Funk This

Out Of Stock

They're not kidding about the title with this one – because the album's surprisingly funky, and a really welcome return from Chaka Khan – who hasn't given us a new album in a decade! Although contemporary, the album's got a sound that really takes us back to Chaka's genius in the 70s – a sparely grooving approach to the music that lets her vocals really take over most of the tunes, and which supports them with just the right sort of sensitive backing she got from Rufus. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis produced the record, but they themselves are also nicely restrained – and even though much of the instrumentation is handled by bigger name players, there's a more relaxed vibe here than we might expect. It's almost like Chaka, Terry, and Jimmy are all taking a cue from the sounds of the younger funk and soul generation – and have really managed to get their groove right! Titles include "Angel", "One For All Time", "Back In The Day", "Castles Made Of Sand", "Disrespectful", "Pack'd My Bags", "Ladies Man", and "Super Life".  © 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.

Seminal work by one of the biggest gospel crossover stars of the 80s – the mighty mighty David Peaston, a man with a truly god-like voice!
