Bionic Boogie

LP (Item 34863) Polydor, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 11

The first album by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie group – and a cooker of a set that follows strongly from Gregg's previous Hot Butterfly gem! Luther Vandross isn't on board this time around, but the overall groove is still totally great – upbeat, soaring, and put together with a jazzy undercurrent that really keeps things interesting – far more so than most other mainstream disco sets of the time! Brad Baker – of B Baker Chocolate Company – handled the arrangements – and the grooves spin out nicely from Diamond's keyboards, and a tight mix of strings and jazzy horns. Vocals are from the soulful trio of Gwen Guthrie, Ullanda McCullough, and Zachary Sanders – and titles include "Dance Little Dreamer", "Risky Changes", "Boogie Boo", "We Must Believe In Music", "Feel Like Dancing", and "Don't Lose The Number". (Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Royal Rappin's
Polydor/Spring, 1979. Very Good+
A surprisingly nice session – and some duets that shouldn't be as good as they are! Ike's not at his prime here, but he's still good enough to bring out the best in Millie – who puts away her (by this time) increasingly raunchy act, and hits more of a straight soul vibe to match Ike's ...

Soul Makossa
Mainstream, 1973. Very Good+
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that ... LP, Vinyl record album

20th Century, 1973. Very Good
Barry White's got plenty to give here – a massive classic from his legendary early 70s years – and the first record to feature the maestro on his own as a lead act! The set's a masterpiece through and through – a sublime mix of soaring strings, soulful rhythms, and some killer ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Magic
Atco, 1974. Sealed
The start of a tremendous run from Blue Magic – easily one of the greatest harmony groups of the 70s, a quintet we'd place in a rare class with heavy hitters like The Stylistics or The Moments! The album's smooth and sweet, but never slick – perfectly arranged by the great Norman ... LP, Vinyl record album

From A Whisper To A Scream
Kudu, 1971. Very Good
One of our favorite-ever albums from Esther Phillips – an album that really helped her transform her sound for the 70s! The approach here is a lot more jazzy than before – served up with a good dose of funk, thanks to arrangements from Pee Wee Ellis – fresh from his work with ... LP, Vinyl record album
