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
April/VME (Denmark), 2002. Used
A wealth of unreleased tracks by some of our favorite recent groups – and a beautiful album of tunes with a solid jazzy feel! The vibe here is right up the Compost Records alley – current European acts with a respect for all things classic, working in a modern idiom that expands older ... CD

A landmark compilation of Japanese acid jazz from the burning scene of the mid 90s, including lots of work by artists that have never had a proper release over in the states or Europe – but who are great if you dig some of the other Japanese groups we've been stocking! Tracks include "Me ... CD

Money Mark

Push The Button
Mo Wax, 1998. Used
Money Mark's second full length album, another heady trip into the psyche of one of the west coast's more unique visionaries on the keys! You've heard his heavy work for Beasties laying down Groove Holmes-esque grooves on their best albums, but this albums a melange of out there funk, trippy ... CD
