Venus & Mars

CD (Item 485936) Yin Yang Music, 1999 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Sweetly souful work from Seek – the group's first album, and one of the first really strong records to come out of the recent Atlanta scene! The sound of the record is a nice mix of classic soul grooves with more modern production, and the vocals are in a strong tradition that includes Minnie Riperton, Sade, and Soul To Soul. In a way, this one hit us sort of in the same place we got hit when we heard the first albums by Soul To Soul or the Brand New Heavies, and it stands apart from a lot of the other new stuff we've heard because of its strong songwriting, catchy hooks, and deep soulful grooves. Nice tracks include "Venus & Mars", "Before You", "Someday", and "Labor of Love".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Classic-styled soul from Musiq Soulchild – his debut set for Def Soul, and the start of a great run of mellow grooves! As you might guess from the compressed wording of the title, the tunes here have a great set of flow – a laidback, kicked-back sort of sound that's not nearly as full-o ... CD

One of the most soulful albums by this tasty Japanese combo! Most of the tracks on the record have a strong uptempo groove, with strident soulful female vocals – very much in the manner of those you'd hear on a Monday Michiru record. The album's only got 6 tracks – but they're all ... CD
