The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill' is the critically and commercially acclaimed solo album by female Fugee Lauryn Hill. Originally released on August 25th , 1998, it has been widely praised for its seamless fusion of R&B, Hip Hop, Reggae, Gospel, and Neo Soul. The songs vary in style, but make for a cohesive album. In 1999, the album garnered no less than 10 (!) Grammy nominations at the 41st Grammy Awards. When Hill won 5 Grammies that night, this achievement made her the first female to receive that many in one night. The album includes collaborations with soul singer D'Angelo on ''Nothing Even Matters''; guitarist Carlos Santana on ''To Zion''; singer Mary J. Blige on ''I Used to Love Him'' and well as then little-known John Legend playing the piano on ''Everything is Everything''. Although Wyclef Jean offered his production skill for the album, Hill declined his input and took the chance of standing on her own 2 feet, without fellow Fugees Wyclef & Pras. Over 10 years after its original release Hill's debut solo album has proven to stand the test of time easily. For your listening pleasure, we present the 16-track album on 180 grams audiophile vinyl.

Soulful by Ruben StuddardWhen sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply. The first full-length effort from second-season American Idol winner Ruben Studdard is an unassuming album that will surely please his fans. Studdard works in the vein of mainstream R&B crooners like Luther Vandross; here, he even covers "Superstar," the Leon Russell/Bonnie Bramlett song associated with Vandross. Other familiar material includes a close, if foreshortened, copy of Al Greenâ€™s version of "How Do You Mend a Broken Heart," and the standard "For All We Know," so memorably sung by Billie Holiday on Lady in Satin. A fair bit of time is spent making sure we know that despite his success, Ruben hasnâ€™t changed. Indeed, he comes off as modest and charming; as for electrifying, heâ€™s less so. As a CD that couldâ€™ve easily pandered much more to the whims of casual TV viewers, though, Soulful is a perfectly acceptable debut. --Rickey Wright
