CD

✈

30 tracks by one of the greatest new Hammond players to show up in the past few decades! Brit James Taylor is a master of the keys – expanding his sound over the years from funky Jimmy Smith/Jimmy McGriff type grooves, into a mode that ecompassed a lot of the changes in sounds that took place during the 70s. This excellent set gives you a great look at the rich range of Taylor's talents – and includes tracks that were on some of his albums for the Acid Jazz label, plus rarer bits from singles that are long out of print. Tracks include "Europa", "3 Mile Island", "Green Onions", "Mrs Robinson", "Redneck", "Black Gun (live)", "Untitled part 2", "Fourth Dimension", "Journey", "Love The Life (live)", "It's Your World", "Good Thing", "Summer Fantasy", "Starting Too Slow (live)", "The Stooge", and "Hatiain Breakdown/Starsky & Hutch".  © 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.

Change Is Coming
Emperor Norton, 2000. Used
The mad funky keyboard wizard is back – back with a great set of heavy-duty instrumentals with his usual "speakers blown out" kind of sound! Mark's picked up a bit of moog along the way since the last release, and he's given a few of these tunes a fuzzed out trippy edge that moves ... CD

Verve (UK), 1964. Used
