A killer album of fuzzy late 60s grooves – partly a psychedelic rock record, but also one that's got a fairly groovy sound overall – almost a soundtrack sort of approach at times! That factor's no surprise, as The Dragons are a combo fronted by surf soundtrack maestros Dennis Dragon and Doug Dragon – also featuring help from brother Darryl Dragon, later of Captain & Tennille fame! The core sound comes from lots of tight drums that almost get funky at points – plus organ, electric piano, clavinet, and other keyboards – sewn together with heavy bass, vibes, and a fair bit of vocals. Like some of the Dragon-penned soundtrack work, there's a flowing, open groove to the record – a sound that's not as stiff or cliched as some of the mainstream rock at the time – and which has a wonderfully vivid way of putting together simple instrumental moments to make whole new moments in sound. Most titles have vocals sung by members of the group, but the production style almost gives more preference to the instrumentation – and titles include "Cosmosis", "Food For My Soul", "Sandman", "Amplified Emotion", "On The Wall", "Are You There", "Sunset Scenery", and "Pop's Bag". © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
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.
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.
