Journeys By DJ – Gilles Peterson & Norman Jay Desert Island Mix

CD (Item 993279) V2 (UK), 1970s/1980s/1990s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



An excellent package that features a CD apiece of each of these legendary DJ's spinning their favorite tunes back to back! Although Gilles and Norman have handled a lot of other compilations like this in recent years, this one's one of the first to really capture the spirit of their uniquely London take on the world of groove. The tracks are mixed, but pretty spaciously, so that most of them appear in nearly full entirety, with a smooth ride between tunes. Disc 1 features Gilles' tunes – a lot of new ones that include "Comfy Club" by Pnu Riff, "What's Wrong With Groovin" by Letta Mbulu, "Dingwalls" by Mark Murphy, "Gabriel" by Roy Davis with Peven Everett, "Ding Ding Ding" by I Cube, "Jazz With Attitude" by Bel Air Project, "Carnival Supreme" by Los Quatros Diablos, "Fedimes Flight" by Jazzanova, "Submersible" by Juryman & Spacer, "Love Supreme" by Ballistic Brothers, and Wondering" by Drop Zone Productions. Norman comes up with 17 more tunes for disc two – including "Breakin In Space" by Key Matic, "Family Tree (disco version)" by Family Tree, "Wanted Dead Or Alive" by Voices Of East Harlem, "Make Me Believe In You" by Patti Jo, "Afro Latin Concrete" by Red Cloud & Digital Hemp, "The Truth" by Truth All Stars, "Blacker Revisited" by Ballistic Brothers, "Love Supreme" by Alexander Robotnick, "Watermelon Man" by East Harlem Bus Stop, "Calm Down" by Most Wanted, and "Stars" by Nerissa.  © 1996-2022, 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.

Blue Note, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used
No blues, but very much in the pocket – thanks to a killer collection of classics from the mighty Blue Note label! The set's straight jazz all the way through – but all that near-perfect Blue Note quality from the label's most classic years – that stretch when its artists were ... CD

Kay Dee, 1970s. Used
A treasure trove of rare funk – all hand-picked by Keb Darge and Kenny Dope, two names we trust more than most when it comes to rare funk! Most of these tracks are of 70s vintage, and a handful are presented here in new edits by Kenny – not remixes, and very much in the spirit of the ... CD

Blue Note, 1998. Used
Despite the "primitivist" sort of leanings you might expect from the "roots" in the title, this is actually a nice batch of tracks from the catalogs of Blue Note and World Pacific during the 60's – and they're all jazz tracks that have a slight Africanist influence, but ... CD

Yellow/Astralwerks, 2000. Used
An excellent collection of house tracks – old and new – selected and blended by Dimitri From Paris! The overall theme is an imaginary party at the Playboy Mansion – but from our personal experience, we can tell you that this set kicks a lot harder than the dancefloor at Hef's pad ... CD
Irma (Italy), 1999. Used
Hard to believe that acid jazz has been around so long that there's a series of "classics" – but it's true, and this set's filled with a lot of nice cuts from the "old days" that are now out of print. Rather than just acid jazz, the set's kind of a mix of acid jazz and ... CD
