Players Association/Turn The Music Up!

CD (Item 535628) Ace (UK), Late 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


4.70 11

Great little stuff from The Players Association – one of those groups that you want to write off as throwaway disco before you listen, but who have a great sound when you really get into their music. Jazzman Chris Hills was at the head of the group, and he plays drums in the funky group that includes Joe Farrell, Jon Faddis, and Ray Mantilla. The first record on the CD is probably their best – and it includes the funky cut "I Like It", which has a nice break in the beginning, plus the tracks "Let's Groove", "Hustlin", "Moon In Pisces", and a sweet cover of "For The Love Of You". Turn The Music Up features a similar groove, perhaps a bit slicker, but still nice and funky. Titles include "Everybody Dance", "Ride The Groove", "The Closer I Get To You", and "I Wish".  © 1996-2015, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Encouraging Words
Apple (UK), 1970. Used
One of Billy's better albums from the time – produced by George Harrison, with a rough rootsy spiritual sound that reminds us of material on Let It Be. There's more than a bit of rock on the album – and there's a churchy feeling that sounds a lot like the hippie religiosity that ... CD
