Hard to see how these nighttime folks get any lovin done – give that the grooves in the series are always so great, we're bound to spend the whole evening on the dancefloor! This smoking 17th entry (!) in the collection is every bit as grooving as the rest – heavy on the kind of 80s soul that still sounds pretty darn fresh today – cuts that never got the right sort of chance back in the day, and which are finally being rediscovered and given new life in the 21st Century! Rhythms are heavy on keyboards and beats – with a fair bit of bassy bits too – and titles include "Sweat" by Brick, "Lovequake" by Bobby King, "Just Begun To Love You" by Renee Aldrich, "Cry Like A Wolf" by RJ's Latest Arrival, "Give Me" by I Level, "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie" by Intrique, "This Time" by Funk Deluxe, "Hot Girl" by Private Eye, and "Let's Change It Up" by Inner Life.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
