Songs For My Funeral

CD (Item 517437) Tru Thoughts (UK), 2004 — Condition: Used
$7.99 ...

CD

A great batch of slow building funk and hypnotic mood music from Nostalgia 77 – and another gift from future funk generators at Tru Thoughts Records! Nostalgia 77 takes the sort of inward, not necessarily downtempo, but definitely more cerebral tack of later work by DJ Shadow and others to a deeper level. The programmed funky drums, spare hip hop scratches and samples, and, perhaps most importantly, a hugely melodious jazz and sparely trippy psychedelic influences really make for a unique vibe here! This is one of the finest DJ-based albums we've heard in a good little while! Tracks include "Processional", "The Conventicle", "Rain Walk", "Only Hush", "Metamorphosis", "The Mirror", "The Gates Pts 1 & 2", "Dirge" 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.

A wonderful bit of Brazilian soul – featuring vocals by Eli Goulart, a great singer with a style that reminds us a bit of Jon Lucien, touched with modes of some of the samba soul 70s generation! The album was recorded in Germany – but has jazzy backings that are perfectly in the mode ... CD

Phonorama

Retrology
Funky Juice (Italy), 2007. Used
Nothing too "retro" about this set, despite the title – and instead, the album's a really fresh batch of Brazilian-influenced grooves – served up with a fair bit of classic instrumentation in the mix, but also some of the leaner, more contemporary styles coming out of Italy in ... CD

Rambling (Japan), 2003. Used
