CD

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

Another really strong effort from Blockhead – one that follows his equally good Music By Cavelight! It's feels like a tribute to NYC, in an atmospheric way, full of crackly melodies, terse moments, and compelling soundtracky hip hop beat craft. Tracks include "Expiration Date", "Roll Out The Red Carpet", "Serenade", "Cherry Picker", "Crashing Down", "Stop Motion Traffic", "Good Block Bad Block", "Dough Nation", "The First Snowfall" and "Long Walk Home". Includes a bonus DVD of experimental film accompaniment to Blockhead's music from Music By Cavelight LP – 3 1/2 hours worth of footage! (Out of print.)  © 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.

Funky jazz breaks from Skalpel – a really excellent set throughout, and one that's a lot warmer than the group's earlier work! The drums are heavy, the tracks are tight, but most importantly, the album's awash in warm instrumentation that includes acoustic bass, soulful horn parts, and some ... CD

One of the coolest projects so far from Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart – a set that's put together as a tribute to all the spacey electronic 70s grooves from artists like Patrick Adams, Alain Goraguer, or Jean Pierre Massiera! Patchworks definitely gets the sound right for the set ... CD

A sweet take on the Turntables On The Hudson series – presented by Nickodemus with a nice sense of Latin in the mix! The music here all resonates with that new wave of 21st Century club that started to draw in elements from Puerto Rico, Cuba, and other points sunny and south – and the ... CD

An excellent early album by funky guitarist Ronny Jordan! Back when everyone seemed to have lost their groove, Ronny emerged with a strong single-note style that reminded us a heck of a lot of Grant Green or Melvin Sparks. This record features some great backings behind Ronnie's guitar, arranged ... CD
