Album Notes
Compilation producers: Michael Cohen, Bas Hartong, Jeff Moskow.Digitally remastered by Suha Gur (Polygram Studios).Pure Funk is a compilation that captures the essence of funk, with a variety of top-selling, danceable selections that illustrate the dexterous musicianship and powerful arrangements indicative of the genre. Highlighted are landmark theme songs from 70's blaxploitation epics such as "Shaft," "Car Wash," and "Superfly," demonstrating how lush orchestrations entwine with the pulsing rhythms that define funk.Legendary female vocalists such as Chaka Khan and Patti Labelle are captured in their prime with their respective glass-shattering performances on "Tell Me Something Good," and Labelle's "Lady Marmalade." Classics like the Parliament hit "Flashlight" and The Average White Band's "Pick Up The Pieces" feature some of the most distinctive bass work in funk. Platinum-selling songs such as the rousing "Jungle Boogie" from Kool and the Gang and the rousing "Kung Fu Fighting" by Carl Douglas fill in the groove that flows from one rump-shaking song to the next.

Disc: VG+
Booklet: VG+
Case shows light shelf wear



I grade conservatively following the guidelines listed below.

Keep in mind that grading is fairly subjective, but I try to give the most honest and reasonable grade possible.  I want buyers to know exactly what to expect when they receive their item.  I have a perfect 5-Star rating for "Item As Described."

***I use the DISC'S condition for the auction listing, and I will grade the insert separately.***

I do not grade jewel cases, but I will note if they have shelf wear, which most will.  I NEVER ship CDs in cases that are cracked or have broken hinges.  However, used CDs come with used jewel cases, and most of them will not be perfect and like new.  For early pressings I will note if the jewel case is smooth-sided.

-Brand New: Sealed in factory plastic

-Like New (Mint): I rarely use this grade for used CDs, unless the disc is MINT and truly looks "like new."  If a disc has even the slightest scratch, I use a grade of "very good."  I will grade the disc and the insert separately.

-Very Good (VG): Condition ranges from "signs of light use" up to "near mint" (NM).  Disc may have light scratches from minimal to light play.  Insert may show light use, but no tears, creases or bent corners.  VG inlay cards may have a hole punch in the UPC.  I will grade disc and insert separately with one of four grades: VG-, VG, VG+, NM

-Good (G): "Signs of moderate use."  Disc may have a fair amount of scratches that do not affect playback.  Insert may have tears, creases, bent corners or tab indentations, but is complete unless otherwise noted. I will grade disc and insert separately with one of three grades: G-, G, G+

-Acceptable: I do not sell discs with this grade.  If it's not good enough to call good, I won't sell it.




1st CD: $2.98
Each Additional CD: $1.00

All purchases of one, two, or three CDs are shipped First Class via USPS.  Purchases of four or more CDs will be shipped media mail via USPS.  Box sets may be shipped Media Mail, First Class or Priority Mail, depending on their size, weight and value.

I ship all single and double CDs in the usual 7x7 poly bubble mailers used by most sellers.  These padded envelopes prove to be sufficient protection for the CD cases about 99% of the time.  For more valuable items, I will further cushion the CD case with heavy cardboard liners.  Regardless of these measures, USPS will occasionally crack a case during shipping.  I am more than willing to insure your package at your request and expense, but I cannot be held accountable for damaged uninsured items.  Please email me at auction end if you desire insurance.



In the RARE occasion that an item needs to be returned, I ask that it be done in a timely fashion (you have up to 14 days), and a full refund will be issued immediately upon receipt.

I offer a NO QUESTIONS ASKED return policy.  If a disc skips or is in a condition that is not to your liking, please email me and I will issue a refund upon return of the item.  There are people out there who will take advantage of my liberal return policy...please don't be one of these people!  Buying a CD with the intention of ripping it into your iTunes and then returning it to a seller is STEALING!

If you have ANY problem with ANY item, PLEASE contact me before leaving negative feedback.  I check my emails frequently and I will address any issue you may have QUICKLY.  You can see by my feedback that happy customers are important to me!


Don't hesitate to email me with any questions!

Thanks for stopping by!
