N'Dea Davenport

CD

✈

The former lead singer from the Brand New Heavies breaks out on her own for this debut LP. The tracks have a straighter, less jazzy approach than you might hope for, and the album was largely self produced, though Dallas Austin contributed a few tracks. Though there's some material that verges on being commercial, (maybe she was trying to get over on the radio) there's a lot of nice touches like the rich trumpet lines on the opening track "Whatever You Want", the dark neo-classic soul of "When The Night Falls" with it's light wah guitar and the crisp but spacious groove of "In Wonder". Also includes the jazzy number "Bulsh*ttin".  © 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.
