West Indies Soul

CD (Item 934768) Trans Air (Puerto Rico), 1970s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



A more soul-centric set from the folks behind the West Indies Funk series – and the best overall batch yet from the island music connoisseurs at San Juan's Trans Air label – here's hoping West Indies Soul blossoms into a series of its own! There's actually still quite a bit of funk in the equation here – which is, by and large, a sweet set of sun-toasted funky soul, with a bit of a tropical infusion – a couple recognizable names and many more we're seeing for the first time. Timeless, goodtime soul numbers by Mark Holder, The Guinness Casanovas, Johnny Baptiste, Judy Mowatt, Soul Vendors, Lloyd Williams with Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, Dobby Dobson and others. Includes "Bring My Lover Back" by Mark Holder, "Expressway to Your Heart" by The Guiness Casanovas, "Funky Broadway" by Lians Thelwell & His Celestials, "Goodbye Baby" by Lloyd Willaims With Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, "Johnny's Dream" by Johnny Baptiste, 'People Get Ready" by The Troubadours, "Too Good For Me" by Judy Mowatt, "What Love Has Joined Together" by Dobby Dobson, "What An Experience" by Judy Mowatt and more. 16 in all.  © 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.
