A record that was an instant classic from the moment it was first released – and a set that's still pretty darn pleasing all these many years later! At a time when mainstream soul was often too smooth or too poppy, D'Angelo came along and not only found a way to return the music to the years of its power with singers like Al Green or Marvin Gaye – but also managed to bring in some of the best hip hop elements of his generation too, at a level that was far more successful than most other blends that had been tried before! Production is nice and lean, and super-crispy – at a level that so many folks are still copying all these years later – and the set's full of classics that include "Cruisin", "When We Get By", "Smooth", "Me & Those Dreamin Eyes Of Mine", "Brown Sugar", "Alright", and "Jonz In My Bonz". This fantastic 2CD set is overflowing with bonus material – 21 more tracks that include "Lady (just tha beat inst)", "Brown Sugar (alt version)", "Brown Sugar (Incognito molasses mix)", "Me & Those Dreamin Eyes Of Mine (two way street mix)", "Cruisin (cut the sax mix)", "Me & Those Dreamin Eyes Of Mine (Def Squad rmx with Redman)", "Lady (CJ Mackintosh mix radi)", "Cruisin (God
made me funky rmx)", "Brown Sugar (acapella)", "Me & Those Dreamin Eyes Of Mine (acapella)", "Lady (2B3 shake dat ass mix)", "Cruisin (Dallas Austin rmx)", and "Brown Sugar (soul inside 808 mix)". Also features a big booklet with a new essay by Nelson George.
