Always-great work from Tavares – one of those groups who never seemed to miss, and who seemed to weather the disco era a lot better than most of their contemporaries! This 1980 album is key proof of that fact – a tremendous little set, done at a point when Tavares could have rested on their hits – yet they kept on getting better and better – really soaring here with impeccable vocals, and tightening things up into a mode that's not exactly 80s groove, but which sure isn't disco either! Harmonies are great – and titles include "Love Uprising", "Break Down For Love", "Only One I Need To Love", "Don't Wanna Say Goodnight", "She Can Wait Forever", "Do You Believe In Love", and "Life Time Of Love". CD features the bonus track "Love Uprising (7" single version)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Capitol (Japan), 1973. New Copy
One of Tavares' earliest albums – and a sweet modern group soul record produced by Johnny Bristol – one that hinted at the promise of greater soul that Capitol Records would deliver later in the decade! Tavares have a warmly sweeping sound that's a nice change from some of their ... CD

Love Storm
Capitol/PTG (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy
A definite love storm from Tavares – a set that has the group's vocal approach honed to perfection – really soaring high with some sweet clubby arrangements from Freddie Perren! The album came at a time when the group was riding high on mainstream disco fame – but it's hardly a ... CD

Big Break (UK), 1984. New Copy
Although Phyllis Nelson is maybe best known to American audiences as a dancefloor artist, she really scored big overseas with this mid 80s album – a set that has Phyllis really reaching out to a much wider range of styles! The record's got a lean, clean style that puts plenty of focus on ... CD

Epic/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy
Great early work from Billy Ocean – a smooth album of understated groovers, all done in a style that's nicely retrained, and which places a good focus on Billy's great vocals! Most of the record skips along in a warm mellow groove – never too over the top, and in a way that makes us ... CD

High Rise (with bonus tracks)
Capitol/Big Break (UK), 1983. New Copy
Always-great work from the team of Ashford & Simpson – the kind of a record that has them at the top of their game, even though they'd changed their overall sound over the years! The vibe here is more in an 80s groove mode than some of the duo's Warner albums, but they've still got an ... CD

Mercury/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy
Perhaps the ultimate album for The Gap Band – and sure, it was a hit, but the record still sounds great today, and the constant sampling of some of the record has kept it fresh in the crates for years and years. The band have lost the heavier funk sound of earlier years, and working in a ... CD

Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1979/1980. New Copy
Pure greatness from Johnnie Taylor – two Columbia Records releases back to back on a single CD! First up is She's Killing Me, an obscure 7 track EP from Johnnie Taylor – almost a 12" single, but with more than enough going on to make us think of it as a full album! Johnnie's in ... CD

Thelma & Jerry/Two To One (with bonus track)
Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy
Both of Thelma Houston & Jerry Butler's duo records for Motown – back-to-back in a single set! 1977's Thelma & Jerry is up first – and it's a truly sweet pairing of the 2 legendary voices – tempering the more crossover disco mode that Thelma was working so strongly in ... CD

Capitol/FTG, 1982. New Copy
An early 80s classic from Melba Moore – best known for one of her biggest hits, "Love's Comin' At Ya", an enduring number that's got an irresistible groove! Like many of Melba's other albums, this one does a wonderful job of delivering radio-friendly pop soul and still hitting us ... CD

Capitol/FTG, 1981. New Copy
An early 80s set from Melba Moore – with some bubbling club soul grooves carried over from the 70s, plus spacier and funkier touches – largely produced by McFadden & Whitehead and featuring Kashif on moog bass! Given the production style here and the release date, we get the ... CD

Blam (with bonus track)
A&M/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978. New Copy
Blam is right – an all-out batch of funky tracks from The Brothers Johnson – captured here right in the middle of their classic period with Quincy Jones! The Q's at the helm on production for the set, and the record's a great extension of their earlier efforts with the man – but ... CD

ABC/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977. New Copy
A killer set from Lenny Williams – done in a smoothly jazzy mode that echoes with a real Fantasy Records groove! Lenny's clearly drawing some great inspiration here from the East Bay scene – working with older Motown producer Frank Wilson on a set of warmly modern numbers that really ... CD
