ODDS ‘N’ BODS
MARVIN GAYE ‘Dream Of A Lifetime’ LP (CBS 26239) is now out here and sneaks up your trouser leg, it really having grown on me as driving music in sun-baked North Wales all last week, especially the rhapsodic old Motown-record title track . . . London-based John Morales of the M&M team has remixed a bubbly 0-115½bpm Five Star ‘All Fall Down‘ (Tent PT 40040) and much punchier 117½bpm Harold Faltermeyer ‘Axel F’ (MCA MCAT 949), while finally out is the originally promoed traffic-introed gradually unfurling 116¼bpm US Club Remix of DeBarge ‘Rhythm Of The Night‘ (Gordy TMGT 1376) . . . Touch Of Class in its horrid UK 12in re-edit appears to be much hated — get the original import! . . . Island have promoed a great sleazily pattering jiggly slow 90bpm radical US remake of Animal Nightlife ‘Love Is Just The Great Pretender‘ . . . The Style Council, notwithstanding my criticism of their need to appear on ‘6.20 Soul Train’, sound quite soulful on the pent-up dubified rolling 102bpm ‘The Lodgers (Club Mix)‘, only available in this form (Polydor say) as part of a 3-track promo, their LP’s lighter D.C. Lee-duetted 0-101bpm vocal version being pleasant too . . . Glasgow’s husky soul singer Grant Mitchell has pressed up white labels of his group Pure Glass before finalising a deal, containing the attractive Steely Dan-ish 124½bpm ‘Don’t Be Afraid‘, spare dense lurchers 116½bpm ‘Let The Music Talk‘, 0-111bpm ‘Dress Me Up’— with a bit more individuality, another AWB? . . . NW10 (The best peoples postcode!) is the name under which the rest of Phil Fearon’s family have recorded, very Galaxy meets Five Star, due soon . . . Tony Monson in a significant career move has dropped his daily breakfast show on Solar FM as a condition of returning to the legal airwaves on Essex Radio 95.3/96.4FM just on Saturday nights (9pm-1am, the central two hours containing an exhaustive Street Sales Chart) — not many people realise he started as a top radio jock in Bermuda around 1965 . . . David Grant and Odyssey showed up, as did Music Week columnists Barry Lazell and myself, but not a single one of the expected record company people bothered to travel through the sun to Southend for Essex Radio’s soul-launching lunchtime celebration last Saturday (well, we had fun!) . . . Tom Wilson says rumours of his redundancy were much exaggerated, as he was never on an actual contract to Radio Forth and yet still works as a stand-in DJ there — he adds that Stax has recently joined the list of non-“needletime” labels which include Streetwave, Salsoul, Fantasy, Milestone, Champion, Factory, Sonet and even (briefly) Boiling Point, Manhattan . . . Friday’s ‘6.20 Soul Train’ has Elton John & Millie Jackson, Pennye Ford, Sister Sledge, Chic, Stevie Wonder . . . Cab Calloway’s voice and stage presence were impressively undiminished, considering he must be pushing on 80, on BBC 1’s recent marvellous ‘The Cotton Club Comes To The Ritz‘ — I do hope today’s hip hoppers, Kid Creole fans and black music followers in general managed to catch it especially for all the vintage film clips, to see where their music came from 50 and more years ago (the sound may change but the attitude remains the same) . . . Sheila E will be playing the “love interest” in a rap movie ‘Krush Groove’ loosely based on real life manager/producer Russell Simmons (of Jazzy Jay’s ‘Cold Chillin’ In The Spot‘ B-side fame!), featuring such of his acts as Run-DMC, Fat Boys, Kurtis Blow . . . Freddie Jackson topped US Black 45s, Lisa Lisa 12in Sales, while Paul Hardcastle ’19’ has indeed started to chart across the board there . . . Loose Ends old ‘A Little Spice’ LP has hit the US Black chart as their ‘Hangin’ On A String’ single continues to climb — I see Billboard’s review echoes my own controversial view of that album, “Very smooth, very listenable and very forgettable” . . . Disco breakers under the 85 here include Michele Gold ‘Lost In Love’ (Dutch Palace), Emotions ‘Miss Your Love’ (Motown), Melba Moore ‘When You Love Me Like This (Remix)’ (US Capitol), Keisa Brown ‘I Tripped’ (US Park Place LP), Michael Lovesmith ‘Break The Ice’ (US Motown), Trevor Walters ‘Love’s A Lie’ (Polydor), Well Red ‘Limit Of Your Loving’ (Paladin), Touch Of Class ‘Let Me Be Your Everything (UK Re-edit)’ (Atlantic), York ‘Don’t Stop’/’You Are Everything’ (US Passion Records LP), Four Tops ‘Sexy Ways’ (US Motown 7in) — check these and the main chart’s new entries as a week in the sun followed by a trip to Essex Radio rather set my schedule back, and there may be no time for full reviews this week . . . Dr York’s label name seems likely to upset the Personal set-up, who distribute our own Passion logo Stateside . . . Hi-NRG stars appeared side by side in The Sun last week, Sinitta because she’ll co-star with David Essex in his stage show ‘Mutiny’, and Angie Gold because she got busted for chucking things at her boyfriend’s ex-lover — and still neither can get a pop hit here! . . . Norman Scott runs a new Hi-NRG club the first Thursday every month at Luton Tropicana Beach, Sundays still finding Bolts at Ronelles . . . Take Three PA Fri (7) at Canning Town Tidal Basement, Sat (8) at Harlow Whispers while Friday also finds the Cool Notes live at Yeovil Electric Studio — where the following weekend (21-23) there’s a South West Soul Society Summer Weekender with Graham T, Paul Lewis, Paul Clark, Chris Dinnis, John C & Chris Stagg serving up everything from Latin to funk (£25 covers all four sessions plus two nights hotel accommodation, or £5 for all four sessions, £2.50 per session alone, full details on 0935-74886) . . . Monday (10) Mark Farley & Pete Haigh plus regular guest Richard Searling start weekly soul at Morecambe Harveys on Sandylands Promenade, preceded this Sun (9) by Pete doing a “black music spot” on Steve Barker’s 2-5pm Radio Lancashire 96.4FM show . . . Rob Harknett (027979-2379) needs a new copy of Mad Jock Cameron ‘Strip The Willow’ . . . Miami Sound Machine’s imminent ‘The Conga‘ should prove a crowd pleasing corny 123¼bpm old fashioned Latin jangler . . . Alessi ‘Oh Lori‘, long a revived biggie around Essex, now seems to have spread south of the river to Kent . . . Edinburgh black music label Move have new Oliver Cheatham product in the can — can’t wait! . . . David Grant intended the 12in version of ‘Where Our Love Begins’ to be like a mid-’70s Philadelphia international extended version but himself admits he prefers the 7in as somewhere the song got lost . . . Cooltempo sent out promotionally a pair of very snazzy white (with gold logo) slipmats, thick and good quality, which should rapidly replace Phil Fearon, Malcolm X and other models on hip turntables . . . A Certain Ratio revived ‘Shack Up’ back in the New Romantic era, I know, I know, but that’s not the point! . . . LET’S TALK ABOUT SEX!
B.B. & Q. BAND: ‘Genie’ (Dutch Break Records 1850960)
Jacques Fred Petrus certainly learnt something from Change’s spell with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, as now his production technique is identical on this very SOS Band-like 100bpm cool ticker (confusingly titled alternative mix flip), exploding already ahead of UK release on Cooltempo.
JAMES BROWN: ‘Sex Machine’ (Boiling Point POSPX 751)
As mentioned is a 4-track 12in EP with (for the first time since it flipped ‘For Goodness Sake Look At Those Cakes’ in ’78) the full length 0-108¼-109¼(“bridge”)-108bpm ‘Get Up I Feel Like Being A Sex Machine’, long LP version 112-118-117½-117-118½-125(“funky drummer”)-119½-119-119½-120½-121½bpm ‘Get Up Offa That Thing‘ and similarly 108½-107½-109½-108bpm ‘Get On The Good Foot‘, plus the modern funk pioneering 128-130bpm ‘Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag‘ . . . which, as a point of interest, James Brown himself played me in July 1964 (along with ‘It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World’) a full year before its eventual release, delayed by a dispute with record company King from whom he had temporarily split to record for Smash (he ended up just doing instrumentals for the latter). Uhh! Get down!
PAUL HARDCASTLE: ‘King Tut (Remix)’ (Chrysalis CHS 322860)
Will it never end? Now indeed, as well as the pressings which duplicate the Destruction Mix’s B-side, ’19 — The Final Story’ has also appeared almost as originally planned flipped by this US hit remix of a typical tinkly 124¾bpm attractive electro instrumental which has been hot on hard to find import, plus (to satisfy BPI/Gallup chart eligibility requirements) the 115bpm ‘Fly By Night‘ which has appeared throughout as a flipside track to ’19’.
KLEEER: ‘Lay Ya Down Ez’ (LP ‘Seeekret’ Atlantic 781254-1)
This softly sexual lovely logical 0-108¾bpm follow-up to ‘Intimate Connection’ is the sizzler on a set that’ll be reviewed in full next week.
MAZE featuring Frankie Beverly: ‘Twilight’ (US Capitol V-8643)
Madly jaunty percolating little 0-108bpm instrumental, totally inconsequential yet nagging as hell, tucked away as flip to ‘Too Many Games’.
PHIL FEARON & GALAXY: ‘You Don’t Need A Reason’ (Ensign 12ENY 517)
All the usual trademarks but faster at 0-126¼bpm for his friskiest bounder yet (dub flip), mixed by John Morales.
T.C. CURTIS: ‘Take It Easy’ (Virgin/Hot Melt VS 77512)
Purposefully strutting ‘Caribbean Jean’-ish 116½bpm chugger even more strangulatedly yelped than before but possibly a stronger song — if not TOO ‘Billie Queen’! — currently on white label (inst flip).
MICHELLE GOLD: ‘Lost In Love’ (Dutch Palace Records 851204)
Butch Ingram-prod/penned huskily plaintive weaving 97½bpm jogger with Grover Washington Jr’s doodling sax squealing gently through the hot tempo (LP Version flip), great for summer groin grinding.
SAHARA: ‘Love So Fine’ (Elite DAZZ 38)
Extremely clean spare bass-popped 108bpm cool semi-instrumental strider in Jimmy Jam-goes-Direct Drive style with just a little female agonising (stark less good Club Mix flip).
ONE WAY: ‘Serving It’ (LP ‘Wrap Your Body’ German MCA 252170-1)
The great “let’s talk about sex!” 12in is now out here, ‘Let’s Talk‘ (MCA MCAT 972), while on LP this vocodered 110½bpm Zapp-er is even more P’funky (full review next week).
CURTIS HAIRSTON: ‘I Want You (All Tonight) (M&M Remix)’ (RCA/Pretty Pearl PT 40170)
Busy John Morales has now remixed this original hit from ’83 into a less cluttered — and not necessarily improved — 114bpm loping lurcher (dub/edit flip).
LW5: ‘Ripe For The Picking (Extended Hardcastle Mix — May ’85)’ (Virgin VS 76712)
The ubiquitous Paul gets his name plastered in extra bold type across this sub-Galaxy chick ‘n’ chap-sung 113bpm Britfunk burbler.
ANTENA: ‘Life Is Too Short’ (Mercury MERX 190)
Dull electro beat box chattered 109bpm jitterer by the now London-based French chick ‘n’ chap, with some samba influences in three mixes, benefitting from Phonogram’s superior plugging.
MIQUEL BROWN: ‘The Easy Way Out’ (LP ‘Close To Perfection’ Record Shack SOHOLP8)
Sinata’s mum sings out as usual on this rollicking 134bpm galloper, the rattling 125bpm ‘One Hundred Percent‘, dragging 109bpm ‘Learn The Lines 0f Love‘ and more — however her real ear-opener is the truly lovely ’60s soulful melodically swaying 107½bpm title track, worthy of vintage Dionne Warwick for instance and deserving wide attention.
VARIOUS: ‘Passion Tracking Volume III‘ LP (Passion PADLP 103)
Un-medleyed compilation containing only two new cuts, the currently hot cantering 0-129½bpm LOUISE THOMAS ‘One Way Ticket’ (not Neil Sedaka’s Eruption hit, though close at times!) and recently imported zingily symphonic 130½bpm CHARADE featuring Norma Lewis ‘Victim Of Love‘.
STEVE RODWAY: ‘Keep On Walking’ (Record Shack SOHOT44)
Quite nagging jittery building 115½bpm dated disco rather than Hi-NRG (inst flip).
LIFE FORCE: ‘Man In A Million (Remix)’ (Polo POLO 1238)
Chick-sung smoothly flying 139bpm bounder (inst flip), evidently now finally out after being on promo for months in two successive mixes.
F.Y.C.: ‘Johnny Come Home’ (London LONX 68)
Fine Young Cannibals go the Bronski Beat route with an anguished bouncy (0-)133½bpm breezer full of stripped down ’60s motifs and muted trumpet (dip the flip for a Reagan cut-up).
VICIOUS PINK: ‘CCCan’t You See (Exxx-tended Re-mixxx)’ (Parlophone 12RX 6074)
The year old almost-hit gets yet another 123¾bpm remix, its least emphatic but the one that’s got through to gay clubs now.
VALERIE CLAIRE: ‘I’m A Model’ (Record Shack SOHOT45)
Swinging and swaying (0-)107bpm stroller, nice and not Hi-NRG as such but its sassy vocal has more that type of appeal (inst flip).
BONNIE POINTER: ‘Heaven Must Have Sent You’ (Motown TMGT 1383)
1979’s bumpily loping 128½bpm Elgins revival, climaxed in Ella sings Satchmo style, has doubtless been repressed to meet export demand.
L.A. FORCE: ‘Action (Night Action)’ (Challenge TAL 15)
Old fashioned chap-sung 128bpm galloper with routine rattling breaks (inst flip).
MARTINIQUE: ‘No Regrets’ (Young Blood YBT 0090)
Belated UK release for the breathy French(-Canadian) sung (0-)122bpm revival of Edith Piaf’s ‘Non Je Ne Regrette Rien’.
SIMPLY RED: ‘Money’s Too Tight (To Mention)’ (Elektra EKR 9T)
Following the 400 Blows trend, here’s an interesting still soulful blue-eyed (57/114-0-)113½bpm clarified remake of the Valentine Brothers classic, counterpointing its criticism of Reaganomics with the question “did the earth move for you, Nancy?”!
A CERTAIN RATIO: ‘Sounds Like Something Dirty’ (Factory FAC 128)
Rather good extremely intense (0-)117½-54½/109-115½/57¾-0bpm instrumental jitterer with jazzy freeform sax amidst electronic effects and a somewhat switchable beat, most danceable on its central section, actually dub flip to the untidier ‘Wild Party‘.
ABC: ‘Vanity Kills (Mendlesohn Mix)’ (Neutron NTX 109)
Now guess who uses a Brass Construction backbeat? At least they sound brightly confident again on this jerkily skittering 124¾-0bpm smacker.
RICK SPRINGFIELD: ‘Celebrate Youth (Dance Mix)’ (RCA PT 49986)
Mark Kamins-remixed very dense pounding 109¼-108¾-109-108½-0bpm techno-pop disco judderer (dub flip), made for large club systems and doubtless selling initially to DJs.
DOPPELGANGER: ‘Communication Breakdown’ (Manhattan 12MT 1)
More juddering 108¼bpm Art Of Noise-ish techno-disco, ugly monotony outside of its intended environment (dub flip).
JEAN-MICHEL JARRE: ‘Zoolookologie’ (Polydor POSPX 740)
Jittery (0-)115½bpm hip hop electro for breakdancers (in two mixes).
