Dynasty - Adventures in the Land of Music (1980)

Often widely known for Camp Lo's sampling of the title track, this is Dynasty's best album, covering a variety of styles, whilst maintaining the Solar-records poppy funk synth sound. The album starts with two pounding disco-funk tracks, moves on to the obligatory but very good ballad track, maintains momentum with two killer tracks before stumbling at the only really poor track, the dodgy doo-woppy 'Something to Remember', but the amazing 'Adventures' soon pops out of nowhere, with the funky 'Ice Breaker' rounding off the album. On the whole a surprisingly strong album for anyone with any interest in disco, boogie or funk.
