Two funky groovers from Chaquito – aka John Gregory, a very groovy British arranger of the 70s! Spies & Dolls is a cool 70s update on the sort of album that came out often in the 60s – but instead of the usual James Bond themes, this one features a lot more funky action – blacksploitation grooves mixed in with some of the older-styled tunes, all taken into great cop show big band territory by Chaquito! There's a few Brit numbers here mixed in with better-known American themes – and titles include "Bullitt", "The Anderson Tapes", "They Call Me Mister Tibbs", "Our Man Flint", "Money Is", "Shaft", and "The French Connection". TV Thrillers features loads of great 70s tunes, plus a few 60s numbers too – most of them thrillers, as you'd guess from the title – which means a fair bit of crime and cop grooves in the mix! Arrangements are tight, very much in the best spirit of the originals, with lots of great 70s touches – and titles include "It Takes A Thief", "Mission Impossible", "The Name Of The Game", "Hawaii 5-0", "Softly Softly", "Mannix", "I Spy", "Callan", and "Troubleshooters". © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.
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.
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.
