✨✧ Taana GardnerHeartbeat (club version, party version) ... 12-inch
West End, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An undisputed classic! The funky grooves of this early 80s single by Taana make it our favorite by her – and it's a non-stop killer that's served up here in a 9 and 6 minute version. Used as the sample for "Buddy" by De La Soul, and for a whole bunch of other tracks too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Taana GardnerWhen You Touch Me (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
West End, 1979. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the most baroque singles we've ever heard from Taana Gardner – a long number that starts out with a spare and spacey vocal on the first minute or two, then which suddenly leaps into a tightly-crafted uptempo groove – running for over 10 minutes, and featuring lots of instrumental solo work in between Taana's vocal madness! Mixed by Larry Levan, too. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(In a West End sleeve. Label has some marker.)

Aural ExcitersSpooks In Space/Marathon Runner ... 12-inch
Ze, 1978. Very Good ... $5.99
A great single from Aural Exciters – a hip New York ensemble from the late 70s, one of the seminal groups of the downtown post-disco crossover scene! The tracks feature work by August Darnell, James Chance, Bob Blank, Taana Gardner, and Coati Mundi – and is very much in the playful ensemble dancefloor mode of some of Darnell's other projects from the time – a bit more soulful than Kid Creole, with less of the quirky disco of other groups, and a very solid approach overall! "Spooks In Space" has a great chanting vocal quality, undercut nicely by a stepping space-bound bassline – and "Marathon Runner" is more standard club, but in a way that features some great vocals from Gardner! 12-inch, Vinyl record
