Various — Seafaring Strangers – Private Yacht ... LP 19.99

That's Seafaring Strangers, not to be confused with the rootsy vibe of the Wayfaring Strangers on a similarly-named Numero Group series – as these guys are playing tightly-crafted sounds that soar to the mainstream – with a vibe that's obviously classy enough to get them admission to somebody's private yacht! And yet, in keeping with the Numero spirit, all of the music here is pretty darn obscure – pulled from obscure 70s records that were created in the shadow of major label AOR – all music that aimed for the smooth, jazzy vibe of bigger records by artists like Steely Dan or Boz Scaggs – but never got any sort of wide-label release! The quality of the work here is wonderful – homegrown and personal, but put together in a way that's really sharp – showing that even if you love AOR, you don't have to stick to the big labels to find your treasures. In true Numero fashion, the whole thing comes with detailed notes, which show a lot of research into the music – and the fact that the whole thing was hardly an accident in the way that it came together. Titles include "Aquaintances", "Your Burning Love" by Steps, "Give Me Your Love" by Paul Skyland, "Dance Of Love" by Calvin Johnson, "One More Time" by Salty Miller, "Wrap Myself Up In Your Love" by Jim Spencer, "Never Gonna Let You Go" by Michael Miglio, "Please Analyze" by AJ Loria, "Sailing" by Gary Marks, "To Be Lonely" by Country Comfort, and "Back To The Streets" by Rudy Norman.  © 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.

Iron Butterfly

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
Atlantic, 1968. Used
The album that rocked a million dorm rooms back in the 60s – and for good reason, too – given that the title track is a side-long, totally jamming monster – the kind of track that was really revolutionary at the time, and which still has a hell of an impact all these many years ... CD

RJD2

Third Hand
XL, 2007. Used
Renowned indie beat-crafter RJD2 throws everyone a curve-ball and tosses his hat into the singer-songwriter arena. Although this album will inevitably draw comparisons to similar post-hiphop acts like Gnarls Barkley and The Gorillaz, it certainly holds it's own stylistically, and really shows RJ's ... CD

Stooges
Elektra, 1969. Used
A record that no home should be without – and a stunning set that still carries all the raw power it did way back in 1969! The album's an apocalyptic vision of the future – a future it helped to shape, give its influence over the years – and from start to finish, the whole thing ... CD

Iggy & The Stooges

Raw Power
Columbia, 1973. Used
One of the wildest records of the early 70s – and it's still pretty darn hard to argue with the power of this one – even if the meddling of the producers are nearly as legendary as the album itself! There's still such a manic energy the original release mix – one that clearly ... CD

Titles include "Try", "Maybe", "To Love Somebody", "Little Girl Blue", and "One Good Man" – plus the 3 bonus tracks "Dear Landlord", "Summertime" and "Piece Of My Heart". CD

Big Brother & The Holding Company

Big Brother & The Holding Company (plus bonus tracks)
Mainstream/Sony, 1967. Used
The first full album featuring the incredible voice of Janis Joplin, as the singer of Big Brother & The Holding Company! Even at this early point, it's clear that there's some really incredible things happening with this band. Originally released on Mainstream, the production is a bit thin ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1979/1980. Used
Killer new wave/post punk pop from the the UK's Photos, late of Satan's Rats, working bit of the Blondie groove on the main album and a rawer sound on the subsequent demo material! A twist of fate or two might have steered the Photos to greater pop success, but we're left with a very pleasing CD ... CD

Rima

This World
Compost (Germany), 2003. Used
A stunning debut from Rima – one of the most exciting acts in years on the always-exciting Compost Records! The group have a sound that's nicely jazzy – clearly steeped in influences from 70s fusion, but also done with the free-thinking sound of the current European underground. ... CD
