The Dazz Band may be wild and free in the title, but the album's tighter than ever – a lean, focused approach to the Dazz Band sound – done here with loads of 80s production and instrumentation in the mix! The rhythms are heavy with drum machine lines – often mixed with keyboard bits and swirled together with a sound that's even more crossover than some of the group's earlier work. Vocals often take a back seat to the grooves – but on the ballads they shine through nicely, and remind us of the group's roots. Titles include "The Beat That's Right", "Wild & Free", "Love MIA", "Sunglasses", "Something You Said", and "Time Will Heal A Broken Heart". CD features bonus tracks – "Wild & Free (ext dance rmx)", "Last Chance For Love", "Love MIA (house mix)", and "A Place In My Heart".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Remember
Epic/PTG (Netherlands), 1988. New Copy
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 ... CD

I Belong To You
MCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1984. New Copy
A catchy slice of mid 80s soul from Randy Hall – an excellent musician who handles quite a bit of the instrumentation, on top of being a charismatic singer – and this one's produced by Ray Parker Jr, whose ear for catchy hooks is in top form! Hall spins a lot of plates on his own ... CD

Movin' On
Motown/PTG (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy
A killer early set from The Commodores – and exactly the kind of record that shows why the group was so great at the start! Long before they were the giants of adult pop, the group were a tight funk act who were able to really balance mellow moments with more full-on grooves – a ... CD

MCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy
One of the greatest albums ever from Al Hudson and One Way – a set that still has the group bristling with loads of funky energy – yet also hitting a groove that's wonderfully smooth as well! One Way were really one of the top of the larger funk combos of the time – and this set's ... CD

A&M/PTG (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy
The first album by Atlantic Starr – a tight set of modern soul tunes with a very different feel than their later work! Part of the credit goes to Bobby Eli – who arranged and produced the set, giving it a feel that's almost late Philly – tight, sophisticated, and right on the ... CD

Love Fantasy
Polydor/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy
One of our favorite Roy Ayers albums of all time – and an overlooked gem from Roy's late 70s years at Polydor! This set's a bit more laidback and less clubby than some other Ayers work of the period – which means it's got this wonderful jazzy groove throughout – a sweet mix of ... CD

Cotillion (Japan), 1982. New Copy
Massive funk from the ADC Band – some lesser-known cats from the early 80s scene on Atlantic Records – but a group with a sense of soul and power that knocks over most of their contemporaries! For those who've ever doubted the influence of P-Funk on the rest of soul music, you only ... CD

Oh What A Feeling
Warner (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Overlooked solo work from Mavis Staples – a set recorded around the time the Staple Singers were making their move into more clubby and modern soul modes – both of which Mavis handles here! The album was recorded at Muscle Shoals, and still has a deep soul core – but it also ... CD

Sedan
Cotillion (Japan), 1985. New Copy
The basslines step right out front at the start of the record – and really set the pace for all the wonderful grooves to come! Sedan are an overlooked mid-80s combo who recorded for Cotillion – and they've got a lean groove that's right up there with the label's best work from the ... CD

Curtom/Warner (Japan), 1969. New Copy
Quite possibly our favorite-ever album by the Impressions! The record is a key transitional one – and it has them opening up the politics that were often hidden by spiritual metaphors on earlier ABC albums, into a righteous soul groove that hints a lot at the overblown direction Curtis ... CD

Miracles
Atlantic (Japan), 1981. New Copy
A brilliant second set from Change – working here without Luther Vandross on lead vocals, but hardly missing a beat at all! As before, the basslines are at the core of the set – a sweet stripped-down approach that brings even more focus onto the bottom of the groove for early 80s ... CD
