✨✧ New EditionCandy Girl ... LP
Streetwise, 1983. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A poppy record, but a great one too – and a surprisingly enduring pleasure from the Streetwise scene of the 80s! This is the album that started it all – the wave of younger groups that would come into play in 80s soul strongly by the latter half of the decade – New Edition with its now-classic lineup that includes a young Ralph Tresvant, Bobby Brown, and the Bell, Biv, Devoe trio! The album's really the brainchild of producer Maurice Starr, who's also working here with a fair bit of help from Michael Jonzun and a bit of guidance from Arthur Baker – all of whom serve up tunes that are sweet and catchy, and which are almost an 80s update of the sound of the Jackson 5 or Five Stairsteps from a decade before – given a hipper, more streetsoul undercurrent. Titles include "She Gives Me A Bang", "Pass The Beat", "Ooh Baby", "Popcorn Love", "Candy Girl", "Should Never Have Told Me", and "Gimme Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing in an alternate cover, including the poster.)

Rockers RevengeWalking On Sunshine '82 (long, short)/Rockin On Sunshine/Acapella Sunshine ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1982. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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
(In a Streetwise sleeve.)

✨✧ C BankOne More Shot/One More Time ... 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
(Canadian promo pressing. Label has some marker.)

✨✧ King CurtisMusic For Dancing – The Twist ... CD
RCA/Shout (UK), 1961. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 musicans really cook! Other tracks include "Jersey Bounce", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Stompin' At The Savoy", "The Fly" and more. CD

✨✧ Man ParrishBoogie Down (Bronx, dub) ... 12-inch
Sugarscoop, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Original pressing of "Boogie Down Bronx", one of the first hip hop tracks about The Bronx, and the early electro classic that Newcleus copied the bassline, drums and vocoder sound from on "Jam On It". The production almost sounds as if this could be a mid 80s Arthur Baker cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ New EditionCandy Girl (voc, sing a long) ... 12-inch
Streetwise, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An electro pop classic – and one of the greatest tunes by New Edition! The track's got some nice street beats from Arthur Baker, and catchy lead vocals that sound a lot like the Jackson 5 at their best! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Streetwise sleeve.)

✨✧ New OrderConfusion (voc, confusion beats, inst, rough mix) ... 12-inch
Streetwise, Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A breakin' classic – and the record that almost got Arthur Baker into a lot of trouble! This is the US issue of New Order's classic electro-driven "Confusion" – offered up here on Baker's Streetwise label in a semi-legit release, with some extra mixes that take the tune past the original, into great territory for the electro crowd! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a Streetwise sleeve.)
