Boise slut does Bowie in again!  (or, Miss Kimberly comes to NY and "This Is Not America.")  Colin Stoddard reveals "Secrets Of The Night."

Miss Kimberly last appeared on Disconet's Volume 4, Program 13 with a nice extended edit of David Bowie's "Cat People (Putting Out Fire.)"  She's back with another excellent job on the all-too-short "This Is Not America" 12" from EMI-America by David Bowie and the Pat Metheny group.  Formerly Boise's premiere club DJ and bon vivant, Miss K took the plunge and moved to the Big Apple last year where she now spins at Danceteria, teaches aerobics, and keeps her eye on Ed Koch.

Colin Stoddard is next with his most interesting production to date: "Secrets Of The Night."  (His previous "On Your Knees" and "Dark Shawdows" graced Disconet programs over the past few years, and now the former Prince of Darkness is in the limelight!)  Ed Terry co-wrote and co-produced the song with Colin at Terry Sound in Northport, LI, and Greg Lovely was executive producer.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 15:12, from 117 BPM to 120.

James and Susan Wells get a specially extended "R.S.V.P."  Casey Jones gives Earlene Bentley & Sylvester's "Stargazing" the Disconet touch.

James "My Claim To Fame" Wells and sensuous Susan are back with "R.S.V.P.", a bright, uptempo and almost religious 12" on Fanfare/UK written and produced by Ian "High Energy" Levine and Fiachra Trench.  The vocal and instrumental versions have been reworked here into a special Disconet version which really cooks.  Now you'll get some R.S.V.P.'s to play it again!

Earlene Bentley featuring Sylvester singing "Stargazing" is next, from their Record Shack/UK 12".  This continues to be a popular import in the U.S., and now with Casey Jones' hot Disconet remix, watch Earlene and Sylvester break wide open on your dance floor.  Ian Levine and Fiachra Trench also wrote and produced, with Fiachra doing the arrangements and Ian doing the mix.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 15:57 from 130 BPM to 128 BPM.

Double Dee & Steinski's "Lesson 3" for students of funky fun.  Tim Greene has "The Facts Of Life." and Jimmy "Bo" Horne says "Let's Do It."

Professors Doug DiFranco and Steve Stein (a/k/a Double Dee & Steinski, famous for "Lesson 1/ Play That Beat, Mr. DJ" and "Lesson 2/The James Brown Mix") are back with "Lesson 3."  Herman Kelly & Life's "Let's Dance" keeps the thread together, and we're pleased to welcome JFK, Lauren Bacall and Groucho to your dance floor.  Ralph MacDonald's "Jam On The Groove" congas are superb, as are Newcleus, Afrika Bambaataa and all of the other cameos on this neat street edit.

Tim Greene is next with "The Facts Of Life", an upbeat rap which is also the vocal side of Tim's debut Sugarscoop release.  Tim co-wrote and produced with Sheldon Holland and Jay D. Mitchell, and Raul did the mix at Secret Sound in NYC with Tom Gartland and Jim Lyons at the controls.  (Secret is sounding good!)  The facts of life are here for all to hear, with special guest raps by Lady T. and Lady Crush.  Jay Jay did the scratching.  Get ready to get addicted.

Jimmy "Bo" Horne completes the streetside with "Let's Do It" coming at you on Sunnyview.  No wonder this sounds so fine… Ricky Finch co-wrote and produced the track with Dave Crawford.  The groove is authentic Miami, with the light percussive embellishments and unique Jimmy "Bo" vocals which make this one a hit.  There's a weird breakdown near the end, which you'll probably use once you start working two copies of the record to good advantage.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 15:35, from 122 BPM to 117 BPM.

"I Only Love You" by Yarbrough & Peoples gets the Steven Von Blau touch.  Dan Hartman's "Second Nature" now packs a wicked punch!

Yarbrough & Peoples' "Be A Winner" album on Total Experience/RCA jumped up the charts with "Don't Waste Your Time" last year, and a little gem was buried on the B-side of Yarbrough & People's last 12" remix from the album… a song called "I Only Love You", written and produced by Jonah Ellis.  Lonnie Simmons was executive producer.  Steven Von Blau has given it a rhythmic intro and phased breaks along the way, making the song a real powerhouse for energy-hungry dance floors that appreciate quality.

Another 12" remix is next… Dan Hartman's "Second Nature" from his "I Can Dream About You" LP on MCA, remixed by John Luongo into vocal and dubs and now combined here is this special Disconet version.  With Martha & The Vandellas clearly on their heatwave mind, the song has spunk, and everyone loves a Detroit saxophone.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 15:09, from 162 BPM (beats per minute) to 178.
