✨✧ CoffeeCasanova (long version) (double a-side) ... 12-inch
De-Lite, 1980. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A great remake of the original Ruby Andrews hit – done by a later Chicago soul group with a sweetly gliding feel! Coffee take their post-Lovelites sound and wrap it around a nice 80s club rhythm here – a mode that's a bit Philly at times, but also has some lush production that gives ...

✨✧ CoffeeSlip & Dip (double a-side promo) ... 12-inch
De-Lite, 1980. Very Good+ (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
The title track of one of the few albums cut by this Chicago dancefloor trio – done in a skipping clubby mode that's not entirely disco, not entirely soul. The track's playful enough to live up to the title – kind of a jaunty groover with nice back/forth action. (Soul) 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has ringwear.)

Crown Heights AffairDream World (with bonus tracks) ... CD
De-Lite/Octave (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
A tasty little disco album that's a lot better than you might think! In some ways, this might be Crown Heights Affair's most perfectly realized album – as it's got lots of long tracks that mix the group's always-tight instrumental style with a spacey soul sensibility that's quite captivating. ...

Crown Heights AffairDreaming A Dream ... LP
De-Lite, 1975. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A dream of a record from Crown Heights Affair – the group's classic first set, and maybe as fine a batch of early club work you could ever hope to find! Like so many of the east coast acts at the start of the disco generation, these guys are a well-trained funk ensemble, playing at a faster ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Crown Heights AffairThink Positive (with bonus tracks) ... CD
De-Lite/Octave (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
It's past the disco years, and Crown Heights Affair have emerged nicely – with a sweet modern soul style that's got a bit of 80s groove, and which shows a lot more soul than some of their earlier work! The band's singing in a sweet harmony style that works very well with the music – ... (Soul) read more CD

De-Lite, 1982. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Solid 80s grooving from Kool & The Gang – a group who inspired so many others in the early 80s soul generation, but who could still do it better than most of the rest! The style here is tight and smooth, but never too slick – and Deodato's giving the group some really great ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

De-Lite/Polygram, 1980. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A super-huge album for Kool & The Gang – and for good reason too! The set features their massive hit "Celebration" – a cut that firmly planted the group in the mainstream, and which keeps getting countless play over the decades – probably still earning them a ...

De-Lite (Germany), 1980. Very Good (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
The real star of this single is the jazzy instrumental flip, produced by Eumir Deodato like the rest of the album, with a wonderful breezy feel that reminds us a bit of nice Mizell Bros production. (Soul) 12-inch, Vinyl record

De-Lite, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Often overlooked amidst the bigger early albums by Kool & The Gang – but a totally solid record of funky stuff that's right up there with their best work!

As classic as classic Kool & The Gang can get!

A killer – one of those must-own tracks that we'd never be without! "Duji" is a totally great cut by Kool & The Gang, jazzy, warm, but still quite funky – with a warm rolling guitar part that's really unique. The cut was sampled famously by Gang Starr for "Jazz ...

A sweet set that's part of a big early 80s run from Kool & The Gang – a time that saw the funk legends really hitting the mainstream, and winning over a huge new audience in the process!

A landmark album of funky genius – and one of the first times a batch of funky 45s had ever been so tightly sewn into a full LP!

A shameless dancefloor cash-in move – but a record that's still pretty darn great as well!

One of the greatest Kool & The Gang albums ever – a monster live session that almost blows away their studio classics!

Fantastic live stuff from the classic early period of Kool & the Gang!
