China Burton - You Don't Care  

At long last a proper rip of one of the finest disco cuts ever recorded. A year after I first dropped this gem on Beat Electric, I finally present to you the full uncut long version of You Don't Care (About Our Love) by China Burton. Ripped from a near mint pressing on DJ Joel Vuitton's incredible rig, this mp3 is pure gold.

In case you missed this post the first time around:

China Burton was a British songwriter that had success in the 80's penning tracks for Julian Lennon and Taylor Dayne amongst others. His own recording output was sparse but he did manage to release one single "You Don't Care (About Our Love)" in 1979 on the Logo Records label. This ultra rare cut has one of the hottest breakdowns of any disco number period. The soaring strings, flanged out guitar riffs and synth effects blow this track through the roof. No wonder the single fetches for over $300.00 when it very randomly pops up.

    Gorgeous is right. Thanks for offering this one, I've been looking forever and you can't even find an MP3. Finally I can hear it in all its glory!

    Indeed there is a skip. We will rip it again and repost soon.

    Winning record. Thank you for sharing!

    Its a shame you're doing these perfect rips but can't break us off with a full 320! Thanks though, been wanting this forever...

    There are encoded with LAME preset Insane which is pretty much as good as a 320. I personally don't play mp3s out, but I do listen to them at home on a pretty good system and they sound pretty detailed.

    Our intent with sharing these tracks is to expose people to the quality WAX we are collecting. Fine if you want to DJ these mp3's out, but at the end of the day they will never sound as good off of your laptop or cdj as they do on vinyl.

    Vinyl=The Truth. Like it ?? Buy the record!!

    it is at 320kps for the most part, its just that its variable bitrate, there is no point having a silent passage encoded at 320kps so the LAME encoder brings the rate down, what do you need 320 kilobits per second of relative silence for? and even then it only fluctuates down to 192kps.

    The recording is sweet.

    I produced this record and I'm delighted to see that over 30 years after it was released (and sunk almost without trace) it's finally getting some love. Thanks to the great musicians and a killer arrangement by John Altman and beautifully recorded and mixed Tony Platt. Anyone out there know where China is now?

    Great track indeed.
