Where It All Begins

CD (Item 885274) Stax, 2011 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

A really strong album from Lalah Hathaway – profoundly addressing her legacy on this second album for Stax by covering a Donny Hathaway classic and paying tribute to him with the album art – all the while standing up proudly as a soul music veteran with a proud legacy that's all her own! If you thought Lalah was going to go old school style on Where It All Begins – rest assured that this is contemporary soul music – though crafted with a timeless sensibility. There's some nicely thumping numbers and sweeter, more soaring jams – with Lalah's smoky voice carrying it all the way. Lalah's move to Stax continues to be a major creative win! Includes "Strong Woman", "Where It All Began", "My Everything", "Small Of My Back", "Always Love You", "This Could Be Love", Wrong Way", "I'm Coming Back" feat Rochelle Ferrell, "Dreamland", and a fresh take on the Donny Hathaway classic "You Were Meant For Me". 12 tracks in all.  © 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.

New material from one of our favorite soul artists ever – a laidback set of mellow soul tunes that's pure Leon Ware all the way through! The style is almost a contemporary update of Ware's classic Musical Massage for Motown in the 70s – a slinky, sensuous set of tracks, delivered in a ... CD

Isaac Hayes

Greatest Hit Singles
Stax, 1970s. Used
An album that pretty much needs no introduction, as it's largely evident from the title. Just ion case you were wondering though, this is quite a batch of heavy soul and protoypical funk. A dozen essential 70s R&B gems, as released on singles, including "Walk On By", "Do Your ... CD

Black Moses
Enterprise/Stax, 1971. Used 2 CDs
Baroquely beautiful work from the Stax soul master – one of Isaac Hayes' heaviest albums of the 70s – and a record so massive, they needed 2LPs to contain the whole thing! The record's a culmination of the rich, full style of soulful arranging that Hayes had pioneered in his early solo ... CD

Stax, 1969/Early 70s. Used

Booker T & The MGs

Hip Hug-Her
Stax/Rhino, 1967. Used
Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky with this one – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years! The sound is still solid Memphis soul, with a raw instrumental vibe – but the grooves are even better than before, ... CD

Booker T & The MGs

Melting Pot
Stax, 1970. Used
One of the greatest albums ever from Booker T & The MGs – and very different than their early work! The record has Book & Co taking off with a stretched-out jazzy sound – carving expanded grooves that are filled with sweet organ solos, choppy guitar riffs, and some incredibly ... CD
Stax/Enterprise, 1972/1974. Used
2 early 70s sessions from Billy Eckstine – both recorded for Stax Records! First up is Senior Soul – a well-titled set not only given Billy's age, but also because of the surprisingly soulful undercurrent to the record – an extension into the genre even greater than Eckstine's ... CD
