Heartbeat (club version, party version)

12-inch (Item 24205) West End, 1981 — Condition: Very Good-
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.
(In a West End sleeve.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

West End, 1982. Very Good+
One of Larry Levan's biggest crossover moments – as "Don't Make Me Wait" has the Peech Boys breaking out of the Paradise Garage underground, into the mainstream of soul in the early 80s. Not much in the vocal department, but a catchy hook nonetheless, and with plenty of bubbly bass ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Virgin, 1989. Very Good (pic cover)
Sort your life out! Sure, it's a shameless follow-up to "Back To Life", but the track's still the best one from their second album – and the 12" mixes here all have that great chugging funky Soul II Soul groove! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Personal, 1983. Very Good (pic cover)
The great electro classic – and one that will make you pop so much your shoulders will get sore! The single features the long "Din Daa Daa remix" – with lots of nice parts that drop out, and have the chorus popping out with great isolated sound. Also features the dub mix, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sound Of New York/Becket, 1982. Very Good+
Maybe a bit goofy, but now a classic club track that's survived the test of time nicely as just about every DJ's theme song, with a monster scratchy guitar riff, and lots of that rolling bass pedal groove that was so popular in the early 80s. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sugar Hill, 1979. Very Good+
Three female singers/MC's with backing by the Sugarhill Gang Band – and rhymes that sound like they might have been written by the Sugarhill Gang. Maybe it's not up to the standards of other early female MC's like Sha Rock of the Funky 4 +1, but this is more like a 1979-era slow-tempo ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1978. Very Good+
An amazing tune – and one that still never fails to blow our mind! Just the first few notes of this one make our jaws drop in awe – wondering how George Clinton managed to get these odd and magical sounds out of the bass, guitar, and keyboards – and even though the tune's a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Motown, 1975. Very Good
A rare 12" single with one of Willie Hutch's greatest tracks! The driving funky groove of "Brothers Gonna Work It Out" was one of the best things about the film The Mack – and the cut's been a classic for years with just about everyone, from funk fans, to hip hoppers, to early ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Bad Boy, 1995. Very Good (pic cover)
... 12-inch, Vinyl record
RCA, 1979. Very Good+
A dancefloor anthem if there ever was one – and produced by August Darnell, pre Kid Creole. Strong female vocals in unison – and a hook that just won't quit for the west village clubs! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Emergency, 1980. Very Good+
Monster club track that's been sampled countless times for classic Miami bass & southern rap songs, with a super heavy and instantly recognizable bass line. 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
Bad Boy, 1997. Very Good
