New TeaseTease (Epic) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lean, mid 80s pop soul and funk from Tease – funky and nicely thumping work from a group that features singer and songwriter Kipper Jones! Kipper would go on to bigger and brighter prospects as a hit songwriter for other artists, but, both of Tease's self-titled sets in the 80s – this one for Epic, and an earlier effort for RCA – are both unjustly slept and and stand up pretty strongly with better remembered R&B albums from the period. Some of the album reminds us of the funkier pop soul sounds coming out of Minneapolis in the mid 80s, though Tease came together from the west coast scene at the time – with beats, keys, synth, bass and soulful vocals driving it. Nice stuff that's well worth checking out! Includes "The Note", "Better Wild (Than Mild)", "Firestarter", "Body Heat", "Total Control", "Soft Music", "Baby Be Mine" and "I Wish You Were Here". CD

New TeaseTease (RCA) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A mix of bassy funk and mainstream electro grooving from Tease – the RCA album from the group, and a record that seems to share a lot with the Minneapolis groove of Prince and The Time! In fact, there's a partyful snapping quality to most of the tracks here that's very much in the Morris Day mode – tight tight tight rhythms from the group, done in a way that matches their sporty leather suits on the cover – with a sharpness that never lets up, and a great sense of a hook alongside the electric funk in the rhythms! Ollie Brown produced and arranged, and titles include "Bite", "Flash", "Boys & Girls", "Saturday Night", "Pretty Little Lady", "Put The Brakes On Baby", and "I Found In You". CD features two bonus tracks – "Flash (12" mix)" and "Flash (inst)". CD

New TeaseRemember ... CD
Epic/PTG (Netherlands), 1988. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the best albums in a big 80s run from Tease – thanks to great production from Mtume! The album's got a balance of soul and style that really holds together throughout – as the group finds especially strong ways of coming across on the ballads and mellower numbers, which often still have some heavy beats at the bottom! In a way, the set's one of the first to showcase a new style of slower soul that would hit even more strongly in the 90s – laidback cuts that still have an urban punch, but at a slower bpm. Titles include a unique remake of "I Can't Stand The Rain" – plus "Kick", "Tingle", "Somewhere Somebody", "Let's Stop Pretending", "Bad Reputation", "Remember", and "A Love Of Your Own". CD

New CerroneBrigade Mondaine – The Original Soundtrack Anthology (Vice Squad/La Secte De Marrakech/Vaudou Aux Caraibes) (3LP/3CD set) ... LP
Malligator/Because (France), 1978/1979/1980. New Copy 3LP & 3CD (reissue)... $79.99
A mighty great set – three rare soundtracks from dancefloor maestro Cerrone – none of which we ever see on vinyl here in the US! First up is Vice Squad (aka Brigade Mondaine) – a rare soundtrack from the mighty Cerrone – recorded right at the height of his electro disco fame, and with a very similar groove! The film was also titled Vice Squad in the US market – and the music here definitely echoes the sleaze of its subject matter – with loads of sweet clubby lines that are heavy in the keyboard styles you'll know from "Supernature" – but maybe even leaner and meaner here – with a stripped-down punch that makes for plenty of funky disco moments! The tracks are mostly groovers, but even the few mellow moments are great – and titles include "Phonic", "Give Me Love", "Make Up", "The Loft", "Strip Tease", "Experience", and "Deauville". The set follows with two more albums in the Brigade Mondaine series – both similarly groovy, with a wonderful mix of disco grooves and crime/cop soundtrack styles – and all three records come with original album sleeve artwork, and bonus CD versions of the material too! LP, Vinyl record album

Michel ColombierLes Onze Mille Verges/Tarot ... CD
Music Box (France), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $23.99
A pair of wonderful soundtracks from the great Michel Colombier – and film music that's every bit as groovy as some of his backings for French singers at the time! First up is Les Onze Mille Verges – a great mix of the groovy and the romantic – and one of the best soundtracks ever from mad French arranger Michel Colombier! The album kicks off with Colombier's famous "Batucada Erotica" – a darkly jagged number that brings together percussion and voices into a really striking groove, one that's made the track a favorite for years in the jazz dance crowd. Other tracks move into a style that's either mellower or more orchestral – the mellower cuts dipping along with a style that's half French (ala Francis Lai's 70s work), and half like some of the best mellow Italian soundtrack work of the same period. A few tunes have weird chorus vocals – almost in a Carmina Burana mode – and titles include "Les 11,000 Verges", "Wanda E Nadege", "Batucada Erotica", "Natacha", "Port Arthur", and "Strip Tease Pour Un Japonais". Tarot is a soundtrack that has a slightly different style – some nice use of vocals by Nanette Workman on a few tunes – a singer who brings a bit more soul to the record than the usual throwaway disco lyrics you'd hear on other European film scores. Lots of other numbers make use of keyboards, but in a very different way – sometimes stark and cold, but still quite tuneful – sometimes bubbling with a more Rhodes-like vibe that creates a nice sense of balance. Titles include "Breakdown", "Blind Luck", "Tarot", "Incantation", "Reading The Cards", "Doggie Style", and "Hearing Aid". CD

CommodoresHot On The Tracks ... LP
Motown, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Early funk from the Commodores – back in the days when Lionel Richie could still get up and groove! We'll be the first to admit that we're sometimes put off by the group, given their later hits, but it's records like this that actually remind us how great they could be – a mixture of funk and sweet soul, done with an incredibly well-crafted approach, and enough of a blend of the two styles to keep things interesting! The album's got a wonderfully tight quality – never slick or too smooth, but just nicely put together – commercial, but not so much so that it loses its soul. Titles include "Quick Draw", "Just To Be Close To You", "High On Sunshine", "Let's Get Started", "Can't Let You Tease Me", "Come Inside", and "Thumpin Music". LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria GaynorGloria Gaynor (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $14.99
An overlooked later set from the great Gloria Gaynor – a record issued after her big disco fame, but one that still shows the singer very much at the top of her game! The groove here is mostly upbeat – and mostly in a post-disco blend of 80s club and more electric modes, with Gloria's vocals really soaring right out over the top – richly expressive, and with all that sense of pride and power that made her a standout in a world of disco divas a few years before. Production is by Ollie E Brown, Rick Stevens, and Amir Bayyan – each of whom bring in their own brand of 80s twist to the music – and titles include "Mack Side", "Stop In The Name Of Love", "For You My Love", "Tease Me", "America", and "Even A Fool Would Let It Go". CD features bonus tracks – "Stop In The Name Of Love (12" single)", plus single mixes of "Tease Me", "America", and "Stop In The Name Of Love". CD

New SpankSpank You! ... CD
FTG, 1985. Used ... $3.99
Great work here from Spank – a group with a much warmer groove than some of the "spank" records you might know from the disco scene of a few years before! This time around, the rhythms are mostly midtempo – tight-stepping grooves with lots of 80s soul touches intact – a strong emphasis on beats and keyboards, and plenty of warm vocals over the top! Lead vocals are by Eddie Green – who also gets album credits for "sex, dance, romance, chancellor, strip-tease, and ladies" – quite a lot to contribute. Titles include "Oh Baby", "You", "Classy Lady", "Come On & Dance", "Night People", "It's Not What You Think", and "Freakin Babies". CD

Koko TaylorBasic Soul ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
Basic soul, plenty of blues, and a fair bit of funk as well – a killer from Koko Taylor, recorded in that best style of late Chess Records! Koko sings here more like a funky female soul artist than on her later blues – and the record crackles with energy right from the start, thanks to impeccable production from Willie Dixon – who really knows how to keep things lean and mean! The core group is nice and tight – and all Chicago-bred – Joe Young on guitar, Lafayette Leake on piano, and Louis Satterfield on bass – and Gene Barge added just a bit of horns over the top, to deepen the soul of the tunes. Titles include "Pollution", "Tease Your Man", "That's The Way Love Is", "Un Huh My Baby", "It's A Poor Dog", "I Need More & More", and "Let Me Love You Baby". CD

New Undisputed TruthCosmic Truth ... LP
Gordy, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
A great little album by the Undisputed Truth – with more than a few numbers that have a "space" theme to them, and cool keyboards by Mark Davis to back up the sound. More than a few funky moments in the mix – and tracks include "1990", "Sqeeze Me Tease Me", "Earthquake Snake", "Spaced Out", and the great cut "UFO's". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousVamps Et Vampire – The Songs Of Serge Gainsbourg ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... $14.99
Serge Gainsbourg never slept – and during his short time on this planet, managed to cut not only a host of incredible records for himself, but also write and produce some amazing music for a whole host of female singers too! The work on this set is mostly French – and features a range that goes past just the likely compatriots from Serge's inner circle, to include bigger names from Parisian pop who were touched by his sublime songwriting skills, and his innate ear for a sexy groove! The album's a wonderfully focused collection of female French numbers – all of which have that undeniable slinky sound we love in Gainsbourg's own recordings too. Titles include "Pour Aimer Il Faut Etre Trois" by Isabelle Aubert, "Les Yeux Pour Pleurer" by Nana Mouskouri, "La Chanson De Prevert" by Vicky Autier, "La Javanaise" by Juliette Greco, "Baudelaire" by Catherine Sauvage, "Les Sucettes" by France Gall, "Elastique" by Charlotte Gainsbourg, "Tandem" by Vanessa Paradis, "Lulu" by Bambou, "Con C'Est Con Ces Consequences" by Jane Birkin, "L'Anamour" by Francoise Hardy, "Reves Et Caravells" by Michele Arnaud, "Jane B" by Jane Birkin, "Hier Ou Demain" by Marianne Faithfull, "Strip Tease" by Juliette Greco, and "Contact" by Brigitte Bardot.

George BensonWhile The City Sleeps ... LP
Warner, 1986. Near Mint- ... $2.99
This one's far more of a straight soul album than most of George Benson's earlier vocal sets – but as usual, the work is pretty high caliber throughout – and George is definitely on top of his game here, effortlessly beating others at the style they'd all started to cop from Benson by the time! Production is mostly by Narada Michael Walden, with that mix of warmth and depth that graced most of his soul sides from the time – but other tracks also get production from Kashif and Tommy LiPuma, who definitely up the pop quotient on the set. Titles include "Teaser", "Shiver", "While The City Sleeps", "Kisses In The Moonlight", "Too Many Times", and "Did You Hear Thunder". LP, Vinyl record album

DellsThey Said It Couldn't Be Done – But We Did It ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Brilliant 70s work by The Dells – and an album that has the group reinventing themselves wonderfully, by moving over to Philly and recording with Norman Harris! As he did with so many other artists at the time, Harris took the group firmly into the clubs with a soaring Sigma sort of groove – one that supports the group with backings from players that include key Philly talents like Bobby Eli, Ron Kersey, Larry Washington, and Earl Young – but which also keeps plenty of space for the sublime harmonies that always made The Dells so great! Titles include "Teaser", "Our Love", "Could It Be", "Rich Man Poor Man", "Waiting For You", "Get On Down", and "Betcha Never Been Loved". LP, Vinyl record album

Andrzej KorzynskiMan Of Marble ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Maybe the coolest record we've ever heard from Polish soundtrack artist Andrez Korzynski – done in a range of groovy styles that rivals some of the best Italian and French work of the time! At points, there's an all-out funky feel to the record that matches Euro cop/crime soundtracks with effortless ease – and at other passages, things are still pretty darn groovy, even when mellow – using guitar and keyboards in a laidback way that has you knowing there's plenty of funk to come! Most cuts are from the film Man Of Marble, but the set also includes a few from the later Man Of Iron that are equally great – and titles include "Man Of Marble", "The Port", "A Witness", "In The Shipyard", "The Katowice Ironworks", "The Striptease", and "Truncheon Man".

New Del The Funky HomosapienFunk 'Em (clean, A-plus rmx, inst, acapella)/Going Off/Make Me Feel ... 12-inch
Hiero Imperium, 2004. Used (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Del The Funky Homosapien returns with a teaser for his 11th Hour LP, his way-too-long delayed follow up to Both Sides Of The Brain, and his platinum-selling cameo with the Gorillaz! "Funk 'Em" is a back-to-basics blow off of any haters, with a catchy synth hook and sputtering beats, self-produced by Del. The A-plus remix is has a darker edge, which we may actually prefer to the main track. The two tracks on the flip are just as strong, with Del leisurely laying his trademark rubberband delivery over some staid, solid beats that bounce along in service of the rhymes – which is the way it should be with a such a celebrated rhymer! 12-inch, Vinyl record
