Peter AbdulGet Down With Me ... LP
EMI/Dig This Way (Italy), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
The cover looks a bit cheesy – like some sort of Star Search graphic – but the album's a rock-solid gem from the second decade of Nigerian funk – recorded in Lagos with a great boogie vibe, and a groove that's as heavy on keyboards as it is on riffing guitar and percussion!

Boney MNightflight To Venus ... LP
Atlantic/Hansa, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
A nice bit of space age disco fantasy from Boney M – a set that's got a few more electronic touches than some of the group's other records, but which still continues in a straight ahead poppy vein!

Booker T & The MGsHip Hug-Her (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stax, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 21.99
Booker T's definitely getting a bit funky with this one – stepping off with the incredible title cut, a tune which really complicates the groove from the earlier years!

RCA, 1975. Very Good+ ... $36.99
A brilliant soul album! That's right, we said SOUL album!
