Human LeagueFascination ... LP
Virgin/A&M, 1981/1982. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Some great early 80s pop groove material from Human League – less of the colder synth of before, and more of the warmer soul-based sound that worked surprisingly well for the group! The EP features a number of tracks that fell between the LPs – including the extended version of their big hit "(Keep Feeling) Fascination", plus "Mirror Man", "Hard Times", "I Love You Too Much", "You Remind Me Of Gold" and "(Keep Feeling) Fascination Improvisation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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 some light splash stains & some smudges on the back.)

RockwellSomebody's Watching Me ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
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

✨✧ Severed HeadsSince the Accident (black & white colored 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Ink/Medical, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Really great early work from Severed Heads – done at a time when they still had an edge, and were a lot more hip and electro than some of their later more goth-based impulses! The album's a perfect fit for all the best UK underground electrics of the period – Cabaret Voltaire, 400 Blows, and even the earliest Human League – back when they were nice and noisy. The duo have a great way of blending noisy bits with warmer elements – and even do these great sequences with turntables – kind of a more playful Christian Marclay mode! Titles include "Dead Eyes Opened" – which was a bit of a favorite – plus "Golden Boy", "Gashing The Old Mae West", "A Relic Of The Empire", "Epilepsy 82", "Treating Deaf Mutes", and "Brassiere In Rome". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition.)
