4.80 11

The only full length record we've ever seen from singer Suzi Lane – and a catchy batch of late 70s disco produced by Giorgio Moroder, but also featuring arrangements by Harold Faltermeyer – in a tuneful, hook-styled mode that's as sweet as can be! Suzi's vocals are the seductive and soulful icing on this Moroder-produced treat – and overall, it's a nice mix of dancefloor soul and some of the more futuristic funky synth sounds Giorgio would carry on into the 80s. Suzi's vocals keep it grounded in soul, though – as do some occasional strings and brass. Nice! Titles include "Morning Noon & Night", "Free Me", "Harmony", "No One Home In The City", "Givin It Up", and "Ooh La La". CD bonus tracks include 12" versions "Harmony" and Ooh La, La", plus a 7" version of "Harmony".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The standout set from Amanda Lear – a model turned singer, and one of the more striking crossover divas of the disco era! Lear's got previous ties to Salvador Dali and David Bowie, but she keeps things relatively straight ahead on this debut album – using accented vocals that recall an ... CD
Warner/Gold Legion, 1979. New Copy
Madleen Kane's still sexy as hell on the cover – and still serving up her trademark sensuous brand of disco – which made her as big on the dancefloors as she was between the pages of Playboy at the time! Thor Baldursson handles the grooves here – with that great compressed style ... CD
Atlantic/Gold Legion, 1984. New Copy
Laura Branigan gets some help here on arrangements from Harold Faltermeyer – who makes things a bit funkier than you might expect – although still very much in the kind of poppy style he used famously on some big 80s soundtracks! The mode works well for Laura – whose approach is ... CD
Virgin/Gold Legion, 1985. New Copy
The overlooked collaboration between Human League singer Philip Oakey and producer Giorgio Moroder! The duo initially worked together on the outstanding "Together In Electric Dreams" single – a surprise hit from Moroder's soundtrack for a forgettable movie – and given The ... CD

Elektra (Japan), 1970. New Copy

Elektra/Real Gone, 1991. New Copy
Nothing super-intense, but a great solo moment from Lisa Fischer – a vocalist who'd previously worked with Luther Vandross and The Rolling Stones, and who steps out on her own in this classic early 90s set! The music's got a bouncy approach to soul that reflects Lisa's professional roots ... CD
Elektra/FTG, 1981. New Copy
A great little soul set from Wanda Walden – and probably one of the best things to come from the Narada Michael Walden camp in the early 80s! Narada produced and arranged, but the record's got a deeper feel than any of his own work of the time – a more soulful quality that's smooth, ... CD
Best Of Friends
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy
Jazzy soul all the way through – and a great little album from Lenny White and the Twennynine combo – a group that features some especially great keyboards from the great Don Blackman! The style here's a bit like some of Blackman's own work – rooted in fusion, but focused towards ... CD
Paradise
Elektra (Japan), 1982. New Copy
Amazing work from Chicago soul legend Leroy Hutson – a rare session for Elektra, issued after his classic 70s sides on Curtom! The album's one of a few modern soul gems issued by Elektra at a time when they were one of the leading lights in soul – and like the Leon Ware albums from the ... CD
Philadelphia International/Edsel (UK), 1983/1984. New Copy
Later O'Jays from Philly International – 2 albums back to back on one CD! When Will I See You Again is the kind of record that shows that the group never lost their touch! The set sparkles beautifully from the very first note – and the trio hit a warm, smooth groove that's a perfect ... CD
