Funky Entertainment

CD (Item 579341) Tabu/Right Stuff, 1979 — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...

CD

They're not lying with the title of this album from Brainstorm – because this classic late 70s set has the group moving into some very funky territory – stepping up the basslines even more than before, and really finding a great way to focus on the groove! The approach is right on the money throughout – and sparkles with some deeper touches than usual for a group of this nature – thanks in part to work from key guests like Ernie Watts on reeds, Phil Upchurch on guitar, and Harvey Mason on drums – plus a bit of guest vocals from Syreeta too! The grooves grow up nicely from the energy at the bottom – filled out with lots of quick-stepping instrumentation over the top – and maestro Jerry Peters produced the whole thing with that great mix of sophistication and groove that can make his records so great. The album's definitely one of the clubbiest moments ever from the group – and titles include "Hot For You", "Don't Let Me Catch You With Your Groove Down", "Popcorn", "Funky Entertainment", "A Case Of The Boogie", and "You Put A Charge In My Life".  © 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.
