Out of print for a decade plus, Get On Down revisits this timeless recording in a red vinyl pressing for Record Store Day 2023.
The Way I See It puts Raphael Saadiq's love of 1960s soul on full display. Recorded on vintage equipment, it features Motown session musicians, guest appearances from neo-soul singer Joss
Stone, R&B vocalist CJ Hilton, New Orleans collective The Rebirth Brass Band, a remixed bonus
track from Jay-Z, and even a guest appearance from Stevie Wonder.
The Way I See It racked up Grammy nominations for Best R&B Album, Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance, and Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. To this day it is considered one of the essential records of the classic soul revival, and one of Saadiq's finest career achievements.
