CD

✈

The first album by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie group – and a cooker of a set that follows strongly from Gregg's previous Hot Butterfly gem! Luther Vandross isn't on board this time around, but the overall groove is still totally great – upbeat, soaring, and put together with a jazzy undercurrent that really keeps things interesting – far more so than most other mainstream disco sets of the time! Brad Baker – of B Baker Chocolate Company – handled the arrangements – and the grooves spin out nicely from Diamond's keyboards, and a tight mix of strings and jazzy horns. Vocals are from the soulful trio of Gwen Guthrie, Ullanda McCullough, and Zachary Sanders – and titles include "Dance Little Dreamer", "Risky Changes", "Boogie Boo", "We Must Believe In Music", "Feel Like Dancing", and "Don't Lose The Number". CD features 2 bonus tracks – 12" extended mixes of "Dance Little Dreamer" and "Risky Changes".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

James Brown

Try Me!
Polydor, 1959. Used
Massive early work by James Brown – one of his first few albums for King, and a soulful delight that hits plenty hard all the way through! The sound here is razor-sharp – still very much in the R&B mode that Brown began in the 50s, but already showing this sense of edge and ... CD

Epic/FTG, 1986. Used
Poppy passion from Krystol – a sweet 80s trio with a definite way with a hook! The set's got a well-balanced mainstream sound – one that helps the vocals find a fullness right away, either on the leads or harmonies – both woven together over the top of the tight, beat-heavy ... CD

Stroke

Stroke
Mirage/FTG (France), 1985. Used
The bass gets plenty of stroke on this mid 80s set – a record that hangs somewhere between 80s groove and Prince-era funk – but with a bit of quiet storm feel at times too! The tunes are pretty lean, not nearly as excessive as they could be – and often, a key instrumental element ... CD

Spank

Spank You!
FTG, 1985. Used
Great work here from Spank – a group with a much warmer groove than some of the "spank" records you might know from the disco scene of a few years before! This time around, the rhythms are mostly midtempo – tight-stepping grooves with lots of 80s soul touches intact – a ... CD
Motown/FTG, 1982. Used
An overlooked Motown nugget from the early 80s – the smoking debut of Gene Van Buren! Gene's a fully-formed artist right from the get-go – writing and producing the set with a rich, mature groove that's totally great – some of the upbeat funky soul tracks that were Motown's ... CD

Second Image

Second Image
Polydor/Finesse (UK), 1983. Used
Sweet electro soul from Second Image – a group who manage to mix in plenty of beats and keyboards to their groove, yet never let the music get too cold! There's a playful sort of feeling to most numbers here – a style that's a bit different than US electro of the time, with less of a ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1984. Used
Classic RCA soul from Glenn Jones – exactly the sort of record that made him a real standout back in the 80s! The set's got a nice little bounce, but it's quite far from chart soul – more in the direction of some of that great underground soul of the time, bubbling under with bits of ... CD
