The title track to Fat Larry's album of the same name – and easily one of the greatest club tracks ever recorded by the group! The cut is equal parts disco and funky – stepping out with the smoothness of the latter, but keeping plenty of the instrumental interplay of the former – especially in the choppy guitars and conga rhythms that are the main driving part of the groove! Vocals are warm and sweet – very catchy, and in a classy chorus mode! 12-inch, Vinyl record

We'll be honest, we like Barbara Mason more as an adult artist than we do as a younger one – especially the way she sounds on sets like this! The album's got a great gentle groove at times – Butch Ingram production that brings in modern, mature elements – but also somehow unlocks a more deeply soulful vocal approach than on some of Mason's earlier albums. A few cuts have a great stepping groove – and titles include her classic mellow cut "She Got The Papers (I Got The Man)" – part of the Barbara/Shirley/Richard Dimples Fields song cycle – as well as a remake of her first hit "Yes, I'm Ready", plus lots of others like "On & Off", "I Love Having You Around", "I Can Want You", "Let Me Give You Love", and "You Did Not Stay Last Night". 13 cuts in all, with much more than the original LP!

Philly soul man Bobby Eli arranged and produced this batch of righteous tracks for the early version of WMOT Productions in the city. The sound of the group is sort of a rumbling, slightly funky one – with ensemble vocals on a number of tracks, and a bass-heavy soul groove. Titles include "You're Not Him", "Telling It Like It Is", "Stone Cold Freak", "Love Shortage", and "One On One". LP, Vinyl record album
Ahhh . . . It takes a record like this one to remind us just what a magical crossover time the post-disco, post-punk days of the early 80s could be! Take two white guys from Denmark – Tim Stahl and John Guldberg – give them a drum machine and some funky beats, and out comes the breakdance classic "White Horse", which was one of the more sinister dancefloor numbers of its time. Sure, it's super-kitschy, but it hit pop-and-break crowd bigtime, and had kids from The Bronx to Bed-Stuy ripping up linoleum everywhere, and dragging it out into busy sidewalks where they could block off traffic! The other tracks on the album aren't as great, but ok electro pop – and titles include "Sunshine Reggae", "Elevator Boy", "Slowmotion Girl", and "Walking In The Sunshine". LP, Vinyl record album
