Although this set came out in 1994, after the early years of the Brand New Heavies, it's actually a great compilation of rare and unreleased early stuff by the group! The set's a real treat if you've always liked their first release, but haven't really grooved to the later ones, because the sound ... (Neo Soul, New Grooves)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
