Work That Body/Mexican

12-inch (Item 81032) West End, 1978/1979 — Condition: Very Good

2 blazing club numbers from West End! Disco queen Taana Gardner delivers the goods with "Work That Body", which is just what you'll do to this funked up disco number that bounces along at a good clip, while the Bombers drop a straight 4 on the floor beat behind their version of the break classic the "Mexican" that gives it an unstoppable pulse!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Pink label Solid Old Gold pressing.)

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.

West End, 1983. Very Good
A great bit of 80s club from Raw Silk – heavy on the beats, but topped with some sweet light vocals – making for a nice counterpoint that goes great with the hook of the tune! 12-inch, Vinyl record
West End, 1981. 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 ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sound Of New York/Becket, 1982. Very Good-
Maybe a bit goofy, but now a classic club track that's survived the test of time nicely as just about every DJ's theme song, with a monster scratchy guitar riff, and lots of that rolling bass pedal groove that was so popular in the early 80s. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Chocolate City, 1978. Very Good-
Disco remix of this nicely progressive soul track by Vernon Burch. The track's not as classic sounding as some of his work, but it does have a nice enough hook, and some righteous lyrics that keep the groove strong. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Pretty Pearl, Early 80s. Very Good-
A nice hook, cool keyboards, and a sweet flanged-out vocal style all make this one a nice bit of 80s groove! Curtis sings in a wonderfully warm style, and he delivers the song in an excellent sort of way that should have made him one of the bigger soul acts of the 80s! 12-inch, Vinyl record
4th & Broadway, 1987. Very Good- (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, 1992. Very Good-
A shameless bit of pop house – but we love it! Lidell's original tune is super catchy, with a "nu nu" vocal refrain that will keep you humming for days – and it's presented here in a bunch of different extended mixes! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1984. Very Good (pic cover)
One of our favorite tracks ever from Prince – an instantly funky, instantly catchy tune that never fails to blow us away with its dexterity! The jam sounds great, even after all these years – and it's backed by a non-LP cut, "Another Lonely Christmas" – in which Prince ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Zoo York, 1981. Very Good-
A fantastic mellow groover from Lowrell! The cut's got a bit of a Barry White approach – but with a groove that's stripped down more, and which slinks along a bassline and guitar riff that really sparkle nicely. The whole thing's super-tasty – and it's one of the best indie soul ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Kelli-Arts, Early 80s. Very Good-
2 sides of work by this oft-overlooked late Chicago soul group! The real gem here is "Share My Love With You" – a sublime harmony soul ballad, and the kind of track that rivals the best of the New Jersey vocal group scene of the early 70s! A wonderful track that should have been ... 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
Atlantic/RFC, 1981. Very Good-
A pretty catchy groover from Suzy Q – slightly cold, with a thumping dancefloor groove that's got some nice European touches! A bit quirky, but with a stomping approach that's compelling. 12-inch, Vinyl record
