Happy Days  

I've never found the bay area to be a record digger's paradise but as of late have been enjoying some good medium rare scores. I have been thinking about this record for some time now and was quite pleased when it turned up recently in an east bay dollar bin. Northend was a studio project consisting of Tony Carbone, Russell Presto and the insanely prolific producer Arthur Baker. The trio was also responsible for a few other twelve inches on Emergency Records featuring vocalist Michelle Wallace. Her Jazzy Rhythm single is well sweated but this one seems to be the record most are looking out for. Michael Jonzun of the Jonzun Crew handled co-production and Tee Scott gave the final touches on the mix making this flawless blend of boogie and proto house an all star collaboration.

    is it me or are the tracks not downloadable anymore? Just had a Safari update - could it be that?

    I've also heard that this was a inspiration source to Madonna's Holiday. If you listen closely, it's not hard to hear it.

    Dave! Yes, it is well known that Madonna was jocking this track and you can hear the influence indeed.
