King CurtisMusic For Dancing – The Twist ... CD
RCA/Shout (UK), 1961. New Copy ... $8.99
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 musicans really cook! Other tracks include "Jersey Bounce", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Stompin' At The Savoy", "The Fly" and more. CD

New EditionCandy Girl ... LP
Streetwise/Get On Down, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
A poppy record, but a great one too – and a surprisingly enduring pleasure from the Streetwise scene of the 80s! This is the album that started it all – the wave of younger groups that would come into play in 80s soul strongly by the latter half of the decade – New Edition with its now-classic lineup that includes a young Ralph Tresvant, Bobby Brown, and the Bell, Biv, Devoe trio! The album's really the brainchild of producer Maurice Starr, who's also working here with a fair bit of help from Michael Jonzun and a bit of guidance from Arthur Baker – all of whom serve up tunes that are sweet and catchy, and which are almost an 80s update of the sound of the Jackson 5 or Five Stairsteps from a decade before – given a hipper, more streetsoul undercurrent. Titles include "She Gives Me A Bang", "Pass The Beat", "Ooh Baby", "Popcorn Love", "Candy Girl", "Should Never Have Told Me", and "Gimme Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

TJMTJM (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Casablanca/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
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". This Big Break UK remastered edition has 3 bonus tracks: "Storm Warning", "Put Yourself In My Place (Single Version)" and "Am I Dreaming (Single Version)". CD

✨✧ Criminal Element OrchestraPut The Needle To The Record Again (needle voc, Sky King needle dub, electro beats, Sky King radio) ... 12-inch
Criminal, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A late 80s Arthur Baker production, and a sort of a side bar in the cut and paste scene that was going on in and around NYC at the time. Not as essential as some other early cut'n'paste pieces, but still a nice break mix with that early Arthur Baker feel, and some nice editing courtesy Gail Sky King. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Al GreenKeep On Pushing Love/Your Heart's In Good Hands ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1996. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Later work from Al Green – produced by Arthur Baker, who sets Al up in some surprisingly nice contemporary grooves! "Keep On Pushing" has a nice stepping groove from the start – but Al's vocals still have all that classic style overall – that sublime, spiritual flow that just gets better and better as the tune rolls on! "Your Heart" is great too – a joyous midtempo groover that stands strongly with Greens' classics from the 70s! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Diana RossSwept Away (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1984. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
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. Titles include "Missing You", "It's Your Move", "Swept Away", "Telephone", "All Of You", "Touch By Touch", "Nobody Makes Me Crazy", and "Rescue Me". CD 2 features 9 bonus tracks – different mixes of "Swept Away", "Touch By Touch", "Missing You", and "Telephone" – plus the 7" version of "Fight For It". CD
