✨✧ StylisticsSome Things Never Change (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Streetwise/Octave (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
An overlooked later moment from The Stylistics – proof that a great vocal group never gets old! The set has the quartet reinventing themselves for a new generation – recording for Arthur Baker's Streetwise Records, and getting production and arrangements from Maurice Starr – who has this great way of creating an 80s take on the mellow modes that always suited the group's vocals so well – the kind of late nite harmony numbers The Stylistics virtually helped invent! There's a few more electro soul numbers, too – and even these sound pretty great, given that there's an honesty to the vocals that's very different than a stiffer singer of the vocoder generation. Titles include "Give A Little Love For Love", "The Girl In Yellow", "Love Is Not The Answer", "Just The Two Of Us", and "Some Things Never Change". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Give A Little Love For Love (12" acapella)" and "Give A Little Love For Love (12" piano & vocal)". CD

✨✧ John RoccaI Want It To Be Real (vocal, inst)/Englishman In New York ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1984. Used (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Classic electro from the team of John Rocca and Arthur Baker, one that really takes us back. A bit of on the pop side of things, but still some great early linn drum grooves. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Man ParrishHip Hop, Be Bop (Don't Stop) (ext)/Heatstroke (club) ... 12-inch
Importe/12, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
A classic electro groove – and one of the tracks that's a contender for the origin of the word "hip hop"! A very nice groove with an early Arthur Baker feel, and the kind of cut that we slept on during the 80s, but which sounds totally great today! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ King CurtisArthur Murray's Music For Dancing – The Twist ... LP
RCA, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 split seams.)
