4.50 11

Late 80s boogie funk from Cameo guitarist and keyboardist Charlie Singleton & Modern Man, though Charlie himself may very well be this Modern Man, as he also wrote and produced the record – with allstar assistance from his Cameo partners, Peabo Bryson and others! Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained is his first for Epic, in a similar pop funk mode as Cameo's work of the time, though a bit leane and with Charlie's personal touches right out front. Thumping programming, some electro touches and some some blazing guitar by Charlie when the mood strikes! Includes "I Wanna Be With You", and 80s groove cover of "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)", "Spending Money", "Over My Head" with Peabo and a nice bit of sax, "Love Machine", "Vain", "Almost Over You" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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

Fickle (with bonus tracks)
Buddah/FTG, 1983. New Copy
A mix of 80s groove and mellower material from Michael Henderson – a sweet extension of the jazzy soul he first laid out in the 70s! The style here is a bit more electric and contemporary than before – less of the deeper, warmer tones – and a bit more synth drums and keyboards. ... CD

Atlantic/FTG, 1985. New Copy
A classic from Jenny Burton – only the singer's second album as a solo act, but already a set that has Jenny hitting on all burners! The mellow numbers are great – never sleepy or too commercial, but pushed into just the right blend of polish and soul – and the groovers have some ... CD

Excellent work by Glenn Jones – even if the original record was only a 5 track EP! The set is one of those strange little records issued in the early 80s, when the music industry was trying to figure out a way to make money between the ever-escalating cost of the LP and the less-popular ... CD

Xscape
Epic, 2014. New Copy
Some of the best work we've heard from Michael Jackson in years – even though the set brings together lost recordings from the many years of Michael's career! The range of sounds here is really wonderful, and the performances are surprisingly great – moments that somehow never found ... CD

Can't get away from this dog – and who'd want to anyway, with music this funky! The set features a load of rare Rufus Thomas material done during his early years at Stax – that pre-funk period when Thomas was only recording a bit for the label, but really coming up with some amazing ... CD

ABC/Real Gone, 1975. New Copy
A really unusual chapter in the career of the 5th Dimension – a mid 70s set recorded for ABC Records, but one that also has the group reunited with producer/arranger Jimmy Webb – who'd done so much for them in the 60s! The mode here is very different than before – bolder, more ... CD
