Praise Poems – A Journey Into Deep, Soulful Jazz & Funk From The 70s

CD (Item 755497) Tramp (Germany), 1970s — Condition: Used
$14.99 ...

CD

One of the coolest, hippest compilations we've heard in years – and a set that uncovers a whole new style of underground grooves from the 70s! The work here is definitely in the funk, soul, and jazz territory of other compilations – but it's also got a unique vibe of its own, too – surprisingly personal at times, which a genre-blending mode that often has jazz-based vocals mixing with funkier rhythms – which then often get odd arrangements and unusual production! The quality's almost a bit in Stark Reality territory – or maybe like some of the best Yesterdays New Quintet records from more recent years – with lots of super-dope elements in the rhythms and instrumentation, and this great vibe to the production that really opens up something new. A stunning set, really – one of the hippest musical discoveries we've heard in a long time – with titles that include "Alone Again" by Jorge Darden, "Tribute To Ruffian" by Innerflight, "Carefree" by Larry Covin, "Dragon Rock" by The PTS, "Let Me Down Easy" by Bold Breed, "Wait For Me" by Bobby Stroup, "Black Velvet Soul" by Cookie Thomas & CT Band, "Cold Soul" by Gemstones, "Solemn Solitude" by Seeds Of Fulfillment, and "Strawberries Raspberries" by Don Hales.  © 1996-2022, 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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
