Out Of Stock

CD

"Destined To Be A Modern Soul Classic" says the sticker on the front – and for once, they finally got it right! The album's the first-ever full length from Donnie – a brilliant young soul singer who's been bubbling out of the Atlanta scene over the past few years, and who has only issued a small number of singles so far. Donnie's voice and style are incredible – a sweetly-crafted approach to soul that's steeped in traditions that stretch back to 70s work by Donny Hathaway, Curtis Mayfield, and Marvin Gaye – and which resonate strongly with some of the better underground NuSoul singers of today. The full album shows a lot more depth to Donnie's work than we've even heard on the singles – with a really great mix of moods and modes, all handled to perfection with Donnie's incredible vocals! Titles include "People Person", "Wildlife", "Rocketship", "Masterplan", "The Colored Section", "Our New National Anthem", "Do You Know", and "Cloud 9".  © 1996-2019, 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.
