✈

A tremendous celebration of one of the greatest house music labels ever – the mighty Trax Records, the Chicago home to some of the music's greatest work of the 80s! The 3CD set is a really massive package – featuring 2 CDs that offer live mixing of 34 of the label's classic tunes – plus a full bonus disc that includes an additional 12 tracks, unmixed! The feel is great throughout – with the stripped-down, no-nonsense, back-to-back mixing style that you'd often hear in the glory days of the Chitown scene – a straight-running set of house grooves that includes "Bring Down The Walls" by Robert Owens, "No Way Back" by Adonis, "House This House" by Mr Lee, "Can You Feel It (alternate)" by Mr Fingers, "Can't Get Enough" by Liz Torres, "In A Vision" by Virgo Four, "Washing Machine" by Mr Fingers, "House Music Anthem" by Frankie Knuckles presents Marshall Jefferson, "This Is Acid" by Maurice, "I'll Never Let You Go" by William S, "Children Of The Night (radio)" by Kevin Irving, "Acid Tracks" by Phuture, and "7 Ways To Jack (full version)" by Hercules.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print. Digipack case has some edgewear, no booklet and is priced accordingly.)

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.

The American take on the sound of bossa nova – a mode that started almost as soon as the first sounds headed north from Rio, and which grew to become a very important contribution to the music in the 60s! We love the originals by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luis Bonfa, Joao Gilberto, and others ... CD

One of the first moments of genius from a young Pharoah Sanders – a set that builds on the energy of John Coltrane's Love Supreme generation – but takes it in a much more expansive direction! The album's got a sense of majesty that's years ahead of its time – righteous, positive, ... CD
