Dazz Band - Joystick Joystick
Funk New - LP 6084ML Motown
Sealed 1983 Original. Small Saw Cut. “From Cleveland To Cincinnati To Dayton, Ohio Was Famous For Its Funk Bands In The 1970s. One Of The Many Ohio Funk Outfits That Emerged During The Decade Was Cleveland's Dazz Band, Which Was Originally Known As Kinsman Dazz. Like So Many Midwestern Funksters, The Dazz Band Had A Killer Horn Section. But In 1983, Horn Bands Were Quickly Going Out Of Fashion And A New Style Of Electro-Funk Was Taking Over -- One That Favored Keyboards And Drum Machines Over Horns And Showed An Awareness Of Hip-Hop Production Techniques. The Popularity Of Electro-Funk Put A Lot Of 1970s Bands Out Of Business, But The Dazz Band Managed To Hang In There And Change With The Times. On 1983's Joystick, The Dazz Band Is A Lot More High-Tech Than It Was In The Late '70s, But Is Still Quite Gritty. Tracks Like "Straight Out Of School," "Rock With Me," And The Hit Single "Swoop (I'm Yours)" Find The Dazz Band Meeting The Demands Of The Electro-Funk Market With Pleasing Results -- Anyone Digging Prince, Midnight Star, And The System In 1983 Could Easily Get Into The Dazz Band As Well….” Alex Henderson, AMG.... more details

Dazz Band - On The One On The One
Funk New - LP 6031 ML Motown
Sealed 1982 Original. "Following Grandly In The Style Of Their 1981 Smash "Let It Whip," The Dazz Band Laid Down Another Excellent Set Of Contemporary Funk, Shot Through With A Heavily Synthesized Dance Groove -- Their Trademark, And A Winning Combination. Although The Advent Of Cds Would Make A Mockery Of Their Ambition, The Dazz Band Programmed The Album For Two Very Separate Moods -- Side One, For The Most Part, Heaves With Pounding Funkers, Side Two Takes The Tempo Way Down For A Clutch Of Sweet Ballads. Both Sides, Of Course, Have Their Devotees. With A Parliament-Esque Style That Broke In Waves Across The Opening "Party Right Here," Side One Is A Nonstop Whipping, The Party Sliding Gleefully Into "Cheek To Cheek" And, From There, The Effusive, "On The One For Fun." The Biggest Charting Hit Of The Three, The Song Seems Perpetually On The Verge Of Slipping Into "Let It Whip" -- Which Was Probably The Intention. That It Reached Number Nine On The R&B Charts Is No Great Surprise. "A Love Song" Slows Down Somewhat, But With Its Vibe Wrapped Around A Jazzy Horn-Driven, Up-Tempo Smooth Talker, It Never Quite Immerses Itself In Balladic Waters. That Is, Indeed, Left To Side Two, Where Only "Nice Girls" Shakes Things Up With A Fistful Of Funk." Amy Hanson, AMG.... more details
