Art Of NoiseMoments In Love (7:00, 4:40)/Beat Box/Love Beat ... 12-inch
Island, 1984. Near Mint- ... $9.99
It's hard to imagine a more exciting single from the early 80s – as both sides of this one completely changed our way of listening to music, and set the tone for a generation of sounds to come. "Moments In Love" is that breathy slow stepper, presented here in long and short ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Wally BadarouEchoes ... CD
Island/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tough record to peg – but a great one too! Wally Badarou plays a range of spacey keyboards that include synclavier, mini moog, and prophet 5 – all over some beats that are a mix of electro and Carribean rhythms – in a style that's part jazzy, part new agey, and part 80s groove! ... read more CD

✨✧ By All MeansBy All Means ... LP
Island, 1988. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Warm soul from By All Means – a key group in the quiet storm soul years of the mid 80s – one that's equally well-suited to mellow numbers and more upbeat groovers! The trio features two male vocalists and one female – Jimmy Varner, Billy Sheppard, and Lynn Roderick – but ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Betty DavisNasty Gal ... LP
Island/Light In The Attic, 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... About October 9, 2020
The biggest-label release ever cut by 70s funk legend Betty Davis – but a set that's every bit as hard and heavy as the indie dates that preceded it! Davis is at the top of her form here – bad-stepping amidst the heavy drums and freaked-out guitars that easily made her one of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

DefunktDefunkt In America ... CD
Antilles/Island, 1988. Used ... $7.99
Trombone-heavy funk from Joseph Bowie and Defunkt – a key crossover album in the late 80s, and one of the few mainstream funk efforts of its type! By this point, Defunkt have shaken off some of the rockier edges of earlier years, and are going for a more soul-based sound that's clearly ... read more CD

✨✧ Gwen GuthrieGwen Guthrie (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... $10.99
Gwen Guthrie's first album for Island Records – a unique little soul set from the early 80s, recorded in Nassau with backing from Sly & Robbie – in a groove that's totally great! The rhythms here are really at the heart of the set – not in a way that eclipses Gwen's vocals, ... read more CD

Gwen GuthrieIt Should Have Been You (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Island, 1982. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A stunner from Gwen – one of her catchiest club tunes from the early years! "It Should Have Been You" bounces along on a tight bassline, with riffing guitar, and sweet washes of keys that really set the scene for the strong lead vocal. And if that's not enough, Larry Levan mixed ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Gwen GuthriePadlock – Special Mixes By Larry Levan ... LP
Garage/Island, 1983. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A mini-LP, but one that packs more punch than most full length sets – thanks to a top-shelf lineup all the way through! The set's a project put together by Sly & Robbie, and recorded at Compass Point Studios – all with a groove that's kind of a dubbier take on the sound of New York ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gwen GuthriePortrait (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island/PTG (Netherlands), 1983. New Copy ... $10.99
Early work from Gwen Guthrie – produced by Sly & Robbie, but with a sweet modern soul sound that's got a lot less of their influence than you'd guess! The sound is much more New York than Jamaica – and that's probably due to some great instrumental backing on keyboards by the likes ... read more CD

2 great cuts off our favorite Grace Jones LP, driven by Sly & Robbie's irresistable groove, with a percolating, slick 80s production. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Grace JonesSlave To The Rhythm (edited, LP)/Jones The Rhythm ... 12-inch
Manhattan/Island, 1985. Near Mint- ... $9.99
"Slave To The Rhythm" was one of her last big singles, not as compelling as earlier work with a more experimental approach, but recalling the wide washes of soul of some of her disco hits. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Chaka KhanHello Happiness ... CD
Island, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A record that's as upbeat as its title – and a set that returns Chaka Khan to the classic club territory of her 80s solo classics! The music is contemporary, but has lots of old school flavors underneath – hints of strings around the edges, and a warmth next to the beats – all ... read more CD

Island (UK), 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Though you might not know it from some of the bitter rebukes Scratch later laid to wax against him, Romeo was clearly his favorite son when it came to vocalists, and got the prodigal treatment when it came to the choice of rhythms to voice.

20th Century Steel BandWarm Heart, Cold Steel ... LP
Island, 1976. Near Mint- ... $29.99
One of the greatest steel band records ever – and a hip hop sample classic from way back! Sure, there were other hip steel bands back in the 70s – but nobody else ever got as far as 20th Century – ending up on a major label, cutting some key funky covers, and crossing over with ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ze/Island, 1982. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Before Don Was went on to become a huge hit making producer, he cut a number of tasty post disco tracks, like these two excellent Danceteria style numbers, all three versions with an irresistable Lower East Side 80s groove! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Island, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great slice of New Orleans soul from the 70s – a record that replicates the "Indian" culture in the Mardi Gras scene – and which is most notable for featuring work by The Meters as well! The groove here is kind of Meters-styled funk, mixed with some fuller New Orleans mode ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
