✨✧ StarpointAll Night Long ... LP
Chocolate City, 1982. Very Good ... $9.99
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".

StarpointKeep On It ... CD
Chocolate City/PTG (France), 1981. Used ... $12.99
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". CD

StarpointWanting You ... CD
Chocolate City/PTG (France), 1981. Used ... $9.99
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

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.
