Wally BadarouBack To Scales To-Night ... CD
Barclay/Expansion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $14.99
A great early solo album from Wally Badarou – done before his bigger global records on Island, but at a point when he'd already had great work in the studio, helping out some of the key sessions on the Nassau scene at the end of the 70s! Wally's as much a singer as he is a keyboardist here ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Ethel BeattyI Know You Care/It's Your Love ... 7-inch
Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1981. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hot slice of early 80s, post-disco soul produced by Roy Ayers! On "I Know You Care", Ethyl uses a sexy, breathy, Minnie Riperton kind of approach that accents the deep thumping bass, drums and claps, and the scratchy guitar very nicely! Overall the track has a bit poppier of a sound ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Expansion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
What a great track! "Say You Love Me Girl" has all the best parts of Breakwater – a cool guitar jangling on the intro, a tight jazzy finish on the Mizell-ish grooves, and sweet harmonies from the group on the vocals.

Overlooked 70s soul charmers from The Charisma Band – a group who definitely live up to their name!

Two overlooked gems from the great Norman Connors – back to back on a single 45!

Fantastic work from Lamont Dozier – the kind of upbeat soul that he's always done so well!

A wickedly sweet stepper from Eramus Hall – a cut that wasn't on the group's one and only album, and which may be one of our favorite as well!

One of the last great soul albums on the Westbound label! Eramus Hall have a vague P-Funk connection – and according to legend, the band were given their name by George Clinton, who had seen a building in Chicago named Eramus Hall – but the sound is a lot smoother than any of the P-Funk ...

RCA/Expansion (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $4.99
