 Love Twins
Temptation
US AVI LP Promo - £13 VG++ / cut corner bottom right / plays fine on slow cuts / some noise on Disco cuts

One of those early AVI lp's with only 4 long cuts on it. The strongest are probably the 2 slow cuts THERE'S NOTHING SWEETER THAN SUCCESS & THINGS WILL WORK OUT IN THE END. Decent Disco on IF YOU LEAD ME INTO TEMPTATION and then there is MORE TO ME THAN MEETS THE EYE which has some good breaks but the vocals are extreme cheese

Male vocal funk soul group from 1977 Inc. the great jazzy Instumental CREEK + title track


  




 Mandre
Mandre 2
US MOTOWN LP - £12

I am reluctant to mention P-Funk as an influence in this guys music as he really stands on his own but there is certainly a nod to the PFunk sound but he has cranked up the spaced out element. Whilst much of the music is laid back & beautiful it can suddenly burst into a moments excitement. For me the whole of side 2 is a killer dreamy spacy soundscape for those afterhours situations


  




 Mandrill
Is
US POLYDOR LP Promo - £10 VG with label & sleeve wear from dampness

More classic funk from Mandrill - the spoken word UNIVERSAL RHYTHMS has been sampled loads as have many other of the best tunes CENTRAL PARK / CHILDREN OF THE SUN / HERE TODAY GONE TOMORROW - I also like the Instrumental KOFIJAHM Promo copy with Gatefold


  




 Mandrill
We Are One

 Marlena Shaw
Just A Matter Of Time
US BLUE NOTE LP - £10 Mint / unplayed with small cut corner / light ring wear

This mid seventies lp has a few hustle type Disco tunes but the strongest cuts are the slower more soulful ones like SING TO ME / BRASS BAND but the stand out is the mid tempo Funky Soul tune THINK ABOUT ME


  




 Martha High
Martha High
US SALSOUL LP - £10 Mint / unplayed / Promo stamp on back

Long term backing singer for James Brown finally got a solo lp in 1979. As it's produced by JB it is a kind of unique Disco Funk sound. Nothing too fast & James' nod to the Disco era seems to be in the use of a few spacey effects & he still retains the funk on SHOWDOWN / WALLFLOWER / HE'S MY DING DONG MAN. But probably the best cut is the more Soulful tune OH THIS FEELING
