Fela & Egypt 80Live In Amsterdam ... CD
Barclay/Universal, 1984. Used ... $7.99
An excellent live set from Fela – one that shows that he was still very capable of going over the top during the 80s! The material was recorded in 1983 in Amsterdam, live before a very enthusiastic crowd – one that really drives Fela and the group on their instrumental solos and funky grooves. The set features 4 great numbers by the group, with Fela on soprano sax, piano, and organ, and plenty of other great work on tenor, alto, and trumpet. Titles include "Gimme Shit I Give You Shit", "Custom Check Point", and "Movement Of The People/Political Statement Number 1", which runs for nearly 40 minutes! (Global Grooves, Soul) CD

✨✧ Michael JacksonDangerous ... CD
Epic, 1991. Used ... $1.99
One of those records that we remember dismissing at the time – but honestly, it really lives up to repeated listenings in later years! Sure, Michael Jackson's no longer working with Quincy Jones – and instead goes for Teddy Riley and some other (then) contemporary producers – but that all makes for a very solid 90s crossover vibe – perfect for radio play a the time, not to mention heavy video rotation too – and definitely still another jewel in the crown of the King of Pop! Titles include "Remember The Time", "Why You Wanna Trip On Me", "In The Closet", "Jam", "Dangerous", "Gone Too Soon", "Will You Be There", "Black Or White", "She Drives Me Wild", and "Can't Let Her Get Away".

Kid Creole & The CoconutsDoppelganger ... CD
Sire/Wounded Bird, 1983. Used ... $18.99
The expansive musical mind of August Darnell stretches on in this fourth album from Kid Creole & The Coconuts – a blend of dancefloor rhythms and unusual tunes with a B-Movie approach to pop! Darnell's jazzy influences are still running strong on the set – eclipsed slightly by some more modern production, in a way that gives the album a bit more of a crossover feel than previous albums, but still not in a way that mutes the genius underneath. Titles include "Bongo Eddie's Lament", "The Lifeboat Party", "Underachiever", "If You Wanna Be Happy", "Distractions", "Survivors", "Call Me The Entertainer", and "The Seven Year Itch". CD

ParliamentClones Of Dr Funkenstein ... CD
Casablanca, 1976. Used ... $3.99
An oft-overlooked gem from Parliament – released during the year 1976, and sometimes hidden between monster LPs like Funkentelechy and Mothership Connection – but every bit as great as those two classics! The album's got that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at the time – still with all the fuzzy haired elements of earlier years, but presented with a bit more focus – and a powerhouse swing that really drives the tracks home with a funky groove on the bottom! There's a flowing sort of energy here that almost makes you think that the whole thing just emerged naturally from the brain of George Clinton – but all ensemble players have a strong hand in the action, and really get some great moments in on the set. Cuts include "Gamin' On Ya", "Do That Stuff", "Children Of Production", and "I've Been Watching You (Move Your Sexy Body)". CD

✨✧ Donna SummerI'm A Rainbow (expanded 2CD edition) ... CD
Driven By The Music (UK), 1996. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
One of the best Donna Summer albums in years – a set that has her reunited with the production team of Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, who really seem to help her rediscover her strengths! The album's not any sort of easy retro-disco outing, but Moroder and Bellotte really get back to that driving, dramatic style that made Summer such a force in the early days – her way of really sending a tune over the top with her approach to the lyrics, especially the hooks – set here to some more contemporary instrumentation that shows that the trio weren't just a phenomenon of the disco generation. Titles include "Brooklyn", "I Believe In You", "True Love Survives", "Melanie", "Leave Me Alone", "Highway Runner", "Romeo", "I Need Time", "End Of The Week", "I'm A Rainbow", "Back Where You Belong", and "To Turn The Stone". Comes in a nice book-style cover, with lots of notes too! CD
