Tabu, 1978. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Anacostia make the move to Tabu Records for this sweet second set – and they seem to have picked up more of a groove along the way!

Tabu, 1977. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Two classic club-driven tunes by this late 70s funk ensemble! "Lovin" is a strong disco number – female vocals in the lead, and lots of swirling grooves that go on for over 7 minutes in this mix!

One of the few full albums ever cut by the great Sharon Ridley – a hell of a great singer from the east coast scene, and one with the fullness of the best club divas of the time – but an approach that goes way way deeper overall!
