Jumpin' - 15Th Anniversary Crystal Edition - Track-Listing

Recommended Posts

Not strictly S.S. territory but thought it may be worth posting as there's some belters on here if you like Soul music in general and have fairly diverse tastes. The Nobles track is just brilliant plus Skip Mahoney usually hits the spot, so there's probably a few things of interest on here for S.S.ers. Harold Melvin & The Blue-Notes fans could do a lot worse then check out the two BRILLIANT mid 80's tracks on here which kinda slipped through the net but are just superlative and right up there in HM&TBN's best performances. And if you're into Modern Northern it doesn't get any better than "Let Her Feel It" by Simplicious - a pure Modern belter featuring Eugene Wilde on lead vocals. Has to be heard to be believed. Anyway, here's the spiel...........

A long, long time ago, in the late 1990's Harmless released two definitive must-have albums of great Disco music - Jumpin' Vols 1 & 2.

So, on the 15th anniversary of Harmless Records, we thought we'd knock out another one and try and fill a few gaps in the process......

We managed to track down a healthy dozen or so tunes that don't appear to be currently available on CD anywhere which is handy if you're a collector. So it was a massive relief to track down the current owners of the Philly World and Total Experience catalogues - filled a few more gaps right there for a start.

What we wanted to do was track a particular vibe over a 10 year period from circa '76-'86 whilst keeping with the ethos of the original series. In many ways this particular volume snatches numerous pieces of genius right across that time-span. We did it chronologically 'cos it just made sense. Out in 3 weeks so go buy........

A beautiful, beautiful brilliant record Tony. In my top 3 80's tunes without a doubt. The harmonies are just incredible aren't they? First time on CD I think.......

I've never heard a bad tune by her which is saying something.

Confined to the dustbins of history and the canyons of Malc's mind. That's all Donna has to look forward to LOL.......:thumbsup:

Definitely my territory Ian - I expect you've got some freebies for Surrey housewives who've spent all the child benefit already this month?

I'll put garlic through your letterbox if you don't send one immediately :thumbsup:

Some folk on YouTube asking where you can get some of the tracks, so might be an idea to post details up there.

Deffo a freebie for you Theresa if you drop me a PM with your address my dear. (Note: this is only open to Surrey housewives who've spent the child benefit this month OK?).

Good thinking on adding details to the You Tube clips - I'll add it the never ending list! Got any more jobs for me whilst you're at it laugh.gif

Should be a nice boost as we're in @ No.26 on the Amazon comp chart!
