The full length debut for Michael Kiwanuka – a record that stands out brilliantly, not only for it's strength and depth – but also because almost no one is making airy, often acoustic soul music on a major label in 2012! The record has been compared to Terry Callier's work with producer Charles Stepney in the early 70s – and that's not off base at all, but Kiwanuka has a sound and a voice of his own. The songs are engaging and immediate, his voice confident and assured – and the instrumentation is pretty amazing for a contemporary soul album! We're talking sax, trumpets, shakers, flutes, bells, blocks and more. A wonderful surprise! Includes "Tell Me A Tale", "I'm Getting Ready", "I'll Get Along", "Rest", "Home Again", "Bones", "Always Waiting", "I Won't Lie", "Any Day Will Do Fine", "Worry Walks Beside Me" and "Lasan".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), Early 70s. New Copy
One of Billy Paul's greatest albums ever – or perhaps the greatest! The record is an amazing blend of soul, jazz, and a soaring sense of spiritualism that's not only rare for Billy Paul – but which makes the record sound different than any other Philly International LP from the time! ... CD
