StarpointIt's So Delicious ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

✨✧ StarpointAll Night Long ... LP
Chocolate City, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

VariousDisco Giants 4 – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1980s. Used 2CD ... $13.99
80s grooves galore – a set that's more boogie, electro, and keyboard-oriented than you might guess from the "disco" in the title! There's no shimmering strings or Studio 54-styled rhythms – and instead, most tracks are from that great space between indie and mainstream soul in the early 80s – when new rhythms were bubbling up from the underground into the charts – and labels both big and small were taking good chances on the new styles of music! This 2CD package is filled with plenty of wonderful tracks from those years – including a bunch that don't often get reissued. Titles include "Reach Up" by Toney Lee, "Private Party" by Bobby Nunn, "Object Of My Desire" by Starpoint, "Sexomatic" by Bar-Kays, "Save Your Love For No 1" by Rene & Angela, "I've Got To Find A Way" by Zena Dejonay, "Is This The Future" by Fatback, "Sound Of Music (extended rmx)" by Dayton, "Burnin Up" by Michael Jonzun, "Hey DJ" by World Famous Supreme Team, "Hit & Run" by Total Contrast, and "I'll Keep On Loving You" by Princess.

VariousMasterpiece Volume 20 – The Ultimate Disco Funk Collection ... CD
PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
The twentieth volume in this wonderful series – one we've been trusting for years for the best in 80s groove! The music here is all from the post-disco years – awash in sweet keyboards and boogie basslines – all stepping along at a pace that's mostly midtempo, with a groove that's much nicer than most of the mainstream club work of the time! The collection features a few bigger names, but most of the numbers are the kind of cuts that bubbled underground back in the day – and still sound super fresh all these many years later. Titles include "Can't Get Close To You" by Nicci Gable, "Stay With Me Tonight" by Richard Jon Smith, "Forever & Ever" by Juicy, "Don't Throw Away Your Love (ext)" by One Touch, "Pull My Love String" by Doc Shaw, "Sexy Body" by Magic Lady, "Liberated Woman" by Neddy Smith, "Stop Playing On Me" by Vikki Love with Nuance, "Fox On the Run" by Sky Trane, "We Can Go To Your House" by Maurice Messiah, and "Do What You Wanna Do" by Starpoint.
