On Kloud 9 (UK pressing)

CD (Item 483474) Expansion (UK), 2002 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


A great bit of smooth modern soul from Kloud 9 – an American duo with a sound that's reminiscent of the mellow Isley Brothers work of the late 70s and early 80s! These guys are totally great – warm, soulful, and in a mode that male vocalists hardly seem to match these days – voices drifting back and forth with effortless ease, yet also hitting a deeper approach that keeps things going very strong – mixed with keyboards for a sweetly soulful groove all the way through. The album features guest production by Bluey of Incognito and Ray Hayden of Opaz, a guest appearance by Incognito, duet vocals with Karen Bernod – but the real strength lies in the work of Kloud 9, a great pair of singers we hope to hear more from! Titles include "Never Knew", "If You Ever", "Let's Not Lose", "Priority", "Soul Mate", "Promise", "With Me", "Make You Mine", "Mercy Of Your Love", "A Moment", and "On Kloud 9".

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. 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.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
