4.60 12

A massive tribute to one of the greatest 70s soundtrack composers – England's mighty Roy Budd, the man responsible for Get Carter and some other incredible gems! This package is the first to really dip into Roy's classic 70s work – and it does a great job of bringing together funky tunes that might have been passed up because they were hidden in otherwise mellower soundtracks. Snippets of dialogue are juxtaposed with some great grooves – and a few of the tracks are presented in new remixes that give the set a fresh feel, even if you own some of the original Budd soundtracks. The overall sound is great – a wonderful blend of jazzy riffs and cop show grooves – and titles include "Hanky Panky", "Beauty & The Bass (edit)", "M17", "Black Is Beautiful", "The Girl In The Car", "Jazz Source (edit)", "Livin Should Be This Way", "Free Tarrant", "Hallucinations (edit)", "Diamond Fortress (Karminsky Experience rmx)", "Diamonds", "Jazz It Up (Mitchell & Dewbury mix)", "Get Carter Theme (Bobby Hughes Experience mix)", and "Mr Easy".  © 1996-2015, 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.

MCA, 1978. Used 2CD
We know, we know, you're wondering "Why is this here?". And truthfully, if it weren't for the fact that Quincy was at the top of his game when he produced this version of The Wiz, we'd write it off as total crap too, but there are a few moments peppered in here and there that will make ... CD

Tulpa – Perdizioni Mortali
Beat (Italy), 2013. Used
A cool contemporary score from Italy – but one that feels like horror greats from the late 70s and early 80s! The instrumentation here is mostly in an old school electric style – keyboards and guitars that echo the music of Goblin, but at a level that's often more spare and less ... CD

Mio Caro Dr Grasler
GDM (Italy), 1990. Used
A romantic later soundtrack by Ennio Morricone for Mio Caro Dr Grasler, aka The Bachelor – in a timeless piano and strings mode! The setting of the film is pre-World War I Austria, and it has a strong dramatic cast, so the elegance is quite befitting – but it's never stodgy or anything ... CD

Emergency (Italy), 2013. Used
A string-heavy soundtrack, but one that's got a great deal of lightness too – a surprising swing in points, and a lean use of the instrumentation that's extremely beautiful, and very fresh! There's a slight jazz sensibility to the work – almost like some of the older Keith Jarrett ... CD

Groovin' With Golson
New Jazz/OJC, 1958. Used
Although Benny Golson is perhaps best known as a lively arranger in the modern idiom, he's also a kick-ass tenor player when he wants to be – and on this classic, he definitely wants to be! Unlike some of Golson's more tightly arranged records of the early years, this date is a deeply gutsy ... CD

Sony (Japan), 1964. Used
