Musique II

LP (Item 2232) Prelude, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

A strong second set from Musique – finally getting a chance to appear on their own albums, after the horror of the cover of their first one! The group's lost Jocelyn Brown by this time – but singers Denise Edwards, Mary Seymour, and Gina Taylor more than do a great job of holding onto the groove – and with added help from Patrick Adams, who helped make their first album so great, the tunes soar along at a level that's right up there with the best of the Prelude disco scene! The tracks are long, with lots of nice Adams touches, and the titles include "Glide", "Number One", and "Love Massage". (Cover has cut corners & some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Prelude, 1982. Very Good
One of the most enduring albums on the Prelude label, and a great bit of modern soul by James "D-Train" Williams. Hubert Eaves produced the album, and he added lots of tasty electro keyboards to the set, played with his usual jazzy touches and a nice flourish that gives Williams' voice a ...

Secret Weapon
Prelude, 1983. Very Good+
Not the biggest name in 80s club, but a very groovy group that cut some massive singles for the Prelude label – featured here in their rare full length LP! Secret Weapon have a great way with a groove – tight, but never commercial – bumping along with a bit of jazz in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Yes, We're Ready
Prelude, 1983. Very Good
Pretty great stuff from Unlimited Touch – grooving here in a sound that's got a bit more of an 80s feel than their previous album, but which still works well for their dual-female vocal lead style. There's a bit of an electro "wheeet" in some of the tracks, but the vocals and the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prelude, 1978. Sealed
A great bit of Prelude disco from Lorraine Johnson – a pretty soulful singer, but offered here with an unfortunate cover that has a silly looking white woman "learning to dance all over again" on the cover. (And in fact, it took us so long to get over that cover, that for years, we ... LP, Vinyl record album

On The Street In Watts
ALA, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
A chilling statement from the west coast scene of the 70s – the first album from The Watts Prophets, the ultra-powerful group who emerged from the LA turmoil of the 60s. Like the Last Poets, the group blends together righteous spoken word passages and some spare rhythms and a touch of jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mankind, 1976. Very Good Gatefold
A great little record – from a really wild soul group! Nazty clearly had a heck of a good time making this record – and bring a lot more joy to the proceedings than you'll hear from most other soul groups of the early 70s! Tracks are often in an ensemble funk mode, plus vocals – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donny Hathaway Live
Atco, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rare Gems Odyssey
Casablanca, Late 70s. Very Good+
Nice lost funk LP released by Casablanca at the end of the 70's. We don't know much about this group, but we've always loved the track "What Is Funk", which has a tight funky backing, and a sort of call and response vocal about how messed up life can be. Other cuts include "Psychic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beat Goes On
Brunswick, Late 60s. Very Good+
Great stuff by the Young Holt combo – and one of their rarest albums too! The original trio is augmented by some larger arrangements on the set – Sonny Sanders at the baton, giving the combo a nice Brunswick Records bounce, but still keeping the warm and soulful grooves firmly intact. ...

Warner, 1981. Near Mint-
Wonderful stuff – and despite what you might think about her work with Rufus, we've always felt that Chaka Khan was equally good, if not better, during the early years of her solo career. This album's a totally solid soul effort, with production by Arif Mardin that's right up there with his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Got To Find A Way
Curtom, 1974. Very Good+
A great album that's often overlooked amidst the flurry of early 70's releases on Curtom, but which stands as one of Mayfield's greatest from the 70s! In fact, we'd say that the album's one that we enjoy putting on more than most – because the songs are less familiar, and not nearly as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Long As You Love Me
Enterprise, 1974. Very Good+
An overlooked gem on Stax Records – one of the only records ever cut by Bettye Crutcher – also a songwriter with the label, but a hell of a singer on her own! Bettye's got a style here that's very unique – still in a Stax mode, but a bit more sophisticated too – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
