New Ray Parker JrSex & The Single Man ... LP
Arista, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 JrWoman Out Of Control ... LP
Arista, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Plenty of control here – as Ray Parker's at the height of his 80s hitmaking power, scoring strongly on one of his key classics from the decade for Arista! The tunes have a bit more of that catchy, rhythm-heavy sound that Parker was forging at the start of the decade – a quality that moves away from straight mainstream soul into crossover territory that would only suit Ray even more strongly a few years later. There's plenty of numbers here that aim strongly for radio play on both sides of the fence, but Parker balances things out with enough traces of his roots to keep things interesting. Titles include "Electronic Lover", "Woman Out Of Control", "Invasion", "N2U2", "She Still Feels The Need", and "In The Heat Of The Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

New Ray Parker Jr & RaydioTwo Places At The Same Time ... LP
Arista, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.)

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
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

BohannonPhase II ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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.)
