LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

An unusual group – but a nice little record! New York City Band are less of a group on their own, than a combo pulled together for this album – an ersatz soundtrack to the film Sunnyside, a disco-era production starring John Travolta's younger brother Joey! The group's mostly directed and organized by keyboardist Harold Wheeler, who gives their work a smooth groove that's pretty nice on the best cuts – a bit disco-fied, but also with some jazz funk touches – and still pretty strong thanks to vocal contributions from Luther Vandross, Lani Groves, and others. Titles include "Loving You", "Got To Have Your Body", "Ride That Wave", "New York City Band", "Sometimes", and "Sunnyside". (Cover has a promo stamp & some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Joy & Pain
Capitol, 1980. Very Good
Classic modern soul from the legendary Frankie Beverly! The record's perhaps one of their best remembered – most likely for the killer cut "Joy & Pain", which has a great hook that's been sampled many times over the years. The record also features the wonderful "Southern ... LP, Vinyl record album
