✈

2 of Les' funky albums for Atlantic from the mid 70s – out again on reissue in their full electric glory! The records are a good example of how Les moved from being a mostly instrumental artist, and transformed himself into a funky soul singer for most of the 70s. The tracks have a warm spiritual sound that works well with Les' voice – which is not always technically perfect, but definitely full of soul. Titles include "You Little Cheat", "What's Going On", "Shamading", "North Carolina", "Let It Lay", "What is it That We Have To Do To Let Our Children Grow", and "Hand From The Crowd". 15 cuts in all!  © 1996-2022, 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.

A wonderful set by the enigmatic Charles Bell – a 60s modernist, but one with a great sense of soul! The album definitely lives up to its title, and has a fresh approach to the medium – a style that has some of the Modern Jazz Quartet influence in its structure, yet which also shares ... CD
