Visual - The Music Got Me

This track is one of my favorites. Synth bass lines don't get much better than this.

Visual was Boyd Jarvis and Timmy Regisford. They put out a handful of songs under that name and this one was on Prelude records in 1983. Mr. Jarvis still puts out some great music from time to time. Mr. Regisford is the dj and owner at Club Shelter in New York and can't seem to stop putting out great music on his Restricted Access label.

This is the instrumental version mixed by Tony Humphries.

The Music Got Me


Viola Wills - Gonna Get Along Without You Now

This is one for the prance-theon. Sugar Hill Records from 1979. I had this 12" for a long time before I realized how brilliant it is. Check out the cheap effects during the break.

Evelyn "Champagne" King - I Don't Know If It's Right

Evelyn "Champagne" King had a monster hit with Shame. A few of her other tracks are quite good, too. I Don't Know If It's Right is from 1977 on RCA. This is a re-edit I did of the "Disco Mix."

Hi-Tension - Hi-Tension

This is Hi-Tension by Hi-Tension from their debut LP Hi-Tension. Ha!

The lead vocalist here is David Joseph who is responsible for one of the finer dancefloor tracks I know: You Can't Hide (Your Love From Me).

This is a fun track with a nice, psychedelic break.


Cloud One - Charleston Hopscotch

Absolute Mini-Moog insanity from Patrick Adams and Peter Brown, the brains behind P&P Records. Brilliant music and a great label design (above).
