1st Born Second

CD (Item 486697) Interscope, 2001 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

Debut full length from the singer we've heard on everybody else's cuts. The tracks bump along nicely, with a slightly harder vibe than most other Nusoul and certainly any radio-friendly R&B these days on a number of tracks, especially those produced by Dre, though the Soulquarians and Rafael Saadiq open up the vibe a little more. We like him best when he sings in his natural voice – his falsetto reminds us a little too much of D'Angelo. Includes 'For You", "Reminisce", "Sometimes", "Soul Sista", "When Will You Call" and "Second Child".  © 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.
