Heavy Heavy Heavy (Let's Have A Party/Afro Soco Soul Live)

CD (Item 556681) Retro Afric (UK), 1970s — Condition: Used
$14.99 ...


They certainly got the title right on this one – because the groove is heavy heavy heavy, and the set is one of the funkiest African collections we've ever stocked! Geraldo Pino's often credited as the man who inspired part of the Fela sound of the 70s – and Pino was one of the first Africans to pick up the styles that James Brown was forging in the 60s, and recast them into a longer, more jamming mode that would eventually form the sound of Afro Funk. This set's the first collection we've ever seen of Pino's work – and it's a long-overdue set that adds a whole new chapter to the history of Afro Funk! Many tunes have skittish electric piano and organ riffing along with heavier percussion and guitar – in a way that creates a really unusual groove, and one that grabs our ears instantly! 12 tracks in all – including "Afro Soco Soul Live", "Let Them Talk", "Heavy Heavy Heavy", "Africans Must Unite", "Shake Hands", "Power To The People", "Let's Have A Party", "Right In The Centre", "On The Spot", and "Black Woman Experience".  © 1996-2019, 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.
