An overlooked gem from the 80s soul scene – a set by a group with all the right hooks and grooves of their bigger contemporaries – yet one who also manage to put things across with their own sort of vibe as well! Some of the standout tracks have a bouncy feel that's going right for the charts – and the lead vocals by Tara Davis really hit the perfect blend for these rhythms – short, sharp, and super-catchy – yet also managing to reach a wider range too – in ways that make for deeper soul than you might expect in such a setting! Male group members handle backup, and Tim Moore sings a bit of lead too – and titles include "You're Gonna Be Mine", "Missing You", "It's A Choice", "Hypnotized", "The First Time", "Special One", and "Love Calls". CD features 4 bonus tracks – "It's A Choice (club rmx)", "Hypnotized (club rmx)", "Hypnotized (hyp mix)", and "It's A Choice (dub)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Try It Out
MCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1983. New Copy
A wicked set of electro soul from Klique – a trio who've got a lot more to offer than some of their 80s groove contemporaries! The backings are a bit more electric than the funk of their roots, but the overall groove is graced with very strong vocals from the trio of Howard Huntsberry, ... CD
Dangerous
Mercury/PTG (Netherlands), 1984. New Copy
A tighter sound than before for The Bar-Kays – that lean approach to funky grooves that some of their contemporaries were hitting as the 80s moved on – yet still served up here by the full ensemble with a relatively fresh feel overall. Amidst the beats and keyboards, there's still lots ... CD
Mercury/PTG (Netherlands), 1983. New Copy
The Gap Band are definitely Jammin on this sweet little set from the early 80s – hitting that fierce funk mode they do so well, with lots of snapping lines at the bottom of the rhythms! The style is trademark Gap all the way through – a percolated approach to funk that's tight, but ... CD
A&M/PTG (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy
The first album by Atlantic Starr – a tight set of modern soul tunes with a very different feel than their later work! Part of the credit goes to Bobby Eli – who arranged and produced the set, giving it a feel that's almost late Philly – tight, sophisticated, and right on the ... CD
Give It Up
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy
Great later work from Pleasure – a group who are probably best-known for their classic 70s albums on Fantasy Records, but one who kept the groove riding high in some early 80s years at RCA! This set's a shimmering jewel – a great mix of funky rhythms and mellower moments, all wrapped ... CD
United Artists/Charly (UK), 1972. New Copy 2CD
A very cool set! This one comes in a hardcover book-like package – and not only includes the main record, but two full other records as well! Across 110th Street is one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks of the early 70's – not only for the great title cut by Bobby Womack, " ... CD
