Shapes 08:01

CD (Item 578639) Tru Thoughts (UK), 2008 — Condition: Used
Just Sold Out!



Tru Thoughts are at it again – hitting us once more with a wonderful selection of grooves, all priced so low we wonder how the label ever manages to stay in business! This entry in the label's Shapes series is as rock-solid as the rest – way more than a simple compilation, and instead more of a deep exploration of the well-crafted Tru Thoughts sound – one that's strongly unified across the label, given that some of the acts share members, and some artists often remixes other's work! Grooves range from funky to dubby to mellow to downtempo – and titles include "Be Known (Owusu rmx)" by Up Hygh, "Brown Paper Bag (Flowering Inferno version)" by Me & You, "Humankind (Grant Phabao rmx)" by Alice Russell, "Crazy Bout Ya" by Milez Benjiman, "Belly Full Of Lead" by Unforscene, "Feet Keep Moving" by Natural Self, "Fly Away" by Hot 8 Brass Band, "Quiet Dawn (Bonobo rmx)" by Nostalgia 77, and "She Said What (version)" by Quantic Soul Orchestra.  © 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.
