A pivotal album in the career of British organist James Taylor – and a great one! The record has James breaking past the standard soul jazz format of some of his earlier albums – into a more complicated jazz funk sound that's infused with the spacious 70s grooves of Johnny Hammond, and some of the more sophisticated R&B production that was coming out of England at the time, from groups like Soul II Soul and Brand New Heavies. Noel McKoy sings lead vocals on a number of tracks, and a bunch more are excellent funky instrumentals with a great 70s sound. Titles include "Oscar", "The Money", "JTQ Theme", "Samba For Bill & Ben", "Fat", "Peace Song", and "Love The Life". © 1996-2020, 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.
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.
