❔

A bold step forward from Lack Of Afro – the modern funk & soul vehicle of producer, DJ and song stylist Adam Gibbons! The slew of singles and trio of full lengths that we'd heard prior to This Time have all been really impressive – a mix of breakbeat funk era and classic inspiration – fleshed out brilliantly with great players. This one reaches farther and sinks deeper with a more stylistically diverse set of sounds and one strong song after another – with elements of uptempo 60s soul, 70s cinematic funk, Afrobeat, jazz funk and funky hip hop – an eclectic stew that's tasty as can be! Guests include guitarist Eddie Roberts, Wax & Herbal T, Jake Morely, Angeline Morrison and excellent studio players. Gibbons provides beats, programming, synth, bass, Rhodes and more backed by vocalists, horns, guitars and more depending on the needs of the cut. Includes "Holding My Breath" feat Jake Morley, "A Time For" feat Wayne Gidden, "Fool" feat Angeline Morrison, "Contusions", "Little Fugue", "One For Bielski", "The Importance of Elsewhere"f eat Angeline Morrison and "Lazy Lazarus".  © 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.

Freestyle (UK), 2007. Used
They definitely got the title right on this one – as the album's a deep funk monster through and through – easily one of the best examples of contemporary funk we've heard in a long long time! The liner notes are a bit sketchy on the details of the session, but apparently the tracks ... CD

Cookin On 3 Burners

Soul Messin'
Freestyle (UK), 2009. Used
Nothing messy here – as the Burners are tighter than ever, and bat this one out of the park with a massively funky groove! The core combo features organ, guitar, and drums – with occasional horns added from time to time – and most numbers here step off with a really badass ... CD

Greyboy

Soul Mosaic
Ubiquity, 2004. Used
One of the most unified albums we've ever heard from Greyboy – an excellent little set that perfectly bridges his two loves of funk and hip hop! The core style is in the hip hop-infused mode of earlier years – with lots of programming and scratches by Greyboy himself – but there's ... CD

Al Supersonic & The Teenagers

It's Alright
Unique (Germany), 2013. Used
Al Supersonic has a mighty nice vocal approach on this retro-soul set – a style that's a bit looser and maybe more personal than some other singers in recent years – a quality that gives the the whole thing a pretty sweet edge! Al's a bit less "perfect" than some of the deep ... CD

Will Sessions

Elmatic Instrumentals
Fat Beats, 2011. Used
The instrumentals created to compliment Elzhi of Slum Village's tribute to Nas's monumental Illmatic – made by Detroit funk combo Will Sessions! This is an homage that works, really, really well. The Will Sessions backdrops – doing it up recognizably, but with their own touches – ... CD

Budos Band

Budos Band
Daptone, 2005. Used
A brilliant mix of Afro and deep funk styles – the kind of grooves you'd get if Fela Kuti hung out with The Meters in the late 60s! Budos Band recall the genius of 90s deep funk combo The Daktaris – and have a similar love of older African rhythms touched by a newer indie funk sound ... CD

Budos Band

Budos Band III
Daptone, 2010. Used
A great third album from Staten Island instrumental funk titans The Budos Band – who've brought eclectic inspiration all along and have always colored from a much broader palette of styles than most of their peers – going even further this time out and delivering their best yet! The ... CD

Erik Truffaz

Saloua
Blue Note (France), 2005. Used
An enigmatic chapter in the always-compelling career of trumpeter Erik Truffaz – one that has him bringing in some distinct Mid East influences, in the form of vocalists Nya and Mournir Troudi! The core group's a quartet, with Truffaz playing in his usual moody trumpet style, as well as a ... CD

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings

Naturally
Daptone, 2005. Used
The long-anticipated second album from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings is a stunner – undoubtedly stronger than the group's fantastic debut – and a record that not only transcends the late model funk revival genre, but stands on footing as solid as the best hard funky soul of the late ... CD

Lee Fields & The Expressions

My World
Truth & Soul, 2009. Used
One of the best new soul records we've heard in years – a tremendous accomplishment for the mighty Lee Fields, and a set that's quite different than any of his other work! We've always loved Lee's funk and deep soul sides, but this album's something new altogether – almost done in the ... CD

Heliocentrics & Melvin Van Peebles

Last Transmission
Now Again, 2014. Used 2 CDs
A mindblowing collaboration between The Heliocentrics and underground film legend Melvin Van Peebles – a set that has the group serving up some madly trippy grooves, while Melvin speaks and sings some wisdom of his own! Van Peebles already blew our minds years ago with his insane soundtrack ... CD
