✨✧ Macy GrayId ... CD
Epic, 2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
Macy Gray's steps to a higher level on The Id – this is no "sophomore slump" to our ears – actually a helluva lot better than her big selling debut! As on her first set, Macy's vocals are wonderful – totally unique, with that warm raspy soulful style that makes her one of the most instantly recognizable soul artists since Al Green. The production is very strong too – with a sound that's new and fresh compared to most chart soul acts, but which also has its roots in the Columbia crossover sound of the late 60s, with traces of artists like Sly Stone and Janis Joplin all colliding into one cool groovy sound! Titles include "Hey Young World (part 2)", featuring Slick Rick, plus "Blowin Up Your Speakers", "Forgiveness", "My Nutmeg Phantasy" (featuring Angie Stone & Mos Def), "Sweet Baby" (featuring Erykah Badu), "Sexual Revolution", and "Relating To A Psychopath".

✨✧ Groove TheoryGroove Theory ... CD
Epic, 1995. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 sound is still plenty underground – and filled with the warmer tones and deeper soul styles that wouldn't be that common until years later when the Neo Soul scene rose to prominence. The overall package is the work of former Mantronix member Bryce Wilson – who plays some keys, and ensures that the rhythms are never too bombastic to overwhelm Amel's vocals. Titles include the massive stepper's cut "Tell Me" that hit huge here in Chicago – plus "Baby Luv", "Didja Know", "Come Home", "Hello It's Me", "Hey U", "Good 2 Me", "You're Not The 1", and "Boy At The Window".

✨✧ Groove TheoryKeep Tryin' (hip hop mix w/rap, go-go mix, hip hop mix no rap, dream sequence, dream sequence inst, wet mix) ... 12-inch
Epic, 1995. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Another single off Groove Theory's stellar debut, that introduced the world to Amel Larrieux, as a lead vocalist at least. Crisp hip hop influenced beats with a nice laidback vibe. The "Go Go" mix isn't actually Go Go, just another nice downtempo version, and the "Dream Sequence" makes more of a nod towards Acid Jazz, but the "Wet" mix is our favorite, smooth and spare. (Soul, Neo Soul) 12-inch, Vinyl record

Epic, 2000. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A great major label single from Amel Larrieux – and one that features a sweetly thumping groover that should have been a hit! The track's a bit more mainstream than some of Larrieux's later work, but it's still plenty darn great – graced with really wonderful vocals throughout! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Glenn LewisDon't You Forget It (voc, inst, tv track, acapella) ... 12-inch
Epic, 2001. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $2.99
Smooth R&B from Glenn – produced by Andre Harris with a nice Philly bounce. Lifted from the Red Star compilation – and a tasty bit of NuSoul that will fit in nicely with other recent grooves from the Philly scene! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Jill ScottExperience – Jill Scott 826+ ... CD
Epic/Hidden Beach, 2001. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Ok so she's got a Grammy – but that makes us love her even more! Jill Scott is one of the greatest soul artists to emerge in the past decade – and this second album avoids the usual "sophomore slump" by showing a whole new side of her talents! Disc one is a great live set – showing that Jill's organic talent isn't the product of studio trickery, and can conjure up as much warmth in person as it can on disc. The backing is tight, jazzy, and with a different finish than you might be accustomed to from Jill's first LP – less hip hop beats and more real funk drumming, a fuller group instrumental sound with lots of nice solos, and over it all, incredible vocals from Jill! The set's got smoking live versions of "One Is The Magic #", "A Long Walk", "Love Rain", "Getting In The Way", "Fatback Taffy", "He Loves Me", and "Do You Remember". CD

✨✧ Dam-FunkToeachizown (2CDs) ... CD
Stones Throw, 2009. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Galactic funk & synth soul from Dam-Funk – his epic full length debut Toeachizown for Stones Throw – and a record that should be a game changer for the southern Cali ambassador of cosmic funk beats, heavy bass and synth grooves!Dam-Funk is part throwback to the electro era – his vintage synths, bass and drum machine grooves are strongly rooted in the end of the 70s and first few years of the 80s vibe, but he's putting his own modern spin on the sounds, keeping it vital and fresh, and quite likely to be bitten by a bevy of superstar producers to come! Occasionally with slow jam or tripped out vocals, but with longer instrumental jams, Dam Funk's fusion of old school and future funk is in a cosmic realm of its own! CD version has 24 tracks on 2CDs: "Let's Take Off (Far Away)", "Come On Outside", "Mirrors", "One Less Day" feat G Shaft, "Brookside Park", "The Sky Is Ours", "(My Funk Goes) On & On", "Searchin' 4 Funk's Future", "Keep Lookin 2 The Sky", "10 West", "I Gots 2 Be Done Wit U", "Spacecapades", "In Flight" and more.
