Change Is Gonna Come

CD (Item 513307) Warner, 2005 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


Powerhouse nusoul chanteuse Leela James recruits an all star slate of guests behind the boards for her Warner Bros debut – but it's the specter of soul greats such as Chaka Kahn, Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, Betty Davis, and Ike-era Tina Turner that really inform the sound! Leela has the grittiest female voice to arrive in the modern mainstream since Macy Gray, but unlike Macy, the grit is applied in the heavy delivery – she's a real shouter, and the grittier and moodier arrangements on the set often put in the realm of D'Angelo's Voodoo! Kanye West and Raphael Saadiq are among the guests. Tracks include "Music", "Good Time", "Ghetto", "Soul Food", "Rain", "When You Love Somebody", "Don't Speak", "It's Alright", "A Change Is Gonna Come", "Long Time Coming" and more!  © 1996-2017, 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.

Soul Junction (UK), 2014. Used
A great debut from Anthony Toombs – a Milwaukee soul singer who slaved away as a maintenance engineer during the day, while cutting this totally sweet album at night! The album's got a classic sort of male soul vibe all the way through – not 60s or 70s, but that best warm approach of ... CD
