Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the less-remembered acts of the Solar Records west coast soul scene – but a great one too – and a group who step out beautifully on this killer set, thanks to great production help from The Whispers!

Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $22.99

DynastyAdventures In The Land Of Music ... LP
Solar, 1980. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Lots of musical adventures here – most of them in that tightly-romping style that made Dynasty so great back in the day – almost a fusion of older sweet group soul with some of the more bottom-driven modes forged by the Solar label!

DynastyYour Piece Of The Rock ... LP
Solar, 1979. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Snapping grooves with a nice sort of electro undercurrent –- all the handiwork of Leon Sylvers, who also plays bass and drums on the record – and really helps Dynasty find their groove!

A gem of a record from the same Pernambuco early 70s scene that gave us Lula Cortes, Ze Ramalho, Geraldo Azevedo, and Alceu Valenca!

One of Carrie's crossover gems from the late 70s – the smoother side of the Solar Records groove – definitely aimed at the clubs, but with a nicely soulful undercurrent overall!

Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from the Solar Records label – a real powerhouse of 80s soul, but one who's talents weren't able to put Cat Miller on the top of the charts! That lack is hardly reflected in the sound of the album, though – as the whole thing is as tight and filled with crossover ... (Soul) read more CD

Solar, 1982. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key album in the legendary 80s run of Shalamar – and a set that gets a tremendous amount out of a very stripped-down sound! The sound of Shalamar builds from a bit of bass, some snapping drums, waves of keyboards, and especially great vocals – warm and sweet, but never too commercial ...

Very catchy work from Shalamar – a trio who were one of the most hit-oriented acts in the Solar Records stable – but who really hit their crossover heights on this mid 80s set!

Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The sound's not entirely mellow – as LA's Solar Records was a label that was pretty dedicated to a groove – but the set does mix in some of the label's great midtempo cuts alongside its better-remembered groovers – all in a great summation of the sound and style that made the ...
