On Target

LP (Item 39707) RCA, 1983 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

Post-Philly, and the girls are working here with Fonzi Thornton and Robert Wright – who choose to start off the album with a silly bit of dialogue that has them talking to the singers from the production booth (possibly letting them know that Gamble & Huff are no longer in charge!) Here's a record that we dig a whole lot more than we remember – with a crisp, bright period production vibe that's kind of come full circle after all these years. The girls shoot for that popular 80s mode and they hit the mark – bullseye! Titles include "On Target", "I Can Make A Difference", "Curious", "I'm A Woman Here", "Knockin", and "2 Win U Back". This FTG edition has 3 bonus tracks: "2 Win U Back (12" Version)", "On Target (Instrumental)" and "On Target (12" Version)". (Includes printed inner sleeve. Cover has some light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Philadelphia International, 1981. Very Good+
Essential female Philly soul recorded by the Jones Girls, a group who came to Philly later than many of their big 70s acts, but who went onto become possibly the best female act who recorded with Gamble & Huff.

Best Of Sam Cooke
RCA, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A stone classic – not just from Sam Cooke, but in the genre of "best of" records too! The set's overflowing with classic singles from the legendary soul singers – almost the perfect record to start with if you've ever wanted to sample Sam's genius – that amazing voice, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Birth Day
RCA, 1972. Very Good+
Great early stuff by the New Birth – with a sound that's a lot funkier than some of their other records! The sound of the album shows how the band had a great formula for taking original tracks and covers, and redoing them with their unique group sound that gave them a good party feel. This ...

Smooth Talk
RCA, 1977. Very Good+
Wonderfully smooth soul from Evelyn Champagne King – one of her real standouts from the early days, and a tremendous collaboration with producer/arranger T Life! The sound here is upbeat and catchy, but never too poppy – done with a slight hint of that groove that King would hit more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miz Lena's Boy
RCA, 1973. Very Good+
Surprisingly nice work from Wilson Pickett – hard and a bit funky, with a sound that's almost stronger than his late work for Atlantic! The album was co-arranged with Brad Shapiro – who was one of the best southern soul talents of the time, and really brings out the best in Wilson's ... LP, Vinyl record album

You Fooled Me
RCA, 1978. Very Good
A great little debut album from the team of Len Ron Hanks and Zane Grey – songwriters who'd scored earlier in the 70s with tracks for Jerry Butler and LTD, but who also strike up a pretty strong groove on their own! The pair are from Chicago, but are recording in LA – and their sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

On Top Of Clear
RCA, 1976. Very Good+
One of their nice albums for RCA, with a sound that's a mix of ballads and up-tempo cuts, in the same style as a lot of other East Coast groups from the time. Van McCoy arranged and produced, and the LP includes their single "Hey, What's That Dance You're Doing", plus "Two Different ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eugene Record
Warner, 1977. Very Good
Eugene Record's best solo record, and the only one that does justice to the fabulous Chicago soul legacy that he left behind when he departed the Chi-Lites, and stopped working for Brunswick records. Eugene's vocals are right out front, and the arrangements are nice and sweet all the way through. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bumps & Bruises
Epic, 1977. Very Good
Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, ... LP, Vinyl record album
