Picked up a few gems from a street vendor in Williamsburg.
1. Planet Patrol – Cheap Thrills [Tommy Boy]
Electro boogie business.
2. Hot Butter – Popcorn [SR International]
German pressing of the Moog classic.
3. Mantronix – Music Madness [Sleeping Bag Records]
4. Frankie Smith – Double Dutch Bus [WMOT Records]
Classic b-boy break!
5. End of the Century – Maiden Voyage [Ranwood]
6. Orchestra Harlow – Hommy: A Latin Opera [Fania]
It is just that.
7. Maurice – This is Acid (A New Dance Craze) [Vendetta]
Classic acid house.
8. Herbie Hancock – Hidden Shadows [CBS]
The heavy funky sounds that are the basis of the Headhunters LP.
9. Midnight Star – Electricity [TSR]
From a collection of European record pool remix contest winners.
10. Ben Sidran – Now I Live (And Now My Life is Done) [Blue Thumb]
Laid-back, trippy funkiness. I didn’t think I’d enjoy this album, Puttin’ in Time on Planet Earth, as much as I do. Turns out Ben was listening to a lot of Ohio Players and wanted to get that feeling in his own recordings. Very nice indeed.
