The A-Side is nice but for me it's all about the B-Side which plays an outstanding ballad! 5/5

Shill bids on Ebay and the usual wet dreams about fantasy prices here on Discogs..
This is an O.K. record to me. It's not bad but also not breathtakingly good. B-Side has nice a groove and that's pretty much it.

63 users claim to own this when only about 8 copies are known to exist. This gives a good insight how many fake collections there are on Discogs.

Beware, many copies for sale are not the OGs but bootlegs. Even sellers often don't know how to tell the difference. Make sure to check the runout etchings and compare them with the images here on Discogs. The original is hard to find!

The melody in "Magic" is imitated from "The Ritchie Family - I'll Do My Best (For Your Baby)".

Seriously, who spends 25 Eur on a mediocre sounding vinyl-rip bootleg when he can have the OG for the same price?

Agree. Plus "I'm Alone: Instrumental" which is a killer slow jam!

Also the bootleg has a small pressing ring on the labels while the OG has a large one.

There are a few characteristics to distinguish the original press from the 2012 reissue. Most prominent is the black star on the labels. The reissue has it on both sides while the original only has it on the A-Side. On the B-Side the reissue has the year ... See full review

For a contract with one of the mentioned major labels the band would have needed to change their production style a lot since those majors had their own specific sound requirements and were quite restrictive with the selection at the time. From a today's ... See full review

Well, this song is about true events about a cruel serial killer on the west coast at the time. Apparently he wanted to raise awareness amongst younger people with this production which I respect and appreciate a lot. Of course he could have made ... See full review

Yes, Phreek was first but Class Action was more known and has often been sampled in House tunes so I referred to that.

Nonsense. This is one in a series of dubplates that has been manufactured and sold on request over a French website. I even had one of them in my hands and can confirm it. It has sharp edges, glued labels and no rings. It's says "promo" and "limited ... See full review

@ andn I don't think so. They're handmade dubplate cuts from a known french bootlegger.
posted a review of Hot Lunch* - Let Me Know. 2 months ago
Both versions are from the same master discs. They have identical runouts and sound exactly the same. The only difference is the color of the paper label.

Not really. Different production style here and not like the Atlantic major label sound of that time.

@ Cigarretes: maybe that's something you should ask that seller? Because he set the price here. Anyway, reissues don't matter much in the OG game.

@ Cigarretes: LOL I have seen so many times that users fake sales, bids, stats, etc. on virtual marketplaces. In both directions! I even know some who admitted doing so. Speculation is very common in the collector's scene. It's part of the game and ... See full review

posted a review of Gordon Thomas - Boogie Dancing. 3 months ago
This must be one of the worst boogie records I've ever heard. I'm all keen for the obscure side of funk/soul and often appreciate style over talent but this here is something that really misses the point (for me). Apart from the fact that the vocalist ... See full review

@ d_a_n_t: it was in demand already before that compilation. The comp only added to it. There must be a reason why it blew up on YT before. Maybe some popular DJ played it.
posted a comment on Franklyn (2) - Future Love. 3 months ago
If they at least added some additional elements to substitute the vocals. In this case it's just a dub version that feels a bit empty. I prefer the vocal version at all times.

It's worth what people are willing to pay for it (see sales history).

Because it's on of the best records in the genre and also very rare. It's worth every cent imo.

I love that DX7 bass. It was state of the art in the mid 80s.

The instrumental version on the B-side is one of the most beautiful 70s funk/soul jams I know. So deep and dreamy.

Very nice Boogie versions here. Different to the 7". Soundwise I'd say this 12" came out around '84 or '85.

The B-Side title is not to be confused with the 1978 same-titled 7" release by Lou Ragland (Sonlight (3) - Get Together). This is a completely different artist/song here from 10 years later!
