Some serious slammin from The Pointer Sisters – still going strong here, near the end of an amazing run of records done with producer Richard Perry! The late 80s vibe is definitely in place – as the beats are a lot more upfront than previously for the trio – a bumpin, thumping approach to the groove that really lives up to the title – and which serves to be a perfect way to emphasize the hook-heavy approach to soul that was always the Sisters' strongest suit. The album's filled with crossover gems – and titles include "Shut Up & Dance", "He Turned Me Out", "Flirtatious", "I'm In Love", "My Life (rmx)", "Pride", "I Will Be There", and "Moonlight Dancing". CD features 5 bonus tracks – including "Translation (rmx)", "I'm In Love (single)", "He Turned Me Out (ext radio)", "Be There (12" ext)", and "He Turned Me Out (ext dance mix)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Croydon Municipal (UK), Early 60s. New Copy
A bit soul, a bit pop, a bit vocal – and a wonderful batch of tunes pulled together in support of the "popcorn" sound of the Belgian scene! The popcorn groove is different than Northern Soul, but shares a similar love of old vinyl – in this case a compelling blend of songs ... CD

Seminal 80s groove from 70s Miami soul star Gwen McCrae – reinventing herself here for the new decade with a totally different sound! The album's best known for the amazing club track "Funky Sensation" – one of those tracks that crossed over big, and had a huge influence in ... CD

De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy
Kool & The Gang sounding super-tight, but mighty right as well – a groove that still has all the great jazz elements of their mid 70s records, but which also has them picking up the bassy bottom a bit more too! The sound is not nearly as slick as their 80s hits – and instead still ... CD

Arista/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
A killer bit of modern soul – one of the standout classics from the best years of Arista! Richard Evans produced and arranged this excellent set of smooth soul grooves for Linda Williams. Linda plays keyboards and sings, and the album was recorded in 2 different sessions – one in LA, ... CD

Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1984. New Copy
The Temptations' former lead singer's first solo record with a huge 80s groove album, especially considering the mighty title track – the duet with Siedah Garrett and it's sly reggae influenced bassline and crisp popping beat. This is one of those records we appreciate a lot more with the ... CD

Joneses
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
A killer for the Joneses – probably their strongest album all the way through, thanks to some great production and arrangements by Bobby Eli! This one's got the group taking the fragile harmony style of their earlier records, and filtering it through the Philly powerhouse groove to create a ... CD

United Artists/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy
Soaring grooves and mellow moments – a perfect blend of 70s soul styles, summed up here beautifully by Enchantment! The album's one of the group's greatest – and certainly one that's been very well-remembered around these parts – thanks to some rock-solid arrangements from Johnny ... CD

Gold Mind/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy
Loleatta Holloway's emerging here as the queen of the disco – trading the southern soul of her early years for a more full-on club groove! Given the strength of her vocals, the approach works great – and if anything, the setting really helps Loleatta find an even better space than ... CD

Force (with bonus tracks)
De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1977. New Copy
Kool & The Gang's a little bit slicker and a little bit smoother on The Force than on earlier classic records – but thankfully, they're still getting on down to the funky sounds! The Force does indeed have more of a spacey boogie than a jungle boogie vibe, but they're still doing what we ... CD

Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy
A beautiful album from Jon Lucien – one that's been far too neglected over the years! This was Lucien's second album for Columbia – and it's a wonderfully strong effort that fuses together jazz, soul, and Brazilian styles, in a manner that recalls some of his best work for RCA – ... CD

Coming Back For More
Mercury/Solaris, 1977. New Copy
A really wonderful post-Stax album from the great William Bell – a set that has the singer still stepping out with all those great deep soul modes from the 60s, but also finding a hipper, more laidback approach as well! There's a beautiful mellow vibe to the record – one that recalls ... CD
