Proof that the move to soul was actually a great thing for James Mtume – because although the set's miles from his spiritual jazz work of the 70s, it more than makes up for that shift with a sophisticated approach to 80s soul! The group's a small one, with lots of keyboards from Mtume, and a fair bit of bass at the bottom – and lead vocals are by James and Tawatha, who brings a nice sense of female sweetness to the set. The whole thing's got a very seductive slow jam electro feel, and includes standout jams like "You Are My Sunshine", "You, Me, & He", "Prime Time", "Sweet For You and Me", and "C.O.D. (I'll Deliver)", plus the intimate "Sweet For You And Me (Monogamy Mix)" and the jazz funk & old school hip hop hybrid "To Be Or Not To Bop That Is The Question (Whether We Funk Or Not)". This FTG CD edition includes 5 bonus tracks – rare alternate versions and 12" mixes – including extended vocal and instrumental mixes of "COD (I'll Deliver)" extended and dub mixes of "I Simply Like", plus "You, Me And He (Polygamy Mix)" and "You, Me And He (Instrumental Rap)".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Gregory Hines
Epic/Expansion (UK), 1988. New Copy
You may know Gregory Hines best as an actor and dancer – but he's also a surprisingly great soul singer, too – thanks to help here from Luther Vandross! Luther produced the set, wrote all the tunes, and also duets with Gregory on one track too – making the set a Vandross-stamped ... CD

A great set in the short run of classics that Carl Anderson cut for Columbia Records in the 1980s – albums that never cracked the charts that strongly at the time, but which have gone on to be remembered well over the years! On this record, Anderson nicely balances a tight groove with some ... CD

Atlantic/Real Gone, 1975. New Copy
The only full album ever recorded by the legendary Sam Dees – an artist who's probably best known for his songwriting skills on other records, but who really shines here as a lead star on his own! Dees' approach is wonderful – a bit rootsy, with some slight southern soul elements ... CD

A killer bit of southern soul from Gwen McCrae – one that's in the best tradition of Miami work of the time, but which also takes Gwen into even deeper territory vocally! The record's got a mature depth that we totally love – a quality that shows the key "adult" transitions ... CD

Princess/Shout (Japan), 1974. New Copy
Wonderful work from a group who are equally great on the funky tip, and on the mellow side of the spectrum – a small southern combo from the mid 70s, but one with a feel that's a lot more like some late 60s funky 45s! The funky cuts are almost all originals here – handled by Earl with ... CD
