Well, it's HIS story, actually – a bit overblown in concept, and probably execution – but a record that's got some nice nuggets underneath, if you know where to look. The first half is the backstory – gems from Michael's earlier years on Epic – including "Remember The Time", "The Girl Is Mine", "Bad", "Rock With You", "The Way You Make Me Feel", "She's Out Of My Life", "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough", and "Wanna Be Startin Something". The second half is "HIStory Continues" – newer material that might have made a decent album on its own, but which probably pales slightly in comparison with the classics. Tracks include the "Scream" duet with Janet – plus "You Are Not Alone", "Childhood", "2 Bad", "Tabloid Junkie", "This Time Around", "Come Together", and "They Don't Care About Us".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Legacy/Epic, Late 70s. Used
Killer late 70s soul by this Brit-based group that featured the keyboard talents of Rod Temperton! Despite their non-American origin, the band scored big on the US charts with familiar soul tunes like "Boogie Nights", "Always & Forever", "Ain't No Half Steppin", ... CD

I Really Want You
Epic/FTG, 1985. Used
A damn great bit of 80s soul – the only album ever issued by Smoke City, but a killer set that we've loved for many years – especially given the group's link to the Chicago scene! The set's perfectly put together – head and shoulders above so much other major label soul of the ... CD

Closer
Epic/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. Used
An overlooked set from Melba Moore – an Epic session from the start of the 80s, and one that's served up with a nicely understated groove! There's a bit of disco in the mix, but the sound's never too far over the top – and in a way, Melba's working in the same sophisticated territory ... CD

From The Mind Of Lil Louis
Epic, 1989. Used
A classic bit of Chicago house goes mainstream – and a suprisingly big hit from the late 80s. The main reason most folks bought this album was for Louis' "French Kiss", a sex-sound infused house cut with a "fast-then-slow-then-fast" groove that was endlessly dropped into ... CD

Epic (Brazil), 1987. Used
Seminal work from the lovely Basia – and an album that's a wonderful hybrid of jazz, soul, and pop – all put together at a level that really goes beyond most of her contemporaries! There's a vibe here that's almost like Swing Out Sister at their best – catchy, but never cloying ... CD

Best Of Gil Scott-Heron
Arista, 1984. Used
A nice best-of collection of Gil's work on Arista – issued in the 80s, with Gil looking terrible in a "Members Only" kind of way on the cover, and with the extra new track "Re-Ron", an electro track about Ronald Reagan! Still, there's more than enough nice moments – ... CD

MCA/FTG, 1986. Used
The nearly-lost debut album from Janice McClain – a singer who probably burned brightest in the mainstream with her late 70s single "Smack Dab In The Middle", but who really stands out here as a much more mature artist overall! There's definitely a few groovers on the record, but ... CD

Face To Face (plus bonus tracks)
RCA/FTG, 1983. Used
Evelyn Champagne King will always be most popularly remembered for her massive disco pop crossover hits of the late 70s, but she progressed really nicely throughout the 80s, keeping up with the evolving dancefloor soul sounds of the times – and Face To Face is a lean, clubby electro soul and ...
