Como Mamas — Move Upstairs ... CD 12.99

A second fantastic set from this Mississippi gospel trio – and one that mixes their heavenly vocals with a bit of Daptone Records funk! The set's produced by Bosco Mann, who also plays bass in the quartet that backs up the singers – and the groove is raw and gritty, with a vibe that almost makes you feel like you stumbled upon some unreleased master tapes from the 70s in the vaults of Excello Records! There's few folks we could ever trust to get a gospel funk record this right – and the use of the vocals is tremendous along with the grooves – really stepping out on cuts that include "Move Upstairs", "Out Of The Wilderness", "99 & A Half Won't Do", "I Can't Thank Him Enough", "He's Mine", and "So Good To Me".  © 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.

East Green (UK), 2016. Used
Heavy funk, with some 70s Afro touches too – served up with some help from the Mighty Mocambos, Spike Orchestra, The Snitch, and other deep funk combos too! The horns here are nice and heavy, but used in a way that's different from both familiar Afro Funk and Ethio-styled work too – ... CD

B Crack (Netherlands), 2013. Used
Razor-sharp funk from The Jig – a group who come across with a really classic feel throughout – and a vibe that's a lot like The JBs at their early 70s best! Like that legendary group, these guys have a great way of fusing their horn parts with their rhythms – compressing trumpet ... CD
Sabougla Voices
Big Legal Mess, 2013. Used
Amazing sounds from the Mississippi underground – sung by an artist with equal parts gospel and blues in his background, and recorded here with a style that's a perfect fusion of both! The album's still got a mighty raw feel at the core, but the songs themselves hang together with hooks and ... CD

A full-length cooker from Akoya Afrobeat Ensemble – a group who normally manage to pack an album's worth of energy into a 12" single! Given that talent, you can imagine how much is going on here – thanks to some very long tracks that serve up a classic 70s-styled take on Afrobeat ... CD
