Various — Disco 2.0 – Fever's Rising Again ... LP 28.99

A sweet set of 21st Century disco tunes – all material that seems to draw strongly from the styles of the glory days of the dancefloor, but still pepper the music with a few contemporary touches too! The work is great – usually no-nonsense and stripped-down, without any of the too-commercial modes that eventually sank the disco scene at the end of the 70s – but the overall sound is warmer and more sensual than house or other contemporary club styles too – even though a number of these cuts focus more on instrumental passages than vintage disco from back in the day! There's definitely a bit of a French club twist here – that sound from the scene where disco never really died – and titles include "La Lune" by L'Imperatrice, "Shenzhen V" by Bon Voyage Organization, "Makin Love" by Marvin & Guy, "Acid Disco" by Leonxleon, "Running (The Chase)" by Bufiman, "Theuz Hamtaak" by S3A, "Nothing Gold (Tood Terje rmx)" by Jakim, and one classic cut – "Mary Hartman Mary Hartman (inst)" by Sounds Of Inner City.  © 1996-2018, 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.

Strut (UK), 2000. Used
The quirky 80s downtown club scene lives again in this chilling post-disco collection from Strut! The set's got a similar feel to the 9 O'Clock Drop set on Nuphonic – and fits in nicely with the rediscovery of groups like ESG and 23 Skidoo. The cuts are extremely hard to pin down – a ... CD

... CD
Ace/BGP (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used
Disco grooves from a source you might not expect – the Japanese scene of the 70s, which was home to a surprisingly strong array of records that were perfect for the clubs! In retrospect, maybe the music's not such a surprise – given that 70s Japan was also a hotbed of electric fusion, ... CD
P&P/Suss'd (UK), 1970s. Used 2 CDs
The funkiest work we've ever heard from the mighty P&P family of labels – a set that's quite different than the usual disco, club, and soul we know from Patrick Adams and Peter Brown – served up in a host of rare funky 45s and a few key 12" singles! The sound here is deep, ... CD
Kind Of Soul
Small/Sony (France), 1970s. Used
A beautiful collection of mellow soul grooves from the 70s! The artists are all pretty well known, and you'll probably recognize more than a few tracks – but the overall package is great, and the cuts are put together to make the kind of a set that you can just put on and leave playing the ... CD

Features Gladys Knight, Montell Jordan, N'Dea Davenport, Mick Fleetwood & others. CD
Union Square (UK), 1970s. Used 2CD
Features Roy Ayers, Curtis Mayfied, The O Jays, the Bar Kays & others. CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 70s. Used
An excellent collection of tight modern soul and funky uptempo numbers – cuts that aren't really disco, but which are smoother than the usual funk you'd hear on the Jazzman label – a really unique hybrid that's hand-picked by the mighty Fryer! Lots of the grooves here have a cool indie ... CD
32 Jazz/Muse, 1970s. Used
A terrible title – but a great package of tunes! The set brings together some of the more groove-heavy tracks from the 70s catalog of Muse Records – a label that's not always known for its funkier side. The package features 9 full tracks in all – all with a great take on 70s ... CD
Disco Train 3
Universal (Japan), Late 70s/1980s. Used
A sweet ride on the Disco Train – served up in a non-stop mix, built from a selection of classic cuts from the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – all of them some well-remembered gems from the dancefloor! Despite the "disco" in the title, the series also features some ... CD

Herakles (Finland), 2016. Used
Jimi Tenor looks shrunken in size on the cover, but that certainly hasn't happened to his music – which just seems bigger and more expansive on this wonderful release! The set's still very much in the spiritual jazz mode that Tenor's been touching for the past decade or so – but it ... CD
