Man ParrishBoogie Down (Bronx, dub) ... 12-inch
Sugarscoop, 1984. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Original pressing of "Boogie Down Bronx", one of the first hip hop tracks about The Bronx, and the early electro classic that Newcleus copied the bassline, drums and vocoder sound from on "Jam On It". The production almost sounds as if this could be a mid 80s Arthur Baker cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Sugarscoop sleeve.)

New EditionCandy Girl (voc, sing a long) ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1982. Near Mint- ... $3.99
An electro pop classic – and one of the greatest tunes by New Edition! The track's got some nice street beats from Arthur Baker, and catchy lead vocals that sound a lot like the Jackson 5 at their best! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Streetwise sleeve.)

Diana RossSwept Away ... LP
RCA, 1984. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
A surprising hit for Diana Ross – a record that really helped the singer shine brightly in the 80s, but with a vibe that's quite different than her years at Motown! The album's got plenty of star power on board – production work from Arthur Baker, Richard Perry, Daryl Hall, Lionel Richie, and Bernard Edwards – and a musical lineup that features half those artistes, plus work from Jeff Beck, Nile Rodgers, and the Brecker Brothers too! Diana's vocals aren't as over the top as during the disco years – and find a nice place to percolate within the warmer 80s grooves – mostly rhythms that have a nice sort of crossover potential, but not in a way that's as clunky or commercial as some of her contemporaries. Title sinclude "Missing You", "It's Your Move", "Swept Away", "Telephone", "All Of You", "Touch By Touch", "Nobody Makes Me Crazy", and "Rescue Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Casablanca, 1979. Very Good- ... $0.99
A later bit of Philly disco – recorded at Sigma Sound studios with really soaring production from Tom Moulton – and some surprising help on a number of tracks from a young Arthur Baker! The style here has that Instant Funk sort of groove – a bit more bass at the bottom than earlier Philly disco, and a real penchant for instrumental breakdowns in the Salsoul mode – stepping out nicely on a set of longer tracks that really bubble over with energy! Titles include "Put Yourself In My Place", "Small Circle Of Friends", "I Don't Need No Music", and "Am I Dreaming". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Nolan ThomasYo! Little Brother ... LP
Mirage/Atco, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
The full album built around Nolan's kiddie club hit "Yo Little Brother" – a track that really takes us back, like any of the Arthur Baker or Johnny Rocca cuts, or Shannon's "Let the Music Play". We're not sure this qualifies for classic status, but it does make us feel a little nostalgic – and the rest of the album has a similar feel. Titles include "I Promise", "Too White", "One Bad Apple", "Jungle Of The Heart", and "Hold Me In Your Shell". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a hype sticker and promo stamp.)

King CurtisArthur Murray's Music For Dancing – The Twist ... LP
RCA, 1961. Very Good ... $4.99
A stodgy cover, but a great groover – raw instrumental dance soul from sax great King Curtis – recorded for RCA in 1961 – really great, energetic covers of big band numbers and more in a hard grooving R&B mode! Don Covay and others sing on the "Twist" tunes – "Peppermint Twist", "The Arthur Murray Twist" and a couple more – but the instrumentals are pretty incredible, too. Mickey Baker and Billy Butler are on guitar, and the whole group of musicians really cook! Other tracks include "Jersey Bounce", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Stompin' At The Savoy", "The Fly" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Living stereo pressing. Cover has some wear.)

A great collection of work from one of the best labels of the south! The 2LP set features a massive amount of rare singles, many by others that we've never heard before – and makes for a great overview of the labels blues, soul, and bluesy soul output!
