Lazy Sunday: On a Tuesday...

Well...What can I say about posting Lazy Sunday on a Tuesday? Being busy doesn't quite cut it...but to be honest this weekend was quite an interesting one. After partying it up at Rise this Saturday, I realized how powerful a Dance floor can be...and also how devastating. My girlfriend's got the bruises to prove it and i think i may have lost a pound from dancing that night. It's obviously an exaggeration to compare Rise to certain legendary dance clubs, but for a guy like me whose clubbing experience is partially eurotrash and partially Hip Hop Hipster galore, my night at Rise was as close as I can even perceive a night at the Paradise Garage would have been like. Exagerations? Perhaps, but that "Menergy" is exactly what lead to what i did yesterday (on Lazy Sunday)...I WENT RECORD SHOPPING. Granted I didn't make it to the LAB in NYC like i planned to, but we did go explore some of Boston's last standing oasis' for vinyl purists (as our friend Eric B likes to say). Looney Tunes might have over-prized grooves, but it's always a guarantee you'll find something in excellent conditions and something rare to take home. After browsing around for an hour (at least), we went home with some pretty good vinyl. Monday...we did it again, across the river in Cambridge. We spent way too much time at Cheapo, but patience always pays because this is what we found:


1. Patrick Cowley - Menergy ft. Sylvester
2. Patrick Cowley - Do Ya Wanna Funk ft. Sylvester (with the instrumental: WOW!)
3. Jimmy "Bo" Horne - Spank (because you always should have 2 copies!!!)
4. S- Express - Theme From S-Express (early UK acid house in near Mint condition!!!)
5. The Cut - Kindness for Weakness (w/ Larry Levan mix!!!)
6. Destination - Move on up (cover of the Curtis Mayfield classic in Mint!)


1. Boney M. - Love For Sale (Because I couldn't get the C.O.M.B.I. edit)
2. Indeep - The Record Keeps Spinning (12", Promo)
3. Steve Arrington - Summertime Lovin' (Larry Levan Mix)
