Marvin Gaye's last album ever – and a sensuous batch of grooves that almost return him to the sound of Let's Get It On! The style here is a bit more modern, but the sound is still great – a smoother approach to soul than most of Gaye's contemporaries at the time, recorded in a way that has the vocals soaring majestically over the top of the backings! Slight undercurrents of funk spice things up somewhat, but still avoid any mainstream 80s groove cliches – and Marvin wrote, arranged, and produced the album himself (although with a bit of help from Chicago organist Odell Brown on the hit "Sexual Healing"!) Titles include "Sexual Healing", "My Love Is Waiting", "Third World Girl", "Turn On Some Music", "Joy", and "Midnight Lady". (Includes the printed inner sleeve.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Energy To Burn
Columbia/Roadshow, 1976. Very Good+
The BT crew definitely take on a strong disco sound on this album, but their up-tempo soul still kicks it nice and live, and the record's got more solid moments than you might expect! Carlos Ward handled a lot of the arrangements and wrote a fair bit of the tunes – and tracks include "No ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sunbeam
Columbia, 1978. Very Good Gatefold
A great little album from The Emotions – largely because it sounds a lot like prime mid 70s Earth Wind & Fire, with female vocals added over the top – ultimately, pulling away with a soulful charm all its own! Maurice White produced the whole set, and it's got a soaring spacey ... LP, Vinyl record album

Monster Strikes Again
SAM/Columbia, 1979. Near Mint-
A smooth bit of pop disco from John Davis – the kind of record we never used to rate properly, but which sounds better and better as the years go by! Of course, part of that has to do with the fact that the album includes the massive cut "Bourgie Bourgie", one of those tunes that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, Mid 70s. Very Good- Gatefold
Fantastic stuff through and through – and almost a "best of" best of collection from the 70s! The album's a key illustration of the genius of Earth Wind & Fire on Columbia Records – because by the time the set was released in 1978, most of the tracks were already well-know ...

Columbia, 1974. Very Good+
One of Boz Scaggs most soulful albums thanks to production from Johnny Bristol, and arrangements from HB Barnum! Titles include "Slow Dancer", "I Got Your Number", "Hercules", "Take It For Granted", and "Pain Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Mandre
Motown, 1977. Very Good+
We have to admit we've passed this album up for years and years, as it seems to be rather ubiquitous in these parts, and boy were we mistaken! Side one is mostly instrumental, and sounds like a lost Dexter Wansel album, with sophisticated, spacey post-fusion arrangements and a quasi-futuristic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sky's The Limit
ABC, 1978. Near Mint-
The third in a really great run from Rhythm Heritage – a group who continued to hold up a strong level of instrumental quality, despite the fact that they'd topped the charts, and were smack right in the middle of the LA studio scene at the time! Part of the credit goes to producer/arranger ... LP, Vinyl record album

Showtime
Smash, 1964. Very Good-
One of the odder James Brown records from the 60s – as it includes 11 studio tracks with overdubbed audience. James was under contract with King at the same time, and couldn't record new vocal material for Smash – so the record doesn't contain any JB originals, but covers of Louis ...
