Big Fun (with bonus tracks)

CD (Item 627110) Solar/Sequel (UK), 1979 — Condition: Used
$11.99 ...

CD

A definite bit of Big Fun from Shalamar – totally tight and very much at the top of their game – making the transition from disco modes to leaner 80s groove, thanks to lots of great production and songwriting help from Leon Sylvers! Sylvers was really emerging as one of the key forces on Solar Records at the time – and he does a great job here of shaping the trio's strong vocals – which includes work by Howard Hewett and Jody Watley – both of whom are right at home on the album's groovers. Titles include their classic "The Second Time Around", plus "Girl", "The Right Time For Us", "Right In The Socket", and "Take Me to The River".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Shalamar

Look
Solar, 1983. Used
Given the fashions on the cover, the "look" is pretty darn silly – but the music is plenty darn great! The album's one of the best from the point when Shalamar could still serve things up with the best – a lean, mean, pop-focused approach to 80s groove that's produced with ... CD
Solar, 1980. Used

Deele

Street Beat
Solar/Right Stuff, 1983. Used
A funky nugget from Deele – an 80s group who were never afraid to use plenty of beats and keyboards in their groove! Deele were part of the new sound that the Solar Records label hit in the early 80s – more electro, more street soul, and with a growing level of rhythmic influences from ... CD

Lakeside

Rough Riders
Solar/Right Stuff, 1979. Used
Nothing rough about these riders – as the album's a sweet second effort from Lakeside – Ohio funk given a sweet LA glow, thanks to the Solar Records power duo of Leon Sylvers and Dick Griffey! The Midwest/Cali bridge is perfect here – as there's lots of raw roots given a tight ... CD
Sequel (UK), 1970s. Used
Nice collection of work by this classic seventies soul group on the Hot Wax label! The CD features both of their rare albums for the label, plus some non-LP single tracks and b-sides.

Midnight Star

Anniversary Collection
Solar/Right Stuff, 1999. Used
No parking on the dancefloor! Tasty batch of early 80s electro jams, by one of the groups who transformed funk into a wikki-wakki-wikki style during the Reagan years. Includes lots of tasty jammers like "Freak-a-Zoid", "No Parking On the Dancefloor", and "I've Been ... CD
Scepter/Sequel (UK), 1965. Used

Solar, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used
One of the biggest stars of the legendary Solar Records during the late 70s – the sweet voiced Carrie Lucas, best known for her catchy dancefloor groovers! At one level, Carrie was a west coast disco diva who rivaled the strengths of New York singers on some of the smaller labels – but ... CD

Your Precious Love
Sequel (UK), Early 70s/1991. Used
Fantastic compilation of 70's east coast soul sides by one of the greatest (and least recognized) female vocalists of the era. Originally recorded for the great All Platinum/Stang set of labels, now repackaged nicely, and with better notes than any U.S. reissue of Linda Jones' stuff. 18 great ... CD
Sequel (UK), Late 60s/1997. Used
Two early albums by Dionne on one CD! Long before she started calling her friends on the Psychic Network, she was laying down these picture perfect Bacharach/David ditties for the Scepter label. There have been lots of "best of" comps of her work, but they always leave out the good ... CD
