Zhane (Pronounced Jah Nay)

CD (Item 502083) Motown, 1994 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A stone classic from Zhane – a duo who maybe never had the longest life in soul music, but who made a massive impact with this gem from the 90s! The record was part of a new urban generation that was grounded both in hip hop production and deeper soul modes – territory maybe opened up a bit by British imports, especially Soul II Soul, but which also became very firmly a part of the American scene with a record like this! The sound is great – a wicked mix of beats, keyboards, and lean elements – maybe laying out a neo soul blueprint before anyone ever thought that way – and the traded vocals mix great sweetness with the funk – on titles that include the hits "Hey Mr DJ" and "Groove Thang" – plus "Vibe", "Sending My Love", "Off My Mind", "La La La", "Love Me Today", "Changes", and "For A Reason".  © 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.

Motown (UK), 1980s. Used
A sweet collection of the former lead singer of the Temps' solo 80s work, worth the price alone for the monster 80s jam "Don't Look Any Further!" That tune alone would serve as a template for countless other acts, influencing everyone from Soul II Soul to Eric B & Rakim with it's sly ... CD

Motown, 1960s. Used
Great work from Brenda Holloway – one of the first strong female singers to work for Motown – even if she never stayed with the label long enough to get the same sort of fame as Diana Ross, Mary Wells, or some of her other contemporaries! Holloway had already recorded a bit before ... CD

A 70s New York classic – the first and best album by Eddie Drennon! Eddie's got a unique sound that's part soul and part Latin – grooving here in a Latin Hustle mode that brings together gliding strings, floating chorus vocals, and a heavier funk-based set of rhythms that really kicks ... CD
