Zapp III

LP (Item 45623) Warner, 1983 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

Zapp's 3rd album, and one that shows them still very much on top of their game! The mix of tight bass, keyboards, and occasional vocoder bits is firmly in place from their first two albums – a stunning legacy of ensemble funk that pushes the older P-Funk ethos into hip new territory for the 80s! Roger and crew are superb throughout – fusing all rhythmic elements together beautifully, and electrifying the whole album with some great voice box vocals – almost making you feel like the instruments themselves are running the show! Titles include "We Need The Buck", "Spend My Whole Life", "I Can Make You Dance", "Do Wa Ditty (live)", "Play Some Blues", and "Heartbreaker (parts 1 & 2)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Controversy
Warner, 1981. Very Good
Classic Prince – an album that signaled an end to the first part of Prince's storied career, leaning heavily on his fascination with new wave, mixed with the r&b grooves and 70s funk of his earliest LPs. Prince is definitely in a transitional mode here, the easy politics of the punk era ... LP, Vinyl record album
King, 1970. Very Good-
Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album
