Steve ArringtonJammin National Anthem ... LP
Atlantic, 1986. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A bit more pop than some of Steve Arrington's earlier work, but proof that Mr Slave could still come up with a groove when he wanted! The record's got a quirky approach that's almost in line with later versions of P-Funk – but Arrington's never as goofy, and mostly lets the gimmicks come out in the titles and choruses, while keeping things relatively straight on the rest of the tune. Craig Cooper plays a fair bit of guitar and keyboards on the set, and titles include "Jammin National Anthem", "Holiday", "Teenage Jazz", "One Of A Kind Paradise", "Everybody's Got To Be Free", "Homeboy", and "Like It Loud". LP, Vinyl record album

SlaveShow Time ... LP
Cotillion, 1981. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Wonderful work from Slave – an album that's still got the hard funk of earlier years, yet which also has the group sweetening up their sound in a great sort of 80s groove way! Most tracks kick along with that great rolling bass sound that the group practically invented – and which has been their everlasting legacy to mainstream funk – and Steve Arrington's still in the group on lead vocals, really hitting some soaring notes that help the tunes groove even more. Titles include "Party Lites", "Snap Shot", "Smokin", "Wait For Me", "Funken Town", and "Steal Your Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

✨✧ SlaveConcept ... LP
Cotillion, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key early classic from Slave – as the set features the group'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". LP, Vinyl record album
