Soaring soul from Bah Samba – an excellent group that features vocals by the incredible Alice Russell! Bah Samba have a sound that's as compelling as their promising name – a blend of Latin influences and modern London grooves – wrapped up in a warmly jazzy finish that's a nice extension of older British modes from the late 80s and early 90s, yet which comes off here without any of their cliches at all. Bits of Swing Out Sister, Brand New Heavies, and other British favorites echo through the group's work – but there's also a fresher west London vibe going on as well. Most surprising are Russell's vocals, which have a warmth that's quite a contrast to some of her later work. 2CD set has loads of tracks at a really great price – and titles include an excellent remake of Teena Marie's "Portuguese Love", served up in both LP and Phil Asher versions – plus "Soul King", "Everybody Get Up", "Have You Got Your Bootz On", "Inner Soul", "Calma", "Don't Let Them Get You Down", "So Many People", "Let The Drums Speak", and "Doober".  © 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.

The group's first, with production courtesy the great Gary Katz, who's put a fine touch on many Steely Dan LPs. While we were a bit dismissive of this effort at the time, it's kind of become a bit of a watershed in retrospect, the high water mark for the American Acid Jazz scene, if a bit ... CD
