Big Country

CD (Item 180629) Liberty, 1995 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
Unearthed work from David Axelrod – some rare sessions recorded in Nashville in the mid 90s, and unissued until now! The sessions have a very unusual approach – as the darkly-tinged Axelrod approach is applied to a variety of classic country compositions, done in both vocal and instrumental versions, and offered in a number of takes that show Axelrod's differing conceptions of the music. And although the sound's a bit modern at times, overall, we're surprised at how much of the classic Axe is still in place – especially his use of dark strings, spare space, and some nice rhythms at just the right moments! Don Randi plays keyboards on the set, and Ndugu Chancler is on drums – and titles include versions of "I Fall To Pieces", "Help Me Make It Through The Night", "Always On My Mind", and "Standing Outside The Fire".  © 1996-2024, 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.

Scott Hamilton and Eddie Higgins are a pretty great pair together – as you'll hear on this recent date for Japan's Venus Records! Hamilton's got a lot of tradition in his horn, and Higgins a fair bit in his piano too – although Eddie's way of shaping a tune is also very much his own ... CD
