The Berlin wall's been down for over a decade, but it's taken years for the western club scene to finally notice the great grooves coming out of the Eastern Block scene! For years now, artists in nations formerly locked off from more familiar European circuits have been dabbling in styles that not only share some of the best styles of work by artists like those on the Compost and Schema labels, but which also bear some unique traces of the strands of jazz and funk that percolated through the once-Soviet nations in the 60s and 70s. This package does a great job of pulling together the best bits from the Eastern scene – and focuses on tracks that share a warm, jazz glow – and which bubble out with a soulful finish that will certainly have us looking for more work from these artists in the future! The set features tracks from Warsaw, Lubljana, Zagreb, Budapest, and Prague – and features a number of titles exclusive to this release! Titles include "Gold" by Innocent Sorcerers, "Tinkle Bells" by Electric Brother, "It's Just A Joke" by Rough & Ready, "Happy Dayz" by Klascik, "Free Climbing" by Painkiller Septet, "Bagdance" by Yannah, "Flyin Down To Rio" by Crate Soul Brothers, "Soul Oriental" by Onbeyond, and "Drop The Bomb (ZKA4T ft DJ Tall rmx)" by The Second Whorl.  © 1996-2021, 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.

Deep Jazz

Heaven & Earth
Perfect Toy (Germany), 2009. Used
An album that's every bit as hip as you'd expect from its Sam Rivers-inspired cover image – a beautiful tribute to the modal jazz scene of the 60s, particularly the work of John Coltrane and some of his followers on Impulse Records! Apart from a cover of "Naima", though, the set's ... CD

Groove Collective

Groove Collective
Giant Step/Reprise, 1994. Used
The group's first, with production courtesy the great Gary Katz, who's put a fine touch on many Steely Dan LPs. While we were a bit dismissive of this effort at the time, it's kind of become a bit of a watershed in retrospect, the high water mark for the American Acid Jazz scene, if a bit ... CD

Soul Bossa Trio

Dancing In The Street
Bomba (Germany), 1994. Used
A great album of jazzy bossa tracks – with a bit more going on than the band's first one, and a larger lineup joining in on a lot of the tracks. Includes their great take on Sivuca's version of "Ain't No Sunshine", an acid jazz club classic – plus lots of other goodies like ... CD

Sonar Kollektiv (Germany), 2005. Used
A mix of older electronic styles all filtered together nicely – and topped off by a few modern hip hop and cosmic soul touches! Slope's working here in the mode established by the "Komputa Groove" single – almost a recasting of the early 80s electro mode, but one that's all ... CD

Music from Archive, Sneaker Pimps, Lascelles Featuring Vanessa Darby, Lamb, Invisible Hands, Small World, Ceasefire, DJ Cam, Paint & the 13th Sign. CD
Instinct, 1993. Used
A really groundbreaking little set – the revival of bossa influence on the Japanese scene, presented here by a host of hip talents from the earliest years of the club jazz scene! The album's got a wonderful vibe through and through – a sound that was later taken up by bigger names from ... CD

Acid Jazz (UK), 1997. Used
One of the best compilations of acid jazz material we can think of – and a cool batch of tracks that are all new versions of older funky soundtracks! The sound is very 70s – with lots of electric keyboards, funky basslines, and heavy drums. Much better than some other efforts of this ... CD
Rhino/Elektra, 1980s. Used
16 tracks by Howard Hewett – the ex-lead singer of Shalamar who went onto become one of the 80s strongest quiet storm vocalists! The set begins with 2 from Shalamar – "This Is For The Lover In You" and "Somewhere There's A Love" – plus lots of other mellow ... CD
