CD


Throw away all your 70s electric funk records – because the classic sound is back, and fresher than ever! Yesterday's New Quintet is a side project from hip hop producer Madlib – and the group's firmly steeped in a love of the mellow funky sound of 70s labels like Kudu and CTI. Vibes collides with Fender Rhodes collides with sweet drumbeats collides with slight touches of turntablist production – for a sensational full LP debut that's one of the best new funky records we've heard in years! The sound is incredible – and these guys really do a heck of a lot more than just recreate an older style of music. They take all the hip hop/beathead love of 70s mellow jazz funk, and lift it firmly into the 21st Century with a whole new set of hooks and grooves! Titles include "Julani", "Papa", "Daylight", "Hot Water", "Sun Goddess", "Last Day", "Broken Dreams", "Life's Angles", "Keeper Of My Soul", and "Uno Esta".  © 1996-2017, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Stones Throw, 2005. Used
A fresh serving of genius from Madlib – served up here in yet another manifestation of the Yesterday's New Quintet combo! Sound Directions have a groove that's quite similar to YNQ, but which focuses a bit more on the skittish percussion of Otis Jackson and "Sloppy" Joe Johnson ... CD
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

Money Shot
Fog City, 2000. Used
A killer album of soul jazz from Robert Walter – most famously known as the keyboardist with the Greyboy All Stars, but a killer player in his own right, and the leader of the soon-to-be famous 20th Congress! The group features some killer drumming by Stanton Moore of Galactic – and ... CD
Naturally
Daptone, 2005. Used
The long-anticipated second album from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings is a stunner – undoubtedly stronger than the group's fantastic debut – and a record that not only transcends the late model funk revival genre, but stands on footing as solid as the best hard funky soul of the late ... CD
I Learned The Hard Way
Daptone, 2010. Used
The fourth album from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – solidifying what we learned pretty early on from the indomitable soul spirit that is Sharon and her impeccable combo the Dap-Kings – it's that this is not some retro soul revival novelty act, what they are is the greatest active ... CD
Bandung 16.04.1955
Aljama (France), 2003. Used
A fantastic bit of dubby funk – performed by a trio with some massive Fender Rhodes! The Nonalinians live somewhere in between the 70s work of CTI and Jackie Mitoo – blending funky reggae rhythms with electric jazz riffing, to create a sound that's unlike anything else we've heard ... CD
Raw Funk
Hotpie & Candy/Instinct, Early 90s. Used
Sounds like rare funk material from the 60s – and the notes make you think the same thing – but the grooves were cut during the last 10 years, by the European funk combos that made up the now-defunkt Soulciety label! The imprint was one of the best acid jazz labels in the early 90s ... CD
Inland Emperor
MRI, 2013. Used
Damn great work from the Greyboy Allstars – a record that's deeper, hipper, and more rewarding than we ever remember from the group – a rich blend of jazz and funk, without any tricks or gimmicks at all! The playing of the members has really deepened a lot since the last album – ... CD
Ubiquity, 1990s/Early 2000s. Used
A massive look at the music of Greyboy – one that features classic cuts, previously unreleased tracks, and rare mixes as well! Back in the early 90s, when most of the few funky records coming out of the west coast were pretty darn weak, Greyboy really caught our ears with his raw, stripped-do ... CD
Get Organized
Urban/Polydor (UK), 1989. Used
Wonderful early work from the great James Taylor Quartet – a killer UK group that emerged out of the London mod and acid jazz scenes of the 80s, then went onto become a monstrously talented funk group in their own right! Taylor's smoking Hammond leads the session, stepping out in some strong ... CD
Safecracker
Electraphonic, 2009. Used
Gritty grooves from The City Champs – a Memphis trio with a really classic sound! Instrumentation features Hammond, guitar, and drums – used in a blend that's spare, but super tight too – very much in the best Memphis funk mode from years past, and recorded with just the right ... CD
