Great work from the wonderful Rockie Robbins – a smooth soul singer who cut some great sides at the start of the 80s, but who hardly ever gets his due!

Motown/PTG (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy ... $10.99
An overlooked Motown gem from T-Boy Ross – a self-produced set that's filled with loads of 70s mellow soul moments! Ross begins the set by covering Marvin Gaye's "I Want You" – and there's definitely a similar vibe to the record – that kind of warmer grooving that Leon ... (Soul) read more CD

PTG (France), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock

StarpointIt's So Delicious ... CD
PTG/Vinyl Masterpiece, 1983. Used ... $6.99
A bit tighter and more conventional soul than earlier work by Starpoint, but still pretty darn great too – and great proof that the group were more on top of their bag than other funky combos of the type!

Casablanca/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy ... $10.99
Lean and grooving funk steeped soul from Starpoint – with more of a lively, Earth-based instrumental groove than some of the more drum machine and synth soaked albums that beamed out of the Starpoint spaceship later on in the 80s!
