❔

Always great to hear from The Rurals – one of the most consistent groove-making groups of the past decade! The sound here is everything we love from previous Rurals albums – warm, soulful, and very free-flowing, but without ever being too forced – a perfect balance between soul and club, yet also delivered here with an even more stripped-down approach than before – nice and lean, but mighty darn deep too! The Rurals almost have a Naked Music sort of vibe here, and Andy Compton's put together some great rhythms for the set – really furthering the 21st Century spirit – while Charlie Hearnshaw plays soulful sax lines, alongside vocals from Julie Monnin and others. Titles include "It's Magic", "Into Life", "Ocean", "It's Hot In Africa", "Gratitude", "On My Way", "A Little Something", and "Hermosa Blues".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Compton's Soul
Peng (UK), 2012. Used
A sweet surprise from Andy Compton of The Rurals – work that's even more profoundly steeped in deep soul atmosphere – with Compton collaborating with seductive female vocalists for one of the sultriest underground soul sets we've heard in a while! This is one of those records that you'd ... CD

Brand New Heavies

Shelter
Delicious Vinyl, 1997. Used
An overlooked mid 90s set from The Brand New Heavies – not as hitbound as some of their earlier work, but still plenty darn great – recorded with a strong emphasis on the vocals, and a no-nonsense soul sound that's always refreshing! There's one or two instrumentals on the album, but ... CD

Omar

Music
Talkin' Loud (UK), 1992. Used
Omar's second album – a strong departure from the first! Unlike the first set, which Omar essentially recorded in his bedroom, this album's got the British soul genius working with much fuller production – a rich array of musical backings that really expand his style. The whole thing's ... CD

Remy Shand

Way I Feel
Motown, 2002. Used
Fantastic work by Remy Shand – one of the best soul singers we've heard in years! Despite his hipster looks, Remy's got a solid sound that's all-classic, all the way – deep and warm, with all the soulfulness of classic work by Marvin Gaye or Al Green, produced to perfection in a ... CD

Sy Smith, 2005. Used
Great work from one of the freshest new voices around – the lovely Sy Smith! Sy's got a cosmically-inflected musical vision here – one that seems to borrow bits from the London and Philly underground, but deliver an overall groove that's got plenty of sunny soulful touches! Sy uses ... CD

Incognito

Incognito Remixed
Verve/Suonaphone, 1996. Used
A great package that sees the work of Incognito getting remixes and souped up a bit more – jazzy grooves gone dancefloor, served up by a host of great talents from the mid 90s. Titles include "Always There (MAW rmx 96)", "Givin It Up (Rober Sanchez Uplifting club mix)", ... CD
Canyon (Japan), 2002. Used
A great album gets even better – as Bluey and crew open the door, and let in a host of great guest talents to remix their impeccable Who Needs Love album! The set's got all the soulful magic of the original – a lasting groove that goes deeper than any of Incognito's recent albums, and ... CD

K Avett

Lioness
K Avett, 2018. Used
A great soul singer, and one with a very positive vibe – a sound that maybe grabs us the same way we felt when we first heard Jill Scott – and that's saying a heck of a lot! As you might guess from the title, K Avett's a singer who's not to be taken lightly – yet while her ... CD

Incognito

Future Remixed
Talkin' Loud (UK), 1999. Used
The work of Incognito gets remixed – taking Bluey's soulful vision to a whole new level! The tracks are a good mix of NuSoul, two-step, and a bit of modern house – and titles include "Port Louis" remixed by United Future Organization, "Nights Over Egypt" remixed by ... CD
Decision, 2008. Used
Raw, funky deep soul from Brooklyn based Tre Williams and the Revelations – with a sound rooted in the classic southern sounds of Hi Records and others, but feels fresh and current – not so much in the throwback vein of others in the soul and funk underground – but a timelessly ... CD
