A great but overlooked bit of crossover funk from Chas Jankel – guitarist for Ian Dury & The Blockheads during the late 70s! The real standout here is the original version of "Ai No Corrida" – a track probably best remembered from Quincy Jones' Dude album, but sounding even better here in Jankel's original! We're pretty partial to the cut "Glad To Know You" – which is a wicked post-punk crossover tune – almost in the Human League mode, but with some of the playful qualities of Ian Dury's work!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Next Plateau, 1989. Near Mint-
A seminal bit of soul from a key transitional moment! During most of the mid to late 80s, American soul was losing a lot of its edge, especially in production terms. Then, from out of nowhere, Sybil came and dropped the bomb – a righteous new sound that took a lot of classic elements, and ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
