ODDS ‘N’ BODS
BRUCE FORSYTH was the most famous person spotted at Wembley digging Al Jarreau, whose musical director on keyboards was Neil Larsen: it wasn’t as exciting a show as two years ago (when of course, it was being videoed and recorded) … George Benson’s follow-up is ‘Shiver‘, so reason has prevailed … Omni Records have signed Rose Royce, produced by Nick Martinelli and Arthur Baker for their initial LP … Music Of Life are now reissuing Sylvia Striplin ‘Give Me Your Love‘, and have drastically remixed LaToya Jackson for commercial release … Was (Not Was) ‘Robot Girl’ is already about as a remix, the more basically percussive 111⅔-0bpm Paris Mix flipped by the violent 0-111⅓bpm East Grinstead mix cutting in “gimme a beat” … Ronnie Laws and Stanley Clarke have classy import albums mainly for home listening, likely “sleepers”, and George Duke’s is now out here (Elektra 960 480-1) … Bluebird Records this week have a big record sale prior to moving their Paddington Green shop around the corner into much larger Edgware Road premises — will they include a hairdressing salon there? … Ian Levine has now produced Darryl Pandy in a duet with Hazell Dean on the old Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell ‘Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing’ (the song is Coca Cola’s current US Jingle), at around 116bpm for EMI … Sylvester – the Darryl Pandy of the Seventies? – has signed to Warner Bros and evidently will be in funkier style than before … CBS snapped up Ricky Dillard ‘You Can’t Hide‘ produced by Chicago Warehouse mainman DJ Frankie Knuckles … Sunday (5) Essex Radio soul presenters Tony Monson and Disco John Leech cruise the Thames from Bermondsey’s Cherry Garden Pier aboard the good ship Mayflower Garden between 2-6pm, advance booking being advisable on 01-599 1471 … Danny Smith and guest DJs soul Great Yarmouth’s Scruples (ex-Aquarius) on Fridays 3 and 24 … Lynton Elcocks funks Pashas Thur/Fri, saying it’s open later than any other club around Swindon … Pete Haigh now souls Sundays at Blackpool’s Lips … Peter C. Helyer’s funk nights are Thurs at Bristol Studio and Mon at Newport (Gwent) Rockerfellas, which he pops Wed/Fri/Sat too … London’s KISS-fm airplay is forcing the reissue of Bunny Wailer’s ‘Back To School‘ from 1982 … Chris Nat (“Luge & Legal”) has temporarily left Radio TKO … Hereward Radio’s Thurs/Sat soul presenter Steve Allen, also hosting upfront Sunday evenings at Peterborough’s Manhattan Bar, confirms that Gil Silverbird’s title was originally printed, pre-Meli’sa Morgan. as ‘Fool’s Paradise’ … SEDA members meet this Sunday (5) in Wrotham’s Royal Oak at 7.30pm … DJ Pinney (South Ockendon) says that ‘Le Freak’ isn’t requested anything like as much as Chic’s ‘Good Times’ – which never was 12 inched here at the right tempo, being speeded up for the UK, so a reissue could even now be really useful … Kevin Kane (Exmouth Samanthas) reckons the way things are going ‘The March Of The Mods’ must be next for reissue! … JOCKS, if it’s to run the much requested charts like Alternative and Hip Hop, can’t do so unless we get enough returns from the relevant DJs, so send ’em in pronto … JACK THE HOUSE!
JAY STRONGMAN (above), renowned warehouse DJ and occasional rm contributor, is running Mute Records’ new “collectable funk” label subsidiary Flame Records, a replacement for the short lived Baad logo. The debut release from Memphis is the enthusiastic-sounding ROBERT & TOM SANDERS ‘Doing Bad’ (Flame Records MELT 1T), a squidgily chugging 117bpm funk rap flipped by the slightly go go-ish 114¼bpm ‘Jamming In The Big “M” Town’, both with more atmosphere than they’d have had if recorded in New York, although stylistically up to the minute.
GWEN GUTHRIE ‘(They Long To Be) Close To You’ (Boiling Point POSPX 822)
Selling in upfront shops already, although not strictly out until next week, Larry Levan’s tougher 96⅔bpm remix of Bacharach & David’s all-time classic Carpenters song now kicks straight in with the mellow beat, and is obviously a crossover smash. Her ‘Good To Go Lover’ LP (Boiling Point POLD 5201) provides the slow 53-0bpm ‘You Touched My Life‘, joined as flip by the bonus of a previously unheard lovely sultry 96⅔/48⅓bpm ‘Save Your Love For Me‘ duet with an uncredited classily soulful chap. Who he?
ONE WAY ‘Don’t Think About It’ (US MCA Records MCA-23659)
Produced by Eumir Deodato in Jam & Lewis style, this coolly tapping 104⅙bpm swayer becomes totally mesmerising as soulful vocals weave through the tension building repetitive simple rhythm, creating hidden depths the longer you let it wash over you (on five versions).
WALLY JUMP JUNIOR & THE CRIMINAL ELEMENT ‘Ain’t Gonna Pay One Red Cent’ (US Criminal Records CRIM 00004)
Rapidly eclipsing their Dhar Braxton answer version, this, as previously warned, is the Arthur Baker-produced answer to ‘Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ On But The Rent’! Craftily changing the words, the 110⅓-110⅕-110-109⅘-110-109⅔-109⅘bpm vocal stays close to Gwen Guthrie’s arrangement weaving in some ‘Dr Beat’ and ‘White Lines’, but it’s the scratching (0-)109⅔-0bpm Rap Version which complains most bitterly (inst/dub/edit too). The men bite back!
J.M. SILK ‘I Can’t Turn Around’ (US RCA Victor 5702-1-RD)
Moving to a major label, Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley & Keith Nunnally now correctly credit Isaac Hayes as its composer while they delve back to the original inspiration for ‘Love Can’t Turn Around’, keeping closely to Farley ‘Jackmaster’ Funk & Jesse Saunders’ rhythm arrangement for their vocally less incisive though typically “house” 125¾bpm treatment (in four mixes). Obviously of interest to DJs, it’s just a little bit late for the general market here!
Q-PID FEATURING NIKKI Q ‘My Latin Lover’ (Rhythm King LEFT 1T, via Mute)
An enduring “sleeper” some months back on import, this squeakily nagged electro-disco jitterer has been refreshed for belated UK release by Evil Eddie & Stun’s new more spacious 115⅔bpm Warehouse Mix, flipped though by three original 114⅔bpm Bruce Forest mixes. A likely hit.
JAMES (D-TRAIN) WILLIAMS ‘Miracles Of The Heart’ LP (US Columbia BFC 40465)
Much better than the included 117⅔bpm ‘You Are Everything‘ single, the album’s hits are the great almost go go hip hop-style funkily skipping 101bpm ‘Misunderstanding’, Jam & Lewis-ish lovely 90bpm ‘Oh How I Love You (Girl)‘, chunky 108½bpm ‘Stand Up And Fight‘, while quite respectable are the lurching 0-100⅚bpm ‘Let Me Love You‘, chugging 0-113⅘bpm ‘I Got Your Number‘, smoochy 66/33bpm ‘Ice Melts Into Rain’ and slow 69bpm ‘Miracle Of The Heart’. The set’s already due here (CBS 450066 1).
BILLY TAYLOR ‘I Wish I Knew’ (Capitol CL 369)
The original theme music to Barry Norman’s ‘Film ‘86’ apparently dates from 1964, before Ramsey Lewis’s similar style became famous, this (0-)114¼-118½-120-124-123-121-0bpm piano swinger (only on seven inch) sounding now very usefully like another ‘Wade In The Water’.
IVAN LEAPARR ‘My Love Just Take Your Time’ (US Panic Records PANIC 003)
New York answers Chicago with some “house” of its own, the usual ingredients including a wild eccentric vocal being freshly tossed to a 0-120¾bpm ‘Set It Off’ cymbal beat with exciting results (percussive Club Mix flip).
THE REAL THING ‘Straight To The Heart’ (Jive JIVE T 129)
The Liverpool lads’ brand new label debut adopts the jittery 99⅔bpm go go hip hop beat to a chorally splurging song that, in their old style, isn’t hip hop at all but benefits from the resulting bouncy zest (inst/dub flip).
LENNY WILLIAMS ‘Ten Ways Of Loving You’ (Malaco Dance MALD 122)
Out here as a welcome 12 inch, the lightly soaring ‘Shoo Doo Fu Fu Ooh!’ soulster’s pleasantly dated Detroit Spinners-ish 112¼bpm fluid chugger isn’t actually any longer, just slightly faster than the US seven inch.
JEFF LORBER featuring Karyn White ‘Facts Of Love’ (US Warner Bros 0-20545)
Remixed by Larry Levan, this tightly tripping little 106¾bpm bolter sounds surprisingly like Five Star or the Cool Notes singing over ‘Chief Inspector’ or ‘Twilight’ (dub, and jazzily saxed doodling 73bpm ‘Sand Castles’ flip).
SINITTA ‘Feels Like The First Time’ (Fanfare 12FAN 8)
Les Adams remixed (or should that be megamixed, considering his crafty quotes from familiar riffs?), this jiggly 116½bpm chugger (dub flip) is still fairly simple but a lot less crass than ‘So Macho’ – which may or may not be a help, as since when did dance floor credibility make monster pop hits?
THE MOVE ‘Greedy Girls’ (US Sunnyview SUN 442)
To a jaunty scratching smooth 96⅓bpm ‘Just Buggin’’ beat, the poppin’ MCs rap amusingly and truthfully about the Gwen Guthrie attitude to pay for play, with avaricious females and chipmunk voices adding to the fun (in three mixes), all rather sneaky.
LADY PEACHENA ‘Save Me’ (US Cotillion 0-96801)
Self-prod/penned by the (new?) gritty soulstress, this girls-supported 110⅓-109½-111-111¼-112bpm shuffling chugger sounds like Jocelyn Brown wailing to ‘Twilight’ with added piano and a more rolling momentum (dub/acappella flip). Worth investigation?
ATLANTIC STARR ‘Armed And Dangerous’ (US Manhattan V-56029)
Produced and co-written by Earth Wind & Fire’s Maurice White but remixed by Arthur Baker with a ‘Rent’-tempoed new intro (not on the actually tighter seven inch, which has been about a while), this jerky 111bpm judderer is brightly zestful in dated Emotions style except its rhythm may be too jaggedly abrupt for comfort (dub/edit flip).
BILLY GRIFFIN ‘Believe It Or Not’ (US Atantic 0-86786)
Pulsing at a basically slow lush 60½bpm but with an ambiguous 121bpm double tempo which keeps threatening to take over, this obviously tense yet mellow sinuous sweet swayer is prettily souled in almost Sam Cooke style (inst/edit flip).
AL JARREAU ‘L Is For Lover’ LP (WEA 253 080-1)
A huge improvement over his last studio album for home listening, the mellow set’s biggest dancers are the lightly jogging typical 99bpm ‘Pleasure’ and 90bpm ‘Tell Me What I Gotta Do‘.
JAMIE TALBOT ‘Mornin’ (Move MS17, via Charly)
A bit fast but really nice, this young British alto saxist’s 125bpm instrumental reading of AI Jarreau’s classic races fluidly along for jazz dancers, with a Claire Hamill crooned ‘In Your Daydreams‘ 137¼bpm cool samba flip.
YOUNG & CO ‘Such A Feeling’ (US Atlantic 0-86781)
Remixed by Timmy Regisford, Larry Patterson & Boyd Jarvis, the gospel-ish bounder originally out on The Sound Of London now wriggles in a more “house” derived 0-119¼bpm style, with its previously noted strong bass line emphasised for the flip’s ‘Such A “Baseline” Feeling’, and dub.
TROUBLE FUNK ‘Still Smokin’ (Hug A But)’ (4th + B’way/TTED 12 GOGO 5)
Fairly routine, even tedious, old 107bpm go go chant out here now that the ‘Good To Go’ movie is finally due to open (dub flip and London-recorded “live” ‘It’s In The Mix (Don’t Touch That Stereo)‘).
ARTHUR RUSSELL ‘Let’s Go Swimming’ (US Logarhythm LR-1002-1)
Having had trouble finding this extremely eccentric rhythmically busy frantic skitterer on import after reading about it, I’m fed up to see it’s already due out here (Rough Trade RTT 184) – especially as, like his earlier Dinosaur L underground classic, it really will need time to mature and become as widely accepted as it deserves. Right now it’ll be classed as “house”, although it’s far deeper, in (0-)125½-125¾bpm Gulf Stream Dub, 125¼-125bpm Puppy Surf Dub and – most accessible of all –Walter Gibbons-mixed sparse rattling and bubbling 125-125¼bpm Coastal Dub versions.
THE KARTOON KREW ‘Batman’ (US Profile PRO-7113)
Including dialogue and effects which sound like the old TV series’ soundtrack, this slowed down deliberately jolting 99⅔bpm hip hop treatment of Neal Hefti’s classic theme cuts across strongly on radio but strangely seems not to be selling (dub flip). Good fun, regardless.
FAZE ONE ‘Layin’ Down A Beat’ (Streetwave UKHAN 1)
Remnants of Touchdown gone hip hop, Morgan Khan’s new black hopes are these London rappers who ape New York stars like Run-DMC for the 95⅔-0bpm A-side but are more London accented on the interesting episodic 110½-0bpm ‘Stronger Than Strong‘ flip, both in two versions, the uncensored ones being childishly foul-mouthed.
STACY LATTISAW ‘Nail It To The Wall’ (US Motown 4563MG)
Stacy gets whitened up to meet the current Teena Marie market on this Jellybean-produced 0-120bpm bounding smacker (inst/edit flip), due here next week (Motown ZT40886).
REBBIE JACKSON ‘Reaction’ (CBS TA 7323)
Big sister sounds like one of the family on a Prince-tempoed breezy (0-)123½-0bpm burbler (in three mixes).
ULTRA MAGNETIC MC’S ‘Ego Tripping’ (US Next Plateau NP40051)
Scratch-introed rambling 94⅓bpm rap, with a more interesting cut ’em up stark 103bpm ‘Funky Potion/Funky Extension’ flip.
GENERAL KANE ‘Crack Killed Applelack’ (US Gordy 4568GG)
The life and drugs-caused death of a young American documented on narrative rap style, not another ‘The Message’ as its jerking 113⅔bpm beat is much less danceable (in three mixes).
