I could name about 20 different releases that use samples from this record. One weird thing about this release is that two tracks have identical names but differeing lengths. Walking on Sunshine ’82 is 9:30 on Side A and 4:30 on side B. No mixes mentioned....

The always excellent Kraak & Smaak released this amazing track a few years ago which samples the main vocal from this. Top stuff.

does anyone know or remember a record which sampled the walking on sunshine lyrics ,but used them sparingly over a nice melancolic piano line..played out in manchester 89/90 often by g.park at the hac,and can be found on a few old mixtapes from that time.more of a setting atmosphere tune than a bangin tune but one that remains elusive to me.any help would be most excellent.

from the label credits and tracklisting I think this is Rockers Revenge, not Eddy Grant

The original 12" on Streetwise calls the main vocal version and its edit "Walking on Sunshine '82" which seems to imply there was a pre-1982 version by Rockers Revenge. Actually, the '82 is just referring to the fact that it's an update (a cover version, in this case) of Eddy Grant's 1978 disco song.

Dance Community - Rappers Delight by Sugarhill Gang came out 1979 and it is a record that is ACE( Chic epic -good times came out either 1979 and they sampled the bassline of it quick the same year-15:00 minutes of dancefloor pleasure- it started it all.

What is then a Rockers Revenge- walking into sunshine from 1982?? Only 3 Years after the release of Rappers Delight , Walking on Sunshine by Rockers Revenge came out.

Its not a similiar Dance/ Rap record-but its ACE and groundbreaking too its the earliest House Sound Record I know- before House Music was known by name to Djs, Dancers and the world.

I dont say the records are the best of all dance records I know, but both made had a greater audience in europes discotheques than many others

and

The straight beat and drums and the clever effect/ dub ideas using two classic 80ies funk records- on the rockin sunshine mix Arthur Baker grabs like a criminal element just for a 45 seconds in the mix Central Lines classic -walking into sunshine- and D-Train s classic -youre the one for me-.

But this is not all. At the early time of 1982 they added here on this 12"a subtleness and a pure dancefloor oriented percussion energy that in this combination was new and for me, this is a very early experience in the later called style HOUSE Music.
They Sampled, they Edited

Thanks to Arthur Baker and The Rockers Revenge. May this be in a better ranking someday.

Walking on Sunshine written by Eddy Grant this cover version followed Eddy's version two years later and became a top ten hit (No4)UK 1982 for 13 weeks for Rockers Revenge, Eddy Grant did not have a hit with this until some years later in 1989.
