Re-FlexPolitics Of Dancing (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Cherry Pop (UK), 1983. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
Reflex never had much of a long recorded legacy – but they certainly made their mark with this classic album of 80s electro pop! The tunes follow somewhere in the territory of contemporaries like Human League or Ultravox, but also maybe have a quirkier vibe that's more in the spirit of the indie scene – especially in the ways the keyboard lines and vocals take on all these odd inflections – maybe a nod towards soulful styles, but also a mode that quickly fell out of favor overseas – but which is also what makes the whole thing so completely charming! Titles include the big title hit "The Politics Of Dancing" – and "Hitline", "Hurt", "Couldn't Stand A Day", "Jungle", "Sensitive", "Keep In Touch", "Praying To The Beat", and "Pointless". 2CD version features lots of bonus tracks – "True Lust", "Hurt (12" Pete Smith emotional mix UK version)", "What You Deserve", "The Politics Of Dancing (12" ext mix)", "Cruel World (12" ext mix)", "Praying To The Beat (12" ext mix)", "Flex It (12" ext mix)", "Hit Line (12" ext mix)", "Cut It (12" ext mix)", "Hurt (12" John Luongo emotional mix US version)", "Politics Of Dancing (US 7" version)", "Flex It (7" echo mix)", and "Hurt (US 12" rubber dub mix)".

VariousSatan In Love – Rare Finnish Synth-Pop & Disco – 1978 to 1992 ... CD
Svart (Finland), Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $14.99
Obscure grooves from the Finnish scene of the 80s – tracks that do a nice job of bridging the space between earlier Euro disco modes, particularly the work of the Munich scene – and the huge wave of electro pop that was coming out of the UK at the time! In fact, much of the material here really feels like the latter – save for the fact that the language is often different – and the groups do a good job of echoing the sweet electronic modes of groups like Human League, Ultravox, and Heaven 17 – working with plenty of beats and keyboards, but usually in a way that's warm and catchy, and not like some of the colder electro work of the period. And even if you can't understand the language, lots of these tunes are pretty darn catchy – and the vocals maybe come across just like one more instrumental element – adding an extra flavor to the sweet electric modes. Titles include "San Salvador" by Argon, "Satan In Love" by Emilia, "Cairo C" by Digital Dance, "Tatsia" by Stress, "Nyt Tanssitaan" by Jerry, "Help Me" by Syntax, "Kuolleet Pelit" by Belaboris, "Harhaa" by Raya, "Vanha Suola Janottaa" by Tapa Paha Tapa, "Fashion Maailma" by Press, "17 Up" by Mick Hanian, and "Computer Talk" by BB.

✨✧ Various1977 – The Year Punk Broke (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1977. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A really great look at a key year in British punk – a time when the music really broke open, and artists from a wide range of scenes began to make music in a punk rock vein! The set has way more variety than you might expect – not just the big names and new acts that were helping define the music, but also surprising entries from hard rock, pub rock, and other styles – all really embracing the short, sharp shocks of punk – and showing just how influential the new sound was to the larger British music scene. Punk never grabbed the mainstream the same way over here – and the 3CD set is a fantastic representation of the big bang the music made in the UK in 1977 – presented with the kind of detailed notes and other information that always makes these collections from Cherry Red so great. The package features a massive 87 tracks in all – with work by The Heartbreakers, Eater, Chartreuse, The Rings, Models, Buzzocks, Vibrators, Deaf School, The Damned, Gorillas, The Jam, Britzkrieg Bop, Cock Sparrer, Motorhead, Only Ones, Johnny Moped, Rezillos, Slaughter & The Dogs, Wreckless Eric, Boomtown Rats, Sham 69, Radiators From Space, Doctors Of Madness, Generation X, Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoias, Zeros, Tom Robinson Band, X-Ray Spex, Tyla Gang, Jerks, Spider, Alternative TV, John Cooler Clarke, Graham Parker, The Doll, Ultravox, Chelsea, Eddie & The Hot Rods, Raped, Norman & The Hoolians, Drug Squad, and many others.
