May 8, 1982: Jerome, The Band A.K.A., Ransom Mackenzie & Friends, A Taste Of Honey, High Fashion

ODDS ‘N’ BODS

DISCOSCENE ’82, the Midlands fifth successive annual exhibition of both mobile and club equipment, is this Sunday afternoon (noon-7pm) at St John’s Hotel, Warwick Road, Solihull . . . Rod Temperton was amongst the guests for CBS’s tasty Herbie Hancock album preview at Holborn’s Canteen (ex-Blitz) — It was the food that was tasty, and we all got a ‘Lite Me Up’ cigarette lighter too! . . . Center X was originally scheduled for freezing November until guess which star DJs stamped their feet and said they’ll only do it if it’s in October . . . Phonogram picked up Change and Blue Feathers, and evidently have a Cameo 4-tracker coming . . . Tubbs has rejoined Nat and Gee to make Light Of The World a threesome, their ‘Check Us Out’ 12in being due imminently . . . Finesse’s Mel Gaynor got married on Saturday, so Sketch, Breeze and the boys gave him the bumps last Tuesday in the middle of my ’80s soul set at Le Beat Route! . . . Rudi ‘Rapper’ Gilpin and Lenny Henry were keeping open house in Willesden for a party that was due to continue from last Friday through to Bank Holiday Monday! . . . John Dene (Dunstable Tiffany’s/Leighton Buzzard Unicorn) has mixed together a super ‘Glyph Medley ’82’ of all Earth Wind & Fire’s hits which he plays off cassette, easily as good as the best released medleys . . . US Capitol have used old Warner Bros material for a promo-only Ashford & Simpson sampler LP . . . Oxford DJ Dave Seamer has formed a Board Of Trade licensed entertainments agency specialising in discos, so local jocks can get on his books by calling 0885-40054 or writing to 90 Barracks Lane, Oxford . . . Cleveland Area DJ Assn invite all DJs (they’ll get some CBS freebies!) to their next meet on Sunday 16th May between 7-10pm at Middlesbrough’s Post House, further details from Graham Bond on 0642-325112 . . . Thames Valley DJ Assn have decided not to re-affiliate with the DJ Federation this year . . . Steve Dee (High Wycombe 443508) has the UK agency for Drum Drops, a set of 12in records which represent all drumming and percussion styles for use primarily by musicians needing a background beat when practising or making demos, jingles, etc . . . Gaz Anderson, still at Chelsea’s Main Squeeze on Sundays, starts doing all the other nights at Mayfair’s Fred & Ginger’s in New Burlington Street, next Thursday (13) . . . Eddie Gee has a “pre-exam funktion” for Loughborough University Jazz-Funk Society on Wednesday (12) at Loughborough’s Adam & Eve’s — which he ominously declares could be the town’s last jazz-funk fling unless well supported . . . Nigel Porter says surprisingly the electro domination of Leicester is waning, with soul-funk-jazz nights now cropping up all over — the one that he and some chums do has moved to every Monday at the Airport Club, Humberstone Gate . . . Sammy DeHavilland at Halesowen Liberty’s gets such a crowd on Sundays that it’s now members only, but membership also entities you to half-price entry before 11pm on Fridays . . . Richard ‘Dimples’ Fields ‘If It Ain’t One Thing … It’s Another’ replaced Stevie Wonder at the top of the US Soul chart, while the US Disco topper is Cheri ‘Murphy’s Law‘ (US Venture 12in) which I’ve still yet to hear, although Radio West’s Ray Edwards was raving about it as long ago as the Maze gigs . . . Richard Jon Smith is the latest UK soul hit in the USA . . . US black music retailers, evidently to the industry’s surprise, find that people prefer to buy singles on 12in — so what else is new? . . . Jane Fonda joins in the current US craze for physical jerk records with ‘Jane Fonda’s Workout’ (US Columbia LP) on which she gives exercise instructions between tracks by the Jacksons, Brothers Johnson and more (she also has a chain of health clubs, it seems) . . . Brooklyn’s Clyde Davis, chairman of the OPEC record pool (Organization Of Professional Entertainers of Color), is currently in London scouting for material on behalf of New York labels like Prism, West End . . . Adrian Martin (Rhyl Jollie Nites), who has to go to Manchester for new records, reports that Peter Brown’s ‘Crank It Up (Funktown)‘ and ‘Can’t Be Love‘ have recently made a real comeback on the North Wales coast . . . Peter Halliwell (Rochdale) has to travel each week to Bury to stand any chance of finding new releases and anything on 12in . . . Maybe disco is an urban music form because only shops in cities stock it? . . . Martin Platts (Blackburn and I still can’t mindread where you work!) reckons that Nelson Sands Arndale Centre Jocks Chris Kavanagh and Garry Hanna are the best he’s seen in Lancashire, and he also rather oddly bets Ashford & Simpson get more support from DJs now Fred Dove is not down their necks (eh?) . . . That’ll take some fancy explaining, or else it’ll be bye bye WEA! . . . Weary fears he’s over-exposed on this page . . . Big Al and Dave Munday say “ta” to all who helped make their disabled kids disco at Guildford Cinderella Rockerfella’s so successful . . . Theo Loyla (Kingston upon Thames) recommends Denis Jason’s Disco Centre at Merstham, on the A23 between Croydon and Redhill . . . Alan Taylor (Rhyl) please note, London DJs and shops serviced with white labels by hot sweaty hand obviously get ’em quicker! . . . Soho’s Groove had closed early last Thursday, so I haven’t heard the most recent imports, but as a whole bunch of last week’s reviews weren’t printed (including the two lead Imports) there should be enough to read . . . I am now at a new address, and until I have time to contact them properly, could record companies please check with Record Mirror to discover where my review copies should now be sent? . . . Dave Brubeck ‘Take Five’ was first played at Leysdown Stage 3 by Chris Hill (wouldn’t you know?), whose latest big thing is mid-’60s jazz along the lines of Lee Morgan ‘Sidewinder’ (Blue Note LP) . . . Paul Major (Gt Yarmouth Brunswick), with reference to Jeff Young’s changeable hairstyle and nobody else, says “Put your hair in the air, and keep it there”! . . . GOOD NIGHT!


UK NEWIES

JEROME: ‘(I’m Into) Your Love’ (RCA RCAT 225).
Delightfully light and summery with a dead catchy chick breathed “I’m into your love — in such a big way” hook and interesting long lead in to Steve’s carefully controlled emoting, this Phil Swern-produced ebbing and flowing 111-110-111bpm 12in bubbly swayer eventually builds right up before dropping back to the simple repetitive title line (there’s a chix cooed instrumental flip) and is by far the best thing young Mr Jerome has ever done. If there’s any justice it’ll be a smash.

THE BAND A.K.A.: ‘Grace’ (Epic/Streetwave EPC A13-2376).
Morgan Khan may be kinda late with this superb rasping fruity sax dominated easily swaying bass rumbled and now slightly speeded up 116-114-113-114bpm 12in nagging rolling jogger, huskily souled between the main instrumental stretches, but its still so strong that it should now cross over and — a very big plus — he’s also come up with a totally instrumental version as flip!

RANSOM, MACKENZIE & FRIENDS: ‘Orange Grove’ (Smokey Joe SMJD-005).
Bass pattered chick scatted happily romping fast 131-132bpm white label 12in jazz-funk flier reaches a husky bloke before the bass explodes behind sax and piano breaks only to fade rather arbitrarily, the lurching 115-119bpm vocal ‘Keep On Working‘ A-side actually working less well.

GRANDMASTER FLASH & THE FURIOUS FIVE: ‘It’s Nasty (Genius Of Love)’ (Sugarhill SHL 111).
Extremely effective 0-102bpm 12in heavy funk alternative treatment of Tom Tom Club’s ubiquitous much covered rapper, easy to mix with other versions and possibly the strongest of all, flipped by their older 109bpm ‘The Birthday Party‘.

GEORGE NOOKS: ‘We’re In This Love Together’ (Island 12WIP 6782).
An Al Jarreau song given a good enough chugging 84bpm 12in lovers rock reading, but he hasn’t Al’s voice.

WATTY BURNETTE: ‘Dancing Shoes’ (Dread At The Controls DATC 007, via Jet Star/Rough Trade).
Lethargically starting sombre menacingly atmospheric slow downtempo 71bpm 12in reggae groin-grinder.

SHIRLEY JAMES: ‘Ask Me To Stay’ (Black Jack BJO 14).
Danny Ray’s erstwhile duetting partner – prettily warbles a brassily rumbling 69bpm 12in lovers rock jogger, surprisingly an original song.

THIRD WORLD: ‘I Wake Up Cryin’ (LP ‘You’ve Got The Power’ CBS 85563).
Getting attention for the Stevie Wonder-penned / produced / swamped 111bpm ‘Try Jah Love‘ and 69/138bpm ‘You’re Playing Us Too Close‘, the otherwise Marley-esque specialist reggae set’s best dance track is this nice 84bpm lovers rock treatment of Chuck Jackson’s Bacharach & David-penned 1961 oldie.

DENIECE WILLIAMS: ‘It’s Gonna Take A Miracle’ (CBS A2336).
The Royalettes gorgeous Bacharach-influenced 1965 smoocher given a faithful lovely 63-65-66-65bpm 7in update.

ANGELA BOFILL: ‘Tropical Love’ (Arista ARIST 12-463).
Her rapidly aging album’s best track, a beautiful lush evocative 0-87/43bpm swayer, finally makes it onto single but on 12in only as a bonus track (as is her perkily smacking jiggly 88bpm ‘Holdin’ Out For Love‘ turntable hit) to the dead slow ‘Break It To Me Gently’, which has a different 7in flip.

RENEE GEYER: ‘Say I Love You’ (Portrait PRT A2056).
Eddy Grant’s song given an Australian hit Boney M-type (but better!) breezily shuffling 116bpm 7in cod calypso treatment just right for happy holiday crowds.

OTTAWAN: ‘Hello Rio’ (Carrere CART 235).
Summer’s coming so here’s another Gibson Bros-type 129bpm 12in rattling zappy zingy Eurodisco pounder, possibly not as catchy as past hits but certainly full of life.

FOUR TOPS: ‘Baby I Need Your Loving’ (Tamla Motown TMGT 978).
Now remixed with echoing 123bpm beat brought forward, on 3-track 12in with the lurching slow ‘Yesterday’s Dreams’ and a fairly inept ‘Four Tops Medley’ — although there are sure to be people happy with the latter.

RON FRANCOIS: ‘If You Love Me’ (CBS A13-2322).
Roy Carter’s production notwithstanding, this old fashioned Real Thing-type 101-102bpm 12in plodder sways along quite pleasantly but is rather dull.

SYREETA: ‘Out The Box’ (Motown TMGT 1258).
Freaky “kiddie” introed and somewhat “little girl” squeaked beefy bass booming 118bpm 12in lurching funk bumper in ‘Behind The Groove’ style.

RAY BARRETTO: ‘The Old Castle’ (LP ‘La Cuna’ CTI 9002).
Legendary percussionist produced by Creed Taylor (in ’79) propels this recently warm specialist jazz solo filled frantically romping 0-125-127-128-129-127-0bpm Latin adaptation of the Mussourgsky piece, the 132bpm pure salsa title track swinger, and Stevie Wonder’s 0-102-104-105-107-109-110bpm ‘Pastime Paradise‘ with Latin piano and lots of sax.


IMPORTS

A TASTE OF HONEY: ‘We’ve Got The Groove’ (LP ‘Ladies Of The Eighties’ US Capitol ST-12173).
The gals new hotsie and already getting play-it-again requests, this jauntily jolting brassily braying 113bpm Latin flavoured choppy rattler “takes off” halfway between staccato lyrics which keep repeating the LP rather than song title line, while ‘Diamond Real‘ is a bassily thrusting 106-108bpm backbeat version of the Michael Wycoff recorded song, the US 7in-issued ‘Try Something New‘ a gorgeous tremulous ‘Sukiyaki’-style 50bpm revival of the Miracles 1962 slowie, less distinguished lurching smackers being the 110bpm ‘Lies’ and 107bpm ‘Sayonara’.

HIGH FASHION: ‘Feelin’ Lucky Lately’ (US Capitol 8529).
Despite an irritating slow doodling start, this Jacques Fred Petrus-produced Chic-ish chix interplayed strong shuffler settles into a side-to-side kicking 115-116-117-118bpm 12in smacking groove which synchs sensationally out of the Ritchie Family (reviewed last week), and has got the likes of Chris Hill raving.

HERBIE HANCOCK: ‘Give It All Your Heart’ (LP ‘Lite Me Up’ US Columbia FC 37928).
Determinedly lightweight and samey vocal set largely penned by Rod Temperton as if for a Quincy Jones clone, by far the best thing being this lovely long jazzy slow 76/38bpm sinuously tugging vocoder duet with Patrice Rushen, Herbie’s self-penned ‘Paradise‘ being a breathy slow 75/37bpm jogger, while the bpm similarity really becomes apparent with the uptempo cuts, most obvious being the ‘Stomp’/’Razzamataz’-ish 120bpm ‘The Fun Tracks‘ and ‘Gangsters Of The Groove’-ish 113bpm ‘Motor Mouth‘, followed by the explosively ending 121bpm ‘The Bomb‘ smacker, vocoder sung attractive long chugging 121-122-0bpm ‘Gettin’ To The Good Part‘ and Narada Michael Walden-produced smacking 120bpm ‘Can’t Hide Your Love‘.
