Heavy instrumental funk from the New Mastersounds – a group that seems to get more of an edge with each new release! The sound here is strongly in the Meters side of the funky spectrum – with lots of hard-burning Hammond organ and tightly scratching guitar – all served up with impeccable production that really gets to the heart of the grooves, and leaves all extraneous noise behind! There's a grittiness here that we didn't always hear from NMS in the past – and that quality really keeps this one going strongly all the way through – making the group sound a lot more like some funky 45 combo from years past than on their first few releases. Eddie Roberts plays some very wicked guitar throughout, and he's also at the production helm – responsible for the great sound of this set – an overstuffed batch of funky delights, with 14 tracks that include "Talk Is Cheap", "Witness", "Carrot Juice", "33 (A Fine Year To Die)", "Give Me A Minute (part 2)", "Rope-A-Dope", "Bus Stop No 5", and "LA Root Down".  © 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.
