D'Angelo's scorching 1995 debut, including the breakout hit, "Brown Sugar." Handling almost all of the production, instrumentation and songwriting himself (with help from Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest, Raphael Saadiq, and Bob Power), the album is a showcase for D'Angelo's immense talent.
Newly mastered from the original analog tapes - Russell Elevado, in his Analogypsy Studios and in collaboration with Stefan Heger at Fisheye Music, mastered Brown Sugar from the album’s original half-inch master reels stored in the EMI vault. Elevado has long been associated with D’Angelo, starting with this album and continuing through Voodoo and his current recordings, as a recording engineer and mixer. His work is admired for its attention to detail and devotion to the warmth of original analog sound. Elevado considers this new master the definitive audio representation of D’Angelo's landmark debut.
