Liberty Years

CD (Item 978251) Liberty/EMI, Early 60s — Condition: Used
$13.99 ...

CD

Killer work by The Rivingtons – material recorded in the early 60s, but with all the rough, raw, and pyrotechnic edges of some of the best 50s doo wop! The group are probably best remembered for their title hit, but the whole CD is tremendous – a real treasure trove of under-discovered gems, done in a soaring, leaping, jumping, tumbling harmony style that's simply breathtaking – a groove that almost beats The Coasters and Olympics at their own game! The production is great – tight and focused, in a way that further emphasizes the quick twists and turns in the tunes – and even the few mellower numbers on the record come off well, thanks to the tight harmonies. CD features 23 tracks in all – including "The Bird's The Word", "The Shaky Bird (parts 1 & 2)", "Little Sally Walker", "The Weejee Walk", "Fairy Tales", "Love Pill", "Mama Oom Mow Mow", "Papa Oom Mow Mow", "Deep Water", "Kickapoo Joy Juice", and "Happy Jack".  © 1996-2021, 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.

Warner, 1984. Used 3CDs/DVD

Stax/Universal (Japan), 1976. Used
Hardly the disco set you might guess from the title – and instead, a surprisingly soulful gem from the post-Stax years of Isaac Hayes! There's certainly a bit of uptempo grooving in the mix – but, as on Ike's Polydor years, the approach is still handled with the deeper sounds that ... CD

Warner, 1981. Used
Ambitious work from Jaco – a set of larger group recordings that have a really expansive feel! There's a jagged electric undercurrent to the set, but the album's also got some redemptive work from the larger group – bright, optimistic, and filled with a globe-spanning array of ... CD
