Can You Guess What Groove This Is?  

Here is an early one from future New Order producer Arthur Baker. He would have produced this roller boogie mover sometime in his early twenties, and it features his wife on vocals Tina Klein Baker, later to become freestyle star Tina B.

This one came out on the always upbeat and choice Posse Records, I'm sure he also produced the Ritz 12" whose name I cannot remember on Posse a year or so later that everyone sweats. After this point in his career me and Arthur Baker's tastes diverge a little, but these early outings behind the boards at such a young age hint at what a power house behind the boards he was set to become.
