What could be greater – a whole box set of James Brown instrumentals from the 60s, with great notes, a killer selection of tracks, and even some previously unissued material! The package is a dream come true – great not only for beginners, but also for collectors like us, as it pulls together some sublime non-vocal numbers from rare LPs and singles, improves the sound a lot more from the original wax, and throws in the kind of work that you'd only find in the vaults of King Records! The music is a mix of soul jazz, organ wailers, and early funk recorded with the pre-JB's group that included Pee Wee Ellis. Titles include "Mashed Potatoes 66", "Sudsy", "Soul Pride (parts 1 & 2)", "Go On Now", "Gittin A Little Hipper", "The King", "Top of The Stack", "Devil's Den (live)", "Fat Bag", "Jabo", "New Breed", "Soul Food (parts 1 & 2)", "The Scratch", "Suds", "Tighten Up (live)", "Come On In The House", "Lowdown Popcorn (buttered version)", and the original "tambourine mix" of "Funky Drummer"!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print. Slipcase has a little wear at the spine but rest of the cover is in great shape and this is a nice copy overall.)

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.

King (Japan), 1970. Used
Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... CD

Hot Pants
Polygram, 1971. Used
James Brown really opens up on this early 70s classic – really showing the world the amazing groove he was crafting with his band – who were let loose to jam in the studio, spinning out some really long grooves – which were then cut down to make this sweet little record! The ... CD

Polydor/Finesse (UK), 1983. Used
Sweet electro soul from Second Image – a group who manage to mix in plenty of beats and keyboards to their groove, yet never let the music get too cold! There's a playful sort of feeling to most numbers here – a style that's a bit different than US electro of the time, with less of a ... CD

Polydor, 1988. Used
Nothing too manic here, as the grooves are all nicely laidback – in that sweetly smooth Shakatak style! The album's definitely a bit more contemporary-styled than some of the group's earlier ones – rhythms that are mostly programmed, and keyboards that have a later 80s sound – ... CD

Epic, 1986. Used
A great little album from James Mtume – a bit more complicated and righteous than some of his previous albums on Epic, and with a real mix of styles that works nicely together! The album starts off with "Theme For Theater Of The Mind", a sort of 80s take on the spiritual/political ... CD
