Royal Sessions

CD (Item 523151) Yellow Dog, 2004 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
Modern Memphis soul from the Bo-Keys – a group who play in the same spirit as classic acts from Stax and Hi Records! The sound's no surprise, as the record was recorded in the studios of legendary producer Willie Mitchell – a perfect fit for the warm Booker T-inspired grooves of the set. The core group includes organ, guitar, bass, and drums – plus incidental vocals – and some tracks feature additional trumpet, tenor sax, and percussion. Titles include "I Remember Stax", "Seven & 7", "Spanish Delight", "Under The Table", "Coming Home Baby", and "Back At The Chicken Shack", which features guest performances by Memphis legends Calvin Newborn and John Gary Williams!  © 1996-2024, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Zim Zam Zoom
Bullseye Blues, 1996. Used
One of the sweetest sets ever cut by organist Ron Levy – and a record that's done very much in the mode of the older Prestige soul jazz and jazz funk that first inspired his work! Of course, that relation to Prestige is no surprise – given that Ron's working here with Melvin Sparks on ... CD

New Mastersounds

Shake It
Color Red, 2019. Used
The New Mastersounds shake it strongly here – still with all the great core energy of their classic quartet lineup – but further expanded with excellent lead vocals from Lamar Williams, plus a bit of tenor and trumpet too! The group have always been funky, but they've got a nicely ... CD
Daptone, 2000s. Used

Flavio Boltro

Road Runner
Blue Note (France), 1999. Used
Great stuff from one of the new European "funky young lions" of Blue Note France! Italian trumpeter Flavio Boltro lays down a killer set of modern funk grooves here – clearly played with one foot in the past, but the other firmly in a present that's filled with tight snapping drum ... CD

Cochemea

All My Relations
Daptone, 2019. Used
You might know Cochemea Gastelum from his work in The Dap-Kings over the years – but this time around, the saxophonist is very much his own man – blowing a version of his instruments that often seems electrified, ala classic Varitone from the late 60s – used in these really new ... CD

Nick Waterhouse

Holly
Innovative Leisure, 2014. Used
Damn deep grooves from Nick Waterhouse – a singer we've always liked a lot, and one who really seems to sharpen his edge here with some great elements from older R&B! Nick's already proved himself to be one heck of a soulful vocalist – and this time around he picks up more grit ... CD

Hi Fly Orchestra

Mambo Atomico
Ajabu (Germany), 2008. Used

Jazz Is Dead 12 – Jean Carne
Jazz Is Dead, 2022. Used
An album that has the legendary Jean Carne in the most righteous setting we've heard in years – a mode that hearkens back to the vocals she provided for organist Doug Carn on their classic 70s albums together for the Black Jazz label! Jean's a singer that we love in just about any format ... CD
Paisley Park, 1990. Used
The fourth Prince soundtrack in less than a decade – and a record that follows nicely after Purple Rain, Batman, and Parade, but with a slightly different spirit too – thanks to an ever-expanding Paisley Park family that included George Clinton, Morris Day, and Mavis Staples! The older ... CD
