ODDS ‘N’ BODS
NUMBER 85 was a pathetic national chart entry for Disco Aid ‘Give Give Give’, but this week should hopefully see a big improvement — it does rather undermine “the purchasing power of disco DJs”, though … London have picked up Younger Generation ‘We Rap More Mellow‘ for a remix that’ll add a much needed break … TC Curtis ‘Slave Of Love’ is now selling fast in its new go go-ish (0-) 101½bpm Go For Broke Mix (Hot Melt 14TC007) … Gwen Guthrie’s follow-up will indeed be ‘Outside In The Rain’, maybe by February! … Yasuko Agawa and other of the label’s current product should be credited to Bluebird Records alone, without 10 Records now … Eon Irving (Chelsea) points out that the rapidly UK-issued Vesta Williams ‘Vesta’ (A&M AMA 5118) LP’s standout 86½bpm song ‘You Make Me Want To (Love Again)‘ was also the standout 0-86-0bpm song ‘You Make Me Wanna Love Again‘ on the recent Con Funk Shun LP (whoops, but I found the latter album otherwise so average that I didn’t keep it!) … Gap Band have a dynamite soulfully building newie that so far has been scarce on import (check the chart in case it was about by the weekend) … London’s WBLS 88.5FM launches at the Limelight this Thursday (6) with no fewer than 10 Technics decks being scratched at once, and DJs including Tim Westwood, Jay Strongman, Derek Boland, Gaz, Jazzy B … Saturday (8) Paul Hardcastle sits in instead of Dave Gregory on Essex Radio’s soul show, and Radio Rushy Siding’s Noel St. John marries lovely Kim …Roger Tovell’s Friday 6pm Severn Sound soul show has been reduced by the 7pm arrival of Mike Allen’s syndicated hip hop hour, so now instead Roger’s including more imports and newies in the final 6-7pm part of his normal weekday drivetime slot … Mike Allen is in fact playing Kool Moe Dee ‘Go See The Doctor‘ on radio but with the dodgy bits edited in backwards! …Crossover Records are releasing Kool Moe Dee, and Calvin, while Serious Records are launching a new hip hop compilation LP series called ‘Serious Beats‘, each of the single LP sides’ four tracks also being megamixed … DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince’s ‘Girls’ follow up, ‘Just One Of Those Days‘ (US Word-Up), is a surprisingly dull disappointment … DJs are suggesting the Real Thing need a real go go remix to happen properly … Trouble Funk’s Live-In-London LP ‘Say What!’ (4th + B’way DCLP 101) is being twin-packed with their current UK 12 inch, but not Chad Jackson’s Razor Mix version – Chad, incidentally, has also done a similar Cut-Up Mix for the same label’s Run-DMC oldie ‘King Of Rock’ … Jon Davis, second-placed 1986 UK Disco Mixing champ, is rightly peeved that his `Jungle Book’ mix has been copied and claimed as his own by UK winner Chad Jackson — as Jon says, some originate and others imitate! … James (D-Train) Williams’ ‘Misunderstanding’ is the first US Columbia 12 inch I can think of that’s at 45rpm, instead of the more convenient for mixing 33⅓rpm … The Time look like reforming for a new album next year, including Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Monte Moir, Jesse Johnson, while they’re currently to be seen backing Janet Jackson’s ‘Control’ video! … Mike Shaft joins Radio Sheffield’s soulful Holcott Foster at Huddersfield’s Video-Tech on Tuesdays, when DJs Dr Jam & Ian & Manfred solidly funk Bristol’s Silks, and Gary Crowley & Vaughn ‘Mix Butcher’ Toulouse mix Fun House Samba Funk with Tom Jones, Connie Francis and Frank Sinatra at Soho’s Wag Club … Thursday evenings Dave Pinney plays our Disco chart’s hottest hits at South Ockendon’s Prince Of Wales … Adrian Dunbar (0202-296253 day/685333 night) is looking for a Bournemouth/Southampton area venue for a weekly warehouse-type gig in which to feature funk/house/rap — any offers? … Lynton Elcocks (0793-827199), funking Swindon Pasha Fridays, wants other gigs within 40 miles … Franklin Sinclair (Manchester Richfields) reports his top request two weekends ago was far and away for Oran ‘Juice’ Jones, but he couldn’t play it as strangely the CBS-distributed US smash had still not reached local disco stores … Streetwave’s DJ mailing list doesn’t seem very up to date, judging from the undelivered “gone away” record packages returned by the Post Office not to the label but to rm, thanks to the enclosed exhortations for charts to be sent to our address! … Vince Lawrence’s claim to be Virgo may not in fact be as great as Marshall Jefferson’s! … DER RUMP DUMP DUM DUM DUMP DUM…
JEFF YOUNG, snapped here enjoying a joke with Chris Hill at Barry Island, joins serious soulster Bob Jones as headlining jocks at Sudbury Gainsborough Club’s latest 2pm-2am soul alldayer this Saturday (8).
CURTIS HAIRSTON ‘Chillin’ Out’ (US Atlantic 0-86759)
Easily hottest import of the past fortnight, this Timmy Regisford remixed jauntily jiggling 98½bpm soul roller is classy and catchy with a creamy piano and sax break, the title line acknowledging today’s hip hop culture although the go go-ish beat is more in the Jocelyn Brown bag (dub/inst/edit too), a sure smash.
JAMES (D-TRAIN) WILLIAMS ‘Misunderstanding’ (US Columbia 44-05967)
Smoothly though insistently worried by D-Train’s newly personalised singer, this Francois Kevorkian/Ron St. Germain/Hubert Eaves III-remixed album smash jiggles to an almost go go-ish chunkily swinging happy 102⅚bpm beat with jazzily breaking piano and Full Force-style bounce (inst/dub flip), real good!
LOOSE ENDS ‘Nights Of Pleasure’ (Virgin VSD 919-12)
Another white-labelled twin-pack containing different mixes, all of which hopefully will be commercially available this time, unlike the ‘Slow Down’ cock-up. Nick Martinelli’s is a typically ticking clear cool 103bpm swayer, while Dancin’ Danny D’s 105½bpm Remix and Dub are more mushily shuffling, a fast wriggly 120½bpm Steve Nichol & Macca remix of ‘Let’s Rock‘ completing the pack.
TELLA & COLLINS ‘When You’re Young’ (A.1. Records A1 12 294, via PRT)
Sylvia Tella and Cargo’s Dave Collins combine for a nicely nostalgic Marvin & Tammi-style (0-)116bpm old fashioned breezy duet (instrumental flip), getting more radio than disco play so far.
CULTURAL VIBE featuring Glen (Sweety ‘G’) Toby ‘Mind Games’ (US Easy Street EZS-7527)
The ‘Ma Foom Bey’ follow-up is a less exotic Tony Humphries-mixed Chicago-influenced bounding 118½bpm New York canterer with two vocal mixes, but it’s the better beefier scatted and vibed Dub Games that’s causing most stir at “house” parties!
BUNNY SIGLER ‘(You’ve Got The) Right Stuff)’ (US Star Island SIR-00123)
A knee trembler for true soul fans, the Philadelphia veteran’s superbly sung swaying (0-)86¼bpm easy rhythmic jogger has the feel of Keni Burke’s ‘Risin’ To The Top’ (could writer M. Wells be Mary?), it and the flip’s sadly less distinguished 121¼bpm ‘Never Let Them See You Sweat‘ both being in three versions.
FREDDIE JACKSON ‘Just Like The First Time’ LP (Capitol EST 2023)
Accurately titled good mainly slow soul set, with the sinuous 89⅔bpm ‘Have You Ever Loved Somebody’, swinging 111bpm ‘Jam Tonight‘, snappy 118⅔bpm ‘I Can’t Let You Go‘, smoochy 85⅓bpm ‘I Don’t Want To Lose Your Love’, 83½bpm ‘Still Waiting’, 80bpm ‘Tasty Love’, 44/88bpm ‘Look Around’, 35⅓bpm ‘Janay’, 0-38-76-0bpm title track.
JEFF LORBER featuring Karyn White ‘Facts Of Love’ (CLUB JABX 40)
Larry Levan’s 106¾bpm Actuality Mix and Reality Dub of this surprisingly Five Star-ish tightly tripping lightweight chugger are here joined on 12 inch by the (for some, preferable) 0- 106⅔bpm LP Version, as well as the George Howard saxed 73bpm comatose ‘Sand Castles‘. Significantly the first real chart action only followed its promo mailout. Now also on import LP is his `Private Passion’ (US Warner Bros. 1-25492), the uptempo vocals prod/penned by Evan Rogers & Carl Sturken with Karyn again Five Star-ish on the 106bpm ‘True Confessions‘, Michael Jeffries slightly Lutheran on the 0-115⅚bpm title track and well soulful on the jogging 97⅔bpm ‘Keep On Lovin’ Her‘, both nicely duetting the 79¼bpm ‘Back In Love‘. Instrumental jazz-fusion however are the superior buoyantly rolling 89⅚bpm ‘Midnight Snack‘, Larry Carlton guitared mildly jaunty 103⅓bpm ‘Jamaica‘, Freddie Hubbard flugeled doodling 95⅓bpm ‘Kristen‘. A bit too bitty.
BILLY OCEAN ‘Love Really Hurts Without You’ (Supreme Records SUPET 110)
His debut 1976 hit, rather in Chairman Of The Board style, remains a pop-aimed 132¾bpm galloper in this controversial remix (dub/edit flip), which pop jocks are indeed lapping up.
AL JARREAU ‘Tell Me What I Gotta Do’ (WEA U8523T)
John Luongo-remixed gently jiggling fairly typical semi-slow 91 bpm jogger produced by Nile Rodgers, with a dub mix and the old superior ‘Roof Garden‘ as flip.
COMPANY B ‘Jam On Me’ (Bluebird BRT 27)
The girls chanted wriggly jiggly nagging latin disco jitterer would here appear to have been re-edited to become (0-)113-112⅔-0bpm, with just ‘Dub On Me’ as flip. Moronically catchy, given a chance!
RUN-DMC You Be Illin’ (Remix)’ (US Profile PRO-7119)
Almost an updated Coasters, this mellow jauntily trotting 127¼bpm catchphrase rap has a moral and honking rock ‘n’ roll sax (inst too), flipped by the LP’s fiercely human beat boxed and scratched 0-97bpm ‘Hit It Run‘.
SPOONIE GEE ‘That’s My Style’ (US Tuff City TUF 128015)
Marly Marl completely scratches and cuts up this consequently jagged 96⅓bpm rap, and two less fractured ‘I’ll Serve You Right‘ versions, creating the backing beats too for the flip’s possibly even better strong go go hip hop 98bpm ‘Take It Off‘, worth checking.
MARIO REYES ‘What Ever Turns You On’ (US D.J. International Records DJ913)
Ralphi ‘Raz’ Rosario co-prod/penned percussively leaping 121¾bpm latin “house” with Neraida Pagan’s Eartha Kitt-ish muttering vocals interrupted by amusing dialogue and sound effects, Farley ‘Jackmaster’ Funk’s no nonsense 122bpm House Mix being the most direct of its four versions.
FINGERS INC. ‘A Path’ (US D.J. International Records DJ780)
Rather strange not at first very “house” like though possibly haunting, see-sawing 121¾bpm intensifying vocal rambler eventually with some of that ‘Mysteries Of Love/Set It Off’ cymbal schlurp (inst/beats too), Chip E’s of the two vocal mixes chugging with most immediacy.
BILLY GRIFFIN ‘Believe It Or Not’ (Atlantic A9374T)
Pulsing sinuous slow though ambiguous 60⅔/121⅓bpm sweet mellow soul swayer (inst/edit too), plus here the brassily wriggling 105bpm ‘E.S.P.‘, both very pleasant.
CLUB NOUVEAU ‘Jealousy’ (Warner Bros W8551T)
Very similar answer version to ‘Rumors’ by its actual producer Jay King and his own new group, with a bassier (0-)110bpm arrangement (inst too) and longer “vicious vocal” 110⅓bpm ‘Malicious Jealousy‘ flip.
MONDO KANE featuring Dee Lewis & Coral Gordon ‘An Everlasting Love In An Ever-Changing World (The Doop De Do Song) (A Foggy Day In London Town Mix)’ (Lisson Records DOLEQ 6, via PRT)
Blandly cooed friskily leaping 104bpm samba prod/penned by Stock/Aitken/Waterman and originally intended for release as a segued medley with ‘New York Afternoon’ had Georgie Fame not then added his vocal to that. Pretty if limp (inst/edit too), it should of course now fit with Fame’s ‘Samba’!
MILLIE JACKSON ‘An Imitation Of Love’ LP (Jive HIP 43)
Slick saleable set with nothing really to rival the 95bpm ‘Hot! Wild! Unrestricted! Crazy Love‘ on the floor, but for listeners there’s Prince’s 0-106⅔bpm ‘Wanna Be Your Lover’, the sleazy 86bpm ‘It’s A Thang‘, het-up (0-)74bpm ‘I Need To Be By Myself‘, tender 0-77/38½-0bpm ‘I Fell In Love’, burbling 111⅔bpm ‘Mind Over Matter’, swaying 81¼bpm ‘Love Is A Dangerous Game’, smoochy 36/78bpm title track.
RAPPERS’ CONVENTION ‘The Wiggle’ (US EMI America V-19219)
Randy Muller’s rapping proteges debut with a starkly starting Run-DMC-ish but then quite jauntily driving hard 91⅔-0bpm jiggler prodded by bubbly bass and “wiggly” vocal effects (in five mixes). In true dance craze style, the lyrics tell you how to do the new def step!
GO GO LORENZO and the DAVIS/PINCKNEY PROJECT ‘Say “No” To Drugs’ (US Studio Records STU-1111)
Even more orchestrated though far less striking than ‘You Can Dance (If You Want To)’, this 97bpm go go message song (edit/sparser inst too) will however be rare while it’s banned on import to give their established hit a chance here.
R. JUSTICE ALLEN ‘Crackin’ Up’ (Lisson Records DOLEQ 5, via PRT)
Now rapidly becoming just one of many anti-crack messages, this sparsely starting then almost James Brown-ish jittery 99⅔-0bpm rap funker (in four mixes) should still have street cred.
SPENDER JONES ‘Miss Friday’ (Rise Records RISE T3, via Pinnacle)
Competent though hardly very inspired Michael Jackson style 111⅔bpm jiggly thudder (inst flip).
SHA RENE ‘I’m Good For You’ (US Black Wall BW01)
Sharon Rene Summers’ self-prod/penned 113½bpm wriggly swayer is soulfully enunciated to a pleasant backing including subdued jazzy guitar picking, with two dubbier Dance Versions as flip, but doesn’t really stick in the mind.
KLARK KENT, ELLIOTTE NESS & THE WORD PROCESSOR ‘Gettin’ Busy’ (US New Image NIR 3333)
Deftly scratched and densely rapped 0-99⅓bpm Full Force/UTFO-style go go hip hop making all the right moves without maybe being innovatory enough, with a quite amusingly chatting 86⅔bpm ‘Girl On The Corner‘ flip.
