✨✧ Noel PointerAll My Reasons ... LP
Liberty, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Noel Pointer gets some great help here from Chicago soul maestro Richard Evans – and the result is one of Pointer's greatest albums ever! Noel's jazzy violin style is mixed with fuller strings and a warmly soulful groove – of the style that Evans was laying down on his own solo work of the period, in a way that really gives the album a tremendous sense of drive and focus. Most cuts groove along in a rolling midtempo mode – just the right pace to hold onto all of the most sophisticated elements of Evans' arrangements, but keep things moving smoothly along too. Pointer sings lead vocals on most numbers, and the use of strings here – mixed with his own violin – is almost a modern soul update of Evans' older Soulful Strings approach! Titles include "Classy Lady", "All The Reasons Why", "Brookline", "Savin It Up", "Virgie", "Oh What A Beautiful City", and "Land Of Make Believe". LP, Vinyl record album

Maurice StarrSpacey Lady ... LP
Arista, 1983. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A key bridge in soul scenes of the 80s – the second album from Maurice Starr, and a set that definitely points the way towards some of the sounds he'd influence later in the decade! There's still plenty of street electro in the mix – the sorts of grooves that Starr was forging as part of the Jonzun Crew – but the record also shows a deeper understanding of crossover soul, too – of the sort that Maurice would push more strongly with some of his younger groups! Starr handles all production, arrangements, and composition aspects of the record – and also plays a good deal of the instruments, too – which are heavy on expected keyboards and drum machine grooves – augmented by a bit of jazzy warmth from guests like Najee and Noel Pointer. Titles are all pretty catchy – some groovy crossover soul numbers – and tunes include "Can It Be Love", "Pretty Girl", "Spacey Lady", "My First True Love", "Electric Funky Drummer", and "Super Rock".
