✨✧ Zapp & RogerAll The Greatest Hits ... CD
Warner/Reprise, Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The true heroes of mainstream funk in the early 80s – the legendary Roger Troutman and Zapp – key heirs to the sounds of P-Funk in the 70s, with a groove that stretched all the way from their native Ohio to make a huge impact in LA! This collection features most of the group's key tracks from their Warner albums of the early 80s, plus some added remixes done in 1993 for the package – and together, the combination of styles helped to make this a record that's sold as well as any of the original albums in the group's catalog! Titles include "More Bounce To The Ounce", "Be Alright", "Do It Roger", "Doo Wa Ditty (Blow That Thing)", "So Ruff So Tuff", "Dance Floor", "Heartbreaker (parts 1 & 2)", "Slow & Easy", "Mega Medley", and "Computer Love" – plus 1993 remixes of "Midnight Hour", "Curiosity", and "Night & Day".

Roger (Roger Troutman)Unlimited! ... LP
Reprise, 1987. Sealed ... $14.99
Plenty of beats here from Roger Troutman – going for a sound that's maybe even more electro than some of his earlier solo work, at a level that really seems to be pushing the Zapp sound further for the 80s! The style is funky, but touched with lots of elements that have wended their way from indie hip hop up to mainstream soul – all at a level that later acts might fuse together with a bit more warmth, but which still has the starker feel of electro soul in Troutman's hands. Titles include "Thrill Seekers", "I Want To Be You Man", "I Really Want to Be You Man", "Night & Day", and "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed with hype sticker. Cover has a cutout notch.)

✨✧ ZappMore Bounce To The Ounce (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
Warner, 1980. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Bootsy and Roger went all the way to the bank with this one – a classic electro funk groover without which, most of west coast late 80s/early 90s hip hop would not exist! The cut's a monster – and still sounds wonderful whatever the context. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a year in marker.)

ZappNew Zapp IV U/Vibe (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Robinsongs (UK), Late 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 20.99
A pair of albums from Zapp – back to back, and with bonus tracks too! New Zapp IV U is the group's fourth album – and it captures Zapp at the height of their powers – a bit more focused than before, but every bit as funky! Roger's production here is impeccable – done with a great ear for the most soulful side of the group's talents, which keeps them far from some of the more commercial groups who were copping their vibe, but never got things right. Great proof of this is the mellow cut "Computer Love" – a slow stepper that has the group showing their sweeter side, but never losing their cool – a bit like some of the best Fatback ballads of the early 80s. Other cuts are mostly funky – filled with tight basslines, keyboards, and electro bits – and tunes include "It Doesn't Really Matter", "Radio People", "Rock N Roll", "Make Me Feel Good", and "Ja Ready To Rock". Vibe is a set that's late in the classic Zapp run from the 80s, but a record that's still very much head and shoulders above the competition – including the many acts who were trying to cop Roger Troutman's groove, but never got things this right! There's still plenty of bass at the bottom, re-fitted to more of a late 80s funk mode – and some of the trickier turns have the group really serving up that link to P-Funk that's always made them so great – and at a level that maybe even George Clinton couldn't even match at the time. Vocoder bits continue that great Zapp vocal legacy too – used in sparing amounts, but still a wonderful touch – and titles include "Ooh Baby Baby", "I Play The Talk Box", "Fire", "Been This Way Before", "Back To Bass-iks", "Ain't The Thing To Do", "Rock Star", "Jesse Jackson", and "Jake E Stanstill". CD features bonus tracks "Computer Love (ext version)", "California Love (feat Dale DeGroat & Big Robb)", "Computer Love (inst)", "Chocolate City", "I Play The Talk Box (ext)", "Ooh Baby Baby (12" version)", "I Play The Talk Box (dub)", and "Fire (inst jazz version)".

ZappZapp ... LP
Warner, 1980. Very Good ... $29.99
The classic first album by this legendary funky combo – a group who not only went onto change the sound of funk in the 80s, but also went onto have a huge impact on generations of hip hop as well! The album burns from the very first note – the wicked snapping funk of "More Bounce To The Ounce" – a tune that became the blueprint for a generation, and still sounds way better than the millions of copycat attempts that came out over the years! The record follows with some equally wicked bass/keyboard cuts – often with plenty of electro production touches too – thanks to sweeeet work in the studio from Bootsy Collins and Roger Troutman. Bootsy's presence is key, too – as the set kind of strips down the ensemble P-Funk vibe of the generation before – going for a lean, clean groove that's held up beautifully over the years! In addition to "More Bounce To The Ounce", the record also features the mellow steppers cut "Be Alright", which has a wonderful hook, and a great compressed modern soul sound – and other tracks include "Funky Bounce", "Freedom", and "Brand New Pplayer". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has minimal wear.)

✨✧ Roger (Roger Troutman)Saga Continues ... LP
Warner, 1984. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Crisply popping grooves from Roger – a great solo record from the voice of Zapp! The Saga Continues finds Roger still rocking his trademark effects laden vocals and vamping guitar work into the middle of the decade – with even tighter syncopated percussion, funky keys, and sharp synth bursts – sailing in a killer groove throughout! Roger produced the record along with Larry Troutman – and they bring in Maceo Parker for a horn solo and Ohio Player Billy Beck for keyboards as well! Tracks include a vocoder funk reading of Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour", plus "In The Mix", "Play Your Guitar Brother Roger", "The Break Song", "I Keep Trying", "Bucket Of Blood", "T C Song", and "Girl Cut It Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing! Cover has a small cutout mark.)

✨✧ ZappZapp III ... LP
Warner, 1983. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Zapp's 3rd album, and one that shows them still very much on top of their game! The mix of tight bass, keyboards, and occasional vocoder bits is firmly in place from their first two albums – a stunning legacy of ensemble funk that pushes the older P-Funk ethos into hip new territory for the 80s! Roger and crew are superb throughout – fusing all rhythmic elements together beautifully, and electrifying the whole album with some great voice box vocals – almost making you feel like the instruments themselves are running the show! Titles include "We Need The Buck", "Spend My Whole Life", "I Can Make You Dance", "Do Wa Ditty (live)", "Play Some Blues", and "Heartbreaker (parts 1 & 2)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ ZappZapp II ... LP
Warner, 1982. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Seminal work from Roger Troutman and Zapp – a killer batch of cuts that forever changed the sound of funk! The group's "wheeeeeeet/whomp!" sound is very firmly in place by the time of this release – and the sound here is even more electric than their debut – a groundbreaking style that went onto inspire countless acts of the electro generation, and a fair bit of hip hoppers too! Vocals are by Roger, Bad Bobby Glover, and Gregory Jackson – and Zapp's basslines really kick the whole thing into gear – as do the keyboards, too. Titles include "A Touch Of Jazz (Playin Kinda Ruff Part 2)", "Dance Floor", "Doo Wa Ditty (Blow That Thing)", "Come On", "Do You Really Want An Answer", and "Playin Kinda Ruff". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed – with hype sticker!)

✨✧ Kool KeithBlack Elvis/Lost In Space ... CD
Ruffhouse/Columbia, 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Kool Keith adds Black Elvis to his always expanding collection of personalities. This time, two tracks produced by Kut Masta Kurt and the rest produced by Kool Keith. Maybe as a way of making up for saying "I don't neeeed Zapp, I don't neeeed Roger Troutman," on a record a few years back, Roger is featured on "Master of the Game", complete with the classic Zapp vocoder effects. Overall, the sound is similar to the Dr. Dooom LP, with maybe a few more futuristic verses and less emphasis on how everyone else is biting his style. Tracks include "Rockets On The Battlefield", "Livin Astro", "Supergalactic Lover", "I'm Seein Robots", "Static", "Black Elvis", "Maxi Curls", "Keith Turbo", "Fine Girls", "The Girls Don't Like The Job", "Clifton", "All The Time", and "I Don't Play" CD
