StarpointIt's All Yours ... LP
Elektra, 1984. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Massive work from Starpoint – one of the few groups from the 80s groove generation who could tighten up their act, yet still keep all the best elements of their music firmly in place! The album's got a feel that's a bit more polished than their first few records – but not much more, and usually in a way that helps the group shake free from some of the cliches that were holding back some of the more groove-centric acts in their generation. The lead vocals from Renee Diggs are wonderful throughout – soaring with enough energy to match the rhythms on the upbeat numbers, and sounding even sweeter on the album's few mellow cuts. Titles include "Am I Still The One", "Satisfy Me Lover", "Breakout", "This Is So Right", "It's All Yours", "Always On My Mind", and a cover of Bill Withers' "Use Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo stamp & light wear.)

✨✧ StarpointIt's So Delicious ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 an index label on front.)

✨✧ StarpointRestless/Sensational (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1985/1987. New Copy 2 CDS ... Out Of Stock
Two later Starpoint albums – back to back in a single set, with bonus tracks too! Restless is great work from Starpoint – 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". The second album features Sensational sounds from Starpoint – an overlooked set from 80s, and one that has the group working with contemporary soul maestro Preston Glass! Glass brings in his own approach to beats and keyboards, and helps the group find a style that's got lots of lean bounce, and a style that maybe picks up a bit of the currents that were touching mainstream soul from the world of hip hop – almost a pre-New Jack Swing approach at times. Titles include "He Wants My Body", "DYBO", "Prove It Tonight", "Sensational", "Another Night", "Touch Of Your Love", and "Second Chance". 2CD set features lots of bonus tracks – including "Object Of My Desire (voc 12")", "What You Been Missin (voc male version)", "Object Of My Desire (inst)", "Restless (voc ext rmx)", "Restless (dub)", "He Wants My Body (voc ext rmx)", "Another Night (dub)", "Touch Of Your Love (voc ext rmx)", and "Touch Of Your Love (dub)".
