✨✧ Gayle AdamsLove Fever (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Prelude, 1982. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
An excellent early 80s dancefloor groover, with some sweet soulful vocals by Gayle Adams, one of our favorite singers on Prelude from that period. Francois K gives the drums a nice snap, over that great 80s moogy groove! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Prelude sleeve. A-side label has a bit of marker.)

✨✧ D TrainBest Of D-Train ... CD
Prelude/Unidisc (Canada), 1986. Used ... Out Of Stock
Nice compilation of tracks by James "D Train" Williams – one of the most soulful artists to arise from the early 80s New York club scene of labels. The tracks are all produced by Hubert Eaves, and they feature a lot of nice keyboard work – presumably from Eaves as well. ... read more CD

✨✧ D TrainMusic (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Prelude, 1983. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Get those bass pedals out of the attic! Hubert Eaves lays down a very nice slightly-electro groove on this classic club track from James D-Train Williams. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Prelude sleeve with top taped seam.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ D TrainWalk On By/Tryin To Get Over/D Train (dub) ... 12-inch
Prelude, 1982. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Massive 80s groove! Long before Sybil cut her version of the Bacharach/David classic "Walk On By", D-Train cut this one – and it's an excellent clubby remake! It's backed by "Tryin To Get Over", a warm soulful mid-tempo track with lots of heavy work on the bass pedals, ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ D TrainYou're The One For Me ... LP
Prelude, 1982. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of the most enduring albums on the Prelude label, and a great bit of modern soul by James "D-Train" Williams. Hubert Eaves produced the album, and he added lots of tasty electro keyboards to the set, played with his usual jazzy touches and a nice flourish that gives Williams' voice a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prelude, 1979. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of the most soulful club tracks of the late 70s – a brillant tune with a monster hook, sung perfectly by Jocelyn Brown, and produced with a sweet strident groove by Patrick Adams! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Labels have a name in marker.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ France JoliFrance Joli ... LP
Prelude, 1979. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sexy disco classic that crossed over big – probably thanks as much to France's sultry photo on the cover as it was to her sweet and jazzy vocals! The tunes were all written and arranged by Tony Green – who's grooving here very much in the best Prelude mode – letting the group ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Martin CircusMartin Circus ... LP
Prelude, 1979. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Excellent underground disco with a groovy French touch! The cover's a bit campy, but the record's got plenty of nice keyboard work, and offsets the coldness of the keys with some soaring strings and warm basslines. The standout cut is "Disco Circus", a 14 minute romp that's pretty darn ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

9th CreationReaching For The Top ... CD
Prelude/Past Due, 1977. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
Damn funky work from 9th Creation – a group who recorded this set for the mostly-disco Prelude label, but who still serve up the same heavy sound as their earlier work! There's a tightness here that few other groups can touch – that special magic that you can hear when a larger funk ... read more CD

✨✧ PowerlineDouble Journey/Journey ... 12-inch
Prelude, 1981. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful post-disco number – awash in slapping bass, skittish percussion, and lots of cool echoey touches that almost veer towards some of the post-punk funk experiments coming from the UK scene! The track's an instrumental, clearly of non-US origins – and it's got a frenetic sort ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Sharon ReddBeat The Street (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Prelude, 1982. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of the biggest classics from Sharon Redd's early 80s run on Prelude Records – a beat-heavy tune that's also got some sweet electric touches! There's a nice hook running through the whole tune – made even nicer by Sharon's vocals – and the single also features a mix by ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Secret WeaponMust Be The Music (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Prelude, 1981. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite 80s club cuts – a track with a quick-stepping bassline on the bottom, some nicely snapping beats, and a lightly sung vocal that almost hits the same DJ-conscious territory as work by Indeep! There's some female chorus vocals behind the guy – which also makes the ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Nick Straker BandLittle Bit Of Jazz (3:59, 5:24) ... 12-inch
Prelude, 1981. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic early 80s groover by Nick Straker – not really as jazzy as you'd expect, but with some nice piano work that hints at use of the instrument in later house singles. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo in a Prelude sleeve. Labels have a name in pen.)

✨✧ StrikersStrikers ... LP
Prelude, 1981. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Classic album of NY club grooves, including their big hit "Body Music", mixed here by Francois Kevorkian and Larry Levan. Unlike a lot of groups on Prelude, these guys didn't seem to cut a whole lot of singles or LPs, but like a lot of the Prelude stable, this album's filled with catchy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Unlimited TouchUnlimited Touch ... LP
Prelude, 1981. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of 80s groove! Unlimited Touch have a cool 2-female lead vocal style – and they keep it tight and soulful on grooves that have a nice tight club sound, in a style that often reminds us of Roy Ayers produced albums, like Ladies Of The 80s, or some of the more uptempo tracks ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
