✨✧ Ethel BeattyI Know You Care/It's Your Love ... 7-inch
Uno Melodic/Expansion (UK), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A hot slice of early 80s, post-disco soul produced by Roy Ayers! On "I Know You Care", Ethyl uses a sexy, breathy, Minnie Riperton kind of approach that accents the deep thumping bass, drums and claps, and the scratchy guitar very nicely! Overall the track has a bit poppier of a sound ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

RCA/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A massive jam from Keni Burke – easily his greatest tune ever, and the kind of track we'd hardly have imagined back when he was a little tyke in the Five Stairsteps! The track's got a thumping, stomping kind of groove that really gets going from the start – and the vocal hook is a ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

A mighty sweet groove from Chuck Cissel – a singer who's got a way of soaring with the groove – which is an approach that works perfectly here! "Don't Tell Me You're Sorry" has this vibe that's maybe a bit more upbeat than the message of the lyrics – but that's a-OK ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Early genius from Margie Joseph – and a tune that's got this bold sound that's maybe a bit different than some of her later work!

Two of the best cuts ever from this underground club act of the 70s – back to back on a 12" single!
