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.

Very early single by Loleatta Holloway, and with much more of a raw southern soul feel than you'll find on other records. "Rainbow" is her version of the Gene Chandler classic, and although it's pretty faithful to the original, Loleatta gives it a nice new sound. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Mellow, Late 60s. Very Good-
We don't know much about Marvin Sims other than his deep soul records from Chicago, of which this one's a gem! The track's a long 2-part mellow one, with a sound that's more southern than Chicago, and which is filled with excellent vocals by Marvin – who's got a style here that's a little ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Late 60s. Very Good
A great obscure one from Bobby! The cut's an extended groover with a hard blaring "sock boogaloo" soul feel to it – and we almost never see it at all! Great vocals all the way through, and stone cold production from James! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Aries, Late 60s. Very Good
Two excellent cuts from this obscure Chicago soul singer! "Hurry Change" is a sweet soulful number, with Tenison's vocals raspily laying out the slightly sad lyrics, with additional vocal backing by the Operation Breadbasket Choir. "Baby, I'm A Fool" is great, too – with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
