Achtung German Grooves – 20 Instrumental Dancefloor Killers From The 60s & 70s

CD (Item 486167) Bureau B (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Funky grooves galore – a massive set of work from the German scene of the 60s and 70s – most of which were never issued here in the US! The package is filled with grooves awash in the best sound library, soundtrack, and jazz funk styles of the time – electric instrumentation at the bottom, kicking up the rhythms nicely and sometimes snaking into a solo too – plus lots of horns and other acoustic elements to warm out the sound nicely! The overall feel is a fair bit like the excellent In-Kraut compilations – although the focus here is more on instrumental titles than vocal ones – and like that series, all the obscure work here is presented with full track-by-track notes – almost as proof that all of these great tunes didn't come together by accident! Titles include "Catch Up" by Catch Up, "U-Humbah" by James Last, "Mabusso" by Ambros Seelos, "Guitar Shower" by Don Kelly Band, "UFO Invasion" by Gerhard Narholz, "Mocoto" by Roberto Delgado, "BL Special" by Berry Lipman, "Sport Extra" by Hans Haider, "Tigerauge" by Walter Kubiczek, "One For You One For Me" by Hans Ehrlinger, "Soul Breeze" by Max Greger, and "Easter Afternoon" by Ady Zehnpfenning.  © 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.
