LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

The bass gets plenty of stroke on this mid 80s set – a record that hangs somewhere between 80s groove and Prince-era funk – but with a bit of quiet storm feel at times too! The tunes are pretty lean, not nearly as excessive as they could be – and often, a key instrumental element really helps set the scene from the start – making for a simple, but effective hook into a song. Overall, Stroke's got a sound that's a lot classier than their name – definitely one of those 80s groups that should have risen a lot higher than some of the bigger chart acts of the era. Titles include "All Night", "Take Me Back", "Tell Me", "Uptown", "Just Let Me Luv You", and "Stroke". (Cover has light wear & a some pen.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The second album by this legendary 70s funk combo – best known as Herbie Hancock's backing band, but sounding great here on their own.
