A peach of a record from Melba Moore – one that's produced by Eugene McDaniels, who helps find a tight funky sound that unlocks some of the most righteous elements in Moore's vocals! Like some of McDaniels' best productions of the time, there's a good sense of balance here – a way of going deep, then swinging back for a nice hook – ensuring that the record would reach just the right audience, while still helping get the message across! Gary King did all the arrangements, with a righteous soul style that works perfectly with Melba's vocals – and the set's got some great keyboards from Bob James, Richard Tee, and Dave Grusin – all of whom keep things hip. Titles include "If You Can Believe", "My Soul Is Satisfied", "Must Be Dues", "I Am His Lady", "A Million Years Before This Time", "If I Lose", and "Natural Part of Everything".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Epic/FTG, 1980. New Copy
An overlooked set from Melba Moore – an Epic session from the start of the 80s, and one that's served up with a nicely understated groove! There's a bit of disco in the mix, but the sound's never too far over the top – and in a way, Melba's working in the same sophisticated territory ... CD

Classic 80s soul from Johnny Kemp – a sweet-voiced singer who steps out beautifully on this Columbia debut! Johnny's got a sound that's somewhat informed by some of the crossover soul of a few years back – but although his music is commercial, it's still got plenty going on at the ... CD
Buddah/FTG, 1975. New Copy
A brilliant mix of soul and jazz from the legendary Norman Connors – a key album in breaking Norman out back in the 70s – and a record that's still pretty darn perfect all these many years later! You can hear Connors' deep roots throughout the set – but they're often used towards ... CD
Buddah/FTG, 1976. New Copy
A warmly romantic journey from the stellar Norman Connors – but a set that's also got a fair bit of spiritual jazz undercurrents too! Norman's at that perfect Starship point in his career – giving equal space to the vocals and instrumental passages on the record – at a level that ... CD
Too Sharp (with bonus tracks)
Columbia/FTG, 1985. New Copy
A nearly-lost relic of 80s groove – and a sharp little side project from Rick James! Process and group are clearly going for a sound to rival the Time on this set – working as a well-costumed group ensemble with a bass-heavy funky groove at the bottom of every track – and their ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1985. New Copy
A great set in the short run of classics that Carl Anderson cut for Columbia Records in the 1980s – albums that never cracked the charts that strongly at the time, but which have gone on to be remembered well over the years! On this record, Anderson nicely balances a tight groove with some ... CD
Warner/Edsel (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2 CDs
Two early gems from Randy Crawford – back to back in a single set! Everything Must Change is the sublime first album from Randy Crawford – a set that's got a very strong jazzy vibe throughout – and which really shows the great place from which Randy started! There's a careful ... CD
Raw Silk/Now We May Begin
Warner/Edsel (UK), 1979/1980. New Copy 2 CDs
Two early classics from the great Randy Crawford! Raw Silk is a really wonderful little album from Randy – a lot jazzier than previous work, and done in a style that has Randy's vocals backed by small electric combo work on most cuts! Players on the set are a great batch of top-shelf fusion ... CD
