Save Me

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

A huge breakout moment for disco in the 70s – the first album from Silver Convention, a very early example of the European power on the club scene! The group's the brainchild of arranger Sylvester Levay and producer Michael Kunze – who come up with some great German disco rhythms for the record, mixed with soaring female trio vocals, by a group that includes two German gals and American soul singer Roberta Kelly! The vocal approach is similar to that 70s Philly group mode – popularized by First Choice, Three Degrees, and others – and pumped it up with the Munich sound of throbbing bass and heavy beats, which was arguably one of the first steps towards house music in the 80s. Titles include the huge hit "Fly Robin Fly", plus "Save Me", "I Like It", "Chains Of Love", "Tiger Baby", "Always Another Girl", and "Heart Of Stone".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sylvers
Pride, 1972. Very Good+
The first album by The Sylvers – a hard soulful band made up of youngsters from LA, but who had a lot more going on than some of the other kiddie-soul bands of the early 70s! The group's a sextet at this point, with four male voices and two female ones – coming across as a sweet blend ... LP, Vinyl record album

Darkness, Darkness
Blue Thumb, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Plenty of darkness here from Phil Upchurch – those great tones and notes he worked so well back in the 70s – all with that near-perfect quality that made him one of the most in-demand players of his day! The style here is a bit different than some of Phil's previous work in Chicago ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smoke Some Kill
Jive, 1988. Sealed
Not quite the classic of the first two albums, but still dope all the way through, with Code Money on the turntables. Includes the title track, "No More Rock N' Roll", "Mr. Big Dick", and "Signifying Rapper", an adaptation of the traditional Signifying Monkey. LP, Vinyl record album
