Sterling job by Moplen on this fabulous boogie jam. Burgess at his best.

Give the multitracks to Joey Negro ! Joey is a genius to bring back to life those 80's boogie classic !

Moplen brings nothing new ... not even close to the original Shep version.

Pitching it up all the way on the Technic 1200 (+8) brings it to 108-109bpm.

I would really love to see a 7" pressing of Heartbreaker. Always wondered if Salsoul made such a version since many releases from their catalogue came out on both formats.

Surprised that Above Board would allow this to happen. Was the tape machine running slow that day? Not calibrated?
Did anyone bother listening to the test pressings?

Yes, "Heartbreaker" is great, but:

Nobody seems to be talking about the B side, so I will. "Stranger" is a nod to Michael Jackson/Quincy Jones no doubt, and in some ways every bit as good.

So glad this has the pressing mistake. The song is way better pitched down. Blows the original out of the water.

Just arrived in the mail, definitely agree with everyone else here: pressed pitched right down.

was the engineer asleep when this record was cut ? record needs to played with the pitch speed up at +8 to sound normal
