Leon Ware (1982) (Japanese pressing)

CD (Item 555562) Elektra (Japan), 1982 — Condition: Used
$18.99 ...

CD

Seminal modern soul from the great Leon Ware – an artist who had a great influence on the sound of mellow Motown in the 70s, but who's sounding even better here in an early 80s California groove! Leon's smooth, sophisticated, and very much his own man on the set – unabashedly upfront with his feeling and emotions, but never in the schmaltzy style of some of his chart-topping contemporaries. Many titles have a nice little bounce and a really compelling groove – and midtempo jazzy arrangements abound, touched by lots of Fender Rhodes from co-producer Marty Paich! Titles include the classic "Why I Came To California", plus "Can I Touch You There", "Where Are They Now", "Deeper Than Love", "Shelter", "Slippin Away", and "Lost In Love With You".  © 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.

Elektra/Finesse (UK), 1985. Used
There's a Roger Troutman groove all over this album from Human Body – no surprise, since Roger plays guitar, keyboards, and bass – and even produced the album himself! The style's kind of a left-of-center take on the Zapp groove of the time – a bit rougher and more street-consciou ... CD

A much better record than we want to admit, with Natalie moving towards jazzy numbers and standards, for a blockbuster Grammy winning effort. Her voice stands up well to the mainstream polish, and even the creepy "duet" with her father is enjoyable. 22 tracks in all, including "The ... CD
