Teena Marie steps out strongly on her own – really knocking it out of the park on this initial album for CBS – entirely written, arranged, and produced by Lady T! The grooves are as funky as before, but possibly have a leaner quality overall – a tighter 80s groove approach to the music, yet always with the fully fleshed-out soul that we love in Teena's handling of the vocals. Basslines are mighty nice –more than enough to hook us in on just about every tune – but the ballads are pretty sweet, too! Titles include "Robbery", "Playboy", "Ask Your Momma", "Dear Lover", "Stop The World", "Midnight Magnet", and "Cassanova Brown". CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Playboy (US 12" rmx)", "Fix It (US 12" rmx)", "Fix It (US 12" rmx inst)", and "Midnight Magic (US 12" inst)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A pair of A&M classics from the mighty Seawind! First up is Light The Light – a great step forward for Seawind – as the combo's working here in a style that's a bit leaner than before, but still every bit as warm and jazzy – a perfect foil for the soulful vocals of singer ... CD

ABC/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
A wonderful duet set from Ike Hayes and Dionne Warwick – one that draws on the classiest side of the Hayes spectrum, and uses his groove to help Dionne find some great new energy! Even in performance, the music has that great rich quality that Isaac always brought to his solo recordings in ... CD

Wonderful work from Dionne Warwick's lesser-known sister – a hell of a great singer, and one who packs even more punch than her famous sibling! The gem of a set has all the poise and class of Dionne, but comes across with a lot more soul as well – a great mix that's very much in the ... CD
