Blue Savannah

CD (Item 125791) Passion (UK), 2003 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

Originally: 9.99
Is it us, or do these guys sound better than ever? Shakatak seem to have lost all the 80s soul cliches of years past, and they're working here in a sweet jazzy style that brings together all the best part of their years of experience, with a fresh and stripped-down sound that's right up there with the best of the soul underground! The record's a treasure – pairing sweet keyboards from Billy Sharpe with vocals from Jill Saward – often adding in some sunny production touches that make the record feel like some lost California jazz funk record from the glory days, with songs that are good enough to match! Title sinclude "Blue Savannah", "Summer Of Love", "Shadow", "Blue Horizon", "Someone I Could Love", "Music In The Air", "Sunset Street", and "Walking On Starlight".  © 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 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.

Rhino, 1960. Used
A stunning standout from Ray Charles' years on ABC Records – and a set that brings in a bit of hard-swinging jazz to the country-styled groove Ray was hitting at the time! Backings are by Ralph Burns, who keeps things pretty hip – not as modern as some of his 50s charts for other ... CD
