Plantation Lullabies

CD (Item 534662) Maverick, 1993 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 40

This record, as we're sure you know, is a spunky bit of hip hop-inflected R&B, with the kind of sinister groove that got Me'Shell noticed immediately after the record was released. It got a bit overplayed and overblown at the time it was released – but it actually holds up well over the years, especially considering the wealth of modern soul singers who've been inspired by it. Includes the single "If That's Your Boyfriend", plus "I'm Diggin You", "Soul On Ice", "Call Me", and "Picture Show".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Groove Theory
Epic, 1995. Used
The only album ever from Groove Theory – but the set that introduced the world to Amel Larrieux – whose vocal talents alone are worth the price of admission! The feel here is a bit more mainstream soul than some of Amel's later work – but given the mid 90s date of release, the ... CD

Lift Your Spirit
Interscope, 2014. Used
Real spirit-lifting sounds from Aloe Blacc – a set that starts with a sense of righteousness right on the very first track – almost a gospel sense of spirit, mixed with Aloe's wonderfully secular groove! The beats are lean, the vocals are clean, and the record's got a tight snap all ... CD

Shanachie, 2014. Used
They definitely got the title right on this one –as Noel Gourdin sings in a contemporary urban mode, but with lots of the deeper inflections we remember from classic southern soul – a wonderful blend that really makes the record his best so far! Production is nice and lean – ... CD

Salt
Verve, 2003. Used
A sweet young jazz singer – steeped in the traditions of Dee Dee Bridgewater and Dianne Reeves, striking out on her own in a really solid debut album! The set's got a warm, jazzy feel – lots of keyboards and piano in the backings, but done in a way that lifts up the voice of Lizz on a ... CD

Dome (UK), 2004. Used
A great remake of the classic "Listen To The Music" – lifted from Incognito's Black Sunshine album, and served up here in a sparkling remix by Ski Oakenfull! The original's great enough, but the new mix has some very kicking beats – and it's backed here by the nicely tippling ... CD

Orchard
Verve, 2008. Used
One of the most deeply soulful sets we've ever heard from singer Lizz Wright – a record that has an even more acoustic feel than before, which really opens up the sound nicely! Given the depth of Wright's vocals, this shift is a really great move – one that lets her really stand out ... CD
