Glow

LP (Item 374358) Gordy, 1985 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

Rick James hits a smoother sort of style here – one that's almost a compressed take on the mainstream version of funk first crafted on his earlier records, fused into a more radio-friendly approach for the Prince generation! The sound's actually not that bad – and the record has an appeal (albeit a dated one) as a relic of crossover soul from a time that's fading more and more from the collective memory. Rick's still writing, arranging, and producing the whole set – and titles include "Glow", "Melody Make Me Dance", "Can't Stop", "Spend The Night With Me", "Somebody", "Moon Child", "Sha La La La La", and "Rock & Roll Control". (Cover has a few creases.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Street Songs
Gordy, 1981. Very Good+
One of the all-time great Rick James albums – a return to funkier sounds for Rick that worked both artistically and commercially – and actually got over far better than his more blatant attempts at crossover material on other records!

Wish It Would Rain
Gordy, 1968. Very Good
An excellent album by the Temps – one that shows the group digging a bit deeper for a harder soul sound, working in a mode that would soon explode into the heavier numbers that would transform their sound completely.

25 Miles
Gordy, 1969. Very Good
Socking soul, and a key album in the career of Detroit powerhouse Edwin Starr – one that had him stepping forth with a proud, loud groove all the way through! Starr's work was always a bit harder than the regular Motown bag – no doubts because of his more indie soul roots – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Funk Inc
Prestige, 1971. Very Good
A killer instrumental album of hard organ grooves and funky basslines! This was the album that broke Funk Inc out of their Indianapolis scene, and made them a force to be forever reckoned with in the history of funky jazz. The album grooves hard in the same sound as some of the classic work by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brass Construction
United Artists, 1975. Very Good
A classic set that goes "slam" from the very first note – and which helped to set the pace for countless ensemble funk acts to come! Brass Construction had a wonderful sound that was the best-realized version of the east coast indie club combos of the mid 70s – funky at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Magic
Dash/TK, 1977. Very Good+
Plenty of Magic here from T-Connection – a clubby set of tracks, yet one that's still put together more like a funk combo record from the mid 70s! The instrumentation is mindblowing – impeccable guitar and basslines, set to snapping rhythms that really capture the best Miami funk mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
