CD (Item 521233) Tru Thoughts/Ubiquity, 2006 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Forward, indeed – this this a big step up and some of the best work yet from TM Juke – his debut for Ubiquity! On Forward, the crafty producer/arranger/DJ, pushes the laptop bits and broken beats a little further out to the fringes – and focuses on the richer soul approach we love from his work with Alice Russell! The sound incorporates bits of spacey jazz, electro funk, and hip hop era thump – beat based but percolating sweetly under the vocals the rich aural tapestry! He brings out some great guest vocalists for the groovier soul sounding tunes – including Kinny of Kinny & Horne, Tru Thoughts compatriot Alice Russell, Elmore Judd and others – and the instrumental cuts are just as groovy! "Damn" feat Kinny, "Come Away" feat Sophie Faricy, "Bee's On Mars", "Arrggh!", "Skin" feat Naim, "So Good" feat Alice Russell, "Lady Garden", "Electric Chair" feat Elmore Judd, "Grounded In Fargo", "Life, Rain, Fall" and "Pencils For Dolphins".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Barcode has a cutout hole.)

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.
