Soul II Soul: Keep On Movin' [Virgin, 1989]
The vapidity of "A happy face, a thumping bass, for a loving race" wouldn't bother anybody if these Londoners didn't take dread in vain--with hair like that you're supposed to be more, you know, cultural. But for a disco band, they're quite all right, really--very tuneful, with a nice loping groove and vocals out of Chic and Eddy Grant. And though I wish they liked saxophones, the flute is them.
