Sure, maybe you've cursed Tim Rice over the years for the overblown musical work he's done in collaboration with Andrew Lloyd Webber – but back at the time of these recordings, he was firmly entrenched in the rock scene going down in 60s London – working in modes that ranged from rough and bluesy to freakbeat funky! This excellent collection takes a wide look at Rice's early years – and features an array of tracks either penned or produced by him, performed mostly by lesser-known artists who finally get their due in the extended notes of the package. The whole thing feels like some of the best compilations of this sort on Cherry Red/RPM – overflowing with groovy British 60s numbers we might have missed otherwise! Titles include "Wish You'd Show Me" by The Nocturnes, "That's My Story" by The Nightsift, "Goodbye Little Girl" by The Shell, "Someday Soon" by Murray Head, "Down Thru Summer" by Ross Hannaman, "Albert" by Tales Of Justine, "1969" by Ross Hannaman, "Daniele" by Daniele Noel, and "Believe Me I Will" by Sacha Distel. © 1996-2019, 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.
