Sugarhill Gang8th Wonder ... LP
Sugar Hill, 1981. Sealed ... $14.99
One of the first full albums from the Sugarhill Gang – and a good sampling of their early tracks for Sugarhill! Includes the group's classic remake of "Apache" – complete with breaks stolen from the Incredible Bongo Band – plus the cuts "Funk Box" and "On The Money", which both have a compressed 80s groove soul sort of approach. Also features "Showdown", a classic old school battle track, recorded with the Furious 5 – plus the cuts "8th Wonder", "Hot Hot Summer Day", and "Kick It Live From 9 to 5". LP, Vinyl record album

Sugarhill Gang8th Wonder (vocal, inst) (Test Pressing) ... 12-inch
Sugar Hill, 1980. Very Good ... $24.99
Super rare test press of the classic groover from the Sugarhill Gang – one based around the excellent "Daisy Lady" sample from 7th Wonder! The track makes great use of the original's brassy horns – inflecting a bright, almost Latiny finish on the tune – all to set the stage for some great rhymes from the crew, and contains the sought after instrumental! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Test pressing in a Sugar Hill sleeve. Labels have a record pool stamp.)

✨✧ Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandScorpio/8th Wonder ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $8.99 9.98
The Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band take on two classics from the old school – both with their trademark mix of steel drums and funk! "Scorpio" is the classic jam from Dennis Coffey – taken in a way here that's completely different, as the drums take on the guitar parts – and other percussion creates a massively skittish groove! "8th Wonder" is the classic track from Sugarhill Gang – but done here without any vocals at all, which leaves more fantastic focus on the bursts of sound that drive the tune, and that wonderful hook that hangs all the way through! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Candi StatonNightlites (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sugar Hill/BMG (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $12.99
An obscure later set from Candi Staton – done on the heels of her bigger club hits, but in a very different mode! The style is very much in an 80s groove sort of bag – and Candi's backed on the album by the Sugarhill Gang and West Street Mob, who both give the whole thing a nice east coast indie vibe – yet production is also by her frequent studio partner Dave Crawford, who keeps things right with the best sort of southern soul currents alongside the grooves – which, given Candi's vocals, may well make the set the strongest soul record released on Sugarhill. The mix has an appealing indie sort of feel, and Candi's vocals are very upfront in the mix, even on the more electric tunes – and titles include "Love & Be Free", "The Sunshine Of Our Love", "Hurry Sundown", "Tender Hooks", "Count On Me", and "Suspicious Minds". CD features bonus extended versions of "Suspicious Minds" and "Count On Me". CD

VariousEverybody Wants Some – Music From The Motion Picture (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Rhino, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 28.98
A sweet little soundtrack – filled with the sort of late 70s/early 80s gems you'd expect from this movie by Richard Linklater! The film's been called a sequel to Dazed & Confused, and the music is too – classic tracks pulled from roughly the same time period as the music used on the mixtape in Guardians Of The Galaxy, but maybe a bit more open-ended stylistically, too – with a lineup that includes "Cars" by Gary Numan, "Driver's Seat" by Sniff N The Tears, "Good Times Roll" by The Cars, "I'm Bad I'm Nationwide" by ZZ Top, "Maybe I'm A Fool" by Eddie money, "Whip It" by Devo, "Bad Girls" by Donna Summer, "Everybody Wants Some" by Van Halen, "Pop Muzik" by M, "Rough Boys" by Pete Townshend, "I Want You To Want Me (live)" by Cheap Trick, "Because The Night" by Patti Smith, "My Sharona" by The Knack, "Heart Of Glass" by Blondie, "Rapper's Delight" by Sugarhill Gang, "Every 1's A Winner" by Hot Chocolate, "Heartbreaker" by Pat Benatar, "Alternative Ulster" by Stiff Little Fingers, and "Let's Get Serious" by Jermaine Jackson. LP, Vinyl record album
(2LP pressing features 8 bonus tracks!)
