Horse Meat Disco

CD (Item 657084) Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...

CD

Marvelously mixed-up work from the Horse Meat Disco team – a great way for all of us to sample the revolutionary grooves they've been laying down at their famous club night in London! The work here is hardly the conventional disco you'd find on other compilations (although maybe you already guessed that from the "horse meat" in the title) – and instead, the grooves are an odd range of funky club styles from the late 70s and early 80s – including many tracks that have a jagged, percussive edge that's a far cry from smoother disco. Don't get us wrong, though – as there's definitely some great disco touches here too – yet these are still far from the mainstream, and just slide on in to warm things up before the beats take over on the next tune. 2CD set features one disc mixed by the team, one unmixed – with titles that include "In The Evening" by Sheryl Lee Ralph, "Danger" by Gregg Diamond, "Dancing Shoes" by Plaza, "Freakman" by Empire Projecting Penny, "And I Don't Love You (Larry Levan inst)" by Smokey Robinson, "Detour (party mix)" by Karen Young, "Disco Jam" by Eddie Drennon, "Love Bite" by Richard Hewson Orchestra, "I Don't Depend On You" by Two Tons, and "It's Alright" by Gino Soccio.  © 1996-2021, 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.
