Be My Wife/Art Decade (live Perth 1978) (pic disc)

7-inch (Item 961667) Parlophone, 1977/1978 — Condition: Sealed

Fantastic work from the Berlin period of David Bowie – one of his few catchy tunes from the time, backed with an unreleased live recording! "Be My Wife" is fantastic – not only does the tune have all the darkness of the Heroes/Low period, but it also has a surprisingly optimistic upturn in the lyric – which makes for a wonderful contrast. The studio version of "Art Decade" originally appeared on the Low album, but this version is a never-issued live take recorded in Perth in 1978! All that, and a great double-sided pic single too.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Rare work by Garland – recorded away from Chicago, in Philly, at Sigma Sound, with production and songwriting by Bunny Sigler and Phil Hurtt, and arrangements by Norman Harris and Ronnie Baker. The combination of Green's bluesy vocals with a smooth Philly soul approach works very nicely ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Volt, 1974. Very Good
A really great single by this obscure Stax group that we wish got the chance to make a full LP! "Stop Doggin Me" is an easy tempo southern diva number – sung in a style that reminds us a bit of Ann Peebles, and with sweetly bubbling Memphis production that only enforces that sound! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
