Let's Cool One

CD (Item 738279) Estrus, 2003 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Mod mod grooving from Iowa's Diplomats Of Solid Sound – a tight little combo that's steeped in the ways of Booker T and Jimmy McGriff – but which also knows how to rock it when they can! The core group's a quartet – with Hammond and Fender Rhodes leading the grooves, plus a bit of bass, guitar, and drums. Added to some tracks are a bit of extra sax and percussion – but mostly, the groove's in a stripped-down organ combo mode that reminds us a lot of the early mod-revival style of the JTQ! Simple, solid, and no-nonsense – with tracks that include "Who's Got The Grady?", "You Can Make It If You Try", "The Cuber Bake", "Ribsticker", "Shadow Of Your Soul", "My Place BBQ", and "Don't Touch My Popcorn".  © 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.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

100 Days 100 Nights
Daptone, 2007. Used
They might be borrowing her band, but they sure can't dampen her soul – because Sharon Jones is strongly back in action, and sounding funkier and more deeply soulful than ever! Given that Sharon wasn't singing back in the 60s, it's hard to think we'd be calling her the real deal – but ... CD

Ghost Funk Orchestra

Ode To Escapism
Karma Chief/Colemine, 2020. Used
This one-man orchestra just keeps on getting better and better with each new record – working with the funk you'd expect from the name, but also all these cool and moody touches that mix together David Axelrod-like ambition with some of the sharper snap of hip hop production! This time ... CD
Greyboy, 1996. Used
An obscure bit of jazzy funk from the Swiss scene – the only album we've ever seen from Grandmother's Funck – on Greyboy Records! The album was recorded in Switzerland in '96, and there's timeless sound and a laidback approach of funk – with soul jazz awareness that we don't ... CD

Breakestra

Live Mix Part 2

Town Called Earth

The most recent CD by the Greyboy All Stars, and a nice tight batch of grooves with a loud jazz funk sound in the tradition of the JBs, or some of the classic recordings from the late 60's on Prestige. Karl Denson and Robert Walter are in the group, and the ensemble has a large loud horn section. ... CD

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad with Doug Carn

Doug Carn – Jazz Is Dead 5
Jazz Is Dead, 2020. Used
A great new showcase for the legendary keyboard work of Doug Carn – and a set that's very different both from his famous albums for the Black Jazz label, and some of his organ jazz records in more recent years too! The set's maybe got a more pronounced influence from Adrian Younge and Ali ... CD

Soulive

Doin' Something
Blue Note, 2001. Used
Great stuff from one of the funkiest combos around! Soulive are part of the second wave of US jam-band funk acts – the sort of groovy groups that have been springing up in the wake of Medeski, Martin, & Wood's success over the past 10 years – and the combo's got a tight no-nonsense ... CD
Hi Records/Right Stuff, 1972. Used
Al Green, 1973 – what could be better? The king of Memphis soul is at the height of his powers here – working in a setting that yielded less chart hits than some of his other albums for Hi Records, but which is still as sublime as the rest – thanks to an undeniable studio magic ... CD
