First time reissue on 7'' format, incl the killer Boyd Jarvis and Timmy Regisford remix (more synths, heavy claps) and the normal (more tame) disco version of the song in edit form - TIP!I wrote and sung the song as a demo originally” says singer-songwriter and producer Beverley Hanshaw “My friend Mary and I used to sing together and she asked me for the track and we recorded a version. My husband at the time Frank Owens who played piano got all the musicians together to record the session”
Conductor-arranger-pianist Frank Owens had already worked as a musical director for many artists such as Petula Clark, Lena Horne, Freda Payne, Melba Moore and John Denver and had access to the best session musicians in New York.
Recorded in 1983, for a one-off debut release by an independent the credits are impressive. Brian Brake on drums, David Spinozza on guitar, Jimmy Smith on synths, Victor See Yuen on percussion... all established jazz sessionists in their prime.
As if that wasn’t already New York enough, Boyd Jarvis and Timmy Regisford put their ‘bedroom music’ stamp on things. The duo were given carte blanch to rework the song and make a gateway for club play with their signature synths, drum machines and overdubs.
