This six-disc set beautifully showcases the stellar funk and soul recordings of underrated 80s R&B stalwarts Starpoint – a group who thrillingly navigated their way through an ever-changing R&B landscape of the decade from post-disco electro-funk to searing power ballads and hip- hop-driven New Jack Swing.

Built around the nucleus of the four Maryland-based Phillips brothers – Ernesto, George, Orlando and Greg – the group became Starpoint in 1980 with the addition of gifted Nigerian bassist Kayode Adeyemo and dynamic lead vocalist Renée Diggs, who!s five-octave range is a wonder of Whitney-like proportions.

They hit big with the electro-funk dancefloor juggernaut “Don!t Be So Serious’ in 1983, which lead to the band signing to Elektra. Their most-lucrative period followed, including the massive crossover success of 1985 album “Restless’ co-produced by Billy Ocean hitmaker Keith Diamond – featuring the hits “Object Of My Desire! and “What You Been Missin’.
Other key hits that followed include the feisty pop-funk top 10 R&B hit “He Wants My Body’ co- produced by Preston Glass (Aretha/Whitney) and slamming top 10 dance smash “I Want You – You Want Me’ produced by New Jack Swing superstar Teddy Riley (Bobby Brown/Michael Jackson).

Compiled and produced for SoulMusic Records by Adam Mattera, the set includes extensive career-spanning liner notes by UK music journalist Charles Waring plus top notch artwork from Roger Williams and excellent mastering by Donald Cleveland.
