✨✧ Crown Heights AffairDance Lady Dance ... LP
De-Lite, 1979. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Super-tight work from Crown Heights Affair – a group who've added in a bit of strings to their sound, but still have the same fantastic funky sound as their early work!

De-Lite/Unidisc (Canada), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tasty little disco album that's a lot better than you might think!

De-Lite, 1975. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

De-Lite/Unidisc, 1978. Used ... $11.99
The Kay-Gees are burning bright with plenty of kilowatts here – in that razor-sharp approach to funk that made the group one of the best of their generation – able to strongly step on the dancefloor, but without losing any of the rawness of their funky 45 years!

De-Lite/Big Break (UK), 1982. Used ... 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 CD

✨✧ Kool & The GangBest Of Kool & The Gang ... LP
De-Lite, Early 70s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
This one's called a "best of", but it's really one of the group's first albums, and it pulls together a host of great early tracks, some of which were only ever on singles! The record's got a shiny gold cover, and it's rare as hen's teeth! Titles include "The Penguin", "Le ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing in the yellow cover, with a name in pen on the front, back and labels. Vinyl has a small mark that clicks for a few spins during "The Penguin" but plays fine otherwise.)

De-Lite, 1984. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Sweet 80s sounds from the legendary Kool & The Gang – one of the key classics from the second chapter of the group – when their lineup and sound were a lot leaner than before, and they managed to cross over big to a much wider audience than before!

A shameless dancefloor cash-in move – but a record that's still pretty darn great as well! You all know the big title cut "Ladies Night", so we won't bother to describe it – but we can say that the group wisely hooked up with Deodato, who produced, mixed, and even played ... (Soul) read more CD

It's the mid 70s, and Kool & Co not only keep the funky groove up, but also expand their style into a moogy style that adds a nice dimension of spacey soul to their rich palette of funk.

De-Lite, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pivotal album from Kool & The Gang – a record that pushes the group past their roots as a funky 45 combo, and into larger, more righteous territory overall!

One of the best early Kool & The Gang singles! "The Penguin" is a killer – with this bassy intro that riffs around itself so much you'd think it was knitting a sweater!
