Reads The Books EP

CD (Item 583558) Warp, 2005 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


Cafe collage rock duo The Books gets the remix treatment by Scott Herron. This rides the strange land between Prefuse's hiphop upbeat antics and his more laidback slow drifts you hear on his Savath & Savalas albums. It's not the usual "band gets revved up by hip-producer-of-the-month crap" either – it's nice stuff & a really great match for both parties involved. If you haven't heard the Books before – they're an electronic medley of cello, acoustic guitar, and really cool "found-sound" vocal samples – perfect sources from which Herron can sauce and give the uprock to. Titles include "Pagina Uno" through "Pagina Ocho" – those would be pages, people. Get it? The Books. Nevermind.  © 1996-2017, 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
