CD

✈
❔

A new concept in soulful music – live house tracks, performed by a great trio led by drummer, singer, songwriter Christian Urich – member of Cooley's Hot Box! Given their neat look and tie-wearing, you might be tempted to expect Tortured Soul to be a mod or funk combo – but upon hearing the first note of this great CD, you'll find they're something entirely different! The group's got a sweet bubbling groove that's simply tremendous – a mix of soulful vocals, sweet keys, and warm house-infused rhythms – in a style that's got traces of Peven Everett, The Rurals, and some of the current work on the New York scene – but which also has a surprising jazzy twist of its own! Tunes unfold easily one into the other – never going too far out on the rhythms, but keeping the whole album lively throughout – and although the set features some mixing work by Osunlade and DJ Spinna, the real charm and credit for the debut certainly comes from the group themselves! Titles include "I Might Do Something Wrong", "You Found A Way", "Fall In Love", "How's Your Life", "Epic", "Enjoy It Now", and "Love Everlasting".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Love Surreal
Purpose/E One, 2013. Used
Tremendous work from Bilal – and further proof that his life on the indie side of the soul spectrum has been a very good thing! There's a crispness to the record that crackles right from the start – slight cosmic touches in the beats, but never too over the top – just enough to ... CD

An excellent 4 track release by this soon-to-be famous soul singer from the current hot Atlanta scene!

Brand New Heavies
Delicious Vinyl, 1990. Used

D'Angelo

Voodoo
Virgin, 2000. Used
Sweet and gritty soul from D'Angelo – who takes a huge step into deeper territory on Voodoo – and it's one of the most monumental records of its time! On one level, Voodoo works as a nicely stripped-down session with a very classic soul feel. Gone are the overzealous flourishes that ... CD

Back To Black
Universal, 2006. Used
An incredible album from Amy Winehouse – even way better than her fantastic debut! Although a contemporary soul album, this one's steeped in tradition – soul styles that run the gamut from Detroit down to Kingston, and which are carried off here with a rougher, sharper-edged sound than ... CD
Sony, 1996. Used
A mindblower from Jamiroquai – the album that really broke them out of the box, thanks to an increasingly complicated sense of rhythm! For the set, Jay and the group pulled up some of the more dynamic sounds from the London underground, and wove them together with their increasingly great ... CD

Smoke City

Heroes Of Nature
Jive, 2001. Used
A really beautiful album from Smoke City – one of their most Brazilian-tinged efforts yet, and a sunny blend of London soul with the warmth of the Rio scene. The group, if anything, have only gotten gentler over the years – and this album's a sweet mix of light vocals, acoustic guitar, ... CD
