Two Sisters From Bagdad

CD (Item 891525) Jazzman (UK), 1973 — Condition: Used
$12.99 ...

CD

An incredibly righteous album from the Detroit scene of the early 70s – nothing like anything you'd expect with "Bagdad" in the name – even more obscure than some of the city's spiritual jazz treasures on the Tribe and Strata labels from the time – and done for a very unusual theatrical presentation that had a very limited run! The overall vibe is hard to peg – the album's got that very special mix of music and knowledge that you'd get on Chicago gems like the work of Paris Smith or Haki R Madhubuti, or the Black Fairy album – with sounds that encompass jazz, funk, soul, and gospel – but come out with a result that's completely unique and individual! There's a small group on the set – using strong organ, flute, trumpet, and tenor over percussion – and the singers shift between a cool female group called The Intimates Of Soul, other soloists, and leader EJ Garrison, who handled arrangements and production. Titles include the funky "Thoughs Were The Days", plus "Happy & Blessed", "Two Sisters From Bagdad", "Good-By Suzy", "Fantasy", "Mr Devil", and "Yes I Do".  © 1996-2019, 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.
