Wise Retrogression

CD (Item 482119) Planet Groove (Japan), 2004 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...


An incredible debut from Okada Taxi – the kind of future soul classic we'll be digging for years! Okada handles the keyboards and programming on the set – next to an assortment of great instrumentation on trumpet, Wurlitzer, and acoustic bass – plus key guest work by artists that include Kim Hill, Mark De Clive-Lowe, Rich Medina, Abdul Shyllon, and Monique Bingham! The set's got a genre-crossing sensibility that reminds us of the freshness of the Japanese work we first started discovering in the early 90s – but it's also got a future-thinking sound that pushes past any cliche, into a spacious sound that's all its own! Titles include "Come & Live With me", "Tell Her", "Blank In A Term", "The Age Of Aquarius", "Like A Dolphin", "Sunshine", and "Season 2 Season".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes obi.)

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.
