Steve ArringtonSteve Arrington – Way Out 80 to 84 ... CD
Atlantic/Tummy Touch, Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 18.99
Fantastic funky soul from Steve Arrington – the drummer who got his start in Slave, then really exploded on his own with a host of great records in the 80s! This batch of tracks is from those key initial solo years – and the set not only features all the key cuts that Steve recorded for Atlantic, but also includes a number of never-heard jams that are from the same vintage, and issued here for the first time ever! Arrington's music has been out on the reissue market before, but never in a format that's as well-chosen, well-packed, and well-thought out as this one. Previously unreleased tracks include "Funk & Roll Junky", "Why", and "Mysterious Woman" – and other tracks include "Way Out", "Weak At The Knees", "Positive Power", "What Do You Want From Me", "Beddie Biey", "Hump To The Bump", "Without Your Love", "Tribute To John Coltrane", "Sugar Mama Baby", "Special FX From Mars", and "Summertime Lovin".

✨✧ Steve Arrington's Hall Of FameSteve Arrington's Hall Of Fame I ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great solo classic from Steve Arrington – who continued to make excellent music long after leaving Slave, thanks to records like this! The Hall Of Fame sound is almost a refinement of the earlier Slave groove – a bit more focused and stripped down for the 80s, with a definite emphasis on the basslines – and an approach to funk that's equally well-suited to pick up some ears from early hip hop listeners too! The whole thing comes off perfectly – tight, but never too commercial – and lean, but never with a fake "street" sort of sound to get in the way. Titles include "Nobody Can Beat You", "You Meet My Approval", "Speak With Your Body", "Weak At The Knees", "Beddie Biey", and "Way Out". CD

✨✧ Slave with Steve ArringtonDefinitive Groove Collection ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
A massive amount of work from Slave – a 2CD set that brings together almost all of their classic tracks, and which also features some post-Slave work from Steve Arrington too! The package definitely lives up to the Definitive Groove Collection title – and is filled with funky work of the sort the combo cut back in the day – mainstream funk that was usually a cut above most of their contemporaries, and which had an especially great kick on the drums! Titles include Slave tracks "Slide", "The Party Song", "Stellar Fungk", "Just A Touch Of Love", "Foxy Lady", "Thank You", "Stone Jam", "Watching You", "Son Of Slide", "Snap Shot", "Feel My Love", "Wait For Me", "Party Lites", "For The Love Of U", and "I'll Be Gone". Also includes Steve Arrington cuts "Feel So Real", "Homeboy", "Way Out", "Nobody Can Be You", "Weak At The Knees", "You Meet My Approval", and "Dancing In The Key Of Life". CD

SlaveHardness Of The World/Concept ... CD
Cotillion/Collectables, 1977/1978. Used ... $8.99
2 masterpieces of mainstream funk from Slave – back to back on one CD! Hardness Of The World is a wickedly tight batch of funk that helped set a new level for countless other groups to come! Slave have an impeccable groove here that's free from some of the over-indulgent jamming and too-bassy funk that wrecked so many other groups at the time – and instead, they've got a finely-honed sound that's all compressed around the rhythms, yet which also opens up spaciously with other soulful elements. The mellow cuts are as great as the harder numbers – and the set includes the great instrumental "Baby Sinister", plus "The Party Song", "Life Can Be Happy", "The World's On Hard", "We Can Make Love", and "Volcano Rupture". The Concept features Slave's first work with drummer Steve Arrington, who not only opened up their rhythmic concept, but also gave them a great new sound on lead vocals! Arrington's approach here is very much in the spirit of Slave's first 2 records – a lean, mean approach to funk that never goes too far over the top, but which also has a wide-open sound that's instantly appealing – and which makes Slave as much of a top-shelf soul act as they are a funky combo. Great all the way through – with a tightness and on-the-money sound few others can match – and featuring the cuts "We've Got Your Party", "The Way You Love Is Heaven", "Just Freak", "Coming Soon", "Drac Is Back", and "Stellar Fungk". 15 tracks in all.

SlaveSlave ... LP
Cotillion, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Far and away the band's best record! The album's got a fresh funk sound that takes an earlier 70s ensemble style and slicks it down a bit – but thanks to some great drum work by Tim Dozier (Steve Arrington had yet to join the band), and a subtle riffing bass style by Mark Adams, the band had a groove that was quite revolutionary, and which set them apart from the legions of funk imitators that were springing up at the end of the 70s. The high points of the album is the band's seminal "Slide", which is followed up with "Son Of Slide" – and both tracks have these amazing dark repetitive grooves that have really stood the test of time (thanks in part to a famous sample by Tribe Called Quest!) Other tracks include "You & Me", "Party Hardy", "Screw Your Wig On Tite", and "Separated". LP, Vinyl record album

Wax PoeticsIssue #62 – Giorgio Moroder/Ratatat – Summer 2015 ... Magazine
Wax Poetics, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
Electro soul pioneer and resurgent creative force Giorgio Moroder gets the front cover honor, and rightfully so – with classic electro-inspired Brooklyn instrumentalists Ratatat on the backside! This issue includes great features on both, plus pieces on Steve Arrington, Divine Styler, Van Hunt, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the photography of soul jazz hero Les McCann, the too often underappreciated female voices of dancefloor soul legends Chic, and lots more! The always photo rich style of Wax Poetics is in full force here, too. One of the best issues in a while! Magazine
