HeatwaveCandles ... LP
Epic, 1980. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Killer soul from Heatwave – a tight little group who definitely made the UK proud at the end of the 70s! The album's a bit more obscure than the group's first few, but the sound is very much the same – a warmly grooving approach that's neither too disco, nor too sleepy – always catchy on the hooks, and recorded with a nicely flanged style on the vocals – so that they're compressed a bit, and slide nicely in alongside the beats and keys! The mighty Rod Tempterton's still handling a good deal of the arrangements on the set, and some of the backings are orchestrated by Johnny Cameron – almost in a late 70s update of his earlier funky style. Titles include the funky cut "Gangsters Of The Groove", plus "All I Am", "Dreamin You", "Party Suite", "Posin Til Closin", "Turn Around", and "Where Did I Go Wrong", a sweet little ballad. LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing. Includes the insert.)

✨✧ HeatwaveToo Hot To Handle ... CD
Epic, 1976. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A killer album of crossover soul from the mid 70s – one that dropped like a bomb when it hit, and gave this UK group a number of big hits in America! Keyboardist Rod Temperton wrote all the tracks on the album – and he's got keen talent for both funky numbers and ballads. If soul stations played album side specials the way that classic rock stations do, side one would be in heavy rotation – as it kicks off with the funky title cut, rolls into the hit "Boogie Nights", cuts to the sample classic "Ain't No Half Steppin" (forever made famous by Big Daddy Kane), and steps into the moody ballad "Always & Forever". It's hard to beat that lineup, but side two does a pretty good job – and includes a similar mix of titles like "Super Soul Sister", "All You Do Is Dial", and "Sho'nuff Must Be Love". CD

✨✧ Brothers JohnsonLight Up The Night ... CD
A&M, 1980. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
More hit magic from the Brothers Johnson – still working with Quincy Jones at this point, and virtually setting up the blueprint for jazzy soul in the 80s! Backings are by an all-star team, and Rod Temperton's helping out Quincy with arrangements – going for that snapping groove approach he worked to best effect with Heatwave. The sound is tight, but never too slick – and The Brothers keep a nice funky undercurrent on the bottom of most tracks. Titles include "Smilin On Ya", "You Make Me Wanna Wiggle", "Light Up The Night", "Stomp", "This Had To Be", and "Closer To The One You Love". CD

James White/The ContortionsSecond Chance ... LP
Ze/PVC, 1980. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A hip split LP that serves up work from two of the best artists to ever record for Ze Records! On side one, James White is at the top of his game – working in a punky, funky mix of rhythms – a key cross between both sides of the New York scene in the post-disco years, in a groove that's as arty as it is perfect for the dancefloor! Titles include "Almost Black", "Stained Sheets", "Contort Yourself (orig British mix)", and "Tropical Heatwave". Side two features equally quirky work from The Contortions – with lots of riffing guitar and weird effects over hip postpunk rhythms – on cuts that include "Design To Kill", "I Don't Want To Be Happy", and "Contort Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

✨✧ Quincy JonesDude (double a-side single) ... 12-inch
A&M, 1981. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The "Dude" is right – as Quincy was definitely on the top of his game for this one – working with Rod Templeton and Patti Austin on a great soul tune that's got a bouncing, stepping groove that's totally great! Almost like the best of Heatwave – but with some nice vocoded vocals and strong jazzy Jones touches! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo.)
