Nona HendryxArt Of Defense ... LP
RCA, 1984. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Nona Hendryx at the height of her 80s glory – looking mighty fierce in a fencing costume on the cover! As with her previous set, this one's done with heavy help from Material – who bring in a beat heavy sound that's kind of a mainstream variation on the underground New York groove they'd had a few years before. Francois K helps a bit on the mixing, and you can definitely hear some of his playful touches – the sorts of sounds that helped a record like this build a bridge between the clubs and the streets, from Danceteria to the mainstream! Musicians include Bernie Worrell on keyboards and Bill Laswell on bass and tapes – and titles include "To The Bone", "Electricity", "I Sweat", "Soft Targets", "I Want You", "Ghost Love", and "The Life". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch.)

✨✧ Nona HendryxNona ... LP
RCA, 1983. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A smoking-hot batch of 80s soul from Nona Hendryx – and a record that really helped reinvent her sound for a whole new generation! Nona's wisely teamed here with Bill Laswell and Material – with whom she'd worked on previous projects under their name – and Laswell's street-sensitive presence really helps give the record an edge that underscores Nona's credibility in just the right way! A few years later, and most of these touches might sound cloying – yet here, they're handled perfectly – a great way of creating lean grooves with plenty of New York influences – with more than enough energy to catapult Hendryx out to a global mainstream. Material bring in a surprising amount of great help for the set – a range of artists from Kashif to Laurie Anderson to Bernie Worrell, Valerie Simpson, Nile Rodgers, Sly Dunbar, and Tina Weymouth! Titles include "B Boys", "Design For Living", "Transformation", "Keep It Confidential", "Living On The Border", "Run For Cover", "Dummy UP", and "Steady Action". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ LabelleChameleon ... LP
Epic, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A stone classic in the genre of bad-rapping female soul – and one of the key albums cut by the trio of Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash! The arrangements and production are handled by David Rubinson, who gives the set a nicely polished feel that gets a bit past some of the slight cliches that had been creeping into the girls work – a style that shows them equally well skilled at mellower numbers than at the funkier rockier tunes that were their more familiar stock in trade. Titles include "Come Into My Life", "A Man In A Trenchcoat (Voodoo)", "Get You Something New", "Going Down Makes Me Shiver", "Gypsy Moths", and "Who's Watching The Watcher?". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a tracklist sticker, promo stamp, and ink stamps.)

✨✧ LaBelleLaBelle ... LP
Warner, 1971. Very Good ... $8.99
Labelle's first album of rockin soul for Warner, and a great batch of deep soul tracks that take the group far far beyond their 60s girl group recordings! The album's a stunner – complete with ripping vocals by Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash – and done in a hip style that's every bit the best of bad-rapping female soul in the 70s. It's like a bomb went off or something between this one and the group's previous Atlantic album – changing the sound of Patti and the girls tremendously, and turning them towards a style that would keep them in the record racks for years! With the cuts "Too Many Days", "Running Out Of Fools", "When The Sun Comes Shining Through", "Heart Be Still", and a nice version of "Time & Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MaterialOne Down ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the bigger efforts from Material – featuring the core trio of Bill Laswell, Martin Bisi, and Michael Beinhorn – plus guest work by Nona Hendryx, Nile Rodgers, Whitney Houston, Archie Shepp, Oliver Lake, and Fred Frith. The mix of jazz and soul talents comes together more nicely than you might think, thanks to Laswell's talents for crossing cultures – and although a few numbers here sound quite dated, overall the album's worth digging out at least for a document of a unique moment. Titles include "Take A Chance", "Memories", "Don't Lose Control", "Let Me Have It All", "Time Out", "Come Down", and "I'm The One'. LP, Vinyl record album

Soul ClapSoul Clap ... CD
Crew Love, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The Soul Clap duo have a huge amount of help on this full length set – a range of guests that runs from Nona Hendryx, through Ebony Houston, Nick Monaco, Hazmat Talkbox, Dayonne Rollins, Billy Bass Nelson, and others – all of whom help shape the sound nicely over the electro funk elements at the core! These guys are big on 80s-styled bass pedal bits and keyboard lines, but also work their music past any sort of simple retro mode – expanding the sound with some more thoughtful spacey moments, and finding fresh ways to come up with a soulful hook, instead of a cliche. Titles include "Numb", "Synthesizer Girlfriend", "Shine", "Future 4 Love", "Dirty Leslie", and "Timespent". CD

Talking HeadsSpeaking In Tongues ... LP
Sire, 1983. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
David Byrne brings his love of funk and soul to the forefront – tightening things up a bit from before, but still staying strongly in a classic Talking Heads groove! The record's possibly the last of the group's initial classic run, and has a surprisingly soulful feel at times – a hybrid of early 80s funk and club modes, played by guests who include Wally Badarou on synth, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, and Steve Scales and David Van Tieghem on percussion. Nona Hendryx sings a bit of backing vocals too – and Byrne really steps up to the grooves without ever going too far over the top. Titles include "Burning Down The House", "Making Flippy Floppy", "Girlfriend Is Better", "Slippery People", "I Get Wild/Wild Gravity", "Swamp", "Moon Rocks", "Pull Up The Roots", and "This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)".

✨✧ LabellePhoenix ... LP
Epic, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet 70s set that has the trio of Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash teaming up with New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint – who brings the group some of the chunkier grooves he'd been using in his own great 70s work! The album's got a nicely romping sound throughout – a surprisingly good fit for the rockish soul of the girls – and the heavier use of guitar works really well with some of Toussaint's funky undercurrents – much more so than we'd think in a straighter setting. Titles include "Far As We Felt Like Goin'", "Slow Burn", "Cosmic Dnacer", "Black Holes In The Sky", and "Messin' With My Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ VariousLegacy Of Electronic Funk (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sony (Germany), Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Way more than just the electronic funk you might know from the chart-topping groups of the 80s – as this sweet little set digs way deeper, and comes up with some rare mixes and single versions too! The set list is superb – and almost stands as a reintroduction to the genre – as the groups are ones you'll definitely know, but represented by some more obscure cuts – a wonderfully well-chosen set list that really matches the longer length of the package! Titles include "Show Me" by Glenn Jones, "It's Your Turn (extended)" by Delegation, "Searching For The Lady" by New Horizons, "Coast To Coast" by Plush, "You Wouldn't Have To Work At All" by Michael Henderson, "Programmed For Love (12" ext)" by Roy Ayers, "B Boys (12" mix)" by Nona Hendryx, "Are You With Me" by Isley Brothers, "Cover Girl (12" version)" by Johnny Kemp, "Singlehanded (ext)" by Haywoode, "Crimes Of Passion" by Oattes Van Schaik, "Who's Getting It Now (12" version)" by Chocolate Milk, "Thinking Of You (European edit)" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Beat Wise" by Herbie Hancock, "Step By Step (ext rmx)" by Jeff Lorber, "Dial My Number (ext dance)" by Pauli Carman, "Happy (ext version)" by Surface, "Your Spell" by Bobby Glover, "Heaven Sent You (12" mix)" by Stanley Clarke, and "Release The Beast" by Breakwater.

✨✧ LabellePressure Cookin' ... CD
RCA/Reel Music, 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An early classic from LaBelle – wonderful vocals mixed with both heavy funk and laidback spacey soul touches! The group had really hit their stride by this point – as the trio of Nona Hendryx/Sarah Dash/Patti Labelle push way past their girl group roots – and even some of the slightly less-formed modes of their Warner Brothers years – finding a really badass sort of territory that would serve them well for the rest of the 70s! The shift really pays off – as there's a number of good funky numbers on the album – and some righteous political lyricism in the mix, too – but also some mellower moments that really round things out nicely. The trio riff on a version of "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", as led into by the cut "Something In The Air" – and other numbers include "Sunshine (Woke Me Up This Morning)", "Mr. Music Man", "Goin' On a Holiday", "Open Up Your Heart", "Let Me See You In The Light", and "Can I Speak to You Before You Go to Hollywood".

✨✧ Mother's FinestLove Changes – The Anthology 1972 to 1983 ... CD
Soulmusic.com (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of work from Mother's Finest – one of the more unique groups of the 70s, and one of the few who could equally balance sounds from soul, funk, and rock in their music! There's always lots of heavy guitar on the Mother's Finest grooves – and singer Joyce Washington has a sound that puts her right up there with Nona Hendryx for sheer, raw power alongside a fuzzy guitar solo – a mode that works especially well on the funky tracks, of which there are many on the set! The package brings together lots of unusual bits, plus album tracks – and even includes some of the group's rare early material for RCA, not originally issued in the 70s. 37 tracks in all – with titles that include "Bone Song", "Living Hero", "You Move Me", "Monster People", "Hard Rock Lover", "Big Shot Romeo", "Mickey's Monkey", "Baby Love", "Give You All The Love", "Rain", "Dontcha Wanna Love Me", "Run Joe", "Funky Mountain", "Love Changes", "Secret Service", "U Turn Me On", "Watch My Stylin", and "Can't Fight The Feelin".
