CD

✈

Plenty of tracks at a mighty nice price – all of them with the fresh funky sound of the Tru Thoughts label! The package is a great entry in their Shapes series – 2CDs with 27 tracks – all at a price that will have you really digging the full range of styles the groundbreaking imprint has to offer! As with other volumes, the grooves are a mix of contemporary modes that draw inspiration from older soul, funk, and hip hop – sometimes laying out that inspiration in direct ways, sometimes really abstracting the sounds into very leftfield directions. Titles include "One Woman Army" by Hint, "2456 Nice" by Kinny, "Prayer" by Lizzy Parks, "I Don't Wanna Stop (Marc Mac rmx)" by The Bamboos, "Pencils For Dolphins (Wyndham Earl rmx)" by Tm Juke, "Make Me Want More" by Kylie Auldist, "You're Listening To The Worlds" by Belleruche, "Dub Del Pacifico" by Quantic Presents Flowering Inferno, "Last Night (Bassnectar rmx)" by Me & You, "The Rising (Bullion rmx)" by Natural Self, "Get Up (Diesler rmx)" by Hot 8 Brass Band, and "Disco Caribe" by Quantic.  © 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.

Dummy
Go! Discs, 1994. Used
At this point, we hardly need to tell you what this is about. To many, a genre-defining period classic: haunting vocals, dark, spacey production, and beats so slow, you wonder if your turntable isn't busted. "Sour Times" was the one that put them over the top, and spawned too many ... CD

P-Vine (Japan), 2007. Used
Ray Harris is a heck of a great keyboardist – one with plenty of influences from the 60s and 70s, and a groove that more than lives up to the title of the set! The style's a bit less conventionally "fusion" than you might expect – and instead, there's almost a club jazz feel ... CD
