ChangeGlow Of Love ... CD
Warner, 1980. Used ... $6.99
The classic debut from Change – and the start of an amazing run of groovers in the early 80s! The set's got a tight, jazzy feel throughout – a stripped-down approach to disco modes, with the same focus on the basslines that you'd find in work by Chic – but a style that's almost ... read more CD

Kenny Claiborne's the singer, but the record's clearly got plenty of help from The Armed Gang – a small group that may well just be the Italian producer Sangy, who brings all sorts of sweet electro soul elements to the mix!
