This survey of Roy Ayers’s Uno Melodic imprint sees some of the best productions from the label gathered together from a brief but productive three year period between 1980 and 1983. Ayers pulled together a wealth of talent from his Polydor label-mates and beyond and between them created a slew of classics that still stand up today. Eighties ladies’ sassy ‘Turned Onto You’, Sylivia Striplin’s stepping mid-tempo ‘You Can’t Turn Me Away’ and Ethel Beatty’s proto-disco ‘I Know You Care’ are stone cold favourites. Striplin’s heavy groover ’Give Me Your Love’, Eighties Ladies’ infectiously funky ‘Eighties ladies’ and Jaymz Bedford’s wiry, angular ‘Just Keep My Boogie’ are also standouts but every track here is class – check Ayers’ own laid back ‘Everybody’ and the super chilled semi spoken word ‘Remember To Remember’ from Rick Holmes. Great stuff.
