Dazz BandInvitation To Love ... LP
Motown, 1980. Very Good .... $1.99
A killer start to the 80s for the Dazz Band – with great tunes in a funky mode as well as more measured group soul numbers – and it all adds up one of their best albums ever! Tunes like the opener "Shake It", plus "Shake It Up" and "Magnetized" bring the funkier vibes – with a vamping guitar, thumping bass groove, punchy horns, and top notch vocals from the group – while tunes like the title track and "Beyond The Horizon" have a more soaring arrangement of horns and some strings,still with an impeccable core groove. It's not as smoothed out in the production booth as some of their later grooves of the 80s – a total gem! Other titles include " Skate Lovers", "Carry On", "Do It Again", "Do It Again", "Sooner Or Later" and "Beyond The Horizon". LP, Vinyl record album

New Dazz BandKeep It Live (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1982. Used .... $22.99
Dazz Band keep it plenty live on this early 80s gem – a killer set from the group's hit run for Motown! The set's got a bouncy groove that's very much in the best Motown funk style at the time – lots of bass at the bottom, and plenty tight on production – but never as smooth or commercial as work from a few years later. The group balance things out well with a few mellower cuts – numbers that still have some sort of a groove, but one that's a bit more laidback, and which shows they're not just a funk-driven outfit. Titles include the massive hit "Let It Whip" – plus "Gamble With My Love", "Just Can't Wait 'Till The Night", "Shake What You Got", "Keep It Live", and "Let Me Love You Until". CD

Dazz BandWild & Free (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Geffen/PTG (Netherlands), 1986. New Copy .... $13.99
The Dazz Band may be wild and free in the title, but the album's tighter than ever – a lean, focused approach to the Dazz Band sound – done here with loads of 80s production and instrumentation in the mix! The rhythms are heavy with drum machine lines – often mixed with keyboard bits and swirled together with a sound that's even more crossover than some of the group's earlier work. Vocals often take a back seat to the grooves – but on the ballads they shine through nicely, and remind us of the group's roots. Titles include "The Beat That's Right", "Wild & Free", "Love MIA", "Sunglasses", "Something You Said", and "Time Will Heal A Broken Heart". CD features bonus tracks – "Wild & Free (ext dance rmx)", "Last Chance For Love", "Love MIA (house mix)", and "A Place In My Heart". CD

New Kinsman DazzKinsman Dazz/Dazz ... CD
20th Century/Expansion, 1978/1979. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A pair of killers – back to back on a single CD! First up is the killer debut from the Dazz Band – issued way back when they were named Kinsman Dazz, and when "dazz" was a reference to the fact that the group could play both dance music and jazz! That jazzy element is definitely in place here – as the set's got lots of hip instrumental touches over the core funky grooves – produced with some great help from Philip Bailey and Ralph Johnson, who bring in a bit of Earth Wind & Fire vibe – and set to some larger arrangements from Patrice Rushen, who ups the jazzy quotient too! But the core sound of the group is what really drives the album – a well-crafted batch of Ohio funky numbers that step along with the best of their generation – on titles that include "Makin Music", "Forget About Lovin You", "Get Down With the Feelin", "Stand In Your Way", "And I Mean", and "Dazzberry Jam". On the Dazz album, Kinsman Dazz are even funkier here than before – showing off their Ohio roots, and pointing the way towards the classic Dazz Band sound they'd forge in the 80s! Rhythms are very tight throughout – but still often touched with the jazzy elements that made the group so great in their early years – echoing a bit of an Earth Wind & Fire sound, as Philip Bailey's on board to help a bit with arrangements and background vocals. The whole thing's great – a super-tight record without any filler at all – and titles include "I Searched Around", "Love Design", "Keep On Rockin", "Can't Get Enough", "Dancin Free", and the wonderful "Catchin Up On Love", a spacey harmony track with a really anthemic sound!

BrickGood High ... LP
Bang, 1976. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern groove – coming up with a sound that was nice and lean – perfect for these key transitional years of funk – with influences that were felt for years, in places as far away as the west coast! Case in point is the album's classic "Dazz" – one of those cuts that never gets old – nestled nicely in a lineup that also includes "Music Matic", "Here We Come", "Good High", "Brick City", and "Sister Twister".

The Sugarhill house band reworks some of the more popular R&B hits of the day (like the Dazz Band's "Let It Whip") for Kool Moe Dee, Special K & LA Sunshine to get busy over.

New BrickWaiting On You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1980. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
An overlooked killer from Brick – the group's fourth album, but every bit as tight and funkier as earlier sets! Brick's Atlanta-bred groove is very much in place here – that lean, mean approach to funk that made them a standout right from the get-go – almost setting the scene for the stripped-down modes that so many other groups would follow well into the 80s! That tighter sound lets the group really hit a strongly soulful focus here – serving up some of their best vocals to date, and reminding us that some of the best mainstream funk groups always had a strong ability to harmonize over their grooves. Titles include "Push Push", "Get Started", "All The Way", "Waiting On You", "Free", "Sweet Lips", and "Let Me Make You Happy". CD also features 2 bonus cuts – "Dazz" and "Dusic", served up in longer 12" versions! CD

New VariousMotown Disco – 16 Essential Disco Cuts ... CD
Motown (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Not just disco, but a whole host of other Motown grooves as well – a great little package that looks at the way the label was funking things up in the late 70s – picking up some hints from the sounds of the club, but also going their own direction as well! There's a really rich feeling to the music here – a nicely overstuffed collection that has Motown both echoing the sounds of New York and Philly, then also setting out a new approach to funky soul for the 80s generation as well. The CD's got a whopping 16 tracks in all – and titles include "Let's Get Serious" by Jermaine Jackson, "I Could Never Make A Better Man Than You" by Magic Disco Machine, "I Am Love (parts 1 & 2)" by Jackson 5, "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Thelma Houston, "You're My Driving Wheel (promo version)" by The Supremes, "Upside Down" by Diana Ross, "Goin Up In Smoke" and "Keep On Truckin" by Eddie Kendricks, "Let It Whip" by Dazz Band, "Give It To Me Baby" by Rick James, "Behind The Groove" by Teena Marie, "In & Out" by Willie Hutch, and "Get It Up For Love" by Tata Vega.

Bembeya Jazz NationalSyliphone Years ... CD
Sterns (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... $19.99 23.99
An awe-inspiring mother lode of classic Guinean grooves from one of Africa's greatest bands! Senegal's Orchestra Baobab have become the media favorite of Africa's golden era, but it only takes one spin of this fabulous anthology to realize that Bembeya Jazz National were as good as any band the continent ever produced. As the title says, this material is culled from the recordings the band made for the great state-owned Syliphone label, and it reflects an era of dazzling creative potency – sensual Afro-Cuban tropes are blended into a powerful mix of Mande melodies, sashaying grooves, and jaw-dropping solos. Most of this collection features lead vocals by the sweet and soulful Aboubacar Demba Camara, who died in a tragic car accident in 1973, while the prodigiously talented Sekou "Diamond Fingers" Diabate unspools one astonishing lead after another. A still-powerful version of the group reunited in 2001, but nothing can match these recordings. Truly essential stuff! Tracks include "Dembaty Galant", "Waraba", "Super Tentemba", "Fatoumata", and "Sina Mousso". Newly repackaged and with and extra track!! CD

Soul Brother (UK), Early 80s. Used .... $9.99
The genius of Leroy Burgess knows no bounds – as you'll hear on this fantastic set of rare club tracks! Leroy first got his start in the group Black Ivory, but by the end of the 70s he'd left the ensemble to become a producer – working on their own work, as well as records by a host of excellent underground club acts on the east coast. Burgess had a wonderful approach to the music – taking enough of a groove from disco to keep things moving, but using his roots in soul to keep things real. Warm and soulful groovers throughout – with titles that include "Let's Do It" and "Sweet Thing" by Convertion, "Over Like A Fat Rat" by Fonda Rae, "Mainline" and "Hustlin" by Black Ivory, "You Dazzle Me" by Dazzle, "Summertime" by High Frequency, "Fly Girl" by Intrique, "Weekend" by Class Action, "You Can Do It" by Dino Terrell, and "100%" by Caprice.

Island/Culture Factory (France), 1975. New Copy .... $14.99 18.99
Dazzling work from John Cale – exactly the kind of record that shows why his solo years were so great! The record's got this unusual vibe – on one hand, it's put together like a more conventional rock set of the time – but on the other, it's got strange dark currents that run through the whole thing in very weird ways – a bit like some of the Roxy Music edges from the early years. No surprise, both Brian Eno and Phil Manzanera contribute strongly to the set – but the energy of the record definitely comes from Cale's great songwriting and offbeat vocals – and his great ear for a weird-sounding tune. Titles include "Mr Wilson", "Rollaroll", "Ski Patrol", "Guts", "The Jeweller", and Cale's famous version of "Heartbreak Hotel". CD

New Little Anthony & The ImperialsOn A New Street/Hold On (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Avco/Soulmusic.com, 1973/1975. New Copy 2 CDs .... $18.99
Harmony heaven – a pair of Little Anthony & The Imperials albums together in a single set, with some sweet bonus tracks too! On A New Street is wonderful work from Little Anthony – and a great update to his smooth 60s harmony sound with The Imperials! Anthony wisely employs the use of two of 70s top harmony arrangers on the album – using Thom Bell on one side, and Teddy Randazzo on the other – both of whom really help take the group to a whole new level! The Thom Bell material fits perfectly with his work with The Stylistics from the same time, and the cuts have a wonderfully mellow east coast harmony style that's quite different than Anthony's earlier work. Teddy Randazzo does a pretty nice job, too – but with a fuller sound too, almost in a Manhattans mode that makes for a nice change from the previous fragility of Anthony's vocals. Titles include "I Don't Have Time To Worry", "That's What Love is All About", "I'm Falling In Love with You", "Heartache Never Entered My Mind", and "The Loneliest House on the Block". Also features an alternate take on "La La La At The End". Hold On has Little Anthony & The Imperials really hitting some great Philly modes – working with help from Tony Bell and Phil Hurtt, and getting lots of sweet backing from the Sigma Studio team – all in a mode that rivals some of the bigger soul group work of the 70s! The vibe's got a bit of Spinners in the mix, but still also holds on to the more fragile style that made The Imperials so great – especially on the mellower cuts, which have Anthony's voice cracking in that completely wonderful, very human way. But like Eddie Holman on Salsoul, he can also really shine on the clubbier cuts too – and the blend makes for a mighty compelling album from the group! Titles include "Hold On", "You Are The World To Me", "Promise Me", "I've Got To Let You Go", and "Back Where You Belong". CD also features some bonus cuts – "Hold On (stereo single mix)", "I've Got To Let You Go (stereo single)", "I've Got To Let You Go (stereo)", and "I've Got To Let You Go (mono short version)". CD

ECM (Germany), 1979. New Copy .... $16.99 18.99
A beautifully avant session from ECM – and a great late 70s showcase for the reed talents of the great Sam Rivers! The album's got a mixture of focus and freedom that makes it one of Sam's best from this period – a group outing that features Rivers on tenor, soprano, and flute – in a quartet that features exceptional work on trombone from George Lewis, plus Dave Holland on bass and Thurman Barker on drums. And while the music has some of the open, improvised feel of Rivers' other 70s material – it's also got some of the sharper structure that we love in his earliest 60s work too – kind of a redefinition of "new thing" modes via fresh ideas explored in the loft jazz years. The album's a real standout in ECM from the time – and titles include "Circles", "Zip", "Solace", 'Dazzle", "Images", and "Lines". CD

Teddy did some of his best work with The Royalettes – and forged a style that was sophisticated and classy, yet in different ways than some of the blander attempts by labels like Motown. The record's got a huge amount of tracks for a major label release from the time – with 15 cuts in all, and titles that include "Baby Are You Putting Me On", "It's Better Not To Know", "Can't Stop Running Away", "Rest Of My Life", "Forever More", "Think Before You Act", and "I Don't Want To Be The One".

O'BryanDoin' Alright/You And I ... CD
Capitol/Expansion (UK), 1981/1983. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
Smooth and sophisticated 80s soul from O'Bryan – his first two Capitol albums together on one CD – thanks to the classic soul devotees at Expansion UK! Doin' Alight and the follow-up You And I are a great mix of smoothed out modern soul, bits of funk and classic soul touches. Most of it is co-produced with Don Cornelius, of Soul Train fame, who helped O'Bryan get his start. A good bit of the debut Doin' Alright has a kicked back, nice and mellow approach – grooving in a modern Capitol Rare mode, with some pop funk bass and elegant strings for good measure. Tracks include "It's Over", "Love Has Found A Way", "Doin Alright", "Can't Live Without Your Love", and "Still Water (Love)". The follow-up brings in a bit more electro and pop funk into the mix – especially on the first half of the record – before settling in with some nice laidback soul and ballads on the second half. The funky "I'm Freaky" kicks it off, and other tracks include "Dazzlin' Lady", "I'm In Love Again", "Shake", "Soft Touch" and the sweet soul title cut. CD

One of the most obscure Stylistics albums of the 70s – a smooth late 70s modern soul effort, headed up by group soul maestro Teddy Randazzo! Teddy wrote, arranged, and produced the whole set – and the record nicely links together older group harmony styles, especially 60s uptown soul mode, with the more modern approaches that were appearing in the wake of the early 70s super-hit status of The Stylistics and other groups on the scene. The result is an approach that's more mature than the group's earlier work – still sweetly soulful, but also more confident and mature. Titles include "First Impressions", "You're The Best Thing In My Life", "Looking At Love Again", "I Can't Stop Lovin", and "California Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

"In The Disco" follows up with similar energy – and "Play It" is great too – both tracks with vocals, but plenty of keyboards and a really great sound! 12-inch, Vinyl record
