As expected: I ordered this for curiousity and it seems that this is wrong listed. Cover says BB but record is BBR (and red label)

There is no time gap between B1 & B2 -- it is basically one long track.

This is probably one of the early Freestyle songs I heard. Very good how it blends traditional synthpop with some freestyle elements. A great effort by Shep Pettibone.

In the late '80s and early '90s, the sound of New York club music was either freestyle, or mellow, deep house, or soulful garage house with a strong disco element. But before that, c. 1984-1985, house was strictly confined to Chicago, and only a few New York producers dabbled in the genre. The resulting records were at most just "housey", treating the Chicago sound as more of an affectation to breathe new life into post-boogie R&B than as something to be fully immersed in.

"Baby Talk" is a great example. The song was a huge mainstream club hit in 1985-1986, but was little-known on weekday radio, at least where I'm from. It was very well made—one of Mark Berry's best productions. It has somewhat freestyle-ish pop vocals and a relatively complex-percussion backing track. It's housey in an early, experimental way, before the genre became so well-defined. Some may find it too "busy," but personally, I love this hybrid sound; it's a little more accessible and fun, not so monotonous as what was to come.
