Human LeagueFascination ... LP
Virgin/A&M, 1981/1982. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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 LeagueTravelogue ... LP
Virgin (UK), 1980. Very Good ... $2.99
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
(Canadian pressing with an alternate cover.)

✨✧ Human LeagueHysteria ... LP
Virgin/A&M, 1984. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A bit later in the classic range for Human League – but still pretty darn great! By this point, Phil Oakey and crew are heading straight for the dancefloor on most numbers – hitting a bassy, slightly funky style that almost comes off like Gang Of Four around the same period – but which has more of a keyboard focus overall. The album features a surprising remake of the old Lyn Collins classic "Rock Me Again & Again & Again", plus the hit mellow tune "Louise", the dance politics number "The Lebanon", and the tracks "The Sign", "So Hurt", "I'm Coming Back", "Life On Your Own", and "Betrayed". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

Hot GossipGeisha Boys & Temple Girls ... CD
Virgin/Repeat (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $3.99
Hot Gossip were more of a dance troupe than a pop one – but that little fact didn't stop them from recording this new wave classic with help from the BEF arm of Heaven 17! Although Hot Gossip were probably known best for their sexy dancing on TV shows of the late 70s – most notably Kenny Everett's Video Show – the music on the album is far less cheesy than the group's visual performances, and has a spare, stark approach to electronics that's not unlike some of the best early music of Human League – particularly that point when Martyn Ware and Ian Marsh of BEF were still in the group. Tracks include tunes originally recorded by Heaven 17, Human League, Talking Heads, and The Police – set to cool synth arrangements that are mostly instrumental, and are often much sparer than the more famous vocal versions. Titles include "Houses In Motion", "Geisha Boys & Temple Girls", "Circus Of Death", "I Don't Depend On You", "Soul Warfare", and "Word Before Last". CD

✨✧ VariousDisco Train 1 ... CD
Universal (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $26.99
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.
