✨✧ Beggar & CoMonument ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
The great first album from Beggar & Co – a sweet UK soul trio from the early 80s, and one who grew from the ashes of the equally great Light Of The World!

Polydor/FTG, 1977. Used ... $5.99
The first album by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie group – and a cooker of a set that follows strongly from Gregg's previous Hot Butterfly gem!

A dancefloor classic! The album's the second by Gregg Diamond's Bionic Boogie, and head and shoulders above the rest – a sublime blend of soul and club that's hardly been matched again!

BloodstoneParty ... CD
T Neck/FTG, 1984. Used ... $6.99

Arista/FTG, 1984. Used ... $4.99
A funk, R&B and electro heavy set from trumpeter Tom Browne! There's a fair bit of beats on this set for Arista – no surprise, as Maurice Starr had a hand in the project – and the electro touches provide a real sense of contrast to some of Browne's earlier work! The best numbers ... (Jazz) read more CD

ChansonTogether We Stand (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ariola/FTG, 1979. Used ... $7.99
The cover's a bit unassuming, and almost makes this set look like some throwaway disco album – but Chanson's got a lot more to offer than that, and groove tightly here in a really great modern soul vein!

Columbia/FTG, 1985. Used 2CD ... $14.99
The best of a handful of albums that the one-time Prince bassist put out in the early 80s – a record that made a splash via the great Prince-penned "The Dance Electric" – possibly a blessing and a curse for AC, as Prince was so huge at the time that the record going public was ...
