Trouble With Being Myself

CD (Item 586579) Epic, 2003 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


Macy's follow up to The Id, which was a wonderful and underappreciated record, and it's nearly as nice! Trouble With Being Myself sort of combines the paths she took on the previous two albums for a really nice mix of material. "When I See You", "She Ain't Right For You", "My Fondest Childhood Memories" and other tracks kind of carry on the smoother, more mannered style of her breakthrough first album, and other tracks like the fine "It Ain't The Money" with Pharoahe Monch, "Screamin'" and others carry on with the grittier, deeper style of The Id. A strong album overall, one that should have kept Macy on the shortlist of relavent pop artists for a long time to come – but sadly fell through the cracks! Other tracks include "Things That Made Me Change", "Jesus For A Day", "She Don't Write Songs About You", and "Speechless". (BMG music club pressing.)  © 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.

There's nobody better we can think of to pay tribute to Donny Hathaway than Frank McComb – given that both Frank's wonderful vocals and keyboard work draw a lot from Donny's originals of the 70s, but have always taken his inspiration in really rich new directions on McComb's recent albums! ... CD

Ronny's groove is firmly in place here – and the album's one of his strongest in years! The record still has plenty of numbers that follow in Ronny's "hip hop meets jazz funk" mode – but there's also some sweet NuSoul production on the best cuts, really letting the guitar ... CD

After beginning life as a super fuzzed-out psychasouladelic band, Parliament emerged as one of the best pop-funk combos of the mid/late 70s – with a tight tight sound that mixed the smooth major label sound of Casablanca with the mad funk genius of George Clinton. This huge 3LP set brings ... CD
