Surprisingly nice work from Peter Brown – a groover who still managed to hit on all burners after his early years at TK Records! Brown's definitely got a crossover feel here – clubby rhythms, but topped with vocals that belie his look on the front – and which, along with the catchy grooves, should have done more than enough to get Peter some wider play with early 80s audiences. Yet there's also some key dancefloor craft here – no-nonsense approach to the bottom of the tunes, and never too much cloying production up top – which serves to keep things nice and lean, and plenty clean too. Titles include "Give Me Up", "Heaven In Your Eyes", "Shall We Dance", "Danger", "The Love Game", "Satisfaction Guaranteed", and "Baby Gets High". CD features bonus tracks – "Baby Gets High (7" mix)", "Baby Gets High (12" mix)", "Overnight Sensation (12" mix)", and "Overnight Sensation (inst)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

CBS/FTG, 1986. New Copy
CD...$9.99 18.99
Classic 80s soul from Johnny Kemp – a sweet-voiced singer who steps out beautifully on this Columbia debut! Johnny's got a sound that's somewhat informed by some of the crossover soul of a few years back – but although his music is commercial, it's still got plenty going on at the ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1980. New Copy
An overlooked set from Melba Moore – an Epic session from the start of the 80s, and one that's served up with a nicely understated groove! There's a bit of disco in the mix, but the sound's never too far over the top – and in a way, Melba's working in the same sophisticated territory ... CD
Do I Make You Feel Better (with bonus tracks)
Epic/FTG, 1980. New Copy
Definitely the sort of album to make you feel better – given the tight, soulful sounds of Ndugu Chancler and this Chocolate Jam Company! The album's got roots in jazz – Ndugu's a drummer with work on countless other albums – but also steps out with plenty of soul, too – ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1986. New Copy
Poppy passion from Krystol – a sweet 80s trio with a definite way with a hook! The set's got a well-balanced mainstream sound – one that helps the vocals find a fullness right away, either on the leads or harmonies – both woven together over the top of the tight, beat-heavy ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1985. New Copy
Bumping, bouncing soul from Krystol – one of the strongest female groups of the 80s, and one of the few who really helped push the sound further at the time! The groove here is equal parts funk and soul – and has a brashness that a girl act wouldn't have had a decade before – ... CD
Too Sharp (with bonus tracks)
Columbia/FTG, 1985. New Copy
A nearly-lost relic of 80s groove – and a sharp little side project from Rick James! Process and group are clearly going for a sound to rival the Time on this set – working as a well-costumed group ensemble with a bass-heavy funky groove at the bottom of every track – and their ... CD
Minaret/Omnivore, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
Overlooked gems from the southern soul scene of the late 60s and early 70s – all the soul singles issued on the Minaret Record label, presented here with both the a and b-sides intact! Minaret material all came from the legendary Playground Studios – that unusual north Florida ... CD
Brown Door/Shout (Japan), 1983. New Copy
A sweet sweet groover from the East Bay's Marvin Holmes – an artist who's still got all the same charm here as on his famous indie sides from the 70s! Marvin's always been very much his own man – and this great little album has him stepping along in a mix of smooth soul and funk, with ... CD
