I'll have a nectar and tonic

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).

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 :(

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

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

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

jaxon, Wednesday, 14 May 2008 18:39 (fourteen 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.

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...

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.

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.

Anybody cop the 15 CD P&P records box?

windjammer voyage (blank), Sunday, 17 June 2012 01:44 (ten 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.

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.

ugh, absolute

donna rouge, Wednesday, 22 June 2022 16:58 (one month ago) link

oh no! his discography is crazy. he was involved in a wild number of incredible records. i only recently found out he engineered most of Follow the Leader which still sounds of the future in places.

total legend.

stirmonster, Wednesday, 22 June 2022 17:24 (one month ago) link

this one was a classic at the ice rink when i was 10. i didn't find out what it was for another quarter of a century.

stirmonster, Wednesday, 22 June 2022 17:33 (one month ago) link

his disco string arrangements are breathtaking

brimstead, Wednesday, 22 June 2022 17:46 (one month ago) link

Total musical hero. Rest In Peace.
