    Phyllis Hyman, "The answer is you"
  1. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Forward a year for this Lonnie Liston Smith groover:
  2. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Back to 1977 for this jazz funk classic by Jimmy Smith:
  3. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    This 1981 jazz funker from Dutch outfit Blue Feather got big backing from Robbie Vincent:
  4. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Fantastic record by Wood Brass & Steel - their LPs were both recently reissued on vinyl by Soul Brother. Hearing that reminded me of this jazzy funky cheesy disco by Metropolis:
  5. those "sad" records you play late at night

    Great Barbara Lynn tune, also done later by her for Ichiban... First heard this courtesy of Dr Bob Jones, wonderful record with the wonderful voice of Hari Paris:
  6. UK Pirate Radio Stns -- 1960's

    That would have been a stretch of imagination for the programmers, or a distant ambition ... it was years before Radio 1 went 24 hours. I can remember the breakfast show starting at 7 (after an hour of Radio 2's breakfast show broadcast on the same frequency)...
  7. Articles: Keeping a Faith

    Reading the article brought this song by Curtis Mayfield to mind:
  8. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    Back to 1978 for this, Chic in all but name - Norma Jean Wright:
  9. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    More 1981 dancefloor action that's been revived on various modern floors in recent years - Charles Mann:
  10. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    This 1981 floorfiller got tons of airplay and dented the lower reaches of the charts - Frank Hooker and the Positive People:
  11. Late 70's Jazz Funk Scene

    This was huge in 1979, and holds up very well, marking the reinvention of Herb Alpert as a jazz funker (although he'd already been dabbling, e.g., with Hugh Masekela):
  12. Articles: Keeping a Faith

    Enjoyed this, thanks for posting. The "Divine Disco" comp put together by Greg Belson is an excellent collection, well worth your time. The Enlightment tracks alone are fantastic
  13. Blue-eyed Soul?

    Don't think anyone has posted this, a Canadian release by Black and Ward:
  14. those "sad" records you play late at night

    Jazz pianist McCoy Tyner's 1982 LP "Looking out" featured a few tracks with Phyllis on lead vocals, and this track in particular gets me every time ... great vocals, great musicianship:
  15. those "sad" records you play late at night

    This sits in the middle of three absolutely wonderful tracks on side A of the album of the same name by Bobby Womack. Many hours spent with this in contemplation:
