Banana Connection

CD (Item 979343) Rambling (Japan), 2002 — Condition: Used
$18.99 ...

CD

A very organic set of grooves – from the banana-produced packaging, to Spiritual Life-styled tunes on the set! The album does a great job of blending together on-location sound bits – recorded in Haiti and elsewhere – with a mixture of upbeat and mellow tunes that bubble over with richly organic elements and lots of acoustic touches! Titles include "River Walk" by Hajime Yoshizawa & Goro, "Dream Of Blue Curve" by Shiba, "Sketch On Banana Paper" by Calm, "Leogan Dub" by Kensei, "Sweet Herb" by Keita & Goro, "Kokoro" by Jephte Guillaume, and "Mermaid" by Kaoru Inuoe & Goro.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print, includes obi.)

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.

Trouser Jazz
Ninja Tune (UK), 2002. Used
Another whimsical jazzy beat party from Mr Scruff.
