Death Of The Revolution

CD (Item 492629) Tru Thoughts (UK), 2008 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Tropical funk percussion, dubby rhythms, and reggae inspired grooves from Will Holland, aka Quantic – his debut full length as Flowering Inferno – and a step deeper from one of the busiest soulful soundscape architects alive! The muse this time out is 70s Latin, dub and soulful reggae, bred seamlessly with Quantic's trademark blend of organic instrumentation and programmed beatcraft – and it's quite wonderful! As prolific as Will is, it's pretty amazing that he never loses the plot – and delivers truly soulful sounds in whatever thematic territory he's into – and it sure doesn't hurt that he finds such incredible players to flesh out the sound and bring the work to life. The record was made in Colombia, and it sounds like it – with Holland on guitar, bass, accordion, keys, guacharaca and gaita – with additional players on congas, bell, double bass, drums and piano, and occasional vocals. Tracks include "Death Of The Revolution", "Mi Chocolatina", "Make Dub Not War", "Cuidad Del Swing", "West Bound Train", "Alegria En Bella Vista", "Dub Del Pacifico" (one of the few vocal tunes, and really sweet female lead) , "Cuidad Del Swing (Version), "Juanita Bonita" and more.  © 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.
