Great late work by the Jackson 5 – very different than their usual Motown tunes, with a soaring tightly-grooving style that sounds a lot more like the work they cut under the name of The Jacksons for Philly International. The arrangers on the set include Dave Blumberg, Freddie Perren, James Carmichael, and Gene Page – and the album's got plenty of great lively tunes that include "Window Shopping", "You're My Best Friend, My Love", "Love Is The Thing You Need", "Pride & Joy", and "Make Tonight All Mine". Kind of in the "I Am Love"/"Dancing Machine" mode. LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Wolfer —
Wolf ... LP Constellation, 1982. Very Good ...
A rare set of blue-eyed soul from the early 80s – recorded by Bill Wolfer, singer and keyboardist who'd worked heavily with Stevie Wonder in the late 70s, and also a bit with the Jacksons in the early 80s. Wolfer's one of the only white artists to record for the mega-hit Solar label in LA – and this album has a great sound that's somewhere between the work of other Solar artists, and the work that Stevie Wonder was doing at the end of the 70s. Titles include "Call Me", "So Shy", "Papa Was A Rolling Stone", "Nobody Knows", "Soaring", "Wake Up", "Pop Quiz", and "Camouflage". LP, Vinyl record album
