Talk To The People/River High River Low

CD (Item 867611) Atlantic/Collectables, 1972/1976 — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...

CD

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!  © 1996-2023, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Les McCann

Comment
Atlantic (Japan), 1970. Used
A very hip record of vocal tracks – done in the same sort of spiritual soul style that Les introduced on Roberta Flack's first album, and which was also showing up on some of Donny Hathaway's work for Atlantic. While the record is not on of McCann's funkiest, it more than makes up for that ... CD

Les McCann

Much Les
Atlantic (Japan), 1969. Used
A groovy set of late 60s soul jazz piano tunes – played by Les McCann in a swinging style that pre-dates his 70s funk work – and which also features him playing in a strictly instrumental setting! The core of the material is by Les' trio with Leroy Vinnegar on bass – but most ... CD

John Coltrane

My Favorite Things
Atlantic, 1961. Used
Wonderful wonderful wonderful work from the legendary John Coltrane – and even though it's probably one of his best-selling albums of all time, it's still a treasure – and has an essential place in just about any jazz collection! We've heard the original title version of "My ... CD

John Coltrane

Coltrane Jazz
Atlantic, 1960. Used
The title may be a simple one, but the record really marks a key point in John Coltrane's development – an embrace of the newer freedoms allowed to him at Atlantic Records, but in a way that's a bit more subtle than some of his other work for the label! At one level, the record moves at the ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1965/1966. Used
Great stuff by Max Roach – and 2 albums that prove what a great talent he had for finding other lesser-known jazz players! The first album in the set features Max's trio with an amazing piano player named Hasaan – one that we can't find on any other records, and who has a power and ... CD

Billy Cobham

Spectrum
Atlantic/Rhino, 1973. Used
A monstrous bit of jazzy fusion from the 70s – and the record that really put drummer Billy Cobham on the map – virtually creating his own sort of space between jazz, funk, and prog – thanks to the help of an all star lineup too! Cobham is tremendous on drums – and is ... CD

Roland Kirk

Volunteered Slavery
Atlantic/Rhino, 1969. Used
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful ... CD

Charles Mingus

Mingus At Antibes
Atlantic, 1960. Used
A searing live set by Charles Mingus – a double-length performance recorded in Antibes during his classic years for Atlantic Records, but not issued by the label until many years later! The album's a great extrapolation of the sound that Mingus had forged on sessions for Columbia, Atlantic, ... CD

Donald Byrd/Booker Little

Third World
TCB/Collectables, Early 70s. Used
Early 70s issue of a record recorded for the Warwick label in the early 60s – mostly led by Curtis Fuller, and under the name Soul Of Jazz Percussion. The record is a strange batch of soul jazz tracks that features a number of different groups with players like Fuller, Waldron, Little, ... CD
