Stroke

LP (Item 521431) Omni, 1985 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

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.

RCA, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
Although the Main Ingredient were best known for their early 70's singles, this album from '74 is a wonderfully complex batch of tunes that shows that the group were taking a cue from some of their hipper contemporaries, and pushing past a stock hit formula.

One of the most fantastic albums by the JBs – a masterpiece of funky jamming, tight instrumentation, and that free yet tight style of the James Brown 70s years!

Warner, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
The last album recorded by Charles Wright with the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band – and a set that's even more stretched out and trippy than their other albums! Gone are the tight short cuts of earlier days, and in their place are longer messed-up funky numbers that have more of a jamming ... LP, Vinyl record album
