Weird and wonderful work from the Southeast Asian scene of the 60s – very cool grooves that show a heavy influence from American rockers of the time! The lyrics here are often sung in English, and the music is filled with the same sort of jangly guitars, driving drums, and mod-styled rhythms you'd find in US rock and roll from the mid 60s – but the overall sound is quite unusual, too – given the Asian origin of all these cuts! It's almost like hearing the 60s through some sort of odd prism that distorts the familiar – which makes for a fascinating set of tracks you'll be hard pressed to find elsewhere! Titles include "One To Nine Walkin" by Patrina, "Sudi Sudi Kah Dikau" by Ismail Haron & The Guys, "Swim Swim Swim" by The Spacemen, "Lonely Heart" by Rita Chao, "Flamingo" by The Bees, "Mr Twister" by The Crescendos, "The Second Spring" by Hai Fei, and "Just Because" by The Dee Tee's. © 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.
