Dazz BandHot Spot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... $7.99 13.98
The Dazz Band are in a definite hot spot here – the group's final album for Motown, and a record that's filled with the kind of catchy crossover funk they did better than most! The set snaps into a groove right from the very first note – with that electro funk that Motown served up big in the wake of Rick James, and which the Dazz Band only improve with their rock-solid sound on the set – a mode that has all the instrumental elements coming down sharp on the rhythms, topped by some back/forth group vocals that almost have a Jacksons vibe – except for the tracks in which they get processed with a bit of electro-soul modes! Titles include "If Only You Were In My Shoes", "Hot Spot", "Paranoid", "All The Way", "She Used To Be My Girl", "When You Need Roses", and Slow Rap". This Funky Town Grooves edition has 5 bonus tracks – 12-inch versions and alternate mixes of album tracks and more – including "Hot Spot (Club Mix)", "Heartbeat (12" Version)", "Let It All Blow (Special Disco Remix)", "Swoop (I'm Yours) (12" Version)" and "Joystick (Vocal 12").

Dazz BandJoystick ... LP
Motown, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The Dazz Band brilliantly modernizes their sound for the early-to-mid 80s – without sacrificing the funk one bit on a pair of later Motown albums – '83's Joystick and '84's Jukebox in a single set! As you might guess from the title, on Joystick, Dazz Band thumps and pulses things into a style that's electro and computer groove aware. That said, their background in midwestern funky 70s soul is hardwired into their systems and they bridge the eras masterfully! Titles include "To The Roof", "Joystick", "Until You", "Rock With Me", "Now That I Have You" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

As you might guess from the title, on Joystick, Dazz Band thumps and pulses things into a style that's electro and computer groove aware.

Titles include "To The Roof", "Joystick", "Until You", "Rock With Me", "Now That I Have You" and more. On Jukebox, the Dazz Band hit hard with that catchy, synth-heavy groove that marks their other solid Motown work! The album's got all the catchy pop elements you might guess from the time – not as classically funky as the group in their roots, with lots of emphasis on the keyboards and guitar – that crossover Motown soul mode of the mid 80s. Titles include "So Much Love", "Dream Girl", "She's The One", "Heartbeat", "Let It All Blow", "Undercover Lover", and "Main Attraction". CD

Dazz BandRock The Room (with bonus track) ... CD
BMG/PTG (Netherlands), 1988. New Copy ... $9.99
A later set from The Dazz Band, but a great one too – as the group here almost return to their best modes of the early 80s – working with superproducer Deodato in a set of mighty tight grooves! There's a lean, clean funky vibe to the set – that snapping approach to a cut that made the group one of the runaway funk ensembles of their generation, and which comes through very strongly here in Deodato's hands! The record avoids some of the clunkier funk cliches of the period – and the cuts often have this riffing vibe that, while served up in late 80s instrumentation, still really gets back ad the core of what makes the Dazz Band great. Titles include "Anticipation", "Single Girls", "One Time Lover", "Huff & Puff", and "All The Way". CD also features a bonus club mix of "Anticipation" – mighty nice! CD

✨✧ VariousMaking Trax – The Great Instrumentals ... LP
Motown, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great album of Motown instrumentals! Ever wish you had the instrumental to Rick James "Super Freak" or "Give It To Me Baby", or Gary Byrd's "The Crown"? They're all here alongside other huge Motown hits, like the Dazz Band's "Let It Whip", the Mary Jane Girls "Candy Man" and for your karaoke pleasure, Rockwell's "Somebody's Watching Me" and "Lionel Richie's "All Night Long". These aren't re-recordings of the tunes, they are the actual backing tracks minus the lead vocals, ripe for mixing fun! LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nice 80s groove moment from Pleasure's Give It Up LP, cut well after their more well known jazz funk years at Fantasy, but a nice, tight piece of very bass heavy commercial funk, with some nice synth touches, kind of in the mode of early 80s Cameo or Dazz Band. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousNighttime Lovers Vol 26 – A Fine Collection Of Disco Funk Classics Of The 80s ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The woman on the cover might look like she was kicked out of some anime-based rave, but the music on the set is classic 80s soul all the way through – served up in the blend of warmly-grooving styles we've come to expect from this long-running series! The Nighttime Lovers sets always feature something special, and something new – a few classic cuts, mixed with other 80s soul numbers that we somehow missed at the time – all awash in musical modes that are catchy, but never too poppy or commercial. Titles include "Intervention" by Lavine Hudson, "Stalemate" by Mac Band, "Don't Wanna Be A Sometime Lover" by Sylvia Smith, "Shake It Up" by Dazz Band, "Something Special" by Steve Harvey, "Can You Feel The Beat" by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam with Full Force, "Tuff" by Midnight Star, "Get Loose" by Evelyn King, "Come & Get My Lovin" by Sunrize, and "Hold me Tight" by Robert White.

✨✧ VariousDisco Train 1 ... CD
Universal (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet ride on the Disco Train – served up in a non-stop mix, built from a selection of classic cuts from the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – all of them some well-remembered gems from the dancefloor! Despite the "disco" in the title, the series also features some great tracks from the years beyond Studio 54 – including a few choice import groovers that played big on American dancefloors – the sort of shifting sounds that took over once the second wave of British invasion hit US clubs after the decline of disco! The result is a batch of tracks that's familiar, but presented in a nicely fresh way – and this first volume features a continuous mix 30 tracks that include "She's A Bad Mama Jama" by Carl Carlton, "Love's Dance" by Klique, "Funtime" by Peaches & Herb, "Bad Girls" by Donna Summer, "Don't You Want Me" by Human League, "Glad To Know You" by Chaz Jankel, "Look Of Love" by ABC, "Got To BE Enough" by Con Funk Shun, "It Must Be Love" by Alton McClain & Destiny, "Let It Whip" by Dazz Band, "Give It To Me Baby" by Rick James, "I'm So Hot" by Denise LaSalle, "The Breaks" by Kurtis Blow, and "Saturday Saturday Night" by Zoom.

Little Anthony & The ImperialsBest Of Little Anthony & The Imperials ... LP
Veep, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $1.99
Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work for the Veep/DCP/United Artists label. Teddy Randazzo handled all the arrangments and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. Titles include "Hurt So Bad", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Our Song", "Get Out Of My Life", and "Going Out Of My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

Sunset, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work from the 60s originally released on the Veep, DCP or United Artists labels, collected here for the Liberty subsidiary Sunset. Teddy Randazzo handled the arrangements and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. 10 tracks in all, including "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Take Me Back", "Better Use Your Head", "The Wonder Of It All", "Reputation", "You Better Take It Easy Baby", "Please Go" and "Goin' Out Of My Head".

✨✧ HeatwaveHot Property ... LP
Epic, 1979. Very Good ... $3.99
Man, these guys never seem to miss – and always come up with some great little tunes that snap along in a really compelling way! This album might be easy to overlook in favor of the band's bigger classics, but it's a stone winner all the way through – with a number of tunes that groove on beautifully with tight hooks, skipping beats, warm vocals, and that beautifully compressed production style that always gave Heatwave a sound that slide perfectly into an AM soul radio groove. And sure, there's a few hooks here that feel like they're "borrowed" from some of the bigger hits – but they work wonderfully as a reprise of greatness, and keep us half stepping into the album even more. Titles include "Razzle Dazzle", "Eyeballin", "Raise A Blaze", "First Day Of Snow", "One Night Tan", "All Talked Out", "Disco", and "Therm Warfare". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
