Seamless mix of smoothed-out classics by D'Angelo.
I remember the first time I heard Brown Sugar and how I felt. That ws 95' and i still get goosebumps every time I play that record. Then came the wait for Voodoo which I didn't fall in love with as quickly but has definitely grown on me since then to the point where I almost hold both in the same regard. I hope James River sees the light of day eventually and D'angelo is back on track with all his personal drama behind him. Definitely one of the most talented artists of my generation. Two albums in 16 years is far from prolific but how do you recapture the magic which defines an era of music? It will be interesting to see if he can do it with James River.
There can never be enough D'angelo mixes... Going to see the man live in january 2012!
