Into Somethin' Vol 1 – Presented by Tony Minvielle – A Conscious Journey Into Soul & Jazz

CD (Item 930583) Sound Of Everything (UK), 2015 — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...

CD

A stunning little set – one we fell in love with from the very first note! The collection is wonderful – some of the freshest underground soul we've heard in years – almost a re-lighting of the UK fire that burned so strongly a few years ago – but with a very vibrant new sound as well! The music is very warm, but not in a contemporary soul sort of way – and indeed, maybe even deeper than most underground tracks too – as there's a lot of jazz in the instrumentation, and even the electric touches are more geared towards slightly cosmic elements, but without ever hitting a dancefloor mode. The whole thing's a great reminder that there's still folks out there making positive, forward-thinking soul – and our hat's off to compiler Toni Minvielle for doing such a great job. Titles include "Distance Can Be Sweet" by Personal Life, "Distractions" by Liz Elensky, "Miss Purty" by Cory Henry, "Let The Music Play" by Collective Peace, "Sea Snake" by Carl Hudson, "Two Sides" by Pat Van Dyke, "You Go To My Head" by Lauren Desberg with Gretchen Parlato, "Electric Ladyland" by Jesse Fischer, "Music Power" by Tommaso Cappellato & Astral Travel, and "Todos Os Santo" by Mauricio Maestro with Nana Vasconcelos.  © 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.
