Sweden funky? You bet your bippy – and if you've got any doubts on that account, check out this mighty mighty set! The collection's a wonderful overview of the funkier side of the Swedish musical spectrum of the 60s and 70s – and pulls together a wide range of tunes from a real variety of sources – not just the few Swedish break and rare groove classics that we already know, but also a huge number of bits that we never would have heard otherwise. The great thing about these tracks is the way that they freely work with the styles they're using for inspiration – in a way that blends together Latin, African, Brazilian, and American modes – yet manages to come up with something completely different in the end. Titles are also from a good range of different labels too – showing the real diversity in the Swedish recording scene of the time, clearly one of the most culturally well-developed in Northern Europe during the postwar years. 17 tracks in all – with titles that include "Jamtlandsk Brudmarsch 73" by Merit Hemmingson & Folkmusigruppen, "Maldito Primitivo" by Hot Salsa, "Been To Canaan" by Alice Babs, "Horroscope" by Ralph Lundsten & The Andromeda All Stars, "Hot Pepper" by The Impossibles, "Happiness Is" by Melvyn Price, "Hovmastarsoppa" by Bernt Staf, "You Never Come Closer" by Doris, "Funkum" by Reebop, "En Larling Pa Varan Gard" by Sylvia Vrethammar, "Sar" by Jojje Wadenius Mitt, "The Snake" by Douglas Westlund & Kjell Ohman, "70 Kila Mtu" by Archimedes Badkar & Afro 70, "Gorillan Gar Ut" by Bo Nilsson, and "Otinku" by Modern Sound.  © 1996-2022, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
