StarpointIt's So Delicious ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A bit tighter and more conventional soul than earlier work by Starpoint, but still pretty darn great too – and great proof that the group were more on top of their bag than other funky combos of the type! Renee Diggs is strongly out front on vocals throughout – lending her sweet sound to the flurry of electro keys and beats that make up most of the instrumentation here. The instrumentation's almost got some echoes of the Minneapolis funky soul scene at the times, but echoes the group's older sound at other points – and although a few tracks are quite hook heavy, they're never too poppish or cloying. Titles include "Behind Your Back", "Don't Be So Serious", "Put Your Love On Me", "It's So Delicious", "Let Go", and "I Got The Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp and a partially removed hype sticker.)

✨✧ StarpointRestless ... LP
Elektra, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
Starpoint's one of those groups that always seem to be working a notch or two above most of their 80s contemporaries – and even on this mid-decade set, they're still going strong – bouncing around in upbeat rhythms, catchy hooks, and well-balanced instrumentation. Renee Diggs' vocals still sound great on top of the grooves, and even though the overall sound is moving more towards the charts at the time, Starpoint still keep away from ever getting too commercial. Titles include "Emotions", "Object Of My Desire", "See The Light", "Till The End Of Time", "Don't Take Your Love Away", "Restless", and "What You Been Missing". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMasterpiece Volume 18 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
Clubby funk galore – as this great series keeps on going strong! The tunes here are all early 80s, and all have a tight post-disco approach to the dancefloor – that great style that we also know as 80s groove – with a mix of modern soul, electro, and other underground modes bubbling through in the rhythms from time to time. Most tracks are by familiar artists, but aren't exactly hits – just well-remembered grooves from the time – with cuts that include "Just Like Dreamin" by Terri Wells, "Too Much Too Fast" by Vera Brown & The Rich Girls, "Love Is On The One" by Xavier, "Dance Floor (edit)" by Zapp, "Gimme A Little Sign" by Kenny James, "Baby I Want You Back" by Tavares, "Cutie Pie" by One Way, "Wanting You" by Starpoint, "Wide Open Up Your Love" by Wreckin Crew, "Lover In You" by Sugar Hill Gang, and "Together Forever" by Intrigue.

A diverse batch of 80s soul groovers – with great tunes by superstars and lesser-remembered soul heroes and heroines alike! It's jam-packed 2CD set of tunes, many of which were no doubt popular in their heyday, but they're anything but ubiquitous these days. It's got a nice mix of styles, too, with some 70s soul jazz influenced numbers – some of them by genuine 70s soul jazz figures – plus some leaner synth funk flavored tunes, bouncing clubby tunes, breezy duets and more. 24 tracks on 2CDs: "Whatcha' Gonna Do" by Average White Band, "Lies" by Shock, "Emotions' by Starpoint, "Feelin' Free" by Jermaine Jackson, "Starstruck" by Patti Austin, "Chillin' Out"by Curtis Hairston, "Love In Your Eyes" by Vaneese Thomas, "I'm In Love With You" by Koko-Pop, "I'm Freaky" by O'Bryan, "Palm Of Your Hand" by Peabo Bryson & D'Atra Hicks and more.

PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Club-ready soul from the dawn of the 80s – a time when synths were becoming an integral part of the vibe, but lively 70s influences were still a vital piece – with nicely grooving tunes by Starpoint, Dynasty, Melba Moore, First Love, Blue Moderne, Mtune, Heatwave, High Fashion and more! This volume has 13 cuts, all from the first couple years of the decade, and it runs more than an hour long – so there's a lot to love here! Most of the tracks have genuinely soulful vocals, and a nicely elongated vibe guaranteed to keep the dancefloor moving – with "Bring Your Sweet Loving Back" by Starpoint, "Never Say Never" by Melba Moore, "Strokin'" by Dynasty, "Melodies Of Love" by Pink Rhythm, "Distant Destiny" by Zoom, "So You Wanna Be A Star" by Mtume, :"Do That Again" by Blue Moderne and more.

✨✧ VariousNighttime Lovers Vol 19 – A Fine Collection Of Disco Funk Classics Of The 80s ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime 80s grooves – a wealth of wonderful cuts that really represent the best aspects of mainstream soul music in the decade after the 70s – tracks that are definitely leaner than a few years before, and which use all their best energy to step to the dancefloor with some tight hooks and surprisingly soulful vocals! Most of the names here are bigger artists, but represented by overlooked gems – the kind of lesser-known cuts that have always made each volume in this series a delight. Titles include "Emergency" by The Whispers, "I Just Can't Do It Without Your Love" by Carrie Lucas, "I'm Still Missing Your Love" by SOS Band, "Love Follows" by Steven Dante, "Young Love" by Cuca, "I Want You Closer" by Starpoint, "Promise Me" by Dayton, "Baby Don't Say Maybe" by Blue Feather, "New Love" by Rose Royce, "Green Light" by Mtume, and "I Keep Comin Back To You" by The Chi-Lites.
