Mandrill — Mandrill Is ... LP 11.99

A fantastic bit of hard jamming funk from Mandrill – rougher than later work, with a mix of soul, jazz, and Latin influences, all coming together in a mode that reminds us of early 70s LA groups like War or El Chicano. The best element of the album's the mix of keyboards, bass-driven rhythms, and flute – which cuts across the top of the heavy jams in a light way that really spices things up! Tracks include "Cohelo", "Ape is High", "Universal Rhythms", "Central Park", and "Git It All".  © 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.

Esther Phillips

Burnin/Confessin The Blues
Atlantic/Collectables, Early 70s. Used
2 albums recorded by Esther in the years before she broke into big fame on the Kudu label. Burnin is a stunning live set that marked Esther's move from being a loud young R&B singer into an older, more mature interpreter of material in a more jazzy style. She's backed here by a good group ... CD

Clyde McPhatter

Love Ballads/Clyde
Atlantic/Collectables, Late 50s. Used
26 tracks from Clyde McPhatter's Atlantic albums Clyde and Love Ballads – a great mix of hard R&B numbers, and some mellower ballads that showcase Clyde's richly emotional style of singing, one that's on a par with his lead vocal work in The Drifters, and recorded here in a very similar ... CD

People's Choice

Golden Classics
Collectables/Philadelphia International, Mid 70s. Used
A collection of 13 tracks pulled from People's Choice's mid 70s recordings for Philadelphia International – sides that show them making the same progression from funk to disco as other groups of the time, like BT Express. And although it would have been easy for the group to leave behind ... CD
Polydor/Universal, 1968. Used
James Brown's great second album recorded live at the Apollo Theater in Harlem – a set we like even better than the first famous volume – because it's much more stretched-out, harder-hitting, and full of fire! You'd be hard pressed to find a better example of Brown's showmanship on ... CD

Art Of Noise

In Visible Silence
China/Polydor, 1986. Used
Not as sublime as their first LP, but still a nice batch of modern pop sound collage. More traditional song structures are poking through the cool po-mo facade here. With "Opus 4", "Eye Of A Needle", "Backbeat", "Instruments Of Darkness", "Peter ... CD

Rick James

Wonderful
Reprise/Collectables, 1987. Used
Rick James makes the move away from Motown here – heading over to Warner/Reprise, in the Prince side of the spectrum – along with a cover image that has him wearing a paisley costume on top of a purple background – in a way that could well make the buyer think that Rick's working ... CD

Wilson Pickett

I'm In Love
Collectables, 1962. Used
Classic heavy soul from Wilson – with some great production from Tommy Cogbill, and a nice raw southern sound. The record features 3 strong early Bobby Womack tracks – "I'm In Love", "Jealous Love", and "I've Come A Long Way" – plus Pickett's own ... CD
Polydor (Germany), Mid 70s. Used
Some great JB gems here – including "Keep On Bumpin Before You Give Out Of Gas" by The Last Word, "Givin Up Food For Funk" by The JBs, and "Funky Drummer" by James Brown – plus more by Fatback, Parliament, Ohio Players, Parlet, and Kook & The Gang! CD
Epic, 1988. Used
Another nice one from Sade – perhaps not as edgey as some of her earlier work, recorded in a slightly smoother style, but still quite nice to our ears – as Sade's always been a pleasure, no matter what the setting! Includes the nicely grooving "Nothing Can Come Between Us", ... CD
