Crash Goes Love (blaster mix, master mix, dub)/Sweet Thing

12-inch (Item 42979) Streetwise, 1984 — Condition: Very Good+
(pic cover)

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.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

RCA (UK), 1984. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Quite possibly one of the greatest southern soul singles of all time! Sure, you know Loleatta best for her disco work – but "Cry To Me" is a wonderful weepy ballad, done with these haunting strings that literally "cry" with the song, and written by Sam Dees with that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

4th & Broadway, 1987. Near Mint- (pic cover)
An offshoot of the 4AD rock scene from the UK, this number sampled Rakim from "Paid In Full" to great effect – and it made quite a bit of sense that the track was issued on 4th & Broadway in the US (probably also a legal move, so that the label wouldn't sue 4AD for copping a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mercury, 1981. Very Good+ (pic cover)
Bass pedals, midtempo rhythms, and a sublime early 80s groove – a cut that crossed over big but still sounds great today – and a wonderful mix of styles that's easily one of the standouts from the time! The keys are electric, but never too cold – and Junior's vocals on the hook ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+
Herbie at his most R&B oriented for the 70s – but also pretty darn great as well! "You Bet Your Love" is a really groovy little number – one that begins here with a long-rolling intro that's got a great rollerskating feel – and which opens into a beautifully spacey ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

An odd collaboration between Afrika Bambaataa and John Lydon that was sort of club hit at the time, but we're not sure what to make of it these days. Dense production by Bill Laswell with his standard heavy beats, guitar and synth lines. The vocal version has Bambaataa and Lydon predicting the end ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
