✨✧ Human LeagueDare ... LP
A&M/Virgin, 1981. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterpiece of synth pop – and a landmark album for the Human League! The record took the group from the Brit post-punk underground to the charts of the world – with a stark blend of noisy keyboards, spare beats, and Phil Okey's wonderfully flat and monotone vocals. And although the record is a bit of a departure from the group's noisier first few albums, it's also still got a dark edge that we'd kind of missed the first time around. Includes a nice remake of the theme from "Get Carter", plus loads of little great synth tunes like "I Am The Law", "Seconds", "The Sound Of The Crowd", and "Darkness" – as well as the hits "Love Action", "Don't You Want Me", and "The Things That Dreams Are Made Of". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the original inner sleeve. Cover has an unglued top seam.)

✨✧ Human LeagueTravelogue ... LP
Virgin (UK), 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second album by Human League – and one that has them really honing their craft a bit, sliding from a world of messed-up broken-down synthesizers into more song-based forms that hint at the genius pop of later years. Things are still pretty darn dark – with vocals that would scare a cat, and lots of prog/punk riffs on the keys and drums – and the album's a key link in a trajectory of European music of the 70s that's still plenty darn powerful today! Titles include "Gordon's Gin", "The Touchables", "Crow & A Baby", and "The Black Hit Of Space". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing.)

Die KruppsVolle Kraft Voraus ... LP
WEA/Art Of Facts (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... About April 20, 2018
One of the earliest albums from Die Krupps, and one of the best! Although the group was later known for its heavier, more beat-oriented work, this album's got a lean blend of electronics and post-punk energy – kind of a German take on UK energy of the time, delivered with a really stark, raw sound overall! Most numbers feature some kind of rhythmic keyboard part, but played with the colder styles of early Human League – topped with slight noises, almost in an Einsturzende mode, as well as spare, shouted, DAF-styled lyrics. The whole thing's a brilliant transformation of earlier German prog modes – with the same hypnotic feel as before, but a much leaner, meaner sound in the end. Tiutles include "Volle Kraft Voraus", "Goldfinger", "Fur Einen Augenblick", "Neue Helden", "Larm Macht Spass", "2 Herzen 1 Rhythmus", and "Tod Und Teufel". LP, Vinyl record album

RockwellSomebody's Watching Me ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... About May 16, 2018
One of the strangest acts to come from Motown in the early 80s – and almost more of a new wave record than a soul one! The standout hit here is the title track "Somebody's Watching Me" – an odd electro tune that has Rockwell speaking/singing these paranoid lyrics with a vague British accent – but which has Michael Jackson coming in on the chorus to warm up the tune! Sadly, Michael's gone for the rest of the record – so Rockwell takes center stage with tunes that have a soul-based take on styles heard more familiarly by Human League or Ultravox at the time – and which display the real Anglophile bent in American pop at the time. Still, there's a few nice electro moments – and titles include "Obscene Phone Caller", "Change Your Ways", "Runaway", "Wasting Time", and "Knife". CD

VariousAll That Disco 100 (6CD set) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 6CD ... $48.99
100 disco and dance tracks, all in a mighty nice package – and a set that's maybe got as much funky soul and upbeat grooves as it does more mainstream work from the clubs! The package goes past the obvious late 70s disco years – and begins with some earlier soul from the 70s, then even moves into some big 80s dancefloor tracks as well – the kind of delightful pop numbers that seem to be getting a lot more play from the younger generation who didn't live through the music the first time around! Titles include "I Just Can't Say Goodbye" by Philly Devotions, "The Bump" by The Commodores, "Summer Place 76" by Percy Faith, "Shining Star" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Love's Theme" by Love Unlimited Orchestra, "Lady Marmalade" by Labelle, "Dazz" by Brick, "Sky High" by Jigsaw, "Yes Sir I Can Boogie" by Baccara, "Boogie Nights" by GQ, "This Is It" by Melba Moore, "Do It Any Way You Wanna" by People's Choice, "Rockin Soul" by Hues Corporation, "Disco Inferno" by Trammps, "The Boss" by Diana Ross, "Super Freak" by Rick James, "Lovely One" by The Jacksons, "Paradise" by Change, "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Best Of My Love" by The Emotions, "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Boys Town Gang, "Le Freak" by Chic, "I'm In The Mood For Dancing" by The Nolas, "Hello Mr Monkey" by Arabesque, "DJ In My Life" by Annie, "I Like Chopin" by Gazebo, "Wanted" by The Dooleys, "I Was Made For Lovin You" by Kiss, "Dschingis Khan" by Genghis Khan, "Breakout" by Swing Out Sister, "Let's Hear It For The Boy" by Deniece Williams, "Living In America" by James Brown, "Digging Your Scene" by The Blow Monkeys, "Conga" by Miami Sound Machine, "Hold Me Now" by Thompson Twins, "Don't You Want Me" by Human League, "Take On Me" by A-Ha, "Maneater" by Hall & Oates, "Respectable" by Mel & Kim, "Toy Toy" by Sinitta, "Two Of Hearts" by Stacey Q, "Venus" by Bananarama, "Eat You Up" by Angie Gold, "You Spin Me Round" by Dead Or Alive, "Point Of No Return" by Expose, "People Hold On" by Lisa Stansfield, "Give Me UP" by Michael Fortunati, and "Cha Cha Cha" by Finzy Kontini.

✨✧ Heaven 17Luxury Gap ... LP
BEF/Virgin (UK), 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heaven 17 soften up their politics a bit with this second album (yet still address class inequality issues with the title!) – but they also manage to replace their Marxist agenda with some groovier, more soul-based tunes – just the kind of material that helped push them out of import obscurity into more of a crossover market in the US! The album's fondly remembered for the electro dancefloor numbers "Temptation", "Come Live With Me", and "Let Me Go" – all of which stand a cut above the work of their predecessors Human League, and show an ability to go past simple electronic pop riffs – even if they are all pretty darn catchy! Other tracks are great too – and the record has a joyous, optimistic quality that's every bit the best side of this scene from the early 80s generation. Titles include "We Live So Fast", "Best Kept Secret", "Crushed By The Wheels Of Industry", and "Key To The World". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)
