StarpointAll Night Long ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... About June 13, 2018
Starpoint's getting a bit loose and free with their fashions on the cover of this one – but the grooves themselves are tighter than ever! If anything, Starpoint seems to be a lot more confident than before – working in a mode that's completely free from late 70s trends, but which also doesn't fall into the traps of others of their generation – a sound that's electric and funky, yet also plenty darn soulful too. Renee Diggs' vocals are completely great on the album – bringing in a depth that's really appreciated, and giving the group a much more well-rounded sound than so many other all male ensemble funk acts of the time. Ballads and mellower numbers are every bit as great as the groovers too – and titles include "All Night Long", "Get Your Body Up", "Bring Your Sweet Lovin Back", "Show Me", "I Can Give You Love", and "It's You".

StarpointWanting You ... CD
Chocolate City/Universal (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... About June 13, 2018
Massive work from Starpoint – the kind of all-great record that few other groups of their era could hope to match! The set's got way more going on than usual the usual 80s groove (although that's very firmly in place too) – and steps out with a tightness and sense of presence that makes the whole thing sparkle from start to finish! By the time of this set, Starpoint had really gotten their groove down – and work here as a key link between the bassier groups of the boogie era and some of the hipper ensemble funk combos of the mid 70s scene. The Phillips brothers and Kayode Adeyemo provide impeccable instrumentation throughout – and as before, the lead vocals of Renee Diggs do a tremendous job of pulling the whole album together! Titles include "Wanting You", "Try Me", "Shake It Out", "Do What You Wanna Do", "Angel", "Last Night", and "Starnite You Nite". CD

✨✧ StarpointKeep On It ... LP
Chocolate City, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent work from Starpoint – the kind of all-solid album that easily marks them as one of the most soulful groups of the boogie generation! There's a depth here that goes way beyond simple bass-heavy grooves for the dancefloor – a sound that picks a fair bit up from the Earth Wind & Fire groove of the early 70s, and manages to keep some jazzy touches and righteous undercurrents going on – even when the tunes themselves have simpler themes overall. Renee Diggs' lead vocals are especially wonderful – crackling with a warmth that's a nice change from the usual belting club diva mode of the period, and which ties together the rest of the group through the strength of her presence. Rhythms are nicely varied too – with some key ballads sitting nicely next to more uptempo numbers – making for a well-rounded album that's extremely well put together! Titles include "I Just Want To Be Your Lover", "For You", "Keep On It", "We're Into Love", "Starpoint's Here Tonight", and the excellent but too short "Interlude". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCaptain Vinyl Presents Diggin Disco ... CD
Universal (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $26.99
It's pretty darn easy to dig disco here – especially when the 2CD collection not only features a wonderful choice of selections, but also when those cuts are mixed together by DJ Nori and Muro The Beats! Each Japanese DJ gets a disc to themselves – and the shift in styles between them is great – with Muro maybe taking a heavier hand to his play with the grooves, and Nori creating a smoother sense of transition – all from rare cuts from the catalogs of Universal and Fantasy Records! Most of the work is late 70s, but there's also a few nice surprises from later years too – and titles include "Running Away" by Roy Ayers, "Happy Music" by The Blackbyrds, "I Love You More" by Rene & Angela, "Life Is Something Special" by Peech Boys, "The Sound Of Music" by Dayton, "I Need Your Lovin (M+M all night long mix)" by Teena Marie, "How To Groove" by Impact Of Brass, "Smoke" by Tribe, "Let's Go All The Way" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "Don't Fall In Love" by Alma Faye, "Brighter Days" by Vernon Burch, "Miracle Love" by Starpoint, "Finally (choice mix)" by CeCe Peniston, "The Whistle Song (EK mix fade)" by Frankie Knuckles, "I Wanna Rock You" by Giorgio Moroder, "Joyous" by Pleasure, "My Destiny" by Alton McClain & Destiny, "Circles (Joey Negro ext disco)" by Atlantic Starr, "Me & The Gang" by Bohannon, "Happy Feet" by Al Hudson & The Partners, "My First Mistake" by The Chi-Lites. and "You Got Me Runnin (M+M mix)" by Lenny Williams.

VariousMasterpiece Volume 23 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
A masterpiece of 80s groove – a totally sweet blend of overlooked treasures and classic numbers from the left side of the clubs – all wrapped up together as a mighty nice blend! The set digs a lot deeper than some of the earlier Masterpiece volumes – it has to, given the length of the much-loved series – and because of that, it's plenty fresh to our ears – with some great cuts we haven't heard in a long time – and a few others that are totally new this time around! Titles include "Over & Over" by Shalamar, "Knees" by Howard Johnson, "And You Know That" by The Jammers, "She's Mine" by CJ Anthony, "Rumors" by Kashif, "I'm So Crazy Bout You" by Starpoint, "Love Never Looked Better" by Trilark, "You're The Only One I Love" by Gnenn Jones, "Can't Break Loose" by Orlando Johnson & Trance, "Can't Let Love Pass Us By" by Cashflow, "Good Time" by Ago, "I Can't Help Myself" by Finesse, and "Don't Go" by Con Funk Shun.

VariousNighttime Lovers Vol 27 – A Fine Collection Of Disco Funk Classics Of The 80s ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Boogie, electro, and 80s groove – all sorted out nicely in this killer collection of ultra-rare cuts! As with previous volumes, this edition of Nighttime Lovers shows a side of the 80s that hardly got any play at the time – the more underground work by lesser-known artists, much of which was issued on the bigger labels, but failed to crack the charts! You'll recognize a few familiar names here, but even those are represented by under-discovered corners of their work – and in true early 80s spirit, most tracks here are heavy on beats and keyboards – yet still leave plenty of room for real soul vocals. Titles include "You Can't Have It" by Stargaze, "Back Up Against The Wall" by Rare Essence, "If My Lovin Makes You Hot" by Loose Ends, "Miracle Love" by Starpoint, "Just Chillin Out" by Bernard Wright, "Love In The Fast Lane" by Dynasty, "Knockin" by The Jones Girls, "Traffic Jammer" by Bar-Kays, "Devoted To You" by Cacique, "All Your Love" by Wreckin Crew, "Body Music" by Loose Ends, and "Rhythm Of Your Love" by Isabel Roberts.
