Eighties LadiesLadies Of The Eighties (with bonus track) ... CD
Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $15.99
A legendary project from Roy Ayers – and a record that's almost as in-demand as his classic Ramp album! The Eighties Ladies were a hip vocal quartet, with the soulful Sylvia Striplin on lead – and they work here in a mix of perfect Ayers-styled grooves – often using female harmonies in just the same way as Ramp, but coming across with a style that's a bit more pointed at the clubs, and very much in the same mode as Striplin's classic solo album too! Roy brings plenty of jazzy undercurrents to the set – those sinister shapes and changes that always make his music so great – and Edwin Birdsong's help with arrangements ensure that there's some suitably offbeat twists and turns, which really keeps things interesting. Titles include the classic break "Turned On To You", plus vocal and instrumental versions of "Ladies Of The Eighties", and the tracks "Tell Him", "It's Easy To Move", "I Knew That Love", "He Is Mine Forever", and "Sing Me". CD also features the bonus 7" version of "Turned On To You". CD

VariousBest Of Uno Melodic Records ... CD
Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic tribute to one of the greatest soul labels of the 80s – the groundbreaking Uno Melodic imprint, started by soul legend Roy Ayers as a showcase for some of his more creative projects! The vibe here follows perfectly from Roy's classic late 70s work on Polydor – and his famous album with Ramp – with a wicked blend of jazz, soul, and funk – all given a very sophisticated, righteous spin – with rhythms and instrumentation that are way different than the mainstream! That doesn't mean that these tunes aren't groovers – just that many were so far ahead of their time, they've only gotten full acclaim in recent decade – thanks to new discovery by DJs and hip hoppers, who've sampled more than a few of these cuts. The whole thing is wonderful – with a strong focus on some of the female singers that Roy was working with – and titles include "Remember To Remember" by Rick Holmes, "It's Your Love" and "I Know You Care" by Ethel Beatty, "Interlude" by Justo Almario, "Baby Don't You Know (inst)" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Just Keep My Boogie" by Jaymz Bedford, "Everybody" and "Chicago" by Roy Ayers, "Give Me Your Love" and "You Can't Turn Me Away" by Sylvia Striplin, and the cuts "Sing Me", "I Knew That Love", "Ladies Of The Eighties", and "Turned On To You" by Eighties Ladies.

✨✧ VariousGroove Diggers – Mellow & Emotional – Give You What You Want (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Underground soul that goes deeper than most – a collection of some of the hippest tracks from the excellent Groove Diggers reissue series from Japan – a treasure trove of under-discovered indie soul albums from the American scene of the 70s! These tracks are funky, but aren't straight funk overall – and they're often upbeat, but aren't the usual disco and club rarities – instead, they're tight tracks by groups working deep in the underground, but who really know how to craft a great tune – the sort of music you might normally hear from bigger names like Curtis Mayfield or Roy Ayers, but much more obscure overall, given the limited, often local release of the original albums. Some tracks have been favorites in the rare groove scene for years, others are much lesser-known – and the CD features 17 tracks that include "It Ain't Fair" by Tomorrow's People, "I Was Born To Love You" by Timeless Legend", "Anything" by Touch Of Class, "Twenty Four Hours A Day" by Messengers Incorporated, "My Girl Friday" by Lil Albert, "Everything I Want I See In You" by JR Bailey, "All I've Got To Give" by Lemuria, "In My Life" by Matthew Larkin Cassell, "If We Took The Time" by Ted Coleman, "Let's Get It Back Together" by Piranha, "Nothing Can Stop My Loving You" by 1619 Badass Band, "You Can't Turn Me Away" by Sylvia Striplin, "Why Don't We Fall In Love" by John Valenti, "Phalene" by Placebo, and "Here I Go" by Harris & Orr.

(Part of the great Groove Diggers series!)

✨✧ Donna McGheeMake It Last Forever ... CD
Red Greg/We Want Sounds (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A holy grail, and one of the only records ever cut by Donna McGhee – an incredibly soulful club singer who worked with both Patrick Adams and Roy Ayers! This album's her legendary side for the team of Adams and Greg Carmichael – and it's got a sweet and mellow groove that's unlike anything else we can think of – clubby, but not disco – funky, but not deep funk either – a really unique mode that's hit by very few artists at the time! The record's definitely in the vein of Sylvia Striplin and Pam Todd – but is somehow even more soulful and better put together than work by those two singers – really consistent all the way through, with an undeniable sort of depth. The album includes a killer 6 and a half minute version of Donna's classic "It Ain't No Big Thing", plus the tight groover "Mr Blindman", and the cuts "Do As I Do", "I'm A Love Bug", and "Make It Last Forever". CD
Also available Make It Last Forever ... LP 29.99
