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.

West End, 1980. Near Mint-
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

DJ International, Late 80s. Fair
Classic late 80s Chicago house pairing the warm jazzy vibe of Larry Heard's production with Robert Owens soulful vocals. An essential that really ought to need no introduction from us! 12-inch, Vinyl record
DJ International, 1985. Very Good
A real classic from Chip E – maybe not always the strongest of the early Chicago house music pioneers, but a great talent here – with a wonderfully soulful vibe! Female lead vocals make the tune a fuller, richer one than it might be from just the stark handclap beats and basslines ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Polydor, 1979. Near Mint-
Sure, you've heard it a million times – but "I Will Survive" is one heck of a song, dammit! This original single features the 8 minute version of the cut – plenty for us – and it's backed by the Spanish version on the flip! 12-inch, Vinyl record
