An oft-overlooked gem from Parliament – released during the year 1976, and sometimes hidden between monster LPs like Funkentelechy and Mothership Connection – but every bit as great as those two classics! The album's got that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at the time – still with all the fuzzy haired elements of earlier years, but presented with a bit more focus – and a powerhouse swing that really drives the tracks home with a funky groove on the bottom! There's a flowing sort of energy here that almost makes you think that the whole thing just emerged naturally from the brain of George Clinton – but all ensemble players have a strong hand in the action, and really get some great moments in on the set. Cuts include "Gamin' On Ya", "Do That Stuff", "Children Of Production", and "I've Been Watching You (Move Your Sexy Body)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Al Jarreau pays tribute to the great George Duke – on a set that's got the same sort of collaborative vibe as some of Duke's classics from the 70s and 80s! Al's lead vocals are superb – and they're given some great jazzy touches with production by Stanley Clarke, Boney James, Marcus ... CD

Maybe the greatest album that Teena Marie ever cut – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of the lady's work for Motown! The set's got this bright, positive bounce that grabs you right from the start – but also moves into a depth that's way different than other funk albums of ... CD

A sweet club classic from the soulful Parlet trio – one of the best George Clinton side projects during his legendary late 70s run – and a group who've continued to move plenty of dancefloors over the decades! There's a funky energy at the core that really sets Parlet apart from other ... CD

Sweet soul with a nice disco groove – by a singer who was brought to light during the Bee Gees' big disco years of the 70s! Teri's got a wonderful approach here – almost earlier female pop, but with a soulful range too – one that's really brought out by the arrangements, which ... CD

Casablanca/Real Gone, 1978. New Copy
The pleasure principle is in full effect here – a really special sort of feeling that strongly shows off the female side of the Parliament/Funkadelic mothership! The album's got a groove that's way different than most female disco of the time – more offbeat and angular, thanks to funky ... CD

Casablanca/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Sweet Canadian club from Alma Faye – a record that shows that the scene up north was just as great for disco as the one down in New York! The record's got these flowing arrangements from Lee Gagnon – an artist who was working in jazz a few years before, but manages to find just the ... CD

Casablanca/Culture Factory (France), 1977. New Copy
Sweet grooves from Donna Summer – who was still a rising star at this point in the 70s! The title is an honest one – for an album with songs that look back at 60s and earlier 70s soul songcraft – and even earlier than that – mostly via the groovy backup vocals. So, Ms. ... CD

Two killers from Randy Brown – sublime 70s soul, back to back on a single CD! Welcome To My Room is a mellow soul masterpiece from Randy Brown – a crucially-overlooked talent from the late 70s, working here with a totally put-together vibe! The album's got the mature, mellow feel of ... CD

Casablanca/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy
A classic bit of club from Lipps Inc – an album that's got the group nicely stretched-out and extended – taking them way past the simpler sounds you might know from their hit single work! Tracks here are all quite long, and feature lots of instrumental workouts over very tight rhythms ... CD

Blaster/Shout (Japan), 1981. New Copy
The only full album we've ever seen from Tony Fox – a singer we know best for much earlier singles, including a few classics in a real deep soul vein! This album, though, has more of a club-oriented sound – an early 80s indie vibe, with lots of modern soul arrangements which work very ... CD
