Heartbeat (club mix, party version)

12-inch (Item 486520) West End, 1981 — Condition: Very Good+

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! A monster!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing, in a West End sleeve, which has some light wear.)

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.

One of the strangest club tracks from the West End years – but a great one! The cut's an obvious reference to some of the more sensual practices of the club scene, and it's got a nice dark sound to it that's a good example of the way that late disco, early house, and post-punk sounds were ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
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

Melba Moore sounds great here – but that's to be expected, since she's working with the Philly team of McFadden & Whitehead! "Standing Right Here" begins slow and low – almost instrumental for a few minutes, as beats and bass build up the tune nicely before Melba's vocals ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

A strange one from Karen Young – an acetate that has a lush version of "God Bless America" on the main side, but with a groover on the flip that's a lot more like her clubby material! 12-inch, Vinyl record
