Dusty Fingers Vol 5

LP (Item 156606) Strictly Breaks, 1960s/1970s — Condition: Near Mint-
One of the greatest series of funky breaks ever! The set features a stunning array of hip jazzy grooves – of the sort you're bound to recognize from samples by Tribe Called Quest or Pete Rock. Titles include "Love Sounds" by Intimate Strangers, "Algebrique" by Shoche, "Solstice" by Brian Bennett, "Dirty Drugs" by H Thieme, "Bass In Action" by Toni Rubioi, "Soft Wind" by Gary Pacific Orchestra, "Attention" by Head West, "Jane B" by Jane Birkin, "Railroad" by Monk Higgins, and "Signals" by Gerhard Trede & His Electronic Instruments. Fantastic – an the cuts are all super darn rare, many from European sources!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Sealed
Funky sounds from the rock side of the musical spectrum – music by artists who might have worked in psych or garage modes in the 60s, but also had a pretty darn heavy groove – and a fair bit of inspiration from 60s soul in their vocals! The tracks are wonderful – really unlikely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brutal (UK), 2010. Sealed 2LP
Loads of 80s elements here – drum fills, post-punk guitars, keyboard bits, and more – all mixed up superbly from Dom Thomas – with the same sort of B-Music/Finders Keepers style we love in his other projects! There's plenty of bits here that seem familiar, but they're nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP
A second turn in the Movements series on the Perfect Toy label – some of the most blazingly funky 45s you'll hear – put together by the Tobias Kirmayer of Tramp Records! Once again we're floored by how great all of this stuff sounds – some of the deepest, tightest funk material ... LP, Vinyl record album
How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
This very hip series just got a whole lot hipper – thanks to the selection talents of Brazilian soul legend Ed Motta – who serves up a huge host of rare tracks from Brazil! Ed's always had a deep love of the AOR sound of the 70s – and he's not only a great soul singer on his own ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzanova (Germany), Late 50s/1960s. Very Good+
Stunningly great compilation of rare jazz tracks from the East German state-run Amiga label. The tracks, which span the dates in the title, were selected by the group Jazzanova for Compost Records, and the material has the same sort of uptempo jazzy sound as some of the best records on Compost. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tramp (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. Sealed 2LP
The tenth edition in this really fantastic series – a collection of tunes that's moved way past the traditional funk compilations from years back – really showing the evolving taste for a groove in the global underground! The tunes here effortlessly mix together rare soul, groovy jazz, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Def Jam, 1991. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Maybe one of the last moments of genius from Public Enemy – and a set that still has their power and politics very much at the top of their game! The message may even be more powerful than the music at points – no surprise for Chuck D and crew at this point in their career – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arista, 2002. Near Mint- 2LP
Cee-Lo Green gits up and gets out on his own – without the heavy burden of too many guest appearances – and the result may be the best album to come out of the Dirty South in quite a while! Cee-Lo's raspy, cotton-mouthed speak & sing style has always been one of the strongest ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shady/Interscope, 1990s/2000s. Near Mint- 2LP
A batch of some of the best and/or biggest hits from one of the most singular talents in the history of hip hop – love him or loathe him! Most of our favorite Shady tracks either pre-date many of the ones here or were buried on the LPs (such is the case with most greatest hits packages) but ... LP, Vinyl record album
