We Should Get Together  

  I believe our hosting was successfully moved at this point so I'll go ahead and put up a new post. This is a record that has evaded me for a while and I finally tracked down a copy. Released towards the end of peak boogie era in 1985 Shebba's We Should Get Together is still a fine example of the sound and has remained one of my favorite tunes for years. This one off track features production from Young & Company who brought us classics like Joy "I Need Your Love". The classic Young & Co. sound is in full effect here with excellent bass guitar work. I really like the '85 flavor of this one with drum programming that reminds me of Miami freestyle/electro, albeit a more laid back version. The skittering delayed percussion and cowbell sounds really tie together the atmosphere of this masterpiece.

No News Is News  

 I have been struggling with moving beardodisco, B.E's music server, over to a new a hosting provider. The old hosting provider decided to make wild claims that we were using their datacenter services to distribute gigabytes of funk mp3's over the internet, blah blah blah, which went against their terms of service.


 Anyhow, things are back up, I just need to get around to setting things so the other B.E members can contribute. Until then its just me.

 By way of an apology I'm going to put up an instrumental I'm really into, the UK 1986 remastered instrumental of Kreamcicle's No News Is News..
