Electric Happiness

CD (Item 966404) Deja Vu (Italy), 2008 — Condition: Used
$16.99 ...

CD

The grooviest set we've heard so far from Sam Paglia – no surprise, given that he's issued this album on the ultra-cool DejaVu label! As on previous Paglia efforts, the keyboards are strongly in the lead on most numbers – mostly Hammond, but also some Fender Rhodes, Wurlitzer piano, clavinet, and moog – all sweet keys used in a variety of settings, from 60s mod soul, to slow-stepping bossa, moogy madness, and more upbeat funk! A number of cuts are instrumental, but there's also a few vocal numbers too – sung by Sandra Cartolari on a few soulful tracks. Titles include "Vespa Soul", "Una Donna Scimmia", "Greasy", "Hotel Ukrania", "Sammy's Dream", "Mundial 70", "Fried Noodles", "Uncle David", "Let The Music Be The One", "La Nebbia Gratis", "Bobsamnova", and "Wandre".  © 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.
