IMPRESSIONS: Number three in our series of "Borders Albums"; that is, those albums which I got into heavily when I first started working at Borders in the Multimedia Section. I can't hear this album without flashing back to wheeling my V-cart out to the music browsers and shelving cds in the classical music section (or in Maz's Jazz section when she was off) and listening to this album piped through the overhead speakers. This also got me smoothly through my RPL's. Ah, better days.
MY FAVOURITE TRACKS: Exclusively, Gettin' In the Way, A Long Walk, He Loves Me (Lyzel in B-Flat), It's Love, The Way, Love Rain, Slowly Surely, One Is the Magic #
GUEST ARTISTS: Mos Def (vocals on "Love Rain (Remix)")
