New Louis & Bebe BarronForbidden Planet – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Poppy Disc (UK), 1956. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Classic early electronic work from Louis & Bebe Barron – and the score to one of the best 50s space thrillers! This LP does a nice job of bringing the material out again – and although the sound quality isn't totally perfect, the spookiness of the music more than makes up for that. Titles include "Flurry of Dust", "The Landing", "Invisible Monster Approaches", and "Ancient Krell Music". 23 tracks in all – and lots of weird wonderful numbers! LP, Vinyl record album

Taana GardnerTaana Gardner (with bonus Kenton Nix CD) ... CD
West End/Octave (Japan), 1979. New Copy 2 CDs .... $24.99
The only full length album cut by singer Taana Gardner – quite a surprise, given how much impact she had on the clubs with her 12" singles at the start of the 80s! The album's got Gardner as a much richer singer than you might expect – able to lay back on a mellow track as well as step out on a groover – always with that higher range of vocals that really made her a standout at the time, but in ways that are never gimmicky or poppy at all. And in fact, there's a lot more depth to the record than you'd guess from the dated exercise cover image – a classic soul approach that's also quite a surprise for the mostly disco West End label too. Tracks are all nice and long – and backings are by Sunship, with Bernard Wright on Fender Rhodes. Titles include "Work That Body", "We Got To Work It Out", "When You Touch Me", "Paradise Express", and "Just Be A Friend". CD features five bonus tracks – "Heartbeat (12" club)", "Heartbeat (12" party)", "No Frills (12" Larry Levan club)", "No Frills (12" party)", and "Work That Body (orig 12" mix)". Also then features a whole bonus CD – Kenton Nix's West End Works – with titles that include "There's Never Been No One Like You (orig 12")" by Kenix with Bobby Youngblood, "Heartbeat Rap" by Sweet G, "Rap Your Heart Out" by Sweet G, "Serious Sirius Space Party (12" club)" by Ednah Holt, "Chillin Out (12" voc)" by Inez Brooks, "No Sense (orig 12") by D'Bora, "That's The Word (unreleased 12")" by Taana Gardner, and more mixes of these tracks too.

KrystolPassion From A Woman (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1986. New Copy .... $13.99
Poppy passion from Krystol – a sweet 80s trio with a definite way with a hook! The set's got a well-balanced mainstream sound – one that helps the vocals find a fullness right away, either on the leads or harmonies – both woven together over the top of the tight, beat-heavy grooves! At points, there's almost a retro vibe – as if an older girl trio mode's being revived for a new 80s scene – but with a definite contemporary spin. There's a decidedly commercial appeal to the sound – but Krystol were also never too overplayed back in the day, which makes the album a nice discovery – and a great surprise when you start digging through all the potential singles on the set. Tracks include "Love Attack", "Passion From A Woman", "He's So Jive", "Baby Make Up Your Mind", "Scared Single", and "Precious Precious". CD features bonus tracks too – "Passion From A Woman (ext)", "Passion From A Woman (acapella)", "Passion From A Woman (radio)", "Passion From A Woman (dub)", "Passion From A Woman (7" version)", and "Precious Precious (7" version)".

Mathematiques ModernesLes Visiteurs Du Soir (180 gram pressing on grey colored vinyl) ... LP
Medical, 1981. New Copy (reissue).... $19.99
Electronic sounds, but pretty darn catchy too – and not nearly as dark as you might guess from the title! The duo have a sound that's wonderfully perky at points – not poppy, but all-abristle with some cool analogue elements that crackle nicely next to the catchy vocals, and sweetly snapping beats – a quality that partly echoes some of the bigger names of the French scene of the time, but which also reflects more of the great evolution going on in the British electronic world as well. Titles include "Jungle Hurt", "TV Night", "Paris Tokyo", "Disco Rough", "Boy Be My Toy", and "Responds-Moi". LP, Vinyl record album

Giorgio MoroderSon Of My Father (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dunhill/Repertoire (Germany), 1972. New Copy .... $18.99 23.99
Excellent early work from Giorgio Moroder – recorded in the pre-disco years, with a trippy rock style that mixes electronics and some surprisingly soulful guitar work! The overall style is almost a prog take on the beat group sound with some poppy touches – a cool blend that was shared briefly by other European groups of the time, before they stretched out and got a bit more trippy. The album's got some nice moogy touches, tight drums by Keith Forsey, and even a bit of keyboards from Max Gregor Jr. Most tracks have vocals, but also kick off with a strong foot instrumentally – making for some great rock break moments that are worth the album alone, even though the full songs are pretty nice too! Titles include the epic "Tears", "Lord Release Me", "Watch Your Step", "Pauline", "Son Of My Father", "Automation", "London Traffic", "Spanish Disaster", and "Underdog". CD features lots of bonus tracks too – including "Today's A Tomorrow", "Everybody Join Hands", "I'm Free Now", "Non Ci Sto", "Take It Shake It Break My Heart", and "Underdog (mono)". CD

Rene & AngelaRise ... LP
Capitol, 1983. Very Good+ .... $3.99
Hard to go wrong with Rene & Angela at this point in their career – as they're super tight, always upbeat, and plenty darn soulful – no matter what the groove! The album's a perfect example of 80s groove at its best – a reworking of mainstream soul modes with a slight modern dancefloor touch – still never disco cliches, nor some of the too-poppy modes used by some of their contemporaries – and a blend that's always right on the money for the vocals of Angela Winbush to shine! Titles include the groover "Can't Give You Up", the mellow number "My First Love", and the cuts "Take Me To The Limit", "When It Comes To Love", "Bangin The Boogie", "Rise", and "Keep Runnin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Spine has a spot of tape residue.)

New Teal JoyTed Steele Presents Miss Teal Joy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little album from this overlooked singer – an east coast vocalist from the 50s, working here on one of the few sessions she ever recorded! Teal's got an exotic look on the cover, but the presentation of the music is right up there in the best mainstream jazz modes of the time – and unlike some of the other small combo vocal work on Bethlehem in the 50s, this album has the fuller feel of the sorts of records you might hear on a label like Capitol or Verve at the time. Ted Steele handles the arrangements – and is also credited with discovering Teal in Atlantic City – and the backings are a mix of jazzy flourishes and larger strings – never poppy or overdone. Titles include "Autumn Leaves", "El Cumbanchero", "Deed I Do", "For You My Love", "Who's Sorry Now", "Let's Fall In Love", and "Easy To Remember". CD also features three bonus alternate takes! CD

New Al GreenFull Of Fire ... LP
Hi Records, 1976. Used .... Out Of Stock
Hi Records perfection from the mighty Al Green – slightly later than some of his key early hits, but a record that shows Green still taking fire on all burners! Production is by the team of Al and Willie Mitchell – in a mode that's slightly fuller and more updated than before, but still very much that original mode the pair pioneered during Green's first years at Hi – a smooth, rich sound that's never slick, never poppy, and never cloying – and a mode that never falls into disco or pop temptations other singers were trapped in at the time. Backings are by the Memphis Horns and Memphis Strings – with some occasional backup vocals from Rhodes Chalmers & Rhodes or The Duncan Sisters – and titles include "I'd Fly Away", "That's The Way It Is", "Glory Glory", "Always", "Full Of Fire", "Together Again", "Soon As I Get Home", and "Let It Shine".

New VariousNighttime Lovers 6 – A Fine Collection Of Disco Funk Classics Of The 80s ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Nighttime Lovers are mighty big groovers – thanks to a fantastic selection of rare club cuts from the 80s! As with previous volumes, the cuts here go way past the obvious – no over-reissued singles, nor too-poppy soul songs – just tight-grooving numbers that show that there's plenty still to discover in the 80s soul scene! Instrumentation is heavy on keyboards and beats, but there's lots of warmer elements too – especially the vocals, which are often wrapped around the rhythms in a really seductive way. Titles include "Love Me Like This" by Real 2 Reel, "You Never Had A Love Like Mine" by Naima, "I Want Your Lovin" by Curtis Hairston, "Naughty Times" by Cutty, "Loveline (Frankie Rodriguez extended mix)" by Tavares, "The More They Knock" by Gloria D Brown, "Starting Over" by The Latest, "I Need Your Love" by Joy, "You Put The L In Love" by Alfie Silas, "On The One" by Lukk, and "The Champ" by American Gypsy.

New Debra DejeanDebra Dejean ... LP
Handshake, 1982. Used .... Out Of Stock
Breathy club work from Debra Dejean – an album recorded in Memphis during the early 80s, but with a feel that's more Euro sexy overall! Debra's approach reminds us a bit of some of the French or German disco of the decade before – sung with a soft sort of vocal style that almost comes across as whispering at times – set to rhythms that are mostly electric, and served up amidst simple basslines, beats, and keyboards. Tunes are relatively catchy, almost poppy at times – and titles include "Secret Car", "Under Fire", "Goosebumps", "Time Of The Season", "Waiting For The Right Sign", and "Strange Love".
