CD

A beautiful little album – filled with jazz, soul, and a sense of collaboration that's extremely unique! Andy Hammill's a bassist on the British scene, and has played on a range of some of the hippest sessions in London during the past few years. For the set, he gathered together a host of famous friends – including Omar, Valerie Etienne, Carleen Anderson, Mark Murphy, Chris Bowden, and Ursula Rucker – all to provide vocals and instrumentation for a wonderful set of tracks that skips across genres as easily and fluidly as Andy's fingers skip across the strings of the bass! Andy's strong work on acoustic bass is at the core of the set, but the added guests really flesh out the sound a lot – taking the personal and mellow tunes, and opening them up tremendously. Jazz is at the core of the session, but there's also a folsky warm that touches each tune – not to mention the soulful side of the vocals by all the great singers on the set! Titles include "The Planet Formerly Known As The Moon", "Mothers & Daughters Now Mothers", "Why Do You Cry?", "Getting On", "Camel's Back", "Dear Love", "Catch", and "Sally Tomato".  © 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.

Dorado (UK), 1994. Used
More in the acid jazz vein than some of her great laster NuSoul efforts, but still a wonderful single, with a slick jazzy feel that reminds us nicely of the mid 90s. The Outside mix gives it a jazzier spin, that we really dig, while "Secret Place" moves at a tempo that's a shade too slow ... CD
