A group that you may not know by name – but which features some top-shelf production at the helm – work by both Fred Wesley and Azar Lawrance, plus supervision from one of the Mizell brothers! With all that talent on board, the record's way more than just another obscure one-off funk set on a major label – as some cuts echo the sharp funk that Wesley was using with the Horny Horns at the time, and others have a bit of the cosmic currents from Azar's own records – a blend of jazz funk and fusion, honed into razor-sharp grooves with a bit of an 80s vibe! The whole thing's great – a real lost gem from that brief stint when Elektra Records was putting out some real killers in the soul department – and titles include "Unfair Affair", "We'll Be Dancin", "Mysteryoso", "Game Of Life", "Come Into My Life", "For You", and "Get Up". CD features bonus tracks – "Get Up (12" disco version)" and "We'll Be Dancin (12" disco version)".  © 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.

Evelyn Champagne King will always be most popularly remembered for her massive disco pop crossover hits of the late 70s, but she progressed really nicely throughout the 80s, keeping up with the evolving dancefloor soul sounds of the times – and Face To Face is a lean, clubby electro soul and ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1982. Used
Seminal modern soul from the great Leon Ware – an artist who had a great influence on the sound of mellow Motown in the 70s, but who's sounding even better here in an early 80s California groove! Leon's smooth, sophisticated, and very much his own man on the set – unabashedly upfront ... CD

Human Body

Cosmic Round Up
Elektra/Finesse (UK), 1985. Used
There's a Roger Troutman groove all over this album from Human Body – no surprise, since Roger plays guitar, keyboards, and bass – and even produced the album himself! The style's kind of a left-of-center take on the Zapp groove of the time – a bit rougher and more street-consciou ... CD
Elektra, 1991. Used
A much better record than we want to admit, with Natalie moving towards jazzy numbers and standards, for a blockbuster Grammy winning effort. Her voice stands up well to the mainstream polish, and even the creepy "duet" with her father is enjoyable. 22 tracks in all, including "The ... CD
Prelude/Big Break (UK), 1979. Used
A spacey little set of clubby grooves from European disco honchos Jacques Fred Petrus and producer Mauro Malavasi – with lead vocals from the legendary Leroy Burgess! The tracks here are all quite long and building – very much in the classic Prelude Records mode, and with a fair dose ... CD

Elektra, 1990. Used
A big one for Norman Cook – caught here in his post-Housemartins, pre-Fatboy Slim years – working here in a playful blend of beats and samples that really point the way towards his later chart fame to come! The tracks here have a simple elegance that might have sounded dated a few ... CD
Epic/Legacy, 1970. Used
