Product Description

Product Description

The hidden sound of black America is boogie, a funk-meets-soul hybrid that dominated US clubs at the start of the 1980s. In the late 70s a backlash against disco saw black American dance music pushed underground, but vibrant creativity helped to form the next step. BGP s latest compilation shines a light on the club sounds of the early part of the 80s, music which combined funk and soul with the first flowerings of electro and rap music. Compiled and annotated by UK DJ and recording artist Julian Jonah, this club music is exciting collectors all over Europe today. The selections include rare 12-inch mixes and full-length album tracks, lifted straight from the original master tapes. These are the sounds that would fire up the dance music explosion of the late 80s. If you want to find out where electronic dance music began it is all here. The records featured include club classics from Carol Williams and JT plus collectable obscurities by Rare Essence, Steptoe and Mynk. A glance at the production credits shows the involvement of such important figures as Leroy Burgess and Arthur Baker.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 'boogie' balance is just right 13 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
You probably have to have been seriously into 'boogie' in the mid 80s or a new enthusiast to the genre to totally 'get' this compilation. As soul and funk artists and producers embraced electronic instrumentation during the early to mid 80s and 'electro' was becoming more recognised, clubbers like myself found their record purchases showed quite a variety of sounds, with diva vocals, vocoders, proto raps, drum machines and genuine soul all in the melting pot. And that, in essence, is the 'boogie' sound that is presented here: good time tunes full of soul, funk and a healthy dose of 'new' technologies. It was fun then, and it still is. Tunes offered on this CD vary hugely from the late disco of Sylvester's 'Give It Up' to the electro of 'Electrophonic Phunk' by Shock USA via the much-loved soulful dance of 'Can't Get Away (From Your Love)' by Carol Williams. But played from start to finish, this collection works really well as a definition of the boogie genre and as a smile-inducing, get-down party playlist. Sound quality is, as usual with BGP, excellent and pulls from labels such as Vanguard and Fantasy. Highly recommended. Go for it!

4.0 out of 5 stars What makes a good boogie CD? 29 Sep 2013
By andrea
Verified Purchase
Well actually 4.5 stars!
This is no expansion records cd but is a great grower. so what makes this different from other run of the mill boogie CDs. Well for me it's bass guitar, and this cd has it in shed loads.
The best tracks are the quality ...pastel and that's a lady and the jumping ...can't get away, I love music, give it up and the funky ....project funk and body moves. However for me the fantastic get up an' dance by Mynk was worth the price tag. A truly great dance track and a must for anyone's collection of 80's dance.
If you are a soul Puritan then you may not like this. But if you like dance, soulful groove or commercial funky stuff, try this one as 8 great tracks for under a tender must be worth a punt!

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought it for one song 24 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
First heard electrophonic funk back in 1984. It's one of those songs which conjours up memories from a time in your past. It was worth buying the cd just for one track.
