❔

Maybe not the first album to ever pay tribute to the music of the great Bill Withers – but certainly one of the best we've ever heard, thanks to the mighty vocals of Jose James! Over a relatively short career, James has proven to be a singer who can handle himself in just about any setting – but he really seems to be especially perfect, here – working with classic songs by Withers, but making them completely his own, through a raspy vocal approach that really seems to transform the tunes in Jose's hands! And despite a cover image that has James standing with an acoustic guitar, that instrument here is played by Brad Allen Williams – in a great small combo setting that also features excellent Fender Rhodes, organ, and piano from Kris Bowers. Lalah Hathaway guests on a great remake of "Lovely Day" – and other tunes include "Who Is He", "Hello Like Before", "Better Off Dead", "The Same Love That Made Me Laugh", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Grandma's Hands", "Lean On Me", "Kissing My Love", "Just The Two Of Us", "Hope She'll Be Happier", and "Use Me".  © 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.

A stunning debut from Jarrod Lawson – a singer we fell in love with right away – and who we'd rank right up there with some our favorite mellow soul artists of the 70s! Yes, the cover's got a look that's more indie rock – but Jarrod's got this righteous vibe and sense of flow ... CD
