Walking Into Sunshine (special Larry Levan mix, original)

12-inch (Item 67047) Mercury, 1981 — Condition: Very Good

THE standout cut from Central Line – a track so big that it got the group noticed over here on our side of the Atlantic, and forever gave them a place in the hallowed halls of 80s groove! The tune chugs along at a great roller skating rhythm – with some spare use of keyboards that pepper the track alongside the catchy vocals – all made even better here on a super-sweet Larry Levan mix!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Hamilton Bohannon

Cut Loose/The Beat (part 2)
Mercury, 1979. Very Good+
The title track to Bohannon's great album of the same name – a complicated rhythm number with a warmly soulful feel! "The Beat (part 2)" has a harder edge on the rhythms – almost a hint at club sounds in the 80s import scene. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sire, 1983. Very Good+ (pic cover)
What can we say? Despite the stupid appearance of the band, "White Horse" was a classic breakdance/electro track that crossed over so big it had kids in Kansas running out to by parachute pants and squares of linoleum to play along with the kids in the Bronx. Despite that runaway hit ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
BC, Early 80s. Very Good+
Nice 12" version of this 80s groove number, with a tight "Heartbeat" type groove that's got a nice old school feel, some squelchy synths to give it electro authenticity, and a rolling almost stepper's piano line! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Prince

America/Girl
Paisley Park, 1985. Very Good+ (pic cover)
This is the one with the realllllllly long version of "America". 12-inch, Vinyl record
Paisley Park/Warner, 1986. Very Good- (pic cover)
Classic! Although folks had been saying for years that Prince was funky, "Kiss" was the first tune to really have him going to town on the instruments – in a way that we always expect from a true funk act, but not so much for the pop charts – reason alone to adore this one! ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Precision, Mid 80s. Very Good+
Early Chicago house with a vaguely Euro sound, like many of the early house singles. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Epic, 1988. Very Good+ (pic cover)
A long mix of Sade's excellent groover "Paradise" – a warmly bubbling tune that features her great vocals cascading over the top of gently percolating rhythms! There's a definite dancefloor groove here – but one that's still laidback and mellow – maybe not as jazzy as ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Atlantic, 1995. Very Good (pic cover)
The track that saved Batman Forever from total ruin. We'll be the first to admit that some of the Wu soundtrack cuts are not always up to par, but this one is an exception. Somehow, Method Man and RZA let one of their better tracks go for the soundtrack, that never appeared on any other LP. 12-inch, Vinyl record
