CD

Another amazing set from Bluey and Incognito – one of the few groups who seem to get better and better as the years go by! The title of this album is a line from Roy Ayers' classic "Everybody Loves The Sunshine" – and the group begin the record with an excellent cover version of that tune – really setting the scene for the warmly jazzy grooves to come! Somehow, the sound here seems more "instant classic" than ever before – perfectly recorded, deeply soulful, and filled with just the right balance of 70s styles and contemporary touches to keep things fresh throughout. Vocalists include Jocelyn Brown, Carleen Anderson, and Maysa Leak – and Bluey makes no attempt to hide his love of older music – covering tracks from both the pop and soul side of the spectrum, including "That's The Way Of The World", "Summer In The City", "Tin Man", and "Everybody Loves The Sunshine" – as well as "Always There", which is remade here in a new Incognito version, as is "Still A Friend Of Mine". Other tracks include "Everyday", "Raise", "Crave", and "Deep Waters".  © 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.
