Ray Parker JrSex & The Single Man ... LP
Arista, 1985. Sealed ... $0.49
Ray Parker's definitely a single man at this point in his career – leaving behind his earlier role in the Raydio group, and working here as writer and producer on a string of 80s hits! The album follows strongly in the catchy, crossover mode of Parker's work from the middle part of the decade – almost equally balanced between mainstream rock and soul styles of the time – with lots of popping rhythms and plenty of Ray's guitar underneath his vocals. Titles include "I'm A Dog", "Sex & The Single Man", "I'm In Love", "Girls Are More Fun", "Good Time Baby", and "Everybody Wants Someone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

New Ray Parker Jr & RaydioTwo Places At The Same Time ... LP
Arista, 1980. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Solid funky work from Ray Parker Jr & Raydio – a set that's lean and focused, and still very much in the earlier Raydio groove! Parker's still a bit away from the spotlight at this point – leaving the band to have the strongest role in the record, which is a great thing, given how well they strike a soulful groove – blending funkier rhythms with smoother soul production, all to set Ray up for lead vocals. Titles include "Two Places At The Same Time", "It's Time To Party Now", "Can't Keep From Cryin", "For Those Who Like To Groove", and "Tonight's The Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cut corner.)

New Ray Parker JrChartbusters ... LP
Arista, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
A very fitting title – not just because of Ray's big fame for the theme of the film Ghostbusters, but also because Parker was really hitting the charts at the time! The album's something of a compilation – one that features a few moments from earlier in Parker's career, mixed with a few fresh tracks out at the time of the record – showing the full range of Ray's talents in the early 80s. Titles include "Ghosbusters (12" single rmx)", "Christmas Time Is Here", "Invasion", "Woman Out Of Control", "A Woman Needs Love", "Jamie", "The Other Woman", and "I've Been Digging You". LP, Vinyl record album

BohannonPhase II ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $4.99
A nice disco record from Hamilton Bohannon. The album mainly contains uptempo dance numbers but there are a few slower songs like "Daddy's Little Son" – a dedication to his son whose picture is on the cover of the album. The other tracks are "Andrea", "But What Is A Dream", "Bohannon's Disco Symphony", "Isn't It A Beautiful Morning", "Just Doing My Thang", and "Moving Fast". Some of Bohannon's original band members like Ray Parker, Jr. turn up playing guitar on some of the songs. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear. Labels have some marker.)

Randy HallI Belong To You ... CD
MCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1984. New Copy ... $18.99
A catchy slice of mid 80s soul from Randy Hall – an excellent musician who handles quite a bit of the instrumentation, on top of being a charismatic singer – and this one's produced by Ray Parker Jr, whose ear for catchy hooks is in top form! Hall spins a lot of plates on his own – most of the vocals, some guitar, bass, keys and programming – but there's a lot of other great players in the studio, including producer Parker – and that dedication to real musicianship puts I Belong To You on higher level than a lot of pop soul, circa '84! Great stuff! Includes "I've Been Watching You (Jamie's Girl)", "A Gentleman", "Feel My Eyes", "She's My Little Star", 'I Want To Touch You", "I Belong To You", "A Real Man" and more. CD

Charlie ParkerSwedish Schnapps – Genius Of Charlie Parker #8 ... LP
Verve, Early 50s. Good+ ... $8.99
A late 50s album that issues some killer combo material by Bird! One half of the album features work by a group that includes Red Rodney, John Lewis, Ray Brown, and Kenny Clarke – and the other features Parker with Miles Davis, Walter Bishop Jr, Max Roach, and Teddy Kotick. Tracks are short, and include some classics – and the album includes alternate takes of 4 numbers. Titles include "Si Si", "Swedish Schnapps", "Back Home Blues", "Lover Man", "Au Privave", "She Rote", and "Star Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label promo pressing. Cover has some wear and splitting.)

Jr TuckerJr Tucker ... LP
Geffen, 1983. Sealed ... $7.99
Jr Parker gets some great help from Ray Parker – not that Ray's a family member or anything like that – he's just got a great ear for the kind of groove Jr's going for in his music! Ray produced and plays sweet guitar and keyboards on most tracks – giving the music that great Raydio bounce – which turns out to be a wonderful fit for the youthful Jr's vocals – almost styled in a Michael Jackson mode at points, but a bit deeper at other times too! Titles include "I Was Made For Dancing", "Too Young To Fall In Love", "If It's Love You're After", "Treat Me Right", "Mr Telephone Man", and "Bad Girls". LP, Vinyl record album

New Cheryl LynnGot To Be Real – The Best Of Cheryl Lynn ... CD
Columbia/Sony, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Plenty real soul here – a killer collection of Columbia grooves by Cheryl Lynn – a set that runs right from the clubby start to the more commercial finish of her time at the label! The package is a great illustration of Cheryl's ability to rise to the occasion in just about any setting – and although work is handled by a variety of producers – including Marty Paic, Ray Parker Jr, Barry Blue, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and even Luther Vandross – Cheryl always comes out on top in the end! Titles include her great vocals on "Georgy Porgy" by Toto, presented here in its disco version – plus Lynn classics "Got To be Real", "Star Love (disco version)", "All My Lovin", "I've Got Just What You Need", "I've Got Faith In You", "Encore (single)", "If This World Were Mine", "It's Gonna Be Right", "Shake It Up Tonight", and "Day After Day".

New VariousCosmic Disco?! Cosmic Rock!!! ... CD
Eskimo (UK), Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A cool collection of electronic tunes from years past – mostly early 80s numbers, mixed by Marco Dionig and Daniele Baldelli – the latter of whom really helped transform the European scene with his famous nightclub work! The music here marks the shift that Baldelli made with his Cosmic nightclub at the end of the 70s – a move into darker rhythms after years of disco interest – a shift that was aided nicely by some of the more electronic tunes of the post-punk and post-prog years overseas. Tracks on the set are from a really surprising blend of sources, but they all come together beautifully in the mix – and titles include "Say Something" by Fra Lippo Lippi, "Night Like This" by The Romantics, "Mosche Bildt Njet" by Strafe Fur Rebellion, "Body Heat" by Alicia Bridges, "Dansparc" by Martha & The Muffins, "Break Down Barriers" by Translator, "Ink Man" by Kevin Harrison, "Positive Negative" by Positive Noise, "The Other Woman" by Ray Parker Jr, "Ulster Defense" by Bronx Irish Catholics, "Better Be Good To Me" by Spider, "Potatoland Theme" by Spirit, "I Got Your Number" by La Bionda, "Prepare To Energize" by Torch Song, and "50 In A 25 Zone" by Dream Syndicate.
