DelegationEau De Vie (aka Delegation) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ariola/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $12.99
A sweet bouncy groover – one of the rare albums of modern soul cut by the group Delegation! The group in this incarnation are a trio – Ray Patterson, Ricky Bailey, and Bruce Dunbar on vocals – stripped-down harmonically, a perfect fit for the album's groove-heavy arrangements. The album's got the same warm finish, with a touch of jazz, that you might find in some of the Arista modern soul albums from the same era – infused with a bit more of a club approach on a few of the more uptempo cuts. Titles include "Blue Girl", "Heartache No 9", "One More Step To Take", "Sho Nuff Sold On You", "Darlin", "You & I", "Stand Up", and "Put A Little Love On Me". CD features lots of bonus tracks – "Heartache No 9 (12" special rmx version)", "Put A Little Love On Me (12" long)", "You & I (single)", "Heartach No 9 (single)", and "Put A Little Love On Me (single)".

✨✧ JapanQuiet Life ... LP
Ariola (UK), 1979. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A real turning point in the career of Japan – and a set that really shows David Sylvian coming into his own, both as a singer and a songwriter! The sound here is a complete change from the group at the start – these really wonderful tunes that mark Japan as one of the smarter, more sophisticated groups of the new romantic generation – and one that maybe is even better, as they never had the same sort of chart success, and only let the skills of David Sylvian deepen as they went on – instead of trying to sound more commercial, and grabbing for hits! John Punter produced, and does a good job of focusing on the more subtle elements in the mix – on titles that include "Quiet Life", "Fall In Love With Me", "Halloween", "Alien", "The Other Side Of Life", "Despair", and a nice remake of "All Tomorrow's Parties".

✨✧ SpinWhirlwind (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Ariola/Big Pink (South Korea), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The soaring second album from Spin – and like the first from this hip Dutch combo, a very cool mix of funky jazz, tighter arrangements, and some forward-moving rhythms! The sound isn't exactly in the CTI/Kudu records mode, but definitely falls in the same side of the jazz spectrum – as the arrangements are key to the sound of the record, and balance the lineup's sound that includes saxes and flute from Jan Vennik, trumpet from Rein Van Der Broek, drums from Cees Krandenburg, bass from Jan Hollestelle, and guitar from Hans Hollestelle – plus keyboards from both of the last two as well! Things have a nicely swirling vibe – almost an AOR take on funky fusion at times, but with only a bit of vocals on the records, as the set is mostly instrumental – and the group also bring in the great Toots Thielemans for harmonica solos on two tracks too. Titles include "Super B", "Yellow Kites", "You're A Clown", "T Ford Two", "Tarantula", "Baby's Delight", "Dance Of The Seagull", and "Telegraphcanyon Roadrunner". CD

✨✧ DelegationIn Love's Time – The Delegation Story 1976 to 1983 ... CD
Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A career-spanning look at the music of Delegation – one of the few UK soul groups of the 70s who could go head-to-head with the best American acts of the time! Delegation have this razor-sharp style that almost prefaces 80s groove – a mode that was born in the disco generation, but which is much leaner overall – and really well-suited to the vocal approach of the trio – who themselves are maybe tighter and hipper than a good deal of their contemporaries! By the time the 70s were drawing to a close, Delegation had really grown into something wonderful – and you'll hear a great evolution in sound and style on this massively-packed set – which includes early work for the State label, plus bigger sides for Ariola and Mercury – including a few single mixes too. 33 titles in all – with tracks that include "Turn On To City Life", "12th House", "It's Your Turn (12" mix)", "Heartache No 9 (12" mix)", "Oh Honey (12" mix)", "Stand Up", "Sho Nuff Sold On You", "Let Me Take You To The Sun", "Mr Heartbreak", "Gonna Bring The House Down", "Feels So Good", "Dance Prance Boogie", "Singing (12" mix)", "I Figure I'm Out Of Your Life", "I Wantcha Back", "Tell Her", "Welcome To My World", "We Can Make It", and "Someone Oughta Write A Song".
