J.W.B Hits The Beat - Body On Body (German Import 12 Inch / 1987)

01 Body On Body (Climax Mix) 6:29
02 One Day In My Life (Nighttrain Mix) 5:04

These next two posts are requests from months ago. I've had the vinyl set a side for sometime and have finally got around to recording and photographing them. They both are from the classic German label West Side and are from 1987. This was quite the influential sound at the time. Many similar artists used the latest technologies to build and shape these electronic tracks. Underground club hits that eventually shaped the sound of all dance floors worldwide, not just underground, but R&B, Dance & Pop! 

Both the records are on loan from a good friend of mine. All art & recordings are from the actual 12 inch.

Midge Ure - Wastelands (UK 12 Inch / 1986)

01 Wastelands (Extended Mix) 6::11
02 The Chieftan / The Dancer (Live) 6:00
03 No Regrets 4:00

Recently, I attended the 2014 Retro Futura Tour. On that bill was Tom Bailey (Thompson Twins), Howard Jones, Midge Ure, China Crisis and Katrina from Katrina & The Waves. It was a superb night show that was played at the Chicago Ravinia outdoor concert venue. I've decided to post this twelve inch to salute a bit of the 80's Retro past. All art and recordings were taken directly from this 12 inch.

Ministry - I'm Falling (US 12 Inch / 1982)

01 I'm Falling 4:03
02 Primental 5:13
03 Cold Life 6:18

On of the rare and early 12 inch records released on Wax Trax! The information is visible in the photo of the back of the record jacket. A nice unique way of envelope packaging adds to the rarity of this release. All the photos and recordings were taken from this record. In addition, the photos I took and retouched have been added to the discogs site for this release.
