Man ParrishHip Hop, Be Bop (Don't Stop) (ext)/Heatstroke (club) ... 12-inch
Importe/12, 1982. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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

John RoccaI Want It To Be Real (vocal, inst)/Englishman In New York ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1984. Very Good (pic cover)... $4.99
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
(Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Englishman In New York".)

Rockers RevengeWalking On Sunshine '82 (long, short)/Rockin On Sunshine/Acapella Sunshine ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1982. Very Good ... $2.99
With that early 80's club sound and sung vocals, produced by Arthur Baker and Jellybean. The 10-minute Rockin On Sunshine mix is a mostly instrumental version, with much more spare production, where each drum/bass/synth line is allowed to go on for a minute without all the other orchestration. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Streetwise sleeve.)

Streetwise, 1982. Very Good ... $1.99
Rockers Revenge seems to be the name Arthur Baker and John Robie used for used for releasing electro covers. For this single, they do an electro version of the the Jimmy Cliff reggae cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has some marker.)

✨✧ StylisticsSome Things Never Change (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Streetwise/Octave (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $22.99
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

✨✧ New EditionCandy Girl ... LP
Streetwise, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Cover has moderate wear.)

✨✧ New EditionCandy Girl (voc, sing a long) ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.)

✨✧ TJMTJM ... LP
Casablanca, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
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 a name in large letters on both sides, a promo stamp, and some pen. Labels have some pen.)

King CurtisArthur Murray's Music For Dancing – The Twist ... LP
RCA, 1961. Very Good- ... $3.99
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 split seams.)
