LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

The first Shakatak album to heavily use vocals – and a set that marks a great move by the group into soul music! At a time when jazzier styles were becoming welcome in 80s soul, Shakatak's sound is very well placed – a smooth blend of keyboards and guitar, set to sweet-stepping rhythms that also prove to be great for the female vocals on the set! The approach is a bit like some of the best soul fusion over at Columbia Records at the start of the 80s – or a bit like work coming from the Crusaders camp – and despite the UK origins of the set, the group more than match the best US releases of this nature at the time. Titles include "I Lose Myself", "Invitations", "Lonely Afternoon", "Steppin Out", "Usual Situation", and "Sol Fuego".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Some nice heavy Afro-funk grooves, courtesy of Osibisa, for this follow-up score to the original Super Fly! The sound of the music is quite different than Curtis Mayfield's famous soundtrack – and there's lots of heavy bass and percussion, plus some additional arrangements by Michael Gibbs. ...

Revolucion
AVI, 1980. Sealed
Latin inflected club grooves by the legendary El Coco! The band was one of the most successful projects of the Rinder/Lewis production team – and although this album's not their best, it's still very much in their classic mode. Most tracks are nice and long, with a disco groove, and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
