CD

An overlooked mid 90s set from The Brand New Heavies – not as hitbound as some of their earlier work, but still plenty darn great – recorded with a strong emphasis on the vocals, and a no-nonsense soul sound that's always refreshing! There's one or two instrumentals on the album, but most of the tracks are vocal numbers in an R&B mode – yet still with plenty of the best old school touches we expect from The Heavies, and an overall sound that's quite different than most of their contemporaries. Titles include "I Like It", "Shelter", "Feels Like Right", "Day By Day", "Once Is Twice Enough", "You Can Do It", "Stay Gone", "After Forever", "Last To Know", and "Highest High".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes a second disc – MTV Base Presents The Brand New Heavies, recorded live on May 15th, 1997 at the London Forum.)

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.

D'Angelo

Brown Sugar
Capitol, 1995. Used
A record that was an instant classic from the moment it was first released – and a set that's still pretty darn pleasing all these many years later! At a time when mainstream soul was often too smooth or too poppy, D'Angelo came along and not only found a way to return the music to the years ... CD

7 Bridges, 1997. Used
A wonderful bit of jazzy soul – kind of in the mode of Monday Michiru, but with a bit of a bay area twist. Female vocalist Rad sings and plays keyboards on the record – giving the tracks a nice mellow soul feel with some work on Fender Rhodes, mini moog, and other keyboards – and ... CD

A stunning debut from Havana – a really compelling set, and one with a sound to bridge a number of different scenes at once! At one level, Havana's got a smoothness that could easily put her in the forefront of mainstream soul – but at another, she also has a keen ear for a more ... CD
