Early 80s funky soul from Search – a tight little group with a wickedly sharp edge! The combo is led by Les Paul Roque, fresh from his stint with Kool & The Gang – and the vibe here is similar to that group, but with a smaller combo approach overall – lots of bass at the forefront, and some of those great jazzy licks over the top – the sort that really made Kool sparkle in the early 80s! This jazzy aspect really deepens the record nicely – giving it a more solid, sophisticated groove that's also got a touch of the energy that the best Capitol Records groups had at the time. Titles include the killer opener "Like The Way You Funk With Me", the P-Funk-ish "Peanut Butter & Jam", plus "Do You Love Me Still", "Missing You", "A Song For Carrie", and "Get Up Off Your Assets". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "I Like The Way You Funk With Me (12" mix)" and "Peanut Butter & Jam (single version)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A club classic on Salsoul – with a soaring sound that's still grooving dancefloors today! The record was arranged and conducted by Leroy Burgess – who also sang lead vocals and wrote all the material – and it's got a sound that's similar to some of the later uptempo grooves that ... CD

Rochelle and the girls are in full force on this late 70s Salsoul groover – with production by Norman Harris and Tom Moulton! The opening trio of cuts have the continuously flowing vibe of an extended suite – and it's a really exhilarating 16 minutes of dancefloor soul – with ... CD
Mercury/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy
A massive 2-fer from The Chi-Lites – 2 amazing post-Brunswick records on a single CD! Happy Being Lonely is beautiful beautiful work from The Chi-Lites – and a record that we might even say tops the best of their late Brunswick book! Despite the move from that label to Mercury, the ... CD

Elektra/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978. New Copy
A sweeeeeet groover by Patrice Rushen – her first album for Elektra, and a stunning blend of funky jazz and soul! The record really has Patrice stepping out from her earlier years at Prestige – working in some surprisingly great vocals next to tight lines on Fender Rhodes, synth, and ... CD
Gold Mind/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
One of the best records ever cut by this soulful Philly female trio! The album's one of the first on Salsoul's Gold Mind subsidiary – and it features sparkling club production by the Harris/Baker/Young team – a landmark force not only in Philly disco, but 70s female soul as well – ... CD
Red Greg/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy
A holy grail, and one of the only records ever cut by Donna McGhee – an incredibly soulful club singer who worked with both Patrick Adams and Roy Ayers! This album's her legendary side for the team of Adams and Greg Carmichael – and it's got a sweet and mellow groove that's unlike ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy
An excellent groover from the legendary Vince Montana! Vince arranged, produced, conducted, and wrote just about all of this second album by hard-grooving Salsoul Orchestra – and the album's a no-nonsense batch of disco instrumentals that's way better than many of the fake albums of the type ... CD
West End/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
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 ... CD
Feeling Good
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1982. New Copy
Stellar sounds from the great Roy Ayers – an early 80s album for Polydor, but a set that's still got the wonderfully tight, wonderfully groovy feel of his late 70s albums for the label! Roy's really perfected his sense of balance by this time – and does a great job of balancing ... CD
Fever
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1979. New Copy
A great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely ... CD
