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...

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????

Hi 155,

How could I forget Joyce Sims. All 'n' all was big classic. Good time music.
