Dusty Fingers, Vol. 9 Review

by Andy Kellman

The vinyl-based Dusty Fingers series is intended for sample hounds and lovers of the obscure. It searches high, low, and most imaginable points between for sample-ready material, whether it's oddball orchestral pop, rare groove, or a bizarre Italian film score. One slightly unnerving characteristic of the series is that short snippets -- typically just the break -- are occasionally provided instead of the full versions (thankfully this doesn't happen too often). Several series have provided a similar service, but few have dug this deep with such positive results. The ninth volume includes Roy Budd's "Being Tailed," the Head Band's "War on the Streets," Flash Fearless' "Super Snatch," Gerard McManon's "Bad Times," Barry Ungar's "Lightly Salted," Ed Ariete's "La Morte Accarezza a Mezzanotte," J.J. Johnson's "Pull Jabal Pull," and Ron Tutt & Jim Keltner's "Improv."
