Sugar's Boogaloo

CD (Item 580197) Desco, 1998 — Condition: Used
$8.99 ...

CD

One of the first great albums on the now-legendary Desco label – proof that classic funk was alive and well on at the end of the 20th century! Sugarman Three is an organ-heavy combo led by tenor saxophonist Neal Sugarman – a great player with an ear for classic 60s styles of labels like Cadet or Prestige (and you know we're not light with comparisons like that!) The tunes here have a short, hard, really playful feel that reminds us a lot of the interplay that Jack McDuff and Harold Vick got together on their best albums – and the whole thing's recorded with a no-nonsense, back-to-basics kind of sound that's pure funk all the way through – and not that "too bright" kind of sound you'll get from modern organ jazz sets that try to hard and always fall flat! The combo was little known at the time, but got a great endorsement from Keb Darge on the cover – one they more than live up to with a smoking little set that includes the tracks "Hankerin", "Skunk Walk", "Sock Monkey", "Red Wine", "Sweet Tooth", and "Hot Sauce". Heck, with names like that, you know they've gotta be great!  © 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.

Daptone, 2007. Used
They might be borrowing her band, but they sure can't dampen her soul – because Sharon Jones is strongly back in action, and sounding funkier and more deeply soulful than ever! Given that Sharon wasn't singing back in the 60s, it's hard to think we'd be calling her the real deal – but ... CD

Greyboy, 1996. Used
An obscure bit of jazzy funk from the Swiss scene – the only album we've ever seen from Grandmother's Funck – on Greyboy Records! The album was recorded in Switzerland in '96, and there's timeless sound and a laidback approach of funk – with soul jazz awareness that we don't ... CD
