CD

Incredible work from Carmen Lundy – an album that's got us falling in love with her music all over again – but from a completely different perspective! As you might guess from the "demo" in the title, the album's got Lundy working in a very intimate setting – handling all keyboards, rhythms, and other instrumentation on the record herself – in a sweetly soulful groove that's quite different than some of her jazz-based albums! Don't let the word "demo" put you off, either – as these recordings are all perfectly polished, and just as professionally done as other Lundy recordings – and although we always knew Carmen had some instrumental talent, we're really stunned here at how her work on keyboards, piano, guitar, bass, harp, and percussion really helps open up the flavor of her songs. All tracks are new here – all really lovely work that makes the album as essential as any other classics from Lundy. Titles include "Move On", "Show Me A Sign", "The Out Crowd", "Fire In The Rhythm", "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings", "Without Your Love", "When Lights Are Low", "Free As A Child", and "Requiem For Kathyrn".  © 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.

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.
