✨✧ Dazz BandJoystick/Jukebox ... CD
Motown/FTG, 1983/1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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. 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 ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousShaft & Other 60s & 70s Cult Film Themes ... CD
Sequel (UK), 1970s. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A really crazy batch of 70s soundtrack tunes! Most of these tracks aren't the original versions – but were knockoff ones that were recorded by studio groups in the UK to cash in on the big hits. Not that that's a problem with us, though, as the new versions are sometimes better than the originals – or at least fresher, in that they add new twists to some old favorites. There's a total of 50 tracks on 2 CDs, and tracks include "Bedazzled" by Tony Hatch, "Superfly" and "Shaft" by Synthesonic Sounds, "The Italian Job" by Cyril Stapleton, "Rocky" by Lonnie Youngblood, "Superman" by Dr Exx Band, "The Godfather" by The Button Down Brass, "Rollerball" by The Alyn Ainsworth Orchestra, "True Grit" by Don Black, "Help" and "Let It Be" by The Synthesonic Sounds, "Man With The Golden Gun" by Lulu, "Dr Strangelove" by Laurie Johnson, "Midnight Cowboy" by The Button Down Brass, and lots lots more!

✨✧ HeatwaveHot Property ... LP
Epic, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. Cover has a partially unglued top seam.)
