Tortilla Funk

CD (Item 650451) Lazarus Audio, Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



Very cool! The folks at Lazarus Audio – who also gave you the Black Sugar and We All Together reissues – put together this excellent 19 track compilation of rare Tex/Mex funk from the late 60's and early 70's. The vibe is a mix of straight funk instrumentals and tracks that have a bit more of a Chicano rock/soul sound. We've never seen any of these in the original, and they represent the cream of the crop of the rare border funk scene! Tracks include "Radiator" by Steam Heat, "Cantaloupe Island" by Big Lou, "Pack My Bag" by A. Ramirez, "Cissy Strut" by Joe Bravo, "Dynafunk" by Jazzmanian Devil, "Everybody's Getting So Funky" by Faces South, and "Cokin' & Tokin'" by Tortilla Factory. The cover's a bit weak, but the CD's a great batch of rare stuff that you'll never find elsewhere!  © 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.
