✨✧ HeatwaveGold (3CD set) ... CD
Crimson (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 3CD set of work from Heatwave – one of the few British soul groups to ever crack the American market back in the 70s! Heatwave have a sound that's tight, and right on the money – upbeat funk at some points, great mellow soul at others – hitting that sort of balance that made them great companions to groups like Kool & The Gang or Earth Wind & Fire on late 70s radio – with a really universal appeal that kept on coming, way past the hits! There's plenty to discover here – a total of 45 tracks in all – including one special CD of disco mixes – and titles include "Raise A Blaze", "Put The Word Out", "Gangsters Of The Groove", "Turn Around", "Star Of A Story", "The Big Guns", "Boogie Nights", "Ain't No Half Steppin", "Too Hot To Handle", "Always & Forever", "Groove Line", "Central Heating", "All You Do Is Dial", "Happiness Togetherness", "Posin Til Closin", "Mind Blowing Decisions (12" mix)", "Groove Line (Mike Maurro mix)", "Bogie Nights (Mike Maurro mix)", "Eyeballin (12" mix)", "Groove Line (12" disco)", "Letting It Loose (12" version)", "Too Hot To Handle (Mike Maurro mix)", "Always & Forever (Mike Maurro mix)', and "Gangsters Of The Groove (12" version)".

✨✧ HeatwaveToo Hot To Handle ... CD
Epic, 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... $5.99 6.98
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

✨✧ Herbie HancockLite Me Up (with bonus track) ... CD
CBS/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A classic album of all-out soul from Herbie Hancock – done in close collaboration with Rod Temperton of Heatwave – in a jazzy-styled version of that group's own great groove! Temperton handled arrangements and a lot of songwriting, and most cuts have lead vocals from Wayne Anthony – who does a nice job with the lyrics, but still leaves Herbie some space for keyboard solos too – in a groove that's a fair bit warmer than some of the other keyboard-heavy soul records of the time. Production is by Narada Michael Walden, Herbie, and Jay Graydon – and titles include the jazzy stepping gem "Getting To The Good Part", plus "Lite Me Up", "The Bomb", "Can't Hide Your Love", "The Fun Tracks", and "Motor Mouth". CD features a bonus track – "Lite Me Up (12" mix)". CD
