Touch & Go

CD (Item 684606) Unique (Germany), 2005 — Condition: Used
$4.99 ...

CD

A great set of jaunty groovers from the Frank Popp Ensemble – a group who always manage to tap into an older mod and Northern Soul-influenced vein, yet come up with a sound that's cracklingly fresh! As with the other Popp releases, this set's got a really playful feel – not really kitschy, but unabashedly groovy – and topped off with plenty of female vocals to emphasize the catchy hooks of the tunes. There's plenty of Hammond grooving in alongside the snapping beats and driving guitars of the tunes – and the album could well be another big crossover hit for the ensemble! Titles include "All I Need", "Enough", "Touch & Gio", "Getting Down", "Business & Pleasure", "Leave Me Alone", "Just Say Goodbye", "Getting Down", "Fonce Danse Le Coeur", and "The World Is Waiting".  © 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.

Frank Popp Ensemble

Ride On (original version)
Unique (Germany), 2001. Used
Modern mod groovers – a serious 60s retro sound in force, mixing Hammond organ, bossa beats, jangly guitars, and a bit of Motown soul – very much in the Blow Up kind of style, with perhaps a bit more of a modern bounce in the beats! There's some campy elements to the overall production ... CD

Xaver Fischer Trio

Visit From A Goddess
Unique (Germany), 2005. Used
Sweet keyboard grooves from the Xaver Fischer Trio – an outfit that we haven't heard from for a few years, but who still sound totally great! The group's format is spare and simple – and very much dedicated to the spirit of smaller 70s keyboard funk – with stripped-down basslines ... CD

Ben Human

Out Of Towner
Unique (Germany), 2005. Used
A deeply complicated set of grooves from Ben Human – one that comes across like a classic soundtrack, souped up with some very tasty contemporary touches! There's a vibe here that seems to run from mid 60s French and Italian work to early 80s electronics – all served up with the ear ... CD

Groove Collective

Groove Collective
Giant Step/Reprise, 1994. Used
The group's first, with production courtesy the great Gary Katz, who's put a fine touch on many Steely Dan LPs. While we were a bit dismissive of this effort at the time, it's kind of become a bit of a watershed in retrospect, the high water mark for the American Acid Jazz scene, if a bit ... CD

Soul Bossa Trio

Dancing In The Street
Bomba (Germany), 1994. Used
A great album of jazzy bossa tracks – with a bit more going on than the band's first one, and a larger lineup joining in on a lot of the tracks. Includes their great take on Sivuca's version of "Ain't No Sunshine", an acid jazz club classic – plus lots of other goodies like ... CD

... CD
Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2005. Used
A mix of older electronic styles all filtered together nicely – and topped off by a few modern hip hop and cosmic soul touches! Slope's working here in the mode established by the "Komputa Groove" single – almost a recasting of the early 80s electro mode, but one that's all ... CD

Instinct, 1993. Used
A really groundbreaking little set – the revival of bossa influence on the Japanese scene, presented here by a host of hip talents from the earliest years of the club jazz scene! The album's got a wonderful vibe through and through – a sound that was later taken up by bigger names from ... CD
