LA Connection – Now Appearing

LP (Item 13385) MCA, 1982 — Condition: Very Good
Also available
LA Connection — LA Connection – Now Appearing ... CD 13.99

An excellent set of 80s groove – produced here by Larry Blackmon, with a very Cameo-styled touch – under a title that definitely shows the big shift in the funk scene over to the west coast at the start of the 80s! LA Connection really have a great way of blending things together – with a bit of that stronger keyboard mode that Cameo, Zapp, and other groups were using at the time – but also plenty of bass at the bottom, and nicely crisp production – and just the right balance of mellow soul tracks and funky numbers to give the album the right sort of depth. Titles include "Promise Me", "Come Into My Heart", "I'll Find A Way","Shake It", "Get It Up", "Jealousy", and "Burn Me Up".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Shine On Me
MCA, 1980. Very Good
A great batch of boogie from One Way – one of the few late 70s funky combos who were especially well suited to make the transition to 80s groove!

MCA, 1981. Very Good
A great little set from One Way – post disco Detroit dancefloor soul of the first order!

The debut album from Stargard – a set that turned the trio into strong soul stars, after a brief and mistaken role in the film Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band!

The second album from Shuggie Otis – a wild and wooly batch of grooves that really stretches out the sound from the first!

One of The Artistics' most beautiful albums for Brunswick – and the one that includes the title song that was perhaps their greatest single!
