In A Special Way

LP (Item 81607) Motown, 1983 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

A surprisingly great album from DeBarge – proof that the group really had something great at the start! Much as we'd like to dismiss DeBarge for their dated costumes and silly covers, the group still stands as one of the strongest pop acts from early 80s Motown – and have an undeniably catchy groove that still has appeal after all these years! Of course, part of the strength of this one is actually the mellower numbers – sung in a wonderfully sweet harmony mode that was instantly timeless. The best of these is "Stay With Me", sampled to great effect, and a tune elevates this album above all the rest – but there's plenty of other tasty numbers too, including "Time Will Reveal", "Need Somebody", "Be My Lady", "Love Me In A Special Way" and "Queen Of My Heart". (Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch, light stains, and a few creases.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Lil Suzy
Motown, 1982. Very Good
The title and cover may look a bit silly, but the album's a classic from this overlooked Motown act – a smoking batch of funky grooves that has a lot more edge than most of the other work going on at the label at the time!

Motown, 1980. Very Good+
While Motown was great at a lot of things, perhaps they were best at repackaging their catalog in a number of different ways.

Motown, 1966. Very Good
An early collection of singles from one of Motown's first standout vocal groups – the mighty mighty Marvelettes, one of those groups who put a rough edge on the female trio sound!

Joyous
Fantasy, 1977. Very Good
Joyous grooves indeed – the second album by this legendary 70s jazzy soul outfit – and a landmark album in the Fantasy Records Bay Area funk mode! The record will forever be remembered for the cut "Joyous" – a monster groover with a killer hook, strong funky playing, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Goin' For Myself
Sussex, 1972. Near Mint-
Classic funky groovers from Dennis Coffey – with his hard guitar sound gettin' all fuzzy over some loud drums and funky Sussex production! This one's still very much on the "Scorpio" vibe, when the label was keeping things nice and hard – and before Dennis got a bit hooked ... LP, Vinyl record album
