    I won a Luther Vandross LP in a local radio competion.

    It's shit though. I know that even though I've never played it.

    Does that count?

    I grew up listening to that sort of stuff having older siblings who like music... never really knew the names but tend to know the tunes... soft spot for it but miles from what I'd normally listen to...
    There should be something amusing or clever here...

    Hi Bommer,

    I like my 80s soul. The 80s were a good record buying time for me. At the start of the 80s, I was in my mid teens.

    There was a change in the music in the early 80s. Computer and synth technology was coming into the record production. In the clubs, the term disco music gave way to things should as 80s groove, (US) garage, Jazz funk, modern soul, hip hop & electro. A very good time for dance and soulmusic.

    Stuff by SOS Band, Slave, George Benson, Joycelyn Brown,Loose Ends, Shalamar, Aretha Franklin, George clinton, Chaka Khan, Skyy, Freddie Jackson, Jeffery Osbourne, Maze, Cameo, BB&Q band, Linx, Light of the world, Central line, Hi Tension, Lilo Thomas, Sherrick, Barbara Pennington, Bobby Womack, The Time and many more were the order of the day.

    There plenty of good singers and tunes in the 80s and tunes.Here are some of my faves,

    Joycelyn Brown - Somebody's elses guy

    Booker Newbury III - Love town

    Fonda Rae - Touch me

    Gwen Gurthie - Ain't nothing going on but the rent

    Patrice Rushen - Forget me not

    D- Train - Your the one for me

    Barbara Mason - Another man

    Aretha Franklin - Jump to it

    SOS - The Finest

    Change - Glow of love

    Thelma Houston - You used to hold me so tight

    Shannon - Let the music play

    Shannon Redd - Can you handle it

    Class Action - Weekend

    Royalle Delight - I'll be a freak

    Aurra - You and me tonight

    Dhar Braxton - Jump back

    Serious Intention - You don't know

    Luther Vandross - Sooner or later

    Loose ends - Dangling on a string

    Maze - Twilight

    Temptations - Treat her like a lady

    plus many more.

    Some great records there. Can I add 'Dreamer' by BB & Q Band, 'The Morning After' Curtis Hairston, Joyce Sims (the material produced by Mantronik), Full Circle/First Circle 'Working Up ASweat' and 'Miracle Worker', Juicy 'Sugar Free', Lilo Thomas 'I'm I Love', and maybe we should organise a cd swap????

    80's Soul

    Wigan Casino or Blackpool allnighters, 28" electric blue Oxford Bags, platform shoes, tank tops , back drops.........

    At least some peeps on here have good taste.

    Don't forget the Bootsy Collins and Parliament funk alternative aspect along with the S.O.S. band.

    Some great Northern Soul compilations including "There's a ghost in my House" by R. Dean Taylor are available on CD that to buy the 7" vinyl of would cost £000's to-day including Evelyn Champagne King.

    A direct connection to the groove is mandatory :dude:

    I still have 3 full size, not flight, record cases of 7" singles from mobile disco days.

    Hi Bommer,



    I remember the Planet Patrol record - Cheap thrills. It was on the Tommy Boy label. Tommy boy had a number of fine releases on it from the likes of the Soul Sonic force, Jonzen Crew and many more.

    It is worth knowing that in recent years Tommy Boy has been quite happily reissuing much of its back catalogue, including the album by Planet Patrol. Many of the 12"s considered to be classics have also been reissued ('Renegades of Funk','Planet Rock', 'Looking For The Perfect Beat' etc).If the moderators are happy, I'd be quite willing to post up much of the material as easy to download mps?

    In the 80's I was more in to rock and world music BUT one of the best concerts that I ever attended and believe me I 've been to a few was Bobby Womack from 1986? - utterly incredible - superb support band as well...

    Hey, don't forget Dennis Edwards...



    Makes you wonder where all that good stuff has gone?
