Fuss & Fight

CD (Item 577330) Afrokings (UK), 2002 — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...

CD

The bold voice of a new Afro Funk ensemble – jamming hard with an intensity that matches recent work by Antibalas or The Daktaris, and which stands proudly in a tradition that runs back to Fela's best work of the 70s! The group's extremely tight, and have a good funky edge – and they've actually got a lot of jazz in their playing, especially on the sax solos, which are particularly strong. Plus, the whole thing was engineered by Gabe Roth of Daptone, so it's got a no-nonsense, all-classic sound that makes the whole thing immediately enjoyable! 6 long jammers – including "Fuss & Fight", "Donkey", "Good Noose Bad Noose", "Talk - Action = Zero", and "Watching You".  © 1996-2020, 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.
