CD

A fitting tribute to two of the most important DJs in London over the past 20 years! Sure, Gilles P has a worldwide radio show, Russ Dewbury's got his Afro funk grooves, and Keb Darge has redefined the funk scene – but way before any of them Norman Jay was blowing out the rare grooves in London, hipping that city to a motherlode of great soul and funk back when most folks were still twiddling with post-punk club tracks or bad knock-off acid house records. Teamed with his brother Joey, the pair has been a seminal part of the Notting Hill carnival every year – as their Good Times Sound System pumps out a mix of club, soul, reggae, and funk as a never-ending soundtrack for this massive annual party. Nuphonic have come up with a stunning tribute to the pair, serving up a heaping platter of great rare tracks that perfectly capture the Good Times spirit, with enough music to take you late into the afternoon of any carnival Saturday. Titles include "Funky Nassau" by Ray Munnings, "Open Up" by Chic, "If You Really Love Me" by Stevie Wonder, "Thank You (MAW mix)" by Bebe Winans, "Mission Impossible" by Byron Lee & The Dragonaires, "Prophecy" by Fabian, "Optimistic" by Sounds Of Blackness, "Rebel Without A Pause" by Public Enemy, "Sound Of Da Police" by KRS One, "Stone To The Bone (7" version)" by James Brown, "Fearless" by Incognito, "El Bobo" by Webster Lewis, "California Soul" by Marlena Shaw, "Just Us" by Two Tons Of Fun, "Hanging On A String (ext mix)" by Loose Ends, "I Heard That" by Eddie Russ, and "I Hear Music In The Streets" by Unlimited Touch. 27 tracks in all!  © 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.
