Change - Lover's Holiday (Jim Burgess mix)

This whole album is good really. I wish I could post the whole thing, which I might do, I dunno. But for now, here is the track that Nandy highlighted in pink on the back sleeve. Every track has a star next to it on the label.

The Whispers - And The Beat Goes On 45 RPM

You may know "And The Beat Goes On" as a sample from Will Smith's "Miami" better than you know it as a song by The Whispers. Which is a shame because it's a much better song than "Miami". Also, "Can You Do The Boogie" was co-produced by Carrie Lucas who was featured last month.

Time Bandits - Live it Up

Ok, so it's time to come clean about the lack of posts lately. I don't really like to talk about personal hardships, but my computer got struck by lightning about 3 weeks ago. I've been trying to post when I can get a hold of a computer so it might be like this for a bit until I can get a hold of a permanent computer. But I do promise to update at least once a week every week so don't be a stranger to the site.

I couldn't get an image for this one or scan it in because this laptop isn't cooperating with my scanner but the cover isn't really what it's all about anyway. Standard Nandy markings throughout: an ND written on a yellow sticker on the cover and a big asterisk on the b-side label. Music-wise it's a little bit of everything that Nandy and I dig: disco, funk and new-wave. Enjoy.

(From Live it Up 12" single, 1982 CBS/Columbia; On 12" vinyl; Found at Goodwill of Orlando, Michigan location for $1.00)

Sa-Fire - Boy, I've Been Told

In anticipation of Sa-Fire's performance at Club Tabu this Wednesday, July 16th, I'm here with a couple of cuts off of her 12" single "Boy, I've Been Told". Nandy had two copies of this one at the thrift store but I only took one. I think the other is still there if you guys are looking to get a piece of the Nandy collection (also there is a copy of the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack that Nandy donated that I haven't been able to get a hold of so I think that is floating around in the world too).

But I digress. If you dig these tracks, make it out to the show on Wednesday. It's free for 21 and up so what do you have to lose?

Shalamar - Inky Dinky Wang Dang Doo

Sorry again for the delayed posts. Hard times here at Found Vinyl. Know what can cheer us all up though? Some disco from the height of disco ketch, "Inky Dinky Wang Dang Doo" by Shalamar. Again, from Soul Train records. Those guys can do no wrong.

Falco - America [City of Grinzing Version]

I decided to forgo Nandy day in favor of a song that celebrates the greatness that is the great U.S OF A. And who better to provide such a song than the greatest Neue Deutsche Welle artist ever, Falco?
