Back From the Raggedy Edge (Japanese pressing)

CD (Item 547888) Opaz (Japan), 1995 — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...

CD

Nice bit of modern soul stuff from Ray Haden's group Opaz. Sort of like Noel McKoy or Omar in that it's got a sort of modern R&B feel to it, and with that nice twist that the newer London soul artists have in their songwriting. A very big album here in Chicago with the steppers, and a good blend of modern R&B sounds with an older sensibility. Not really acid jazz, and more like something you'd hear on an urban contemporary station, but a nice bit of underground work in that vein. Mica Paris guest vocalizes on one cut, and Ray lays down sweet soul vocals on the rest. With "When We're Makin' Love", "I Always", and "Let's Unwind".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print, digipack case has some light edgewear.)

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.

Groove Improver
Irma/Flying, 1995. Used
Nice bit of funky stuff on Irma, and some tracks that have a bit of a dub twist at times. The best tracks have a nice electronic funk feel, with a straight ahead funk sound. Other tracks get a little too dubby for our taste, but they might sit well with you if you like other dubby acid jazz ... CD
G Stone/K7 (Germany), 2002. Used
Everything you've ever come to expect from Tosca – heavy beats, tuneful flourishes, and a downtempo groove that never breaks its cool – despite the presence of a rich array of other remix talents here. The posturing gets a bit stiff for us at times – and makes us long for the ... CD

Lageos
Ninja Tune, 2018. Used
