September 13, 1986: Disco Aid, Cameo, Phyllis Hyman, Howard Hewett, Paul Hardcastle

ODDS ‘N’ BODS

PAUL HARDCASTLE has produced the Disco Aid charity single, ‘Give Give Give’, written by Steve MacIntosh of Loose Ends, with lead vocals by Sheila Ferguson, Jean Carne, Jaki Graham, Chris Amoo, Lenny Henry, Kevin Henry, Odyssey and the Cool Notes, Kenny G on sax, and an Edwin Starr-conducted chorus of Boris Gardiner, Aswad, Smiley Culture, Tippa Irie, Phil Fearon & Galaxy, Total Contrast, Real Thing, Sinitta, Derek Green, Direct Drive, Beggar & Co, Mel & Kim, Masquerade, Toyin, Judge Dread, Keith Henry, Dizzi Heights, Press The Flesh – if every DJ buys it the week of release (it won’t of course be promoed), we’ll see the true chart impact of disco power! … London are issuing Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley ‘Jack Your Body’, followed by Marshall Jefferson ‘Move Your Body (The House Music Anthem)’, while in the US J. M. Silk have signed to RCA and Jessie Saunders to Geffen … Chicago’s Trax Records belongs to a pressing plant which merely pays local DJs for their productions to press up in limited quantities purely for the Chicago market alone – a reasonable deal, except now their pressings are even hotter elsewhere and nobody’s under contract … Elite Records here are getting into “house” music now, a stripped down style that should suit Andy Sojka’s production techniques ideally! … Geffen Records are bringing over Jessie Saunders, the Bang Orchestra, and “a top Chicago DJ with unknown house tracks” for club gigs next month, including either/or the Barry Island/Caister soul weekenders … Caister is back on October 17-19, at the Seashore camp, with Lonnie Liston Smith live plus a DJ team including Martin Collins, Graham Gold, Jonathon More, Chris Dinnis, Alex Lowes (details on 01-886 8141) … Radio London’s Soul Night Out returns next Thursday (18) with a beachwear party at Hammersmith Palais … Saturday nights have at last returned to normal on Capital Radio, with Phil Allen back doing the midnight soul show and even Tony Monson running down his sales chart again at about 1.45am (Sunday) … Froggy has already split from his own label Music Of Life Records over musical differences of opinion, leaving it to Simon Harris and fellow directors … Capital’s gospel jock Al Matthews, wearing his actor’s hat, is one of the main stars of ‘Aliens’! … Timex Social Club’s mention of “Tina” seems to have been edited from radio versions of ‘Rumors’ – what, too juicy? … Loose Ends’ ‘Slowdown’ in commercial form will have Nick Martinelli’s mix flipped by Dancin’ Danny D & Godwin Logie’s … Howard Hewett’s LP review mixed up the 95bpm ‘I Commit To Love’, 98bpm ‘Stay’ … Saturday (13) Eon Irving funks Covent Garden’s African Centre – and, back from a holiday visit, reports that black dancers in New York just as in London tend to find “house” tempos too fast … Gwen Guthrie is Al Jarreau’s guest on his return to Wembley Arena next Saturday (20) … Rick Davis, still funking Uxbridge Regals Fridays, souls Horton Queens Mondays, wants more gigs on 01-669 8082 … Preston’s Clouds has reopened as the totally restructured Easy Street … Radio Broadland’s soul presenter Chrissie Jackson joins Dave Brown funking Mondays at Norwich Henrys … Robert Starks is anticipating the rejuvenation of the label by starting a DJ mailing list at Avatar Communications, Unit 5, Imperial Studios, Imperial Road, London SW6 2AG … DMC Records are soon following Tina Charles with Kelly Marie, in a Les Adams re-production – can the Brotherhood Of Man be far behind? … ‘I Can Prove It’ was actually recorded a year ago, originally with lead vocals by and as a potential release for North West Ten, whose voices are still heard behind Phil Fearon … Ken Brudenell (Bracknell Oceans Fri/Sat) reminds us the original ‘I Can’t Let You Go’, even before Haywoode’s 1984 version, was by Talkback in 1982 … Jaki Graham’s media party at Groucho’s last week decamped in more private form to the newly reopened Munkberry’s, now in the same virtually unaltered site at the Swinging Sixties society haunt, Sybilla’s … Luther Vandross is unrecognisable in ads for his upcoming album, he’s got so thin! … Ian Levine has already remixed the next brand new single by Sister Sledge … Gwen Guthrie finally topped US Black 45s, Nu Shooz ‘Point Of No Return‘ Club Play, Stacey Q 12 Inch Sales in Billboard … ‘Hill Street Blues’ fans, prepare for a shock – Joe Coffey gets shot, dead … Spotlight Publications’ new specialist magazine Jocks, launched in October with a free sample copy before monthly publication begins in December, will cover the full range of disco activity with all the extra categories of charts for which there just hasn’t been room in rm – so, if you’re a DJ who, through our current neglect of wider categories of dance music, has been discouraged from sending in regular charts, now is the time for you to start submitting your floor-filler top 20s (or more if you can manage it), the aim being to compile as many different national disco charts as there are types of venue, from broad-based commercial pop, the already well covered funk and Eurobeat, through alternative, oldies, hip hop and any other nit-picking though relevant subdivisions that surface (send charts as usual to James Hamilton/Alan Jones, RM, Spotlight Publications, Greater London House, Hampstead Road, London NW1 7QZ, and please make sure to include your own address) … JACK THE HOUSE!


BEN LIEBRAND is the Dutch whizkid responsible for nearly 150 remixes, most famous here being his recent hit Tavares’ revivals, but currently he is charted as the arranger and producer of M. C. Miker ‘G’ & Deejay Sven’s ‘Holiday Rap’. Despite this, he still jocks as he has done since 1980 at Nijmegen’s The Kaiser Karl and creates regular minimixes for Radio Veronica, in Holland.


DANCIN’ DANNY D (left) and Radio London’s JEFF YOUNG are attempting to turn the next few Wednesdays into “Urban Dance” nights at Camden Town’s Dingwalls, not a venue immediately identified with hot funk, maybe. Their debut last week had Loose Ends as live guests — except, thanks to a cock-up in the sound system, they were unable to sing in truly live style to backing tracks, as they’d planned. This disappointment apart, the gig showed signs of settling into a friendly groove once teething problems are over.


HOT VINYL

CAMEO ‘Word Up!’ LP (US Atlanta Artists 830 265-1 M-1)
A particularly solid set steering clear of any threatened rock, apart maybe from the guitar solo on what is actually emerging as its killer, the jauntily looping 112bpm ‘Back And Forth’ all having floor potential though, the ‘She’s Strange’-style 95½bpm ‘She’s Mine’, mellow jogging 91/45½bpm ‘Don’t Be Lonely’, weaving 101⅔bpm ‘Fast, Fierce & Funny’, jolting 110½bpm ‘Candy’, staccato 113bpm ‘You Can Have The World’, 115¼bpm title track hit (and what a grower that turned out to be!).

PHYLLIS HYMAN ‘Living All Alone’ LP (Philadelphia International PHIL 4001)
Rushed out here, this gem of a sultry set is superb from start to finish. Not surprisingly the most sleazy floorfilling tempos are British in origin, the Junior co-penned swaying 98bpm ‘If You Want Me’ and Loose Ends-penned, Julie Roberts originated 95⅓bpm ‘Ain’t You Had Enough Love’ (produced now as then by Nick Martinelli), while her recently seven inched 118¾bpm ‘Screaming At The Moon’ is sorta ‘Thriller’-meets-Manhattan Transfer. Smoochier are the 0-63¾-0bpm title track, 40/80bpm ‘First Time Together’, 88bpm ‘Slow Dancin’’, 36½bpm ‘You Just Don’t Know’, 82 ½/83bpm ‘What You Won’t Do For Love’, tempoless ‘Old Friend’. Not to be missed!

HOWARD HEWETT ‘I’m For Real’ (Elektra EKR47T)
Finally on 12 inch, the Stanley Clarke co-prod/penned successor to their earlier ‘Heaven Sent You’ collaboration is a soul satisfying subtly swaying (0-)94⅔bpm delight with a little Wilton Felder sax to round it off (edit and rocky 127bpm ‘Eye On You’ flip).

PAUL HARDCASTLE ‘The Wizard (Part 1)’ (Chrysalis PAULX 3)
Commissioned to create the new theme for ‘Top Of The Pops’, Paul has sampled that overworked word “fresh”, a recreation of the ‘Thriller’ laughter, some bats, and one is tempted to suggest his own ‘19’ for the 0-115-0bpm beat of this typically jittering lively instrumental, flipped by a harder, fiercer, faster 125bpm Part 2 with oriental tinges, both including some special dialogue by TV’s Catweazle! White labelled now, it’s out fully on the 22nd.

MILLIE JACKSON ‘Hot! Wild! Unrestricted! Crazy Love’ (US Jive 1015-1-JD)
Likely to establish the tempestuous soulstress anew with today’s dancers, this sleazily rolling 95-0bpm lurcher (in four versions) is like a more Guthrie-styled easily syncopated SOS Band/Change – and in fact the latter’s Timmy Allen produced it.

TOURIST ‘Hooked On You’ (US Vista Sounds International VSI 1201)
Originally on Reelin’ & Rockin’ four years ago and apparently repressed on a new label specially for Britain (revealingly with the original RR matrix number), this girls-squeaked and chanted dead simple 105bpm jerkily rolling nagger (inst flip) has obviously been carefully targeted as it’s selling fast already. Another ‘(I’ll Be A) Freak For You’?

VIRGO ‘R U Hot Enough’ (US Trax Records TX114)
Marshall Jefferson in his alter ego jacks out four separate “house” instrumentals, this piano chording, bass bumbled, quite lush 119½bpm galloper proving hotter than the rattling and phasing 119¾bpm ‘Free Yourself’, usefully Farley-fied (0-)112½bpm ‘My Space’, sparse 117¾bpm ‘Under You’.

BEAU WILLIAMS ‘No More Tears’ LP (US Capitol ST-12486)
With a voice steeped in sometimes Al Green-ish classic soul nuances, this excellent set has the beefily burbling 109⅓bpm ‘All Because Of You’, romping 118¼bpm title track, recently 12-inched rousing 119¾bpm ‘Give Me Up’, wriggly 115½bpm ‘I’ll Be True’, superb smoochy 59⅓bpm ‘There’s Just Something About You’, 63⅓bpm ‘Been Too Long’, 32½-65bpm ‘Don’t Be Gone To Stay’, 0-78½bpm ‘I Found A Love’ (not the Falcons’).

TAMIKO JONES ‘I Want You’ (US Sutra SUD 051)
Getting over her Abbey habit, the sultry crooner sighs and breathes a lovely, sinuous, sensuous, burbling 101⅔bpm new treatment of the Marvin Gaye oldie (inst flip), a real groin grinder!

JAKI GRAHAM ‘Breaking Away’ LP (EMI EMC 3514)
The smoothly striding then tensely building 107bpm ‘The Love Of Your Life’ is probably the highspot of a respectable set which includes its producer Derek Bramble duetting the hesitant Jam & Lewis-ish slow 0-79bpm ‘Let’s Get Blue’ and jerkily derivative 109½bpm ‘The Closest One’, David Grant’s 104⅙bpm ‘Mated’ duet joining the 104⅙bpm ‘Set Me Free’ and (0-)107¾bpm title track hits plus the smoochy (0-)83¼bpm ‘Still In Love’, juddering 0-110¼bpm ‘Luv 2 Much’, pop disco 120¼bpm ‘Step Right Up’, ambiguously bubbling 73¼bpm ‘Love Under Moonlight’.

ERIC B. featuring RAKIM ‘Eric B. Is President’ (Cooltempo COOLX 129)
Rakim raps and Eric cuts on a well established 97bpm scratcher, another that uses the Mohawks’ ‘The Champ’ amongst its beats, coupled here only with its dub instead of also with the now almost equally popular ‘My Melody’. A pity.

GWEN GUTHRIE ‘Seventh Heaven’ (4th + B’way 12BRW 52)
Instead of reissuing the surely more logical ‘Padlock’, her old label chooses this teasingly introed lurching episodic (0-)108½bpm jitterer presumably because of its ‘Rent’-like tempo, as there’s nothin’ goin’ on in the song (although it works well at volume). The flip’s revivals are the breezy 118bpm ‘It Should Have Been You’ and jiggly 111½-0bpm ‘Getting Hot’, all three remixed by Larry Levan.

MIDNIGHT SUNRISE with Nellie ‘Mixmaster’ Rush featuring Jackie Rawe ‘On The House’ (Crossover CROSS 1, via PRT)
Although a far better Farley ‘Jackmaster’ Funk remix is due imminently of this homegrown Ian Levine pastiche of Farley’s own sound, with vocal by ex-Shakatak Jackie and Village People-like chanting by – (ouch! my lips are sealed) – here regardless are the initial 0-121½-0bpm Chicago, 0-121bpm Detroit Dub, 0-121¼-0bpm Manhattan and 120⅔bpm Nellie’s Paradise Garbage Mixes. Damon, stop kicking!

ASHFORD & SIMPSON ‘Count Your Blessings’ (Capitol 12CL422)
This spirit lifting comes-and-goes 0-54-108-53/106¼-108⅓-53⅓/106⅔-109-110½-108/54-110⅔-112bpm surger in their old Diana Ross style is a toe curler but best for radio, flipped by the Bee gees-ish snappy 106¾bpm ‘Side Effect’.

MISS THANG ‘Thunder And Lightning’ (US Tommy Boy TB 889)
Oran ‘Juice’ Jones’ brilliant ‘The Rain’ has still to do as well as it deserves here, which will hinder this (0-)110bpm answer version. Starting like the (109¼bpm) original with thunder and Smokey-ish singing, it erupts into the mighty lunged Miss’s scolding reply to the woman-baiting put-downs of Oran’s closing rap, flipped by separate longer straight vocal and rap versions. When will Shirley Brown and Barbara Mason get in on the act?

ADONIS ‘We’re Rocking Down The House’ (US Trax Records TX120).
All bounding 121½-0bpm bass, some chattering beats and a mournfully repeated title line, this cantering basic jack track is flipped by completely different 118¼bpm Down Break and 116¼bpm Instrumental treatments, best for “house” mixers.

GEORGE DUKE ‘Broken Glass’ (US Elektra 0-66837)
Zapp gives The Art Of Noise a ‘Rockit’ to make this vocodered 108⅓bpm solid funk groove full of snappily sampled inserts and edits (in four versions), also the lead track on his LP ‘George Duke’ (US Elektra 60480-1). This well varied set has the girls cooed London tempoed 109¼bpm ‘So Mean To Me’, lurching funny p’funk (0-)84½bpm ‘Stand With Your Man’ (about a girl who left Duke for Prince?), Howard Hewett-sung fast wriggly 115¾bpm ‘King For A Day’, all-star Dionne & Friends-ish 0-69⅔bpm ‘Good Friend’, speedy instrumental 115½bpm ‘I Just Want To Be In Your Life’, chugging 113½bpm ‘I Can Make It Better’, tranquil 34bpm ‘African Violet’, bashing 113½bpm ‘Island Girl’, Richie-esque pop 0-33⅓/66⅔bpm ‘The Morning, You & Love’.

  1. That Caister lineup is certainly very different – Martin Collins is the only one from the old days (and he was sort of dropped eventually).

    And considering Caister was always 99% a London and the South East affair you have Alex Lowes (from the north east) and. Chris Dinnis (from the South West) so that must have changed where the clientele came from surely. Only Graham Gold being an established London DJ.

    Like

  2. Well that Disco Aid song didn’t do very much, did it? Got to number 85 apparently.

    Considering how popular Cameo’s Candy became, it’s odd to see it just described here as “jolting”. 🙂
