Man ParrishHip Hop, Be Bop (Don't Stop) (ext)/Heatstroke (club) ... 12-inch
Importe/12, 1982. Very Good ... $4.99
A classic electro groove – and one of the tracks that's a contender for the origin of the word "hip hop"! A very nice groove with an early Arthur Baker feel, and the kind of cut that we slept on during the 80s, but which sounds totally great today! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Naked EyesFuel For Fire (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1984. New Copy ... $9.99
Sweet electro pop from Naked Eyes – a record issued late in their early 80s run, but one that actually brings together lots of bits from earlier years! There's some alternate versions and remixes on the set – and the whole thing is actually more beat and bassline-heavy than most of their other full length sets – showing a good ability to cross over to the clubs when they want to! Titles include "What In The Name Of Love", "Eyes Of A Child", "Sacrifice", "No Flowers Please", "Answering Service", "Me I See In You", "Flying Solo", and "Flag Of Convenience". CD features 7 bonus tracks – including "Two Heads Together", "Sacrifice (Arthur Baker 12" mix)", "What In The Name Of Love (ext)", and demo versions of "Sacrifice", "Babes In Armour", and "Fuel For The Fire".

Criminal, 1987. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A late 80scomeback by Arthur Baker, not as electro or b-boy oriented as some of his other stuff, built around a sample of the Monkee's "Mary Mary". 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Test press.)

Rockers RevengeWalking On Sunshine '82 (long, short)/Rockin On Sunshine/Acapella Sunshine ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1982. Very Good ... $0.49
Not strictly hip hop, but a breakin/electro/dance classic! With that early 80's club sound and sung vocals, produced by Arthur Baker and Jellybean. The 10-minute Rockin On Sunshine mix is a mostly instrumental version, with much more spare production, where each drum/bass/snyth line is allowed to go on for a minute without all the other orchestration. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Side 1 has a mark that clicks on track one. Label has some pencil.)

TJMTJM (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Casablanca/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Around August 4, 2014
A later bit of Philly disco – recorded at Sigma Sound studios with really soaring production from Tom Moulton – and some surprising help on a number of tracks from a young Arthur Baker! The style here has that Instant Funk sort of groove – a bit more bass at the bottom than earlier Philly disco, and a real penchant for instrumental breakdowns in the Salsoul mode – stepping out nicely on a set of longer tracks that really bubble over with energy! Titles include "Put Yourself In My Place", "Small Circle Of Friends", "I Don't Need No Music", and "Am I Dreaming". This Big Break UK remastered edition has 3 bonus tracks: "Storm Warning", "Put Yourself In My Place (Single Version)" and "Am I Dreaming (Single Version)". CD

Tommy Boy, 1984. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!

New C BankOne More Shot (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Next Plateau, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early 80s electro track, from one of the architects of the sound, John Robie, who had a hand in a number of the early Afrika Bambataa singles as well Arthur Baker's breakdance classics. An uptempo track with loads of synthesizers, electronic drums, and that sort of 80s pop soul vocal that would eventually give way to the Latin freestyle sound. 12-inch, Vinyl record

New FreeezIOU/I Dub U/Acapella U ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of those b-boy cuts that straddles the line between soul and hip hop, but definitely an 80s breakin'/electro/dance classic! Anything from 1982 produced by Arthur Baker and mixed by Jellybean is bound to be dope and this one is no exception. With production and sung vocals similar to the Planet Patrol records from that time. Complete with an instrumental/dub version if you don't want the vocals. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Streetwise sleeve.)

New Loleatta HollowayCrash Goes Love (blaster mix, master mix, dub)/Sweet Thing ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1984. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Loleatta's working here with Arthur Baker – changing her style considerably to fit his slick little electro beats on the blaster and master mixes! The single also features a mellower number in her older southern style – "Sweet Thing", which is a great late night cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has some wear.)

New King CurtisArthur Murray's Music For Dancing – The Twist ... LP
RCA, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stodgy cover, but a great groover – raw instrumental dance soul from sax great King Curtis – recorded for RCA in 1961 – really great, energetic covers of big band numbers and more in a hard grooving R&B mode! Don Covay and others sing on the "Twist" tunes – "Peppermint Twist", "The Arthur Murray Twist" and a couple more – but the instrumentals are pretty incredible, too. Mickey Baker and Billy Butler are on guitar, and the whole group of musicians really cook! Other tracks include "Jersey Bounce", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Stompin' At The Savoy", "The Fly" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful original mono pressing!)

Warlock, 1990. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The A-side "It's Yours" by T-La Rock & Jazzy Jay is the classic single that was first released on Partytime and then Def Jam. The flip is the great Arthur Baker and John Robie electro remake of Manu Dibango's funky global classic! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Warlock Classics pressing.)

New Criminal Element OrchestraPut The Needle To The Record Again (needle voc, Sky King needle dub, electro beats, Sky King radio) ... 12-inch
Criminal, 1987. Used ... Out Of Stock
A late 80s Arthur Baker production, and a sort of a side bar in the cut and paste scene that was going on in and around NYC at the time. Not as essential as some other early cut'n'paste pieces, but still a nice break mix with that early Arthur Baker feel, and some nice editing courtesy Gail Sky King. 12-inch, Vinyl record
