Steve closes 115 with Yvonne Gage, Living In A Box and Professor Funk & the House Brothers

26 01 2012

Yvonne Gage – Doin’ It In A Haunted House Chycago International Music (C.I.M.) US 1984. Famously sampling/re-working parts from Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, it could also be found on her LP ‘Virginity’ and did reasonably well for her on the dancefloors, even though ‘Thriller’ had been and gone and was possibly over-played by time of release. # 45 UK

Living In A Box – Blow The House Down Chrysalis 1989.
The English trio had Dan Hartman co-produce this track for them, taken from their second album ‘Gatecrashing’, the title track to which we played a few weeks back. # 10 UK MIX

Professor Funk & the House Brothers – Work Your Body Rap Underground US 1986.
Joe Smooth and Rocky Jones (owner of DJ International Records), were co-producers on this, a sort of rap version of the House giant ‘Jack Your Body’ by Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley… or is it?. I’m guessing it was made around the same time as the Hurley classic and at one time even vied for supremacy.
