s, but redone here in a funkier 60s version! The cut's a nice one, with a jaunty raw groove that points the way towards his later funk stuff – but which also has the best elements ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
People, 1975. Very Good
A classic – the JB's answer to BT Express' theme song! A biiiiig track here in Chicago, and one that still booms out of roller rinks, record stores, and the back seats of all the low riders. Stand in a record store on the south or west side, and within 15 minutes, you're bound to hear a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
