Sly & Robbie do Boogie Funk

Sly & Robbie's catalog is obviously enormous, and I'd like to hear more stuff they were doing in a boogie / disco / funk vein in the 80s.

The Gwen Guthrie records are probably the most famous in that line, "It Should've Been You," "Peanut Butter," etc. I guess you would count some of the Grace Jones tracks too?

what are more Sly & Robbie productions that sound like this?

    Nothing on Grace Jones - Nightclubbing is Boogie/Funk.

    No, but the 12" of Pull Up To The bumper is great.

  • Good think you ask because they are currently producing a funk album with new york and memphis singers and rappers
    Will be out later this year

    Nightclubbing has classic dance joints but they are not Boogie or Funk or sound anything like Seventh Heaven.

    sure, she doesn't really have straight boogie tracks, but she definitely has funk & disco songs – which was also in my description. i guess i mostly just referenced her b/c i wasn't looking for grace jones recommendations. like you said, none of her stuff sounds like Seventh Heaven & i'm curious if there's more sly & robbie tracks that sound like that.

    most of the compass point stuff that sly & robbie worked on was more reggae/dub than what i'm talking about. and a lot of the compass point stuff that's in a boogie / disco / funk vein didn't involve sly & robbie....

    That A-Sex song and the break in it is one of my favourites.

    Haha, I was going to poast something about the subject matter. First time I heard the song, Grace Jones was performing some televised concert (in the '80s). I remember Sly & Robbie being introduced, not knowing who they were, and to me Jones was the baddie from James Bond. I have a feeling I might have actually asked my mum what the song was about... I think she just said "Traffic".
