Space Shanty

CD (Item 613285) Decca/Deram (Japan), 1972 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


A British jazz rock masterpiece – and one of the first albums to feature guitar work by a young Steve Hillage! Khan marks a reunion between Hillage and Dave Stewart – after the former had been away at University for a few years, and the latter had been jamming on keyboards with the seminal group Egg. In a way, Khan's sound is kind of a redirection of the heavy cosmic jamming of Egg – one that strips down the sound nicely, pushes things along with a lot more guitar, and gives the tracks a nice grounding in vocals from Hillage and bassist Nick Greenwood. The guitar work alone is a strong part of the set – but Stewart's keyboards are equally enticing, and include organ, piano, and "skyceleste"! Titles include "Space Shanty", "Hollow Stone", "Stargazers", "Driving To Amsterdam", and "Stranded".  © 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.
