Maxwell Unplugged EP

CD (Item 490387) Columbia, 1996 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

CD

❔

There's no need to call this one Unplugged – since the sound is warm, mellow, and with lots of electric touches – almost a stripped-down approach to the work that Maxwell crafted on his excellent albums Urban Hang Suite and Embrya. In fact, there's a sound here that's even more classic soul – sweet keyboards bubbling over spare percussion – Maxwell singing sweet leads with a few female singers behind him, the whole thing sounding even better as you hear the response of a very appreciative crowd! Titles include "Ascension (Don' Ever Wonder)" and "Mello: Sunthin (The Hush)". 7 tracks total.  © 1996-2019, 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. 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.

A set that arguably has even more majesty than the debut album from Michael Kiwanuka – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of that now-classic record! Production here is by Dangermouse, Inflo, and Paul Butler – and there's an airiness to some songs that really has Kiwanuka's ... CD
