Out Of Stock

CD


4.90 11

Rare work from the Circle City Band – the first-ever full length album from the group – and a set that brings together their few club singles and a host of previously unreleased tracks! The CCB are well remembered for the roller skating jam "Magic" – and the rest of this set is equally great – with lots of bouncing basslines, snapping beats, and warmly soulful grooves that really sparkle with lots of early 80s funky touches – from the sweet keyboards over the top right down to the crackling rhythms on the bottom! The package is a great discovery – one of those moments when you realize there's a lot more to a group than you'd ever heard before – and the album's way more than a reissue, given the treasure trove of previously unheard 80s grooves in the set! Titles include "Love", "Time Tunnel", "Hello Stranger", "Magic", "Gladiators", "My Place", "Party Lights", "Lonely", and "Hold On".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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

Harmless (UK), 1985. New Copy
A lost 80s album from Barbara Pennington – a singer we normally associate more with the disco generation, but who's still very strong here on a Record Shack session with Ian Levine! The style is still clubby, but slows things down a bit more from the disco years – a snapping 80s vibe ... CD
