Beneath The Surface

CD (Item 520987) Verve/Talkin' Loud, 1997 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


A tightly woven batch of jazzy soul tracks – the usual from Bluey and Incognito, classier than most soul you'll find on the market today, and with a depth that gives the work a distinctly classic sound! Titles include "Dark Side of The Cog", "Out Of The Storm", "Living Against The River", "She Wears Black", "Solar Fire", "Labor Of Love", "Hold On To Me", and "Without You".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Out of print, BMG music club pressing.)

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 only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

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 describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

No beach music grooves here – just sublimely soulful work from Incognito – played with the sort of perfection we've come to expect in their albums! The title's a tribute to the sunny grooves heard by Bluey in his youth in Mauritius, and the album was recorded with a similarly warm feel ... CD

Lizz Wright

Verve, 2008. Used
One of the most deeply soulful sets we've ever heard from singer Lizz Wright – a record that has an even more acoustic feel than before, which really opens up the sound nicely! Given the depth of Wright's vocals, this shift is a really great move – one that lets her really stand out ... CD

Soul People, 2006. Used
A really collaborative little set from Chicago's Soul People – and one that's even better than you might guess from the "hiphopera" in the title! The set's more soul than anything else – rolled out in a casual, comfortable way that's heavy on the beats and keyboards, but ... CD

Van Hunt
Capitol, 2004. Used
The smashing debut of Van Hunt – a smoky-voiced singer with a really great sound! The album's one of those "instant classics" that grabs us right away – put together with a sweet and seductive feel that's got roots that stretch back past D'Angelo into the 70s work of Al Green ... CD

Zo Presents Re:Definition
Chapter 3hree Verse 5ive Music, 2005. Used
Detroit keyboardist Zo plays with a host of great recent cuts – re:defining them with his own mellow groove by adding in a lot of sweet keyboards and spacey beats! The style's vaguely like a mix, but most tracks stand alone by themselves – keeping the original vocals and structure ... CD

Conyadosssongs, 2008. Used
Conya Doss delivers some of the best and brightest underground soul – and this set is just as beautiful as her earlier work – and perhaps her best to date! Conya has been bubbling just under the mainstream radar for far too long now, with roots in the Cleveland scene but with a soaring ... CD

Natalie Gardiner

Ramjac (Sweden), 2008. Used
Natalie hails from Sweden – despite the California title of the set – but her music has a sweet, soulful sparkle that would be right at home in the US! The record's got a bit of the feel of some of the more cosmic soul coming out of the west coast underground – never too tripped-o ... CD
