Just when you thought they'd put all they could into this series – this latest 4th volume comes along and knocks all the other ones out on their booties! This set's got a huge amount of great sample cuts, including loads of non-Blue Note material, like "Three is The Magic Number" by Bob Dorough, "Holy Thursday" by David Axelrod, "Boomp Boomp Chomp" by The Sons, "Shack Up (pts 1 & 2)" by Banbarra, "Sitting Duck" by Gene Harris, "Woman Of The Ghetto (live version)" by Marlena Shaw, and "This Is Soul" by Paul Nero (ok, so a few of those were Blue Notes, but there's a lot more cool stuff on here that isn't!) Looks like the folks at EMI got sick of being beat to the punch by all the Dusty Fingers and Strictly Breaks comps, so they went ahead and did one like that themselves!  © 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.
