If the Patricks deserve their thread -and they do- it's about time to talk about Leroy Burgess! And possibly Greg Carmichael.

And in addition to so many fine disco and electro productions, Patrick Adams engineered Eric B and Rakim's Paid in Full LP.
Dude is dude.

Fonda Rae's "Tuch Me (All Night Long)"

I love him. Doctors are always too serious, with surgery, illness and all that depressing crap. Sometimes they forget how important it is for them to make people laugh, too.

Robin Williams was just awesome in the movie.

both of these are great and have been re-pressed all over the place

Patrick Adam's keyboard also deserves a thread. It's such a recognizable sound.

His stuff has been reissued a whole bunch, in varying sound quality and packaging, but a lot of it is gold. The first Cloud One album is pretty much perfect. The Phreek album is very solid, although a bit more mainstream disco, like the Musique stuff (not as "pillowy"). The Masterpiece comp is decent, but nowhere near definitive (also it has some wack versions of songs).

Michael F Gill, Tuesday, 21 August 2007 21:47 (twelve years ago) link

i think the most i paid for a 12" was Universal Robot Band's "Dance and Shake Your Tambourine".

but it's ok, because i found the Musique LP on the ground once still in good condition.

i heard a P&P records 2cd greatest hits thing that i honestly didn't like a lot of :(

jaxon, Tuesday, 21 August 2007 22:20 (twelve years ago) link

The market has become somewhat flooded with p&p record comps the last five years or so. Kind of weird.

eight months pass...

just found out that the band in Universal Robot Band are the same guys in my faves Kleeer. crazypants.

jaxon, Wednesday, 14 May 2008 18:34 (eleven years ago) link

man, this stuff turns up SOOOO much more in NY that in SF. i mean it's obvious why, but i picked up the Universal Robot Band 12", Cloud One LP and Musique LP while in NY and never seen any of them here.

recently picked up a kinda housey Skipworth & Turner 12" "Thinking About Your Love" that's kinda cool

jaxon, Wednesday, 14 May 2008 18:39 (eleven years ago) link

how is Narada Michael Walden - Awakening album that he produced?

jaxon, Wednesday, 14 May 2008 18:39 (eleven years ago) link

I love pretty much everything mentioned above, but I picked up the Narada Michael Walden album for $3 and still ended up selling it back promptly. For me it was way too "soft" and "pleasant" and not at all in interesting ways.

matt2, Wednesday, 14 May 2008 18:58 (eleven years ago) link

all those records have been repressed by the Patricks here in NY and can be found in most decent stores. The originals still pop up, but smart folks know the price. i.e., if you bought Universal Robot Band sealed at A-1 for 8 bucks or whatever, it's a reprint! Musique and all that prelude stuff however is all over the city.

It's all good though...

dan selzer, Wednesday, 14 May 2008 20:22 (eleven years ago) link

payed 25-30$ for each the urb 12" and cloud one records and as i said above, found the musique album on the ground in ny.

jaxon, Thursday, 15 May 2008 00:39 (eleven years ago) link

smart folks know the price. i.e., if you bought Universal Robot Band sealed at A-1 for 8 bucks or whatever, it's a reprint!

I found a used copy of their "Freak With Me" 12-inch for $2 in Greenpoint (the gigantic basement of that thrift store The Thing) last year, and I don't think it's a reprint -- Red Greg Records, sort of sky blue/aquamarine-colored label. Am I wrong?

And wow, no mention of "Makin' Love" by Sammy Gordon & the Hip-huggers on this thread? Well, now there is.

four years pass...

Anybody cop the 15 CD P&P records box?

windjammer voyage (blank), Sunday, 17 June 2012 01:44 (seven years ago) link

wau that looks crazy (though I only know a few of the tracks) and it's super cheap. Will probably pick it up.

recordbreaking transfer to Lucknow FC (seandalai), Sunday, 17 June 2012 02:27 (seven years ago) link

That box set: amazing disco, varying degrees of interesting r&b, and a lot of the worst old school rap ever. Lots of chaff. But dirt cheap.
