Human LeagueDare ... LP
A&M/Virgin, 1981. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
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

✨✧ Human LeagueLeague Unlimited Orchestra – Love & Dancing ... LP
A&M, 1981/1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool little album of instrumental work by the Human League – mostly pulled from sessions for their first few big hits, and remixed slightly by Martin Rushnet! There's a spare electronic groove here that's very nice – not nearly as dark as the group's first few analogue-heavy singles, but a bit sparser than the vocal hits, and sometimes played with a bit by Rushnet. Titles include "Do Or Die", "Seconds", "Open Your Heart", "Hard Times", "Love Action", "Don't You Want Me", and "The Sound Of The Crowd". LP, Vinyl record album

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

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.

✨✧ VariousSatan In Love – Rare Finnish Synth-Pop & Disco – 1978 to 1992 ... CD
Svart (Finland), Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $16.99
Obscure grooves from the Finnish scene of the 80s – tracks that do a nice job of bridging the space between earlier Euro disco modes, particularly the work of the Munich scene – and the huge wave of electro pop that was coming out of the UK at the time! In fact, much of the material here really feels like the latter – save for the fact that the language is often different – and the groups do a good job of echoing the sweet electronic modes of groups like Human League, Ultravox, and Heaven 17 – working with plenty of beats and keyboards, but usually in a way that's warm and catchy, and not like some of the colder electro work of the period. And even if you can't understand the language, lots of these tunes are pretty darn catchy – and the vocals maybe come across just like one more instrumental element – adding an extra flavor to the sweet electric modes. Titles include "San Salvador" by Argon, "Satan In Love" by Emilia, "Cairo C" by Digital Dance, "Tatsia" by Stress, "Nyt Tanssitaan" by Jerry, "Help Me" by Syntax, "Kuolleet Pelit" by Belaboris, "Harhaa" by Raya, "Vanha Suola Janottaa" by Tapa Paha Tapa, "Fashion Maailma" by Press, "17 Up" by Mick Hanian, and "Computer Talk" by BB.

✨✧ 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
