Man ParrishHip Hop, Be Bop (Don't Stop) (5:36, 4:00, part 2) ... 12-inch
Importe/12, 1982. Very Good ... $14.99
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! 3 different edits. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In an Importe sleeve with marker. Label has some pen.)

MC Connection/C BankBurnin' For Another Shot/One More Shot (inst) ... 12-inch
Next Plateau, 1983. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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 nice synthesizers and electronic drums. 12-inch, Vinyl record

New OrderConfusion (voc, confused beats, inst, rough mix) ... 12-inch
Factory (UK), Early 80s. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $8.99
A breakin' classic – and the record that almost got Arthur Baker into a lot of trouble! The track's presented here in the original pic sleeve version – very abstract cover art and label notes, almost obscuring Baker's original relation to the tune – quite possibly why he felt free to issue his own US version of the track! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Later UK pressing in an un-embossed sleeve.)

Diana RossSwept Away ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1984. Used ... $9.99
A surprising hit for Diana Ross – a record that really helped the singer shine brightly in the 80s, but with a vibe that's quite different than her years at Motown! The album's got plenty of star power on board – production work from Arthur Baker, Richard Perry, Daryl Hall, Lionel Richie, and Bernard Edwards – and a musical lineup that features half those artistes, plus work from Jeff Beck, Nile Rodgers, and the Brecker Brothers too! Diana's vocals aren't as over the top as during the disco years – and find a nice place to percolate within the warmer 80s grooves – mostly rhythms that have a nice sort of crossover potential, but not in a way that's as clunky or commercial as some of her contemporaries. Titles include "Missing You", "It's Your Move", "Swept Away", "Telephone", "All Of You", "Touch By Touch", "Nobody Makes Me Crazy", and "Rescue Me". CD

✨✧ Loleatta HollowayCrash Goes Love (blaster mix, master mix, dub)/Sweet Thing ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1984. Used ... 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
(White label promo.)
