Will DowningWill Downing ... CD
Universal, 1988. Used ... $5.99
The debut of greatness from Will Downing – an album that really sparkled in the late 80s musical galaxy, and which strongly updated an older style of richer soul from the 70s! Will's working here with equal parts influence from jazz and soul – inflected by work from talents that include Brian Jackson, Arthur Baker, Doug Wimbush, and Keith LeBlanc – held together mightily by the legendary Downing vocals! In world where so much mainstream soul seemed adrift, Will brought back the power of older male vocalists with a classic presence – one that didn't succumb to the easy cliches of the mid 80s mainstream, and which really helped raise the bar for generations to come. Titles include a great remake of Denice Williams' "Free", a surprising take on John Coltrane's "Love Supreme", and the tracks "Do You Remember Love", "Do You", "In My Dreams", "So You Wanna Be My Lover", "Security", and "Dancing In The Moonlight". CD

New FreeezPop Goes My Love/Scratch Goes My Dub/No Need For Greed ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1983. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Classic electro from the team of John Rocca and Arthur Baker. "Pop Goes My Love" was one of the catchier groovers from the time – and on the flip, Whiz Kid does some nice scratching on the dub mix! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Streetwise sleeve.)

New Al GreenKeep On Pushing Love/Your Heart's In Good Hands ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1996. New Copy ... $7.99
Later work from Al Green – produced by Arthur Baker, who sets Al up in some surprisingly nice contemporary grooves! "Keep On Pushing" has a nice stepping groove from the start – but Al's vocals still have all that classic style overall – that sublime, spiritual flow that just gets better and better as the tune rolls on! "Your Heart" is great too – a joyous midtempo groover that stands strongly with Greens' classics from the 70s! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New King CurtisMusic For Dancing – The Twist ... CD
RCA/Shout (UK), 1961. New Copy ... $8.99
Raw instrumental dance soul from sax great King Curtis – recorded for RCA in 1961 – really great, energetic covers of big band numbers and more in a hard grooving R&B mode! Don Covay and others sing on the "Twist" tunes – "Peppermint Twist", "The Arthur Murray Twist" and a couple more – but the instrumentals are pretty incredible, too. Mickey Baker and Billy Butler are on guitar, and the whole group of musicans really cook! Other tracks include "Jersey Bounce", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Stompin' At The Savoy", "The Fly" and more. CD

Diana RossSwept Away ... LP
RCA, 1984. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
A surprising hit for Diana Ross – a record that really helped the singer shine brightly in the 80s, but with a vibe that's quite different than her years at Motown! The album's got plenty of star power on board – production work from Arthur Baker, Richard Perry, Daryl Hall, Lionel Richie, and Bernard Edwards – and a musical lineup that features half those artistes, plus work from Jeff Beck, Nile Rodgers, and the Brecker Brothers too! Diana's vocals aren't as over the top as during the disco years – and find a nice place to percolate within the warmer 80s grooves – mostly rhythms that have a nice sort of crossover potential, but not in a way that's as clunky or commercial as some of her contemporaries. Title sinclude "Missing You", "It's Your Move", "Swept Away", "Telephone", "All Of You", "Touch By Touch", "Nobody Makes Me Crazy", and "Rescue Me". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Swept Away (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD 18.99

TJMTJM (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Casablanca/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99
A later bit of Philly disco – recorded at Sigma Sound studios with really soaring production from Tom Moulton – and some surprising help on a number of tracks from a young Arthur Baker! The style here has that Instant Funk sort of groove – a bit more bass at the bottom than earlier Philly disco, and a real penchant for instrumental breakdowns in the Salsoul mode – stepping out nicely on a set of longer tracks that really bubble over with energy! Titles include "Put Yourself In My Place", "Small Circle Of Friends", "I Don't Need No Music", and "Am I Dreaming". This Big Break UK remastered edition has 3 bonus tracks: "Storm Warning", "Put Yourself In My Place (Single Version)" and "Am I Dreaming (Single Version)". CD

New FreeezIOU ... LP
Streetwise, 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nice one! The album's a classic batch of early 80s electro – featuring 8 NYC breakin' cuts produced by Arthur Baker, and featuring John Rocca on lead vocals. A bit poppy, sure – and we'll be the first to admit that we kind of wrinkled our nose at this one back in the day. But after time, it sure sounds nice – and reminds us that we need to drag our linoleum out of the basement! Includes their classic "Pop Goes My Love", plus "I.O.U.", "Freezin", "We've Got The Juice", and "Can't Keep My Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Naked EyesFuel For Fire (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet electro pop from Naked Eyes – a record issued late in their early 80s run, but one that actually brings together lots of bits from earlier years! There's some alternate versions and remixes on the set – and the whole thing is actually more beat and bassline-heavy than most of their other full length sets – showing a good ability to cross over to the clubs when they want to! Titles include "What In The Name Of Love", "Eyes Of A Child", "Sacrifice", "No Flowers Please", "Answering Service", "Me I See In You", "Flying Solo", and "Flag Of Convenience". CD features 7 bonus tracks – including "Two Heads Together", "Sacrifice (Arthur Baker 12" mix)", "What In The Name Of Love (ext)", and demo versions of "Sacrifice", "Babes In Armour", and "Fuel For The Fire".
