Cubist Blues

CD (Item 741596) Thirsty Ear, 1996 — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...


Quite an unusual trio of talents – coming together here in an equally unusual record! The set's the product of an obscure session that combines singer Alan Vega from Suicide, the legendary Alex Chilton from Big Star, and indie singer/songwriter Ben Vaughan – all in a record that sounds unlike any of their own music at all! Vega sings throughout – and Chilton and Vaughan play a range of instruments that include guitar, piano, bass, drums, and keyboards – often with these strongly rhythmic modes that certainly fit that cold, icy style of singing we love from Vega – but with warmer, more redemptive qualities that are different than his own records too. The whole thing's almost like a rumor someone told you about – or an odd dream that suddenly came through – and titles include "Lover Of Love", "Fat City", "Fly Away", "Come On Lord", "Dream Baby Revisited", and "The Werewolf".  © 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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
