"Con-Funk-Shun - The Essence of Dignity..." a direct quote from Ted Sturges (the first producer of Con-Funk-Shun for 3 years at Audio Dimensions Studios in Memphis, Tennessee). I was privileged to meet both Ted and Con-Funk-Shun in 1972 just prior to ... See full review

This is an interesting single. There are 3 releases on Lyon's Records Co. Inc. with the same title, including 2 versions released by Fifth Avenue (2). The album mix on Fifth Avenue (2) - Miracles has a classic modern soul vibe with a touch of gospel, while the 12" ... See full review

Originally posted in the submission: U.S. Music With Funkadelic - U.S. Music With Funkadelic

In 1972, as the lineup of Funkadelic that had made the first three albums collapsed in on themselves, some members shuttled back and forth between Detroit and Toronto and kept recording. One of the ... See full review

The UK-edition of this album is Aurra - Like I Like It. The single "Like I Like It" was also their first hit in the UK followed by the single release of "Happy Feeling." Previous group-members contributed to this project, such as bass player Buddy Hankerson and ... See full review

Ultra-rare and relatively unknown Electro-Boogie-Funk from 1984. Originally produced and released as a four-track mini EP on their own label (possibly the one and only release).

Review from producer and DJ, Dam-Funk:
"...Superior private-press EP out of ... See full review

Review by scoundrel Mar 29, 2004
"...there are the 70s disco samples -- the spirit of disco infuses Synthese (like on “Atom Funk” and “18 Carats”),..."

"18 Carats" contains a sample of the Fender Rhodes-solo part on "Wrap You Up" ... See full review

Indeed, it was an interesting and creative change of direction for the group during the recording and release of this single + same-titled album. That creative change somewhere started around 1982, when they moved out of New York to Atlanta and slimmed ... See full review

Yeah, Gavin Christopher sings on "Stars In Your Eyes" and "Don't Hold It In" from the "Monster" album.
On this single-release it's Greg Walker singing for both tracks.

"Nite...time...action..." ... if you're hip to an olskool-partymood, then a few uptempo tracks such as "Funkin Around", "My Love Grows Stronger" and "Nite Time Fun" from this project are worth to check, and worth as well to find the Japanese cd-reissue ... See full review

Yeah, it's possible that those albums stayed in the vault or for other unknown reasons were never realised.
The label kept on releasing after this single though : 1984 - Risse (2) - Who's There / 1985 - T.N.T. (21) - Old Fashin' Parents / 1985 - Gaston (5) - The Hound
And around 1984 there seemed a ... See full review

A few years back, the "Soul Session Mix" of this release caught my attention by hearing it at an online radio-stream. The sample in that version is from Don Blackman - Heart's Desire / Holding You, Loving You with a louder beat, which in my opinion mixes good with Chris' powerful vocals. Earcandy ... See full review

Excellent review MaximusMCX, and a thoughtful quote by Al. One Way indeed often delivers on their albums a mix from tempo to mellow. This album starts with the solid title-cut and towards the end of the album they enter with a trunk of funkslices like ... See full review
posted a comment on Dayton - It Must Be Love / Conversation. over 7 years ago
Another release which contains their non-album track, "Conversation", as a B-side. Not shure when "Conversation" was recorded, but to some degree it approaches the sound of their earlier-recorded single, Dayton - Cutie Pie

"Conversation" doesn't appear on any album from Dayton. Not shure when "Conversation" was recorded,

This track somewhat resembles L.S. Movement Band - Move, but not like an exact copy of each other. There are some parts which come close, and you could also mix them easily back to back. So in my opinion one release inspired by the other.

Audrey Wheeler was never part of Attitude.
Around the same year that "Pump the Nation" was released, Audrey recorded her vocals for the album "Yes, We're Ready" on Prelude Records,
which is the second project by the group Unlimited ... See full review
