Blazing Arrow

CD (Item 571777) MCA, 2002 — Condition: Used
$2.99 ...

CD

(€2.65 || £2.30 || ¥300) (approx.)

The first major label release by the Gift of Gab and Chief Excel finds the duo expanding outward and experimenting with their signature sound, bringing in a host of guests including Quannum mainmasts Lyrics Born, Lateef, and Joyo, as well as Dilated People's Raka and Babu, J5's Cut Chemist and Chali 2na, Saul Williams, Gil Scott-Heron, Ben Harper, and more, plus guest production by ?uestlove and Hi-Tek. There are some definite gems on here, with plenty of soulful female vocals, but don't expect a Nia part 2. This is a lot different, with a little more songcraft sensibility and at the same time bumps like Blackalicious project should. Cuts include the eerie "Blazing Arrow", "4000 Miles" with Chali 2na and Lateef, the instant classic single "Make You Feel That Way", the fist pumpin "Paragraph President", and many more. 17 in all.  © 1996-2016, 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.
