Gretchen's Illin' Tape, 6/22/86  

We should probably take a breather for a few months while you all digest the collection that Black Shag just posted; but I think you might appreciate this mix.

Beat Electric reader Gretchen from Milwaukee sent me this cassette full of ghettoblaster jamz to rip and post on the blog. It is in the red the whole time, but what a killer set of tracks. Unfortunately, it looks like side B was taped over with Earth Wind and Fire, which cuts off the first two tracks and then resumes. Enjoy!

Midnight Star - Headlines
Lisa Lisa - Can You Feel The Beat
Davina - Rock, Shake, and Roll
King MC - What Have I Done For Your Lately
Carmen - Throw Down
World Class Wreckin' Cru - Mission Possible
Hanson & Davis - Tonight (Love Will Make It Right)
Model 500 - No Ufo's
Model 500 - Time, Space, Transmat
Johnny Kemp - Just Another Lover

    oh, and FWIW, i think "Hot Box" was by The Preps

    and "Guilty" was Yarbrough & Peoples.

    Yeah, I have not heard Hot Box, but it probably great. Early house from Detroit.

    Sorry, it was not the Manhattans, it was Earth, Wind, and Fire. Thanks a lot for letting us post the mix. I was going to send it back today but I ran out of time. It will go back tomorrow.

    and I will.
