Album II

$2.99 ...

CD

✈
The second album from Kem – in case you couldn't guess from the title – and even deeper than the first! As before, Kem keeps the whole thing true to himself – by writing and producing every track on the record, and working in a spare and soulful groove that draws a clear lineage back to the older soul artists who've inspired his music. There's a simplicity here that's really refreshing, and a male vocal mode that's warmly relaxed, yet never in a cliched "sexy" sort of way. No surprise that Kem's burning things up these days – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Find Your Way", "Into You", "Without You", "Set You Free", "I'm In Love", and "You Might Win".  © 1996-2022, 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.
