Assorted records played at home: Bretby Anniversary LP, Jermaine Jackson, Orquesta Suprema, Bobby Thurston
Bretby Anniversary LP vol. 1
Ltd edition LP celebrating the 1st anniversary of the Bretby Soul Club; a release from the 80s I believe with then current dancers. One side of disco-soul tracks and one of northern soul
Jermaine Jackson - Feel the fire (Motown)
Nice lp by the underrated brother of Michael Jackson. Best track is the two-step "You need to be loved"
Bobby Thurston - You got what it takes (Jupiter)
Disco-heavy alum by Bobby. Highlight (and the reason for playing it) is the version of "Sitting in the park"
Orquesta Suprema - The Salsa Family (Sound Triangle)
Florida salsa from 1980; very soulful and good songs
Paul Ortiz Y La Orquesta Son - Los Que Son (Ghetto)
Lovely Latin Soul album with the sweet ballad "Tender Love" as its focal point
Marvin Gaye - A Guy Named Marvin Gaye (Motown)
Recorded before his "What's Going On" this is more traditional Motown fare with strong song choices
Dionne Warwick - Freewheelin' Dionne Warwick (Scepter)
Classic songs like "I say a little prayer" and "This girl's in love with you"
Francy Boland - Fellini 712 (MPB)
Big band jazz but so smooth and elegant
