❔

Beautiful! Not On The Outside.is one of The Moments' best albums from the early 70s, and it's a masterpiece of east coast group soul in the best New Jersey tradition! The trio of Ray, Goodman, and Brown sing together with perfect harmonies, and the production has a raw edge that makes their voices sound even sweeter in contrast – that rough edge that really characterized east coast soul in the years before some of the bigger Philly productions started smoothing it out a bit. The record includes their big hit "Not On The Outside", plus "Hurts On Me, Baby", "Sunday", "Love On A Two Way Street", "You Make Me Feel Good", and "I'm So Lost". The On Top album continues the tradition – with 10 more killers including "Lucky Me", "All I Have", "I Lost One Bird In The Hand", "Sweeter As The Days Go By", "To You With Love" and "Candy Shack".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Duke/Playback, Late 60s. Used
Great great work from the mighty Ernie K Doe – a legendary New Orleans singer who's best known for a few big hits – but who steps out here on some overlooked singles for Duke Records from the 60s! This material's not nearly as well known as Doe's records for the Minit and Instant label ... CD
Cadet/Playback, 1972. Used
A wonderful record from the Dells – with stellar Cadet production and arrangements by Charles Stepney! This one has a very cool way of putting the tracks together, so that there's these little "segues" in between each cut – short instrumental grooves that are actually quite ... CD
Playback, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
Johnny Bristol first got his start at Motown – where both his songwriting skills and studio talents graced an excellent range of singles and album tracks in the late 60s – but as the 70s moved in, Bristol really became a strong singer on his own – with a fantastic sound that we'd ... CD

Roy C Hammond

Sex & Soul
Mercury/Playback, 1973. Used
Sex, soul, and lots more too – a sublime solo set from the great Roy C Hammond – recorded after his initial work with The Honeydrippers! The approach here is much more deep soul than his work with that group – very much in the best sort of Fame or Hi Records vibe – with a ... CD

Dynamics

Lights Out
Playback, Late 60s. Used
Overlooked genius from The Dynamics – a Detroit soul group of the 60s, and one who never fully got the fame they deserved, had they gotten some sort of bigger exposure on Motown! Yet that's what also makes these guys great, too – as they've got that tight sound that the Motor City ... CD

DJ Rogers

Hope Songs Vol 1
Hope Song/Playback, 1982. Used
DJ Rogers returns to his roots, and cuts an album that's more in a straight gospel mode than his earlier gospel-influenced soul sets! Honestly, the results are so great, we like this one just as much as the best of his secular albums – and the record's got a cohesive feel that's totally ... CD
Mercury/Playback, 1975. Used
Definitely something nice from the great Roy C – one of the overlooked soul singer's great 70s albums for Mercury – all of which are ripe for rediscovery by a younger generation! This one's slightly different than the rest, in that the album was recorded at the Dynamic Studios in ... CD

Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd St Rhythm Band

In The Jungle Babe/Express Yourself
Warner, 1969/1970. Used
2 of the best albums by this funky bandleader from LA! Both records are super-hard to find in the original, and they're laid out here back to back on one extended funky CD. Express Yourself is an undisputed classic – with hard heavy tracks like "Express Yourself", "High As ... CD

Logg
Salsoul/Unidisc (Canada), 1981. Used
A club classic on Salsoul – with a soaring sound that's still grooving dancefloors today! The record was arranged and conducted by Leroy Burgess – who also sang lead vocals and wrote all the material – and it's got a sound that's similar to some of the later uptempo grooves that ... CD
Lost Highway, Mid 40s/1950s/1960s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs
A pretty amazing batch of soul, R&B, and funk from the Nashville scene – from an astonishing range of years, too! Of course the memorabilia industry that is "Music City USA" is dominated by country music and pop, and this long, long, LONG overdue collection of singles from 1945- ... CD
Epic, 2002. Used
A sweet little live set by Sade – done with the subdued warmth of her later work, but also featuring a few key songs from earlier years! There's a nicely understated quality to the record, in keeping with Sade's own presence – and we're quite pleased to hear how these songs hold up ... CD

Jimmy Ruffin

Ruff 'N Ready
SOUL/Reel Music, 1969. Used
A tremendous little album from Jimmy Ruffin – as "ruff" as the title implies, with a much deeper groove than you might find from other Motown releases at the time! The style here is really wonderful – rich, heartfelt vocals from Jimmy that easily match the best of the Detroit ... CD
