4.50 11

Kind of a silly name for a group – but the record's pretty nice! Elbow Bones & The Racketeers were one of the many retro-soul groups working under the guidance of producer August Darnell – aka Kid Creole – who gave the group a style that was similar to his own unique blend of 80s club grooves, 40s swing, and 30s gangster cliches! Vocals are by Gichy Dan, Stephanie Fuller, and Dutch Robinson – and the set's unified by Darnell's good ear for a catchy hook – those quirky, groovy little numbers that always made the Kid Creole and Dr Buzzard albums so great! Titles include "A Night In New York", "Other Guys", "Our Love Will Always Stand", "You Got Me High", and "I Call It Like I See It". CD features a huge amount of bonus tracks – 7 more numbers that include "Night In New York (12" ext)", "Happy Birthday Baby (12" ext)", "Happy Times (12" ext)", "I Wanna Remind You", "Night In New York (single)", and "Happy Birthday Baby (single)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Gordy/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy
A seminal bit of seventies soul from Switch, and a record that really helped set the tone for countless others to come in the 80s – no surprise, given that the group's got members from both the DeBarge and Ingram families! There's a warmth here that few others can match – an earnest, ... CD

RCA/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1973. New Copy
An early classic from LaBelle – wonderful vocals mixed with both heavy funk and laidback spacey soul touches! The group had really hit their stride by this point – as the trio of Nona Hendryx/Sarah Dash/Patti Labelle push way past their girl group roots – and even some of the ... CD

Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978. New Copy
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... CD

RCA/Big Break (UK), 1970. New Copy
The beginning of an amazing run on RCA for vocalist Jon Lucien – working here in a sublime blend of styles that's way beyond simple soul or standard jazz! Lucien's got a sound that's unlike anything we can think of – apart from the countless imitators who've tried for his style in ... 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

Philly World/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy
Early 80s funky soul from Search – a tight little group with a wickedly sharp edge! The combo is led by Les Paul Roque, fresh from his stint with Kool & The Gang – and the vibe here is similar to that group, but with a smaller combo approach overall – lots of bass at the ... CD

Private Stock/Hot Shot (UK), 1976. New Copy
A huge crossover album of the 70s – one that took an east coast disco groove, and introduced influences from a wide variety of classical themes – best summed up in the title hit "A Fifth Of Beethoven", which was a surprisingly successful radio tune at the time! The effort's a ... CD

EMI/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1992. New Copy
A pretty sweet batch of early 90s R&B from Benet – which is the brother and sister duo of Eric and Lisa Benet – a couple years before Eric would conquer the charts as a solo act! It's a nice little record that's warm and good-natured, and produced with a bright and smooth, but not ... CD

New York Music Company/Hot Shot (UK), 1984. New Copy
Catchy crossover soul from Sheryl Lee Ralph – a singer who'd graced the same Dreamgirls stage as part of the original trio with Jennifer Holliday – stepping out on her own in this debut solo set! The record features production and arrangements from Trevor Lawrence, who'd worked ... CD

Govinda/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1978. New Copy
A deeply spiritual group at the core – so much so that the songs here are all guided towards the aims of Krishna – but one who works with the best sort of jazzy soul styles of the late 70s! The album's become a surprising modern soul classic over the years – a record that was ... CD

Midnight Dancer
Whitfield/Real Gone, 1979. New Copy
A sweet mix of clubby tracks and mellower moments from Willie Hutch – and an overlooked gem from his late 70s years on Whitfield Records! The set's got Willie definitely digging some of the disco styles of the time, but in a way that's never sellout at all – as his vocals and guitar ... CD

In Tune
Whitfield/Real Gone, 1978. New Copy
Sublime sounds from Willie Hutch – a post-Motown album made for Whitfield Records – and a set that's got a wonderfully laidback, mellow funk groove! Gene Page handled the arrangements – and the sound here is more easygoing than some of Willie's funkier work – but in a great ... CD
