✨✧ Human LeagueAnthology – A Very British Synthesizer Group ... CD
Virgin, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just another anthology – as this 2CD collection features a great range of sounds from these legendary synth pop legends – plus some rare mixes and unusual versions too! The collection definitely includes those early 80s singles that made Human League so great – but there's also some of their weird early analogue electronics, too – plus some later tracks that are surprisingly great, and which appear here on CD format for the first time ever – really rounding out the 30 track package in a great way! Titles include "The Dignity Of Labour (part 3)", "Empire State Human", "Fascination (ext version)", "Lebanon (single)", "Hello Louise (DJ edit)", "Sound Of The Crowd (inst)", "Hard Times", "Nightclubbing", "Boys & Girls", "Night People (radio edit)", "Heart Like A Wheel (William Orbit rmx)", "Life On Your Own", "Human (ext version)", "I Need Your Loving (DJ edit)", "Filling Up With Heaven", "Live Is All That Matters (edit)", "Never Let Me Go", "Sky (radio edit)", "Night People (radio)", "Mirror Man", "You Remind Me Of Gold", "Open Your Heart", and of course, "Don't You Want Me".

VariousDisco Train 3 ... CD
Universal (Japan), Late 70s/1980s. Used ... $9.99
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 – as well as some big crossover pop tracks that continued the groove well into the 80s. The result is a batch of tracks that's familiar, but presented in a nicely fresh way – and this third volume features a mix of 30 surprising cuts that include "Light Up The Night" by Brothers Johnson, "Word Up" by Cameo, "She's A Super Lady" by Luther Vandross, "Miss Me Blind" by Culture Club, "Upside Down" by Diana Ross, "Dancing Queen" by Abba, "Now That We Found Love" by Heavy D & The Boyz, "Conga" by Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine, "She Talks To Me With Her Body" by The Bar-Kays, "Let The Music Play" by Shannon, "Fascination" by Human League, "Samba De Janeiro" by Bellini, "Mr Saxobeat" by Alexandra Stan, "Telephone Operator" by Pete Shelly, and "Hungry Like The Wolf" by Duran Duran.

VariousIn The Beginning There Was Rhythm – The Rise Of Dance Music After Punk ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 80s. Used ... $2.99
The resurgence of one of the most groundbreaking periods in recent groove history – the almost-forgotten post-punk years in England, a time of incredible musical convergence! In the heady days of the early 80s – a time when much music was being lost under a gloss of big hair, tinny keyboards, and wispy vocals – a small underground of British musicians were bringing together bits of funk, punk, disco, reggae, and 70s electronica – crafting dark and funky little tunes the likes of which we've barely heard since! A number of these groups went onto do much larger (and weaker) recordings – but this package brilliantly documents the edgy brilliance at the beginning of the post punk years: a nihilistic horizon on the other end of punk – no longer angry, caustic, and shouting, on one hand with the wind knocked out of its apparent sails, on the other, slowly fomenting in secret places, coming up with music far more powerful than punk ever was. And for some strange reason, much of it was pretty darn funky – thanks to a heavy use of simple electric bass, scattershot (sometimes primitive) drum parts, and nice electronic touches, almost in an inverse to American electro. The music more than speaks for itself – and the set's as classic a batch of tunes from the time as we'd ever heard. Titles include "Shack Up" and "Knife Slits Water" by A Certain Ratio, "In The Beginning There Was Rhythm" by The Slits, "20 Jazz Funk Greats" by Throbbing Gristle, "Vegas El Bandito" and "Coup" by 23 Skidoo, "She Is Beyond Good & Evil" by The Pop Group, "Being Boiled" by The Human League, "To Hell With Poverty" by Gang Of Four, and "24 Track Loop" by This Heat.

✨✧ Philip Oakey & Giorgio MoroderPhilip Oakey & Giorgio Moroder ... LP
A&M, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The overlooked collaboration between Human League singer Philip Oakey and producer Giorgio Moroder! The duo initially worked together on the outstanding "Together In Electric Dreams" single – a surprise hit from Moroder's soundtrack for a forgettable movie – and given The Human League's move towards a dancefloor sound around the same time, the timing was perfect! Moroder lays down a soulful synth backdrop that rarely lets up – in fact, the first five tunes flow together almost like a continuous suite! Ultimately, this is a sweet, largely forgotten slice of quintessentially 80s sounds – in a style that's endured – especially when you consider its influence on groups like Passion Pit a good 25 years later! Other tracks include "Now", "Why Must The Show Go On", "In Transit", "Goodbye Bad Times" "Brand New Lover (Take A Chance)", "Be My Lover Now", "Valerie" and "Shake It Up". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ OMD (Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark)Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (1st version) ... LP
Dindisc (UK), 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw postpunk electronics from OMD – not necessarily as dark as work from groups like Cabaret Voltaire or early Human League, but with a nicely stripped down feel that showed that the punk ethos could be filtered down to the world of Kraftwerk and some of the more overblown electronicists of the 70s. Tracks are short, sweet, and with a good blend of pop lyrics and spare electronics – with titles that include "Bunker Soldiers", "Almost", "Electricity", "Dancing", "Pretending To See The Future", "Julia's Song", and "The Messerschitt Twins". LP, Vinyl record album
(US Epic pressing in the grey cover.)

✨✧ RockwellSomebody's Watching Me ... LP
Motown, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has two small peeled spots.)
