✨✧ Ron BanksTruly Bad ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the original Dramatics, singer Ron Banks strikes out here on his own – a slept on gem from the early 80s! The set's in a similar modern soul mode to LJ Reynolds, who also worked with him in the group, and was having a bit of a solo career of his own at the time. It's got sort of a D-T ...

Beggar & CoMonument ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1981. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The great first album from Beggar & Co – a sweet UK soul trio from the early 80s, and one who grew from the ashes of the equally great Light Of The World! The style here is similar to LOTW's variation on American funk of the time – particularly the tight blend of jazz and funk they ... (Soul) read more CD

Blue MagicMagic # ... CD
Mirage/FTG, 1983. Used ... $11.99
A lost later set from Blue Magic – recorded after their modern soul album for Capitol, and done in a sweetly gliding mellow groove!

✨✧ BrothersDon't Stop Now (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great stuff – and the kind of group that would be easy to overlook if the tracks weren't so good! The Brothers were clearly some sort of a studio project designed to cash in on the disco craze – and they included Bhen Lanzaroni on keyboards, who'd also recorded a bit on his own as a ...

✨✧ Keni BurkeChanges (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
A standout solo moment from the amazing Keni Burke – an artist who's come a long way from his youthful start in the 5 Stairsteps!

Keni BurkeYou're The Best (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1982. Used ... $8.99
A really wonderful album from Keni Burke – recorded around the same time as his classic Changes set, and in some ways even better than that record!

Atlantic/FTG, 1985. Used ... $9.99
A classic from Jenny Burton – only the singer's second album as a solo act, but already a set that has Jenny hitting on all burners!

Columbia/FTG, 1977. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
The cover has Tyrone Davis in a very diverse crowd, but the record is pure Davis all the way through – that great blend of bluesy roots and classier soul that made most of his 70s records so wonderful! The approach here is even more careful and well put-together than some of Tyrone's last ... (Soul) read more CD

Earth Wind & Fire hits the 80s – and never misses a beat! Turns out that the group's older style of jazzy funk was a perfect fit for the boogie-styled rhythms of the post-disco era – heard here on the megahit "Let's Groove", and followed up by a beautiful batch of ... (Soul) read more CD
