Great work from At Jazz – one of those London names you've been seeing a lot on remixes and singles, who really deliver the goods on this full LP! The album's a spacious blend of beats and keyboard lines – mostly instrumental, and with a soulful soaring sound that's right up there in the best British beat tradition. There's some killer keys on the set – warmly grooving with nice jazzy touches, an element that really keeps the record rooted on the earth, while the beats and basslines reach for the stars, stretching out in a wonderful set of tunes that stays fresh throughout! Titles include "Strike", "Day 2001", "It's Complete", "Harmony", "Touch The Sun", "Heavy Weather", and "Casa De Ilusion".  © 1996-2021, 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.
