October 11, 1986: Nocera, Sweet D, Princess, Cyndi Phillips, Oran ‘Juice’ Jones


GWEN GUTHRIE’s unidentified singing partner on ‘Save Your Love For Me‘ turns out to be Fred Owen, a friend who also appears as the “rent” payer in her video – meanwhile, a US remix of ‘Outside In The Rain’ could prove scarce here as imports apparently are banned to give ‘Close To You’ a clear field … US Cable TV’s Disney Channel on November 18 is showing an hour long ‘The Making Of Disney’s “Captain EO”‘, which in ‘Thriller’ style may possibly end up as a commercial video — though whether much of the complete 17 minute, Michael Jackson starring, George Lucas produced, Francis Ford Coppola directed $20,000.000 ‘Captain EO’ fantasy extravaganza will be included is doubtful, as the whole purpose of its making was that it should remain an exclusive attraction only to be seen by visitors at Disneyworld (Michael’s two featured songs, ‘We Are Here To Change The World’ and ‘Another Part Of Me’, seem unlikely to be on his new LP, due hopefully by Christmas) … Michael’s siblings continue to spread themselves around on different labels, Marlon Jackson signing solo to Capitol (and Cheryl Lynn would appear to be on Manhattan now) … Farley ‘Jackmaster’ Funk’s vocal remix of ‘Love Can’t Turn Around’ actually slipped out here in limited quantities a few weeks ago, so quietly that not even the lads at London knew! … Danny Poku’s 105¾bpm messy Dancing Danny D and better Hip Hop N’ Go Go remixes of Timex Social Club have finally appeared (Cooltempo COOLR 133), flipped by the Shep Pettibone and original US mixes, while similarly Nick Martinelli’s mix of Loose Ends now flips a neat Herbie Laidly-medleyed 101⅔…120½-0bpm ‘Mastermind Turntable Mix‘ of familiar Ends material (Virgin VS 884-13) … Loose Ends ‘Stay A Little While, Child‘ stiffed here but is snorting up the US Black chart, which Cameo topped (their album is now out here, Club JABH 19) although Oran ‘Juice’ Jones remained biggest seller in Billboard … US radio really seems to be waking up to the fact that lots of white people prefer listening to black “urban” stations, the hottest format now fast becoming an Urban Top 40 hybrid, while the soft soul-jazz “Quiet Storm” format continues to attract older listeners of all colours too … Brian Chin, my counterpart in Billboard, is over here for a couple of weeks to take in both this weekend’s massively sold-out Barry Island and next weekend’s Caister soul weekenders (remember to take an FM radio!) … Incredible Mr Freeze will be at Barry … Meli’sa Morgan was produced by Terry Lewis (of Jam And Lewis) some time before signing with Capitol, the record never being released – will it be now? … Radio London jazz jock Gilles Peterson has been busy again, compiling ‘Blue Bop‘ (Blue Note BNSLP 2) made up of very early Sixties’ jazz including the much sought Don Wilkerson ‘Dem Tambourines‘ … Damon de Cruz, having split from Serious Records, is now helping put Rhythm King and Flame Records product into the right shops … Baad Records actually continues independently, having left Cherry Red, now being run by ‘Evil Eddie’ Richards and Steve Rumney (on the Wicked Pulse hotline 01-701 7156), looking for “street” material to release or record — Eddie, incidentally, pioneered the technique two years ago of electronically sampling and sequencing with a computer other records’ rhythms for use in his live club mixes, but became so discouraged by lack of industry interest that he no longer bothers lugging the gear to his gigs (like Camden Palace Fri/Sat) … Arista picked up Sharon Dee Clarke, following all the radio plays by Tony Blackburn and Greg Edwards, which has made Nellie ‘Mixmaster’ Rochefort a little richer! … I just knew the Kartoon Krew’s hip hopping ‘Batman‘ theme was a hot one, and sure enough It hit John Sach’s listeners-voted Hitline on Capital Radio last week (luckily after my enthusiasm had prompted Champion to schedule it here!) … Marie Birch is extending her DJ mailing list at Sound Promotions, Suite 6, Graham Court, Eastcote Lane, Middlesex UB5 4HT … Bluebird Records last Saturday opened its new shop doors at 378 Edgware Road, with hot chicken wings and such guests as (inevitably!) Juliet Roberts, Loose Ends, Phil Fearon … Steve Walsh walks through a brick wall looking large and shouts “Listen!” in the current Streetsounds TV commercial! … Private Possession featuring Hunter Hayes’ ‘This Time‘, originally on US Mega Bolt some months back (first pressings confusingly credited Les Lee), has turned up again on US Fourth & B’way – and in fact, there currently seem to be more repressed oldies than newies on import, for some reason … Gary Hickson (Blackburn Kaleidoscope) reports a mega revival of 1982’s Spencer Jones ‘How High (Garage Mix)’ … Viktor Lazio turns out to be the name of the female singer! … Raze really has penetrated remarkably deep across the country while still only on import … Jan Allen-Willmot (Hampden Park Gullivers/Eastbourne Shimmers) reports the new lyrics currently sung at his gigs to ‘Jack Your Body’ are unprintable!… JACK THE HOUSE!


NOCERA ‘Summertime, Summertime’ (Fourth & Broadway 12BRW 54)
Late for the season even on import and now more aptly retitled ‘Indian Summertime’, surely, this Mantronik-mixed juvenile girl’s jerkily skittering wriggly 116¼bpm jolter has proved to be as nagging as originally predicted, her sometimes almost painful voice fighting through the beats (in three mixes).

SWEET D ‘Thank Ya’ (US Trax Records TX 119)
Clapping out a happy fast offbeat between bursts of simply chorded catchy melody, this jumpy little 120⅔-119¼-0bpm “house” instrumental is showing signs that it has what it takes to be one of the biggies, even if it did make its initial showing in the Eurobeat chart! The flip’s 123bpm ‘Turn It‘ usefully borrows the ‘Love Can’t Turn Around’ riff (0-122¼bpm ‘Do Do It‘, 0-57/114bpm ‘Dig I Da-Dig I Da‘ too).

PRINCESS ‘In The Heat Of A Passionate Moment’ (Supreme Records SUPET 109)
Although still quite Hi-NRG, this breezily bounding 117⅔bpm galloper has been solidified a bit for The Final Frontier Mix and totally restructured much dubbier Garage Mix alternative ‘A’ side. Catchy candyfloss.

CYNDI PHILLIPS ‘Sacrifice’ (US Atlantic 0-86770)
Creating a buzz on radio immediately it arrived two Saturdays ago, too late for many DJs to chart then, this insistently chanted lurching 105bpm nagger (dub/edit too) may not seem so instantly obvious to everyone but could end up crossing over, having elements of the Nu Shooz and even Madonna sound without detracting from its credibility.

ORAN ‘JUICE’ JONES ‘The Rain’ (Def Jam TA 7303)
Fast becoming a major US crossover smash as predicted, and deserving much more attention here (Blackburn, why are you still not playing it – it was made for you?), this thunder introed Smokey Robinson-ish haunting (0-)109¼bpm swayer ends with an abrupt and amusing extemporised sounding rap in which he tells his cheatin’ woman in no uncertain terms that it is OVER, baby, period! This is prompting several female answer versions, the latest being the similarly singing and scolding 111¾bpm LEOT LITTLEPAGE ‘The Drain‘ (US Select Records FMS 62278).

LUTHER VANDROSS ‘Give Me The Reason’ LP (US Epic FE 40415)
Slimmed down to the point of unrecognisability, apart from his almond eyes, the newly beautiful boy still sings sweet as a bird but only has two really surefire floorfillers (slowies apart) on a great listening set, the typical 102bpm ‘See Me’ and bubbly bumping 114¾bpm ‘I Really Didn’t Mean It‘. The swinging 126¾bpm ‘I Gave It Up‘ beats the 143½-0bpm ‘Stop To Love‘ and previously issued 140bpm title track at a fast tempo, while smoochers are the (0-)64¼bpm ‘So Amazing’, Dionne Warwick’s 38bpm ‘Anyone Who Had A Heart’, 33½/67bpm ‘Because It’s Really Love’, drippy Richiesque 34⅓-68⅔bpm ‘There’s Nothing Better Than Love’ (duetted with Gregory Hines). The protein diet works!

LOOSE ENDS ‘Zagora’ LP (Virgin V 2384)
Listening to this slick confection makes me wish just for once they’d wade into a song instead of sliding all around it. As well as their last two ‘A’ sides you get the Spanish-introed jaunty 0-112bpm ‘Who Are You?’, typically Nick Martinelli (he produced ’em all) 102bpm ‘Nights Of Pleasure‘, slinkily rolling 83⅓bpm ‘I Can’t Wait‘, obliquely skipping 0-117½bpm ‘Just A Minute‘, snappily loping 0-115½bpm ‘Ooh, You Make Me Feel‘, shuffling 113¾bpm ‘Let’s Get Back To Love‘, doodling 0-87½bpm ‘Be Thankful‘, supposedly “live” samba/big band medleying 0-114⅔-179½-0bpm ‘Rainbow/Take The A Train‘.

R JUSTICE ALLEN ‘Crackin’ Up’ (US Catawba MRC-0940)
Much more than the other anti-crack records so far released, this sparsely starting but then almost James Brown-ish jittery 99⅓-0bpm message rap (in four mixes) really should have street cred.

PHILIP BAILEY ‘Thank You’ (US Horizon SP-12205)
Thanking Jesus for being always by his side, this self-produced bright joyful 120bpm wriggler (in three versions, plus the pleasant 0-116¾bpm ‘All Soldiers’) is from the still Earth Wind And Fire-sounding singer’s separate gospel career, and rather good.

RJ’s LATEST ARRIVAL ‘Hold On’ LP (US Manhattan ST-53037)
Out a while and now definitely not due for UK release, this patchy set rightly continues to get attention for the soulfully hesitant lurching slow 0-76bpm ‘Past And Future’, with a great ‘phonecall outro segueing dramatically into the rolling lazy 79⅐bpm ‘Hold On’. Maybe the LP isn’t worth issue here, but I bet ‘Heaven In Your Arms’ flipped by these two would be a seller on 12 inch!

MONTY MC’s ‘Holiday Rap With A Capital C’ (Debut DEBTX 3011)
Produced by Capital Radio DJs John Sachs and Mick Brown (with help from Nigel Wright?), this 0-116¾-0bpm novelty remake features brilliantly funny impersonations of female TV characters, Maggie Thatcher and royalty, an obvious – although maybe brief lived – pop sensation.

CHUCK BROWN & THE SOUL SEARCHERS ‘Run Joe’ (US Future Records & Tapes F-0015)
Are you ready for toasting go go? Adopting a Jamaican accent with hints even of Smiley Culture’s influence, Chuck raps and chants a 0-88½-89⅓-89⅔bpm police evasion warning, although the beat remains go go – with a similarly live recorded 0-87¾-87-86½-91-91⅔bpm flip which eventually settles into a typically mellow revival of T Bone Walker’s ‘Stormy Weather’ blues classic. The downbeat tempo suggests it was a sweaty summer in Washington DC!

SCHOOLLY-D ‘Put Your Fila’s On’ (Flame Records MELT 2T, via The Cartel)
Perhaps because his hometown Philadelphia has close ties with Washington DC, this rapper enunciates in a go go style but with a DJ Code Money-scratched squiggling (0-)103bpm cymbal beat to create a distinctively different approach. Human beat box-type bass joins the disjointed 0-98⅔-0bpm ‘PSK (What Does It Mean?)’ flip’s rhythm, while also issued is the parent LP ‘Schooly-D’ (MELT LP 1) with the 98bpm ‘Free Style Cutting’, 95bpm ‘Gucci Time’, 93bpm ‘Free Style Rapping’, 96bpm ‘I Don’t Like Rock ‘N’ Roll’.

JESSE’S GANG ‘Noiz Without Words’ (US Geffen Records 0-20527)
A big departure from the expected ‘house’ sound, Jesse Saunders’s first actual US release under his new label deal is a boring disco girls-sung ponderously heavy 106-106⅓-106-0bpm judderer with stuttery sampler edits and go go-ish synth bombs (in three versions), while here instead we get from last year the already mentioned JESSE’S GANG ‘Real Love (Is It Real?)’ (Geffen Records GEF 15T), which by contrast is friskily chugging wriggly 122⅓bpm real ‘house’, eventually reaching catchy vocals, butch chants and scratching (edit flip but not the superior US dub, unnecessarily replaced by the rocky awful 0-191bpm ‘My Ride’).

‘Real Love’ co-writer Vince Lawrence is also involved in the same label deal, and created BANG ORCHESTRA ‘Sample That!’ (Geffen Records GEF 15T), which in its new House Mix is now breathy girl crooned bland, dated (0-)120¼-0bpm disco, but the flip’s totally different Clubhouse Mix adapts the previously reviewed violent original into pounding 0-117¼-0-117-0bpm Art Of Noise-goes-‘house’ excitement with smashing glass, clanging chains and various vocal effects rhythmically sampled amidst altogether punchier girls. Beware its acappella central false end.

HERCULES ‘7 Ways’ (US Dance Mania Records DM002)
Produced and co-written by Marshall Jefferson, this murkily pushing 0-120¼-0bpm ‘house’ bounder (in three mixes) gives most prominence to Hercules’s suggestively muttered details of the seven ways he’s going to make you “jack” – leaving a distinct impression that the word in this case has nothing to do with dance!

DARRYL PANDY ‘Climax’ (US Bright Star BR 0001)
Finally about on import, this Vince Lawrence-produced typically Pandy-esque 0-121½bpm episodic ‘house’ rambler (in three mixes) was until recently the third song that, mixed in with ‘Love Can’t Turn Around’ and ‘Move’, made up Darryl’s PA routine.

THE MOVEMENT ‘Movement’ (US Underworld AP 23)
Gradually unfurling (0-)117¼-0bpm ‘house’ instrumental (with what sounds like Froggy going “uh uh uh”), in three mixes, perfectly OK without tearing the roof off the sucker.

TRIBAL SON ‘Rhythmic Rituals’ (US Easy Street ESA-6600)
Showing up in ‘house’ jocks’ charts as a mixer, this contains seven simple instrumental “jack trax” without any frills, or thrills. Ignore the labels’ wildly inaccurate printed BPMs (and running order – ‘High Tech Groove (Reprise’) obviously closes side two), all three on side one are 124½bpm, and side two’s four are alternately 119bpm and 120½bpm.

One thought on “October 11, 1986: Nocera, Sweet D, Princess, Cyndi Phillips, Oran ‘Juice’ Jones”

  1. An archaeological footnote: key elements from a couple of today’s house tracks (Sweet D “Dig I Da-Dig I Da” and Hercules “7 Ways”) will eventually be reused in better known tracks by different artists (Frankie Knuckles “Your Love” and Kenny Jammin’ Jason “Can U Dance”).
