Budos Band 2

CD (Item 481957) Daptone, 2007 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

One of the hippest groups going in the deep funk underground – a combo who play way more than just conventional funk – and who manage to embrace a whole host of classic influences at once! Echoes of older Latin, African, and soundtrack-styled grooves sift together beautifully in this second album from The Budos Band – all in an approach that's totally unified, and which borrows the best elements from other modes to create a whole new Budos-styled sound! The album's all instrumental, but it's far more evocative than most vocal funk sessions we can think of – and the group's horns are tighter than ever, with a slightly exotic feel that creates some real otherworldly moments. Titles include "Ride Or Die", "Budos Rising", "Chicago Falcon", "King Cobra", "Origin Of Man", "Deep In The Sand", "My Girl", and "Mas O Menos".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Budos Band III
Daptone, 2010. Used

Budos Band

Budos Band
Daptone, 2005. Used
A brilliant mix of Afro and deep funk styles – the kind of grooves you'd get if Fela Kuti hung out with The Meters in the late 60s! Budos Band recall the genius of 90s deep funk combo The Daktaris – and have a similar love of older African rhythms touched by a newer indie funk sound ... CD

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

100 Days 100 Nights
Daptone, 2007. Used
They might be borrowing her band, but they sure can't dampen her soul – because Sharon Jones is strongly back in action, and sounding funkier and more deeply soulful than ever! Given that Sharon wasn't singing back in the 60s, it's hard to think we'd be calling her the real deal – but ... CD

Menahan Street Band

Make The Road By Walking
Dunham/Daptone, 2008. Used
A bold slice of work from the Daptone musical universe – a hip project that features work from members of The Dap Kings, El Michels Affair, Budos Band, and Antibalas – all put together with a range of sounds that really show the full spectrum of their styles! The groove's quite unique ... CD
Scufflin, 2005. Used
A festival of funky Hammond organ work – all laid down in loving tribute to the genius of Brother Jack McDuff! The set is the best so far in the "Boogaloo To" series – and it's one that brings together work by a variety of acts from the deep funk and mod instrumental ... CD
Discotheque (UK), 2005. Used
A British combo with a classic soul sound – and one who've got roots in a mod scene that stretches back before the early days of Acid Jazz! Given that the group features keyboards from Mick Talbot and drums from Steve White, you can bet that their sound is tight and right – a solid 60s- ... CD

Laura Vane & The Vipertones

Laura Vane & The Vipertones
Unique (Germany), 2009. Used
Heavy, classic styled funk & soul from Laura Vane & The Vipertones – really killing it in a similar vein as some of our favorite female fronted, blue-eyed female fronted UK funk – but it an even harder grooving, grittier and anthemic mode! It's pretty heavy on the bottom end, ... CD

Sweet Vandals

Sweet Vandals
Unique (Germany), 2007. Used
Heavy funk from the Spanish scene – really great little combo with hard-cooking organ from Carlo Coupe, and some wickedly soulful vocals from Mayka Edjole – a singer who almost stands next to the best current deep funk divas from the US! There's a lean, stripped-down quality to the ... CD
Colemine, 2018. Used
A great little soul set by a singer we're betting will have a long run in the funky underground – a relative newcomer, but one who comes across with a power that really belies his time in the studio! Ben Piriani's music has this righteous, full-on groove that reminds us a lot of that moment ... CD

Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators

Keep Reachin' Up
Timmion/Above The Clouds (UK), 2005. Used
A bold step forward for the deep funk groove of Timmion Records – way more than just a "funk band meets diva" set, and instead a fully-formed soul record that's one of the greatest indies we've heard in years! Nicole Willis has already won our hearts with earlier records, but here ... CD

Flavio Boltro

Road Runner
Blue Note (France), 1999. Used
Great stuff from one of the new European "funky young lions" of Blue Note France! Italian trumpeter Flavio Boltro lays down a killer set of modern funk grooves here – clearly played with one foot in the past, but the other firmly in a present that's filled with tight snapping drum ... CD

Quantic Soul Orchestra

Pushin On
Tru Thoughts/Ubiquity, 2005. Used
If drums were enough to make us love a record, we'd love this one to death – but it's also got a heck of a lot more to offer! Quantic Soul Orchestra return with a smashing second set – one that's even tighter and funkier than the first one – with a sound that really bridges both ... CD
