    Default 80's R'n'B/Electro-soul

    Youtube has become the primary way for me to find old but new-to-me music that I would otherwise have no way of ever knowing about. Being pretty young, this kind of stuff was being made when I was just a toddler. Here's a handful I've found thanks to the tube:

    Starpoint - Object Of My Desire


    Loose Ends - Hangin' On A String


    Shirley Murdock - No More


    Cheryl Lynn - Every Time I Try To Say Goodbye (12" mix)



    Loose Ends - Slow Down


    Stephanie Mills - (You're Putting) A Rush


    Dubby, electronic, lots in common with Chicago house, electro-funk, late disco, etc. I love anything remotely related... please add on. I'm not so much talking about the Prince-associated stuff though that's obviously big.

    More from the same era, but not necessarily soul.

    Mass Production - Firecracker


    Starflight - Dance to the beat


    General Caine - Shake


    And of course...

    The Commodores - You Bring Me Up (great soccer vid)


    I'm nuts about this stuff. Living in a not terribly hip neighbourhood in Tokyo, bizarrely enough just around the corner there's a guy running a small bar / vegetarian cafe called Ovo Lakto. He has a whole wall it, crates and crates of records (with decks), cds. I go there sometimes and I'm bugging out in heaven.

    His mixing is a bit rough tho...

    the rain....

    Hey hey baby how ya doin' come on in here
    Got some hot chocolate on the stove waiting for you
    Listen first things first let me hang up the coat
    Yeah how was your day today
    Did you miss me
    You did? Yeah? I missed you too
    I missed you so much I followed you today
    That's right now close your mouth
    'Cause you cold busted
    Now just sit down here, sit down here
    I'm so upset with you I don't know what to do
    You know my first impulse was to run up on you
    And do a Rambo
    I was about to pull out the jammy and flat blast both of you
    But I didn't wanna mess up this thirt-seven hundred dollar lynx coat
    So instead I chilled -- That's right chilled
    I called up the bank and took out every dime.
    Than I cancelled all your credit cards...
    I stuck you up for every piece of jewelery I ever bought you!
    Don't go lookin' in that closet 'cause everything you came here with is
    packed up and waiting for you in the guest room. What were you
    thinking?
    You don't mess with the Juice!
    I gave you silk suits, blue diamonds and gucci handbags.
    I gave you things you couldn't even pronounce!
    But now I can't give you nothing but advice.
    Cause you're still young, yeah, you're young.
    And you're gonna find somebody like me one of these days . . .
    Until then, you know what you gotta do?
    You gotta get on outta here with that alley-cat-coat-wearing,
    punch-bucket-shoe-wearing crumbcake I saw you with. Cause you
    dismissed!
    That's right, Silly rabbit, tricks are made for kids, don't you know
    that. You without me is like corn flakes without the milk! This is my
    world. You're just a squirrel trying to get a nut! Now get on outta
    here. Scat!
    Don't touch that coat...
