CD


4.60 11

Sweet poppy soul from Five Star – moving strongly here on a set that's got lots of early 90s new jack elements – including a fair bit of beats that really work well with the group's trading of male and female vocals! Things are plenty catchy throughout – not the deepest soul you might ever listen to, but the kind of work that definitely shines brighter than most in the mainstream R&B world at the time. Titles include "Come To Me", "Shine", "Love Can't Wait", "Right Over", "The Start Of Forever", "Sentimental", "Save A Place", and "The Love You Bring To Me". CD features 6 bonus tracks – all different mixes of "Shine"!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Super Star
Warner/Cherry Red (UK), 1978. New Copy
The first album from Howard Kenney – and a set that may not have made him the superstar promised in the title, but a pretty nice record overall! Kenney's got this cool, classy approach to soul – a style you'd guess from his look on the cover, and which comes across without any too-comme ... CD

Force (with bonus tracks)
De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
Kool & The Gang's a little bit slicker and a little bit smoother on The Force than on earlier classic records – but thankfully, they're still getting on down to the funky sounds! The Force does indeed have more of a spacey boogie than a jungle boogie vibe, but they're still doing what we ... CD
Epic/Shout (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy
The post-Stax, Epic southern soul of the Soul Children – 1976's Finders Keepers and 1977's Where Is Your Woman Tonight back-to-back! Finders Keepers is a strong little album by the group – recorded with a very different sound than the Stax work – but one that's still totally ... CD

A big solo moment for Dee C Lee – a singer who'd famously worked with The Style Council, Wham, and even Guru – but who shines plenty brightly here on her own! Dee C wrote most of the songs on the set herself – a few with help from Paul Weller – and the approach here follows ... CD

LaToya Jackson in heavy pop mode for the 80s – working here with help from both Full Force and the Stock Aiken Waterman team – both of whom give her a very bouncy groove! Full Force start things off with lots of their heavy-beat bottoms – a forceful approach to catchy soul that ... CD
Epic/Shout (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Damn soulful work from Erma Franklin – the lesser-known sister of Aretha and Carolyn Franklin, working here on 60s sides cut for the Epic and Shout labels! Most of the material here was only issued as singles back in the day – so the set's an essential full-length overview of Franklin's ... CD
