CD

✈

A fantastic legacy in music from Mohamed Mazouni – an Algerian singer who worked towards political ends during the heady changes of the 60s – and who soon left his native country work over a decade's worth of recording in Paris! The Paris/Arab continuum was stronger than ever after the Algerian war – and the music of Mazouni was a key sound of that moment – songs that drew heavily on the elements of his roots, but which also brought in sounds of exile too – occasional electric guitar riffs, folded in with percussion, stringed instruments, and exotic woodwinds – all topped by the very unique vocals of the man himself. This double-length package features notes in both French and English, really getting at the special hybrid taking place – and titles include "Clichy", "Cherie Madame", "Tu N'Es Plus Comme Avant", "L'Amour Maak", "Je Pense A Celle", "Mon Amour Il Est Gentil", "Daag Dagui", "Adieu La France", "La Madrague", and "20 Ans En France".  © 1996-2020, 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.

CS Crew

Funky Pack
Cultures Of Soul, 1976. Used
A massive set from Nigeria's CS Crew – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! The bass is super-heavy on these grooves – way more so than on other Afro Funk records of the time, and in ways that easily match, if not beat, the early best by Fatback Band and Kool & The Gang ... CD
Philips/Universal (Spain), 1972. Used
The album may have "flamenco" in the title, but in the hands of Paco De Lucia, the style is something else entirely – a richly personal vision of music – played by Paco with incredible deftness on the guitar, yet with a way that's never trying to show off, or bury feeling with ... CD

Sterns (UK), Late 40s/1950s. Used
Classic work by The Manhattan Brothers – a South African vocal quartet who drew heavily on modes from American groups like the Ink Spots or Mills Brothers, but who also managed to translate that sound into an important force in African pop! The recordings here are pulled from a host of older ... CD

Luaka Bop/Warner, 1995. Used
A great collection of tracks – and one of the first chance for most of us to hear the funkier side of sounds from Peru! The work isn't as full-on funky as Brazilian grooves from the time, but does share a very strong influence from American styles – and really goes way past any cliches ... CD
Now Again, 1975. Used
Searing sounds from 70s Zambia – from one of the hippest, funkiest, most sharp-edged groups on the scene! This sweet little set may well be the best album ever from Musi O Tunya – a perfect fusion of funky roots with lots of Afro Soul touches, and a wicked approach to the guitar that ... CD

Bombay Disco 2
Cultures Of Soul, 1980s. Used
Bombay grooves, but not just the disco promised in the title – as these cuts come mostly from the 80s years of Bollywood, and show Indian funk moving into a great new realm of styles! There's definitely a disco vibe at the core – and as in other scenes, the style stayed current a lot ... CD

Bobby Womack

Communication
United Artists, 1971. Used
One of the all-time great ones from Bobby Womack – and a set that definitely helped push the singer into the mainstream of soul in the 70s! Bobby says thanks to Sly Stone on the back of this album – and it's clear that he's gotten a good dose of Sly's funky soul to kick things up a bit ... CD
