FEEL – Far East Easy Listening

CD (Item 540613) Flower (Japan), 2001 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock



Hardly a set of Easy Listening – more a crackling batch of dancefloor tracks from one of Japan's hippest labels! Flower Records is one of those companies that just keeps on getting better and better over the years – coming up with new artists, new records, and new sounds that show that the label's really one to watch these days, on the cutting edge of the ultra-cool Japanese underground. Flower's artists work in a territory that's steeped in soul, and which has a link to grooves currently coming out of scenes in London, Germany, Italy, and France – a near-global approach that's making a heck of a big splash these days. Titles include "Our Roots" by Bayaka, "Yoyogi Park" by Utsumi, "Now Or Never" by Jazztronik, "Closer Than Before" by Nostrum 3, "Heat Haze" by Stereo 28, "Stranger In Dubland" by Slowman, and "Baby" by Reggae Disco Rockers with Horace Andy.  © 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.
