Don't think "jazz funk", think more "funky soul", or "soulful jazz" – as the collection here is filled with classic 70s gems that really blur the boundary between styles! Almost all these cuts have a strong jazz base at the core, but also bring in lots of funk and soul elements as well – from tight rhythms, to soaring vocals, to other key elements that helped lots of these tracks crossover big at the time – and still stay strong all these many years later! The package is a reworking of a classic series from the London scene in the 80s – a set of collections that was key to the rare groove scene at the time – and the 3CD set features 30 tracks that include "Whistle Bump" by Deodato, "Black Is The Color" by Wilbert Longmire, "El Bobo" by Webster Lewis, "Westchester Lady" by Bob James, "Let The Music Play" by Charles Earland, "Strut" by Chico Hamilton, "Rock Creek Park" by The Blackbyrds, "Inherit The Wind" by Wilton Felder with Bobby Womack, "Harlem River Drive" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Mister Magic" by Grover Washington, "Love Will Bring Us Back Together Again" by Roy Ayers, "Love Has Come Around" by Donald Byrd, "Expansions" by Lonnie Liston Smith, "Movin" by Brass Construction, "Always There" by Ronnie Laws, "Open Your Mind" by Kleeer, and lots lots more!  © 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.

The American take on the sound of bossa nova – a mode that started almost as soon as the first sounds headed north from Rio, and which grew to become a very important contribution to the music in the 60s! We love the originals by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Luis Bonfa, Joao Gilberto, and others ... CD
Bouzouki Joe, Late 60s/1970s. Used
A full plate of funky freakout grooves from the Turkish scene – compiled one and all from 7-inch records made from the end of the 60s to the dawn of the 80s! It's a mix of psych folk, funk, more traditional buzzing strings and hypnotic melodies – pretty wonderful all the way! Turkey's ... CD

The kind of record that makes us mighty proud to live in the Windy City – and a long-overdue look at the wealth of rare club, disco, and soul cuts bubbling in the Chicago underground at the end of the 70s! During the early part of the decade, the city was widely known for some super-huge ... CD

One of the funkiest box sets we've ever seen – and amazingly issued by an American major label! The 4CD package is a treasure trove of funky work from a decade of Warner Brothers, Atlantic Records, and related labels – tunes pulled both from mainstream album releases and much more ... CD

Funky Tales
Excello, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
A whole host of great funky tracks from the southern Excello/A-Bet/Mankind labels! Loads of groovy stuff like "Little Royal Freeze" by Little Royal, "Maybe Your Baby" by Nazty, "Do Your Thing" by Marva Whitney, "Born to Wander" by Maceo, "I'd Do It All ... CD
Timeless/Dopeness Galore (Netherlands), 2006. Used
Heavily reworked versions of tunes from the jazz catalog of Timeless Records – not so much remixes as they are new takes on older tracks by Pharoah Sanders, Art Blakey, Batida, and others! The style here is almost like that of Madlib's Blue Note project – in which the core originals ... CD
Rhino, 1970s. Used
Features work by James Brown, Sly & The Family Stone, Curtis Mayfield, Kool & The Gang, Rufus, O'Jays, and others! CD
BBE (UK), Mid 90s. Used
New York house from the Muggsy label – an imprint that was an offshoot of the well-known Henry Street Records, but which focused on more stripped-down sounds from the underground! The tunes here all have some great old school touches at the core – like warm keyboards, a funky disco ... CD

Grant Green

Street Of Dreams
Blue Note, 1964. Used
One of our favorite albums ever from guitarist Grant Green – an amazingly stretched-out session that's served up with a good deal of modal jazz in the rhythms – and a date that features killer work from Larry Young on organ and Bobby Hutcherson on vibes! The pair join Green in a ... CD
Columbia, 1960. Used
A beautiful collaboration between Miles Davis and the great Gil Evans – and perhaps the most perfectly realized of all their projects! The album's got a wonderfully unified feel – as it begins with long compositions that have a distinct Spanish-tinge (and not a Latin-tinge, which is an ... CD
