In case you're wondering, they DO still make 'em like they used to – at least when it comes to classic-styled soul records, like this St Louis effort from Kenny Rice!

RogerBridging The Gap ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1991. New Copy ... $13.99
Roger Troutman's definitely trying to bridge a few different gaps in soul music with this later solo effort – some of his earlier funk, his mid-period electro, and even a bit more mature ballad work – which rounds out the album nicely! Given that Roger initiated so many modes that ... read more CD

Warner (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99
There's many facets of Roger – and they're all pretty darn funky! From this vantage point, all we can think of is that Roger Troutman must have had some sort of crystal ball to see into the hip hop sampling future – either that, or he was busy cooking up west coast gangster funk drones ... read more CD

Roger (Roger Troutman)Unlimited! ... CD
Reprise (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... $13.99
Plenty of beats here from Roger Troutman – going for a sound that's maybe even more electro than some of his earlier solo work, at a level that really seems to be pushing the Zapp sound further for the 80s!

Rose RoyceJump Street ... CD
Whitfield/Wounded Bird, 1981. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
An overlooked later gem by Rose Royce – a funky Norman Whitefield production released shortly after the similarly strong Golden Touch – a mix of funky numbers, more spaced out cosmic keys inflected grooves and a couple of mellow jams!
