ODDS ‘N’ BODS
SUPREME RECORDS sadly now get greedy with an 104bpm ‘HRH Mix No. 3‘ of Princess, which brings in the ‘Billie Jean’ bass virtually from the beginning but without the Alternative Version‘s shock impact (again it’s confusingly labelled) . . . Jeff Young’s 103½bpm Candlelight Mix of Peter Royer is indeed now out, incorporating Dexter Wansel’s piano . . . Brass Construction’s US 12in ‘Give And Take’ continues to climb as the choice of DJs who buy their records, now they’ve heard the disappointing LP and different UK 12in (although doubtless the mailing list effect will have begun to bite by next week’s chart) . . . Rene & Angela’s video on ‘6.20 Soul Train’ really helped their single’s sales on Saturday, as did Luther Vandross’s ditto a week earlier: this Friday’s acts are Jaki Graham, Odyssey, ‘D’ Train, Warren Mills, Tavares, Ike & Tina Turner . . . Al Jarreau’s Wembley-recorded ‘In London’ concert is new out in the States on Warner Home Video . . . Jean Carn is with Norman Connors’ band next Wednesday (11) at London’s Festival Hall — at least I suppose she is, all the posters spell her “Carne”! . . . Bobby Womack will be at Hammersmith Odeon for five solid nights, October 9-13 . . . Womack and Womack have left Elektra to start a label of their own, called Sar II in homage to Linda Womack’s father Sam Cooke’s own label Sar, on which the Womack brothers recorded as the Valentinos such as their 1964 classic ‘It’s All Over Now’ . . . Tramaine turns out to be Edwin Hawkins’ sister, and sang with his Singers . . . Select Records, UTFO and Full Force, amongst others, are fighting a rearguard action by attempting to sue all the makers of answer versions to ‘Roxanne Roxanne’, citing unfair business competition, copyright infringement and trademark misuse — additional complaints apply to the misleadingly packaged cover version album ‘The Complete Story Of Roxanne‘ on Compleat . . . Phil Canty (Kidderminster) is keen for DJs to co-ordinate a Disco-Aid scheme tied in with Live-Aid: the only way I see something like that having any more impact than the present essentially small scale type of charity disco gigs (from which of course even the smallest contribution counts) is if, say, the majority of clubs across the country could be persuaded on one particular night to synchronise for a special nationally publicised event from which absolutely all proceeds would go to Live-Aid — this just might re-tempt the public into digging deep again, but are club owners big hearted enough? . . . Mark Wimmers & Ben Evans have revived their ‘The Spice Of Life’ ancient and modern Black American music night every Friday, this time at Manchester’s Cloud Nine, starting this week . . . Colin Hudd revives 1982 at Dartford Flicks this Friday (6) . . . Saturday (7) finds Baz Fe Jazz & Andy McConnell with the Tommy Chase Quartet live at a late night Jazz/Salsa Fish Fry, in Bermondsey at 99 Rotherhithe Street (now that sounds like a warehouse party what is a warehouse party!) — Baz is also at Nottingham Rock City’s alldayer with Womack & Womack live on Sunday (8) . . . Chris Hill returns on Monday (9) to Walker’s Club Café in Newcastle Upon Tyne (where Phil Mitchell and Adrian Allen may have been wacky, but more to the point they’re weekly — chart contributors, that is!) . . . Dom McLeman, an ex-mobile jock now in banking, is currently sweltering in Vanuatu amidst (I think?) the Melanesian Islands, where it’s so hot that vinyl records warp and the only music available is Asian bootlegged tapes of old material: however, Tony Bromwich at Newcastle’s Hitsville USA sells him all the “hot” new stuff by remote control, storing the vinyl until Dom’s return and instead personally cassetting his purchases for airmail delivery! . . . South Eastern Disco Assn members meet at 8pm this Sunday (8) in Canterbury’s Coach & Horses . . . Radio Thamesmead’s breakfast show presenter Jamie Wisdom (interviewing Streetwave/StreetSounds boss Morgan Khan next Wednesday 7-9am on the pioneering closed circuit legal community station) lost his pub residency and is after another East London/Thames Estuary gig on 0322-72208 . . . Solar and Horizon may come and go, but West London’s JBC 96.95FM carries on regardless, and is very listenable anyway (if you’re within its very local range) . . . Steve Collins, come back soon! . . . Paul Major, his residency sold from under him, is after another good Midlands dance gig on 0455-291624 . . . Kidderminster’s syndicated local newspaper disco columnist Brian Davies does Tues/Wed/Sat at Stourport’s brand new Plato’s, where this month’s Tuesday star PAs are Dante & Sonique (10), Miquel Brown (17), Kelly Marie (24) . . . Andy Caddy, writing a fortnightly Soul Press column in his local Barnet newspaper, sent me a cassette of his mixes that are amongst the best I’ve ever heard — now all he needs is a gig with two varispeed decks! . . . Nick Ratcliffe (Portsmouth Ritzy/Guildford Cinderellas Rockerfellas) reflects this Madonna mad era with a ‘Medonna Medley’ (sic) which neatly and smoothly blends all her most danceable hits, with doubled-up and edited effects instead of digital delay . . . John ‘Razorblade’ Rushford & Julian ‘Slipmat’ Guffogg (Ashford, Kent) recommend Dutch radio KRO 675KHz on Sundays 11am for an hour long ‘And The Beat Goes On‘ continuous mix of upfront material — their own home-produced mixing efforts are good if over busy when remixing/editing one record, less neat when seguing/blending between records, but as actual remixers they’ve already interested some record companies . . . Tricky Dicky Scanes starts selling Gary London’s rare boots and Disconets from next Thursday at Record Cellar in Newport Court (behind Leicester Square tube) . . . King Enri has a wicked nomination for Slimmer Of The Year — suffice to hint his initials are R.H. . . . Boys Town Gang creator Bill Motley died of AIDS two weeks ago . . . Norman Scott refused a fortune for copies every time he packs the floor with a cassette he made in 1983 at Harringey Bolts when macho George Michael rapped and sang over the dub side of Rockers Revenge ‘Walking On Sunshine’ . . . Plymouth Sound radio DJ Brian Day has opened the gay Friday Cruisers at Plymouth Studio 84, jocked by Glyn Warren . . . Adrian Parkin is now full time Mon-Sat at Huddersfield’s Hi-NRG Gemini Club . . . I promised not to reveal which well known record producer/DJ huffily said “Record company presidents don’t go around hitting their producers”! . . . Record Shack released it last Christmas but now, since it’s been a Continental summer smash, Epic have picked up the 112¾bpm Video Kids ‘Woodpeckers From Space‘ (TA 6504) . . . Atlantic for some reason (unsold stock?) have re-serviced the bright smacking 115¾bpm Stacy Lattisaw & Johnny Gill ‘Block Party‘ (B9719T) . . . Danish DJ Kenneth Baker, touring Europe for inspiration, reports radio in Austria plays lots of soul but also Madonna once or twice an hour, while the Jocelyn-ish Amii Stewart & Mike Francis ‘Together‘ is worth looking out for . . . Dave Clark (Barking Chains) feels fed up that in Lanzarote all the DJs even in bars use SL 1200 decks, and massive Dynacord mixers — at least he didn’t hear Opus! . . . Anthony Bernards’ letter last week winding up Damon Rochefort (now there’s two of a kind!) reveals that the notorious Chris Ellis is still alive and well, and living in Lancashire — how nostalgic . . . Loose Ends, along with Total Contrast and Peter Royer, failed to turn up at the Edinburgh Soul Club for a PA last month, without warning or apology from responsible pluggers Hot Licks (who got them as far as Newcastle I know — so did ET’s battery fail?) . . . Danny D & Collusion’s great but oddly ignored (except by radio) ‘Party People‘ appears fated to be another One That Got Away in 1985 — why? . . . Breakers queuing up below the Disco 85 (NB: not the next 20 places) include No Way Jose (Espanol), Charlie Singleton 12in, Luther Vandross, Weather Girls, Prince ‘Raspberry Beret’, Doug E. Fresh, Sylvia Bennett, Class Action, Billy Griffin ‘Systematic’, Pressure Point, Shirley Lites, Stevie Wonder, John Ingram, Rockie Robbins, Juicy, Nile Rodgers ‘Stay Out Of The Light’, Roberta Gilliam, PP Arnold, Red Hot Chilli Peppers ‘Hollywood (Africa)’, Rosie Gaines . . . Music Week didn’t receive my column in time for the current issue as it took three days by first class mail from North Wales: at least it arrived eventually, which is more than many of the records sent me do — as I’ve suggested before, to be sure please bike ’em (to my home address) . . . I was staying in a house party which included a crowd of kids, and it was the under-10s who kept spinning around on their backs to the music! . . . Darren Fogel keeps dropping cryptic hints that suggest he’s to be seen in ‘East Enders’ (not that I’ve ever watched it) . . . Rob Harknett (Harlow) only needed three records to satisfy the returned holidaymakers last week, Baltimora ‘Tarzan Boy’, Black Lace ‘Megamix’, Madonna ‘Into The Groove’, played in rotation — yup, IT’S GOTTA BE MADONNA!
HAZELL DEAN has taken advantage of the original’s unavailability by covering ‘They Say It’s Gonna Rain’ for her debut Parlophone release (12R 6107), not fully available for four weeks but promo-ed in a chugging 0-115bpm Europop flavoured Indian Summer Mix (the opening chants suggesting “Injun”, rather than the weather). It was in fact the lyrics’ topicality during this dreadful summer that prompted Hi-NRG club DJs belatedly to activate the by then already deleted Kerry Delius version. I’d have hoped the weather might be better by Hazell’s release date, so maybe she ought to rush it instead!
CAMEO: ‘Single Life’ (Club JABX 21)
My and seemingly everyone else’s fave of the moment, this superb subtly made very powerful sparse 110½bpm nagging pusher is filled with bits to hook you, especially the Ennio Morricone spaghetti western twiddles, “single guys clap your hands” and “eyes right” instructions, and the devilish way “life” is teasingly left until the next beat after you’ve already anticipated it. Brilliant!
LUKK Featuring FELICIA COLLINS: ‘On The One’ (Important Records TANT 6)
I can’t bear it (and you’ll see why) but initial calculations suggest this languidly rolling dead catchy lurching jiggler, like Five Star singing to a Jocelyn/Jenny-ish backing, has been slowed here by about one beat per minute — which without going right through it again means it now must be roughly (deep breath!) 103-103¾-105¾-103¼-106¼-103¾-102¼-103-104¾-105-104¼bpm (inst flip). You won’t be aware of this, and the thing is a hit!
CONQUEST: ‘Optimistic’ (US Epic 49-05255)
Amir Bayyan-produced excellent chaps chanted and muttered Johnny Guitar Watson-type buoyantly jittering infectious 97bpm jogger with a braying trumpet solo and bags of rhythm ‘n’ bluesy sass that’ll have you poppin’ and boppin’ by the time it’s through (dub flip). What a blast!
KLEEER: ‘Never Cry Again (Remix)’ (US Atlantic 0-86850)
Gradually rising to the top on their album and now superbly remixed, this smoothly clonking slick nagging 107¾bpm roller has a soulfully intense lead vocal weaving away behind the prominent dry percussion rather in the old style of Slave, but with a cleaner more modern sound (dub/edit flip). Another hot one.
ROBERTA GILLIAM: ‘All I Want Is My Baby’ (US Sutra SUD 036)
A real sneaky tugger, this low key bassily burbling and ticking 101½bpm Jam-ish swayer weaves away while Roberta squalls, wails and worries in het up soulful style behind the beat (inst flip), great searing stuff.
SHEILA E.: ‘A Love Bizarre’ (LP ‘Sheila E. In Romance 1600’ Warner Bros/Paisley Park 925 317-1)
Forget the rest, this track’s the best! The only one from an otherwise self-produced patchy fast set on which she actually collaborates with Prince as co-producer/writer/arranger/singer, it’s a marathon 12 minute 113¾-0bpm mesmeric groove in which the glamorous percussionist chants lightly ever choogling sax and typical purple mutterings to create an exquisite filigree of funk. Hot!
JOHN INGRAM: ‘Can I Take You Home Tonight’ (Mirror Records 12BUTCH 2)
Brother Butch-produced striding 116½bpm swinger soulfully sung in typical Ingram (the group) style, with a busy backing that may at first obscure the power as it’s a grower — and nothing to do with Lisa Lisa.
JANICE CHRISTIE: ‘One Love’ (US SuperTronics RY-009)
Copping more than a lick from Colonel Abrams, this friskily leaping and jiggling 117½bpm bounder should slot nicely between ‘Trapped’ and ‘Music Is The Answer’ (two dubs on flip) — which ought to make it interesting, right?
WALLY BADAROU: ‘Chief Inspector’ (LP ‘Echoes’ Island ILPS 9822)
Spotted and now promoted as another ‘Twilight’, the multi-instrumentalist’s jauntily trucking little 100½bpm electronic keyboards tripper could well be just that. Doubtless a longer 12in will follow?
NICCI: ‘So In Love’ (Debut DEBT 127)
Jill Saward co-prod/penned bass burbled subduedly cooing wriggly 0-112½bpm “New London” bubbler, very pleasant and effective and as deep as a flower pot (dub flip).
BOBBY WOMACK: ‘I Wish He Didn’t Trust Me So Much’ (LP ‘So Many Rivers’ US MCA MCA-5617)
On ideally a terrific satisfying listening set, probably most danceable in the privacy of your own home rather than at an echoing club, it’s noticeable that so far still the hottest track is this realistically worded 7in-issued 89bpm smoocher, equally good being the 48bpm ‘Let Me Kiss It Where It Hurts‘, other slowies being the 54bpm ‘Got To Be With You Tonight‘, sombre rollcall started 0-80bpm ‘Only Survivor‘ and especially his 62½bpm revival of Sam Cooke’s ‘That’s Where It’s At‘, other revivals being of the Impressions’ 113½bpm ‘Gypsy Woman‘ and his own 124¼bpm ‘Check It Out‘, which with the 120bpm ‘So Baby Don’t Leave Home Without It‘, 124¼bpm ‘Whatever Happened To The Times?‘ and 130bpm title track comprise the uptempo material, none of which sound like an actual “disco” hit — which could be all to the good.
THE O’JAYS: ‘Just Another Lonely Night’ (US Philadelphia International B-50013)
This 7in from their now EMI distributed album remains its most played track, a typically comfortable (0-)107bpm semi-slow Philly Sound soul swayer with just its steady beat nodding at modernity.
CLIFF RICHARD: ‘She’s So Beautiful’ (EMI EMI-5531)
Although in fact written by someone else, this (0-)137bpm MoR skipper produced, played, arranged and phrased by Stevie Wonder sounds as if it’s all his own work (on 7in with dub-ish flip), from Dave Clark’s ‘Time’ musical.
WARREN G. BURRIS: ‘Why Not Love Me’ (US Becket Records BKA-45-21)
A ringing telephone is answered by a sultry lady saying “David doesn’t live here anymore” — which doesn’t worry Warren ‘cos he’s calling to express his lurve for her, in a nice gently swaying soulful 72½bpm love smoocher on 7in which importers here have yet to sniff out.
SUGARFOOT: ‘Kiss’ (LP ‘Sugar Kiss’ Warner Bros 925 168-1)
After several weeks on import it looks as if this Roger Troutman-prod/co-penned set’s hits are this very softly started and probably impossible to mix (0-)55¼-110½bpm squeakily whispered intensifying ultimately jaunty light weaving jitterer (with no bass or balls at all in the pressing), and the beefier tranquil gentle 74-0bpm ‘I’m Your Sugar‘.
JAMAICA BOYS: ‘Let Me Hold You Closer’ (Cooltempo COOLX 113)
Bernard Wright, Lenny White, Marcus Miller and Chaka Khan’s brother Mark Stevens get together to make some 103½bpm slinky soul-reggae, all very cool (dub flip).
ROSIE GAINES: ‘Skool-ology (Ain’t No Strain)’ (US Epic 49-05267)
Rosie-raps, scats and sings grittily to a jerkily snapping 121¾bpm electronic rhythm that owes something to Chaka Khan, although the rest of the song doesn’t (inst flip) — and the vocal’s the best bit.
