A classic set that goes "slam" from the very first note – and which helped to set the pace for countless ensemble funk acts to come! Brass Construction had a wonderful sound that was the best-realized version of the east coast indie club combos of the mid 70s – funky at the bottom, but polished at the top, in a style that was equally appreciated by fans of disco and more classic funky soul! The "brass" in their title was certainly strongly supported – as the group used a brace of horns on the top of the mix, smoothly gliding over the choppier rhythms at the bottom. And while there's certainly some vocals on the set, they often take second stage to the tight instrumentation of the group! The set includes the classic "Movin" – virtually a blueprint for mainstream funk at the time – plus the tracks "Changin", "Love", "Talkin", "Dance", and "Peekin".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Brass Construction II
United Artists, 1976. Near Mint-
The second album from Brass Construction – heavy horns, basslines, and stellar dancefloor grooves – a stone classic! The first one was totally great, but they cast a wider stylistic claim on II – their trademark funky sound is still very firmly in place, but they bring more to ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1975. Very Good+
One of the biggest albums in War's career! The record includes the classic cut "Low Rider" – a hard-rolling Chicano funk number that's probably been their biggest legacy to day – plus the mellow reggae-tinged title cut, a huge AM radio hit back in the day. Other tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1976. Very Good
The title track to this one – "Right Back Where We Started From – was a real 70s monster, hitting big on AM radio and the dancefloors, and still kind of a guilty pleasure for us these days. The rest of the record's a bit spotty – but there's a few nice moments, like Maxine's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Feel It
United Artists, 1979. Very Good+
Great work from Noel Pointer – one of the leading lights in the United Artists soul spectrum at the end of the 70s! As with other Pointer sets from the time, there's a pretty strong fusion undercurrent here – a groove that's built up from Noel's own work on electric violin, plus some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Groovy Kind of Love
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
Groovy little album of pop soul recorded for Capitol, with arrangements by Sid Feller and Mike Melvoin! We're not sure what the single is here, but this has the same feel as some of the Patti Drew LPs, in which there's a few lesser known cuts, and then a bunch of pop covers. Titles include "W ...

A great set of Stevie's best tracks for Motown! 3 LPs deep, with 40 tracks in all, mostly from the late 60s, with a handful of numbers from the early 70s, including a few goodies that are getting tougher to find on wax. Includes "Hey Love", "Angie Girl", "Yester-Me, ... LP, Vinyl record album
