The British scene right at the cusp of the big time – tracks from a moment when the always-indie world of the C86 generation was just about to break into much wider territory, including a fair bit of crossover fame on this side of the Atlantic as well! The fuzzy touches of the Creation Records crowd have been more than absorbed by lots of these groups, as have some of the more offbeat rhythms of the avant pop groups on the fringes – and mixed with some of the more electric beats that Manchester acts were bringing to play, especially with a bit of dancefloor play. Yet throughout it all, there's a superior sense of songcraft that really holds these tracks together – plenty of numbers that shoulda been hits, mixed with work by groups who were just about to break through – and peppered throughout by lots of other gems from artists who just never made it that far. As with all the previous volumes in this wonderful series, there's a stunning level of depth to the whole presentation – really documenting this fantastic moment when it seemed that the British scene was able to turn out wonderful records day after day, week after week – most of them from small labels and upcoming artists. The package features a whopping 72 tracks in all – with work by The Ammonites, Pooh Sticks, Bridewell Taxis, The Popguns, Stone Roses, Strawberry Story, New Fast Automatic Daffodils, Red Chair Fadeaway, Korova Milkbar, The La's, Family Cat, Me & Dean Martin, The Church Grims, Men Of Westness, Said Liquidator, Christine's Cat, Kit, The Rain, The Moss Poles, Treebound Story, The Snapdragons, Just Another Sunny Day, The Orchids, The Bardots, Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine, and Ambitious Beggars.  © 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.
