CD

✈

The sound of disco left no corner of the world untouched in the late 70s – and the hipper side of the dancefloor mode had an especially strong impact down in the Caribbean! Of course, that's maybe not as much of a surprise – when you consider how much back/forth action was going on between New York and the islands at the time – a rich sharing of cultural heritage that not only helped breathe great new energy into soul and funk in the US during the 70s, but also had a strong impact back home as well! This stunning second volume of the Tropical Disco Hustle series really documents the best examples of that wonderful cultural exchange – music that carries plenty of traces of New York club, but which also brings in lots of local elements too – from styles like soca, reggae, and calypso, plus some Latin modes as well. Titles include "Music Makes The World Go Round" by The Hamilton Brothers, "Let's Party" by Tru Tones, "Socorama" by Defosto, "The Dealer" by Wild Fire, "Music Lady" by Patti Charles, "Savage" by Maestro, "My Life My Music & Me" by Keith Paul & The GT Boom Band, "Caribbean People (Waxist Selecta edit)" by C Soprann H, "Try Making Love" by Wild Fire, and "Dancing" by Tru Tones.  © 1996-2020, 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.

Cosmic Sounds (UK), 2004. Used
Eastern European jazz classics – remixed! The sound here is really tremendous – a fresh take on a sound that's still mostly underground – 60s and 70s recordings from former Iron Curtain nations, most of which are groovers based around the modal, fusion, or funky styles that were ... CD
Jazzclub (Germany), 1960s/1970s. Used

The funky sound of 70s Spain!

L'Arome (France), 1970s/1980s. Used
Brazil and France – a great combination! This excellent set features jazzy groovers recorded in France during the 70s and 80s – all very much in a sunny fusion mode, mixing post-bossa styles of jazz and vocals with some of the more strident European jazz modes of the time. The result ... CD
