Heartbeat (club version, party version)

12-inch (Item 24205) West End, 1981 — Condition: Very Good
Temporarily Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

❔

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!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Sire, 1983. Very Good+ (pic cover)
What can we say? Despite the stupid appearance of the band, "White Horse" was a classic breakdance/electro track that crossed over so big it had kids in Kansas running out to by parachute pants and squares of linoleum to play along with the kids in the Bronx. Despite that runaway hit ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1978/1994. Very Good+
One of Bootsy's best tracks from the old days – served up here on a promo 12" single that was issued at the time of the Warner Archives CD release for The Best Of Bootsy. The remix is better than you'd expect, too – and really keeps the original flavor of the song! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Pandisc, 1983. Near Mint-
Before Steinski & Mass Media were cutting up JB, there were medleys, and before Lee Fields and the whole crop of funk revivalists, there were plenty of artists out there aping James too. This early 80s 12" brings the best of both worlds together for a funky medley of "Papa's Got A ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

War/Lonnie Jordan

Galaxy/Junkie To My Music
MCA, 1979. Very Good+
A split single from War, and lead singer Lonnie Jordan. "Galaxy" is a later funky classic by the group – strutting out with some sweet funky riffing, ensemble vocals, and a powerful groove that's always been a dancefloor pleaser! "Junkie To My Music" has a syncopated ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Promo only issue of this track off the Sun Rises. . .LP, with the dope Primo track served up instrumentally on the flip! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Celluloid, 1985. Very Good+
Long before the KRS/Shan battles, D.ST. was claiming "Bronx is the home of hip hop" on this track. It almost has an early Whodini sound, with more MC'ing, vocoder effects, and a live rhythm section than his other dj oriented tracks like "Mega Mix 2." 12-inch, Vinyl record
Rawkus, 1999. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Two tracks from Common Sense. "Like They Used To Say" is produced by Dug Infinite, with a sample of the JB's "Pass the Peas" for the chorus, and Maseo of De La cutting in samples from over a dozen hip hop classics – from Ultramagnetic to EZ & Troup to MC Lyte to T-La ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
