Rock & Roller Skates/Body Talk

12-inch (Item 440253) PPL, 1980 — Condition: Sealed

Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

✈

We're always suckers for a roller skating groove – and this tasty little number is no exception! The groove here is almost more club than roller skate, but there's plenty of space in between the rhythms – and some nice back/forth moments that really showcase the best aspect of the genre. The "rock" in the title is a reference to a bit of guitar which makes an appearance – and vocals here are both by guys and gals! "Body Talk" is more conventional club – not bad, but occasionally a bit silly.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed original pressing!)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

EMI, 1985. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Think what you want about the Pet Shop Boys, this tune's still got a simple charm that we love – one of the last gasps of early 80s British pop seeping into American club – and a nicely spoken lyric that still beats out most of what was going on in US pop at the time! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Karen Young

Hot Shot (voc, inst)
West End, 1978. Very Good+
Karen's big cut, the only one we'll remember her for, and a big campy track in its day. Served up here on an original West End single, with vocal and instrumental versions both stretching past the 8 minute mark. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Motown, 1979. Very Good
The title track to Diana Ross' classic album with Ashford & Simpson – served up here in a special disco mix! The single's backed by a track produced by Hal Davis, lifted from the Thank God It's Friday soundtrack. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Roadrunner, 1981. Very Good (pic cover)
An unlikely, but huge influence on the Chicago and Detroit house scenes of the 80s! Liaisons Dangereuses were a German combo with a sound that was part post-punk, part post-prog – electronic-based music that was somewhere in the neighborhood of Cabaret Voltaire and DAF. And like those two ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Tabu, 1977. Very Good-
Two classic club-driven tunes by this late 70s funk ensemble! "Lovin" is a strong disco number – female vocals in the lead, and lots of swirling grooves that go on for over 7 minutes in this mix! "Stormin" is even better – a funky ensemble tune, with some really ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Afrika Bambaataa & The Jazzy 5/Kryptic Krew

Jazzy Sensation (Bronx version, Manhattan version, inst)
Tommy Boy, Early 80s. Very Good-
One of the classic early Tommy Boy twelves – with the great Gwen McCrae sample from "Funky Sensation", and an excellent performance by Bam and the Jazzy 5. The 5 handle rap duties on the "Bronx Version" a-side, with the slight smoother female approach to the vocal handled ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Fresh, 1986. Very Good-
This is Just-Ice's first single, with a track that didn't make it to the LP, plus the original version of "Latoya" that's better than the LP version. "Put That Record Back On" is the cut here, with classic Mantronix production, from around the same time as his other big singles. ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
