All About The Funk (Japanese pressing)

CD (Item 534465) One Two/Recall (Japan), 2004 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...


The Brand New Heavies are back on top – coming across with a batch of funky soul tracks that should cross over large! The sound here is much tighter and hook-heavy than on their recent Japanese release – more in the vein of the chart-crossing funk the group were cooking up at the end of their early 90s run – a blend of 70s soul influences, stripped-down production, and enough modern R&B twists to carry their work quite far from their London roots. There's a heck of a lot of guitar on the set – fuzzed-up but compressed nicely, underneath vocals from new singer Nicole Russo. Titles include "Boogie", "Waste My Time", "Need Some More", "Surrender", "How Do You Think", "How We Do This", and "I Feel Right".  © 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.

Another top-shelf session from Monday Michiru – one of the few current artists who's been able to hold our attention for so many years, thanks to an ever-deepening quality in her work! Back at the end of the 90s, we were first amazed when Monday moved simpler dance-based work into more ... CD
