November 15, 1986: Duke Bootee, George Benson, Beastie Boys, Donna Allen, One Way

ODDS ‘N’ BODS

JEFF YOUNG’s essential Saturday lunchtime Radio London soul show ludicrously is being moved from November 29 to eight o’clock in the morning, ending at 10am, the thinking being that as it’s such an audience builder maybe it’ll get people switching to the station earlier in the day – the trouble is, its audience must mainly be made up of clubgoers, and for them its original 11.30am start was nicely timed to be their breakfast show! … Streetwave snapped up Fission for rush release in a remix using even more Glenn Miller (although remakes to get around legal problems), thus turning the original rare pressing into an instant collectors’ item … Mantronix’s new LP is evidently going to feature Glenn Miller-type swing tunes too … CBS finally saw sense, and now Oran ‘Juice’ Jones’s seven inch does indeed end with the rap that’s made it a US smash … Mel & Kim have yet another crucially timed remix, harder than scratching, this one called logically enough the Freehold Mix (Supreme SUPETZ 107), 119bpm off acetate – what next, the Planning Permission Mix? … Swing Out Sister’s 112¾bpm remix belies its subtitle A New Rockin’ Version by being actually much funkier right from the start, with an instrumental Horny Version flip, definitely the one to use now (Mercury SWING 2212) … Real Thing unknowingly pre-empted last week’s comment from DJs that a go go remix would help, with their Club Mix which strips back the vocal to expose more instrumental rhythm thus almost fitting the bill … Curtis Hairston ‘Chillin’ Out‘ is being rushed out here on Atlantic hopefully by next week … Jive appear to have the singles rights to Kool Moe Dee ‘Go See The Doctor‘, which in the current venereal climate might even be worth official support as the ideal way to get the condom message over to street kids! … Run-DMC are contributing raps to the next albums by both Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, the latter’s track being anti-crack (Jacko’s US release date of November 26 looks a bit ambitious, informed sources suggesting his LP will be too late for Christmas now) … London’s “warehouse” station WBLS 88.55FM was launched at the Limelight with, in the event, only six Technics decks and those only used normally in pairs, the event (later revealed to have been planned that way by Derek Boland) being probably the most “New York”-like in atmosphere ever in a London club, with no chat, no house, and lots of darkly dressed serious young men upstairs, the real socialising going on downstairs, all in all a good night … Gordon McLeod reports live from London every week to his mother Candy Devine’s Friday 9-11pm soul show on Belfast’s Downtown Radio … New York’s WNBC “flying eye” traffic reporter Jane Dornacker was killed when the helicopter she was actually broadcasting from crashed into the Hudson River … Melba Moore & Freddie Jackson ‘A Little Bit More‘ topped the US Black 45s in Billboard … Luther Vandross’s US newie is the fast rocky 143½bpm ‘Stop To Love‘ – oh dear, I hope we don’t have to follow suit here … Ben Findon’s “1986 Dance Mix” of ‘Love Really Hurts Without You’ is a total remake, containing not one note of the original 1976 hit version, even Billy Ocean’s vocal being from out-takes never previously used, as the original now belongs to CBS — I said it was controversial! … Ben Liebrand is following his hit Tavares revival with a remix of Hot Chocolate ‘You Sexy Thing’ — yawn! … The Time have not only reformed for A&M, but also Herb Alpert has cut five tracks with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis for his own new album, while the Brothers Johnson are back together again and back on the label … Thursday (13) Archie Bell & The Drells start their first UK tour for 10 years at Basildon Festival Hall … Bobby Womack joins Patti LaBelle on Saturday (15) at Hammersmith Odeon, but not the following night … Monday (17) Tim Westwood and Lyndon T start hip hopping Hammersmith Town Hall, for free on the local rates for the first two weeks … Thursday (20) Nigel Porter spins Sixties soul and R&B, at Exeter Boxes … Shake & Fingerpop scorch Soho’s Wag Wednesdays … Phil Simmons rocks the house on Fridays at Richmond-upon-Thames’ reopened Park Avenue … Streetwave’s disco plugger Andros, embarrassed by his mailing list being so out of date, wants DJs to help him update it on 01-997 9989 (instant meltdown at Ealing telephone exchange!) … Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley ‘Jack Your Body’ and the old First Choice ‘Let No Man Put Asunder‘ share the same bass line, making a terrific mix, tips Pete Tong … DER RUMP DUMP DUM DUM DUMP DUM…


MIKE SEFTON, in a surprise move, joins the current spate of record company musical chairs and leaves Phonogram (where he’s long been their popular disco plugger) of the end of this month to head black A&R at A&M. This is a wrench, as he’d been looking forward to taking new US Phonagram signing CINDY VALENTINE (left) on a three week PA tour of Aberdeen!



HOT VINYL

DUKE BOOTEE ‘Broadway’ (HardBack BOSS 2, via Streetwave)
The main man on ‘The Message’ now adapts Dyke & The Blazers’ 1967 classic ‘Funky Broadway’ into a similarly bleak, stark jolting 91⅔bpm go go hip hop rap ‘n’ scratch (inst/edit flip); extremely powerful if depressing.

GEORGE BENSON ‘Shiver’ (Warner Bros W8523TF)
Mellowed out and more hesitantly started, David Todd and Nick Martinelli’s 105bpm extended remix of his outstanding vintage-styled wriggly swaying backbeat jazz-funk jogger is flipped by a useful (unbilled) instrumental dub and the gentle 103/51½bpm ‘Love Is Here Tonight’, and for a “special limited edition” it’s twin-packed with older jerky 0-110¼bpm Jellybean remix of ‘20/20’ (seguing into its dub) and the craftily ‘Shiver’-compatible 105-104bpm ‘Love Will Come Again’. Good value, huh?

BEASTIE BOYS ‘It’s The New Style’ (Def Jam 650169 6)
Although somewhat overtaken by the even fresher Original Concept, this angrily Run-DMC-ish 0-98⅔-0-77bpm rap is exciting floors with its slower “whoa-oh” chant-along rabble rousing last part (dub too), flipped by two treatments of the speaker-blowing very strange backwards-run 46/92bpm ‘Paul Revere’. However, even hotter now is their LP ‘Licensed To Ill’ (US Def Jam BFC 40238), for full review next week but packed with exciting white boys’ rap and Led Zeppelin riffs, the most widely acclaimed standout, though, being their brilliant 0-96⅔bpm revival of War’s ‘Low Rider’, here called ‘Slow Ride’. Check it!

DONNA ALLEN ‘Serious’ (US 21 Records 0-96794).
Hitting a clearly driving slightly dated 110⅓bpm groove, this interestingly arranged expressive singer is like a hipper, more soulful Madonna in a way, with (edit too) a similar if busier 116⅔bpm ‘Bad Love’ flip. Could be a biggie.

ONE WAY ‘IX’ LP (US MCA Records MCA-5823)
Quite a strong Deodato-produced set, sparked by the great sassily strutting 112⅓bpm ‘You Better Quit’, chunkily “Mr Grooving” P’funky 110⅓bpm ‘Set It Out’, and smoochily swaying 75¼bpm ‘Oh Girl’, plus the jiggly 116bpm ‘I Can’t Help Myself’ (both are new songs), taut (0-)120¼bpm ‘Stole My Heart’, tenderly slushy 0-31¾/63½bpm ‘Starry Eyes;, whipping 128¼bpm ‘Whammy’, Isleys-ish flying 137½bpm ‘Who Does She Think She Is’, and their current 104⅙bpm ‘Don’t Think About It’ hit.

THE GAP BAND ‘Big Fun’ (US Total Experience 2701-1-TD)
Evidently nice out of Chakachas’ ‘Jungle Fever’, this rather Stevie Wonderish and (to my mind) wonderful burbling rambling builder finds the guys using real percussion to tap out the gradually unfurling beat at 110⅔(intro)-112¾-112-113⅔-114½-114(chorus break)-112½-114¼bpm. That’s the main Mega Mix; forgive me if I don’t do the other three!

RAZE ‘Let The Music Move U’ (US Grove St. GR-007)
Vaughan Mason jacks the groove again with this time a proper 119½bpm “house” song sung by Wanda Sykes – which is already out here at 118¾bpm on the ‘Ultimate Trax’ LP (Champion CHAMP 103) credited to WANDA OF RAZE – while on import 12 inch there are three more tracks, the ‘Jack Your Body’-like 119¾bpm ‘Get Down’, subdued Wanda sung/rock-guitared 110¾bpm ‘What’cha Gonna Do With Me’ and hi-NRG 128⅔bpm ‘Control Me’. Also on that ‘Ultimate Trax’ compilation from this same New Jersey label is the huskily soulful derivative gentle 109⅔bpm DARRYL PATTERSON ‘Heartbreaker’, its only other previously unissued track (the old KINKINA ‘Jungle Fever’ is 99⅔bpm).

POINTER SISTERS ‘Goldmine (Remix)’ (RCA PT 49788)
The closest they’ve been back to ‘Automatic’, this sassy though solid 108bpm chugger should regain their soul credibility while packing enough pop punch, quite a sneaky grower (dub, and hi-NRG 124⅔bpm ‘Sexual Power’ flip).

CURTIS HAIRSTON ‘Curtis Hairston’ LP (US Atlantic 81693-1)
Sporting the meanest sideburns ever seen, Curtis sounds soulful and is selling fast but there’s nothing else as striking as ‘Chillin’ Out’. Full review next week, BPMs in the Disco chart now.

HEAVY TRAFFIC STARRING “V” ‘Heavy Traffic starring “V”’ LP (US Atlantic 81682-1)
Chunky female funk produced by Brian (Holland-Dozier) Holland, fully reviewed next week, the solidly lurching 110bpm ‘Jealousy’ also being on 12 inch but minus its here obviously included seven inch flip which Tony Blackburn’s plugging, the very soulful gently rolling 0-98⅔bpm ‘Coming Down With Love’. Overall the album’s your best buy.

ISAAC HAYES ‘Ike’s Rap/Hey Girl’ (CBS 650236 6)
In his classic vintage romantic style, this talk started 65⅓bpm smoocher actually carries a subtle anti-crack message, while his surprisingly strong LP ‘U-Turn’ (US Columbia FC 40416) has other typical smoochers (reviewed last week), although of immediate interest are the Surface-prod/penned soulfully smooth 121bpm ‘Flash Backs’ and especially the virtually “house”-styled (0-)123¾bpm ‘If You Want My Lovin’, Do Me Right’, which surely stops Farley ‘Jackmaster’ Funk from taking that one any further!

COURTNEY PINE ‘Children Of The Ghetto’ (Island 12IS 301)
I hadn’t considered the over hyped flavour of the month jazz saxist to be particularly danceable, but DJs are charting his fluidly weaving delicate 0-72/36-0bpm treatment of the Real Thing song, classily emoted in soaring Minnie Riperton-ish style by sometimes Supremes member Susaye Greene, and it is a sinuous subtle smoocher.

SHINEHEAD ‘Who The Cap Fit’ (Virgin VS 917-12)
Already fashionable and technically much better than ‘Back To School’, say, this hypnotic 88⅓bpm reggae rap has a compelling rhythm tonally similar to someone blowing across a bottletop, with as flip his old Jackson/Junior-reggaefying 83bpm ‘Billie Jean/Mama Used To Say’ medley.

YARBROUGH & PEOPLES ‘Don’t Stop The Feeling’ (US Total Experience 2702-1-TD)
‘Don’t Stop The Music’, ‘Don’t Stop The Feeling’ – yeah, basically it’s the same again six years apart and with studio technology making this 0-100bpm sleazily rolling builder sound crisper (in four mixes). You liked it then, you liked the others in between, you’ll like it again!

FIVE STAR ‘If I Say Yes’ (Tent PT 40982)
Speedily wriggling and tinkling Jackson 5-ish 120bpm galloper, flipped by M&M’s much harder 106⅓bpm US remix of ‘Can’t Wait Another Minute’, and – this release’s traditional instrumental – the moodily juddering 105⅓bpm ‘Let Me Down Easy’.

KOOL & THE GANG ‘Victory’ (Club JABX 44)
Now it’s out here, this bounding 122⅔bpm polished pounder will indeed be a pop hit, just as soulful as Madonna.

One thought on “November 15, 1986: Duke Bootee, George Benson, Beastie Boys, Donna Allen, One Way”

  1. And so finally, many months after “Jack Your Body” first appeared on import, Pete Tong finally makes the connection with “Let No Man Put Asunder”.

    Wanda of Raze “Let The Music Move U” was a massive track for Graeme Park at The Garage in Nottingham, which hung around well into 1987; for us, it was one of the defining tunes of that period.
