Slick funk with an LA feel – kind of like Average White Band in the mid 70s, with a soulful edge that almost builds off of the Hall & Oates ballads of early years. If that sounds like a bad thing, it's not – because the record has a great smooth Free Soul quality, and is filled with plenty of well-done, hook-heavy songs. Titles include "Sweet Summer Music", "Good News", "Promise Me The Moon", "Turning In Space", "Change", and "Let's Talk Turkey". LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet 80s groove from Brass Construction – still with Randy Muller at the helm, but with a sound that's a bit more bassy than before! Trademark Brass Construction horns still make an appearance on the set, but there's almost more focus on the keyboards – which, along with the bass, help give the group an even leaner, cleaner sound – all balanced perfectly with Muller's impeccable sense of rhythm! Randy produced and arranged the whole set himself – and titles include "Do That Thang", "Forever Love", "Funtimes", "Hot Dog", "ETC", and "Can You See The Light". LP, Vinyl record album
Love the groove here – a very unique take on harmony soul, and one that's steeped in jazzy roots, but carried off with a classy 80s groove! Credit really goes to group member Augie Johnson, who also produced the whole thing – getting this great mix of soul and funky fusion put together perfectly – all with these complicated elements that really push the vocal parts past any obvious territory – a wicked sound that really sets Side Effect apart from the rest. Miki Howard's leads are bold and proud, but the male harmonies are a key component of the record too – and the whole thing's got just the right blend of polish and soul to keep Side Effect a favorite of ours for many years. Titles include "Take Me As I Am", "My Way", "Attitudes", "You Can Do It", "Music Is My Way Of Life", "Forever My Love", and "I Want To". LP, Vinyl record album
