Equistar, 1989. New Copy ... $11.99

FoxyHot Numbers (with bonus track) ... CD
Dash/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $14.99

Playback, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99

FruitFruit ... CD
Athens Of The North (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic funk group from the late 70s – one who've got a sharpness to rival the best of the P-Funk universe of the time, but a sound that's much leaner and powerful overall!
