This Is Soul 2006

CD (Item 613144) Soul Brother (UK), 2006 — Condition: Used
$5.99 ...

CD

The title certainly gets it right, as the compilation is a great overview of all things soulful in 2006 – with a real focus on up-and-coming artists from the American underground, including a few here who are yet to release their own albums! The track list is totally great – a really rich blend of different voices and styles – work by both male and female artists who represent all that is bright and hopeful in American soul – a real contrast to the kind of junk that you'll find in more mainstream channels! And even if you buy a lot of Neo Soul work, there's plenty here that you probably haven't tracked down yet – all provided with great notes that are an introduction to the artists. 16 tracks in all – including "Much Better" by Chavous, "Do What You Do" by Inobe, "Ummm Hmmm" by LaSonya Gunter, "Sunny Day" by Amar Kalil, "Where It's At" by Darien, "No Ordinary Love" by PJ Morton, "Something So" by Gabie McGhee, "I Just Wanna Be With You" by Iman Williams, "Get Through" by Natural Selection, "No More Love" by Brown's Bag, and "All The Ways" by Jazzhole.  © 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.

Classic-styled soul from Musiq Soulchild – his debut set for Def Soul, and the start of a great run of mellow grooves! As you might guess from the compressed wording of the title, the tunes here have a great set of flow – a laidback, kicked-back sort of sound that's not nearly as full-o ... CD

One of the most soulful albums by this tasty Japanese combo! Most of the tracks on the record have a strong uptempo groove, with strident soulful female vocals – very much in the manner of those you'd hear on a Monday Michiru record. The album's only got 6 tracks – but they're all ... CD
