The Time - S/T - 1981 - Warner
Morris Day and this top notch band come together for their first LP under the thumb of Prince to reinforce the solid hit making 80s funk sound of Minneapolis, Paisley Park and Starr Company production.
The Lady Is Bad
Richard "Dimples" Fields - Mr. Look So Good - 1982 - Boardwalk
Another personal favorite when it comes to 80s funk. The always smooth and classy Dimples knows how to deliver the jams while using early 80s production in all the best ways. (Over)Compressed to perfection.
