By the end of the 60s, Brit jazz/beat player Graham Bond had made the shift, like so many other UK contemporaries, from straighter material to sounds that had a more rock-based influence. In a way, since Bond had started out in an earlier mix of rock and jazz, one that was more R&B influenced, he was probably the most successful of his era in this manner – but he'd also taken a very strange turn towards the mystical by this point, and was adding in a lot of hippy dippy (and possibly Kenneth Anger-influenced) references to magick and otherworldly forces. At the core of this stuff, there's some strong jazz-based playing, but there's also a fair bit of vocals that are fine if you dig prog/jazz/avant rock lyrics, especially of the Brit jazz rock variety. Titles include "Forbidden Fruit", "I Put My Magick On You", "Praise City of Light", "The Word Of Aeon", "The Qabalistic Cross", and "The Pentagram Ritual". 26 tracks in all, with the original notes from both LPs! © 1996-2021, 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.
