CD

Special limited 2CD version! This sparkling single is one of her best yet – with an extended groove on both sides, and a style of production and songwriting that pushers her deeper and deeper into new territory. "Mysteries Of Life" is an amazing track – one that starts with a spare jazzy passage, then moves into a house-heavy groove, but one touches with loads of acoustic instrumentation, which always works best for Monday's soulful voice. The lyrics are great, and the set's like finding some lost jazzy groover from the glory days of Fantasy Records. "Chasing After The Sun" begins with some Afro Funk rhythms, then rolls into a smooth jazzy finish that's got these killer piano riffs touched with little bits of acoustic guitar. Sounds like a classic 70s soul tune, and it's one of Monday's best. "Inspiration" finishes out the set nicely, with a strident groove, righteous lyrics, and nice acoustic guitar in the mix. Pricey – but worth it, as all tracks are great! Plus, the second CD features a remake of the Bee Gees' "How Deep is Your Love" – done with these cool strings, and a great midtempo groove that totally remakes the song into a Monday-driven jazzy groover!  © 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.

Dorado (UK), 1994. Used
More in the acid jazz vein than some of her great laster NuSoul efforts, but still a wonderful single, with a slick jazzy feel that reminds us nicely of the mid 90s. The Outside mix gives it a jazzier spin, that we really dig, while "Secret Place" moves at a tempo that's a shade too slow ... CD
