Various ‎– Rhythm Stick 1-8 (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on October 20th, 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

A. Front

Trick or treat goblins and ghouls. This is a special Rhythm Stick brew just for you. A special Halloween issue.

Rhythm Stick was a DJ-only subscription/remix service based in Cazadero, CA (USA) that operated during 1989 -1992 ~ releases were pressed in limited quantities and featured mixes of Mainstream dance / Top 40 / NRG / dance classic tracks released on double vinyl and their CD’s contained the ‘best of’ tracks from those vinyl releases.

Rhythm Stick (With The Adventures of Mikie Man) staff consisted of the following people: Gini Spiersch, Director; Steve Bourasa, Producer & Mixer; and mixing djs: Glenn Cattanach, Mario S. David, Jim “Hip-Hop” Hopkins, Mark Watkins, and would also feature guest DJ’s.

The subtitle, (With The Adventures of Mikie Man) was connected to their logo and continuing cartoon series. These cartoon characters were originally drawn by Gini each night that Michael Lewis dee-jayed. Over a two year period, three books of drawings were completed and now with Rhythm Stick as their medium, the “Adventures of Mikie Man” were presented by the artist, Jameo. Each jacket would present the character cartoons representing the staff and contributors to Rhythm Stick.

All productions of Rhythm Stick were dedicated to the late Michael J. Lewis, the original “Mikie Man”.

J. Geils Band – Fright Night (Netherlands 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on October 16th, 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

Re-Rip Newly Remastered

Originally I posted the US 7″ on August 22, 2011. Since that time I obtained the Netherlands 12″ which sounds much better. I decided since it is the Halloween season that I would rip the 12″ and post it. I am also posting this track in 24 bit flac for the very first time.

“Fright Night” is the theme song from the 1985 film of the same name performed by American rock group J. Geils Band. The song reached #91 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in 1985. After the single release the group then disbanded.

The b-side “Boppin’ Tonight” is performed by the Fabulous Fontaines and is also featured in the film and on the very hard to find original soundtrack.

The movie is an American vampire comedy horror film directed by Tom Holland and starring William Ragsdale, Chris Sarandon, Stephen Geoffreys and Roddy McDowall. The film was orginally released on August 2, 1985.

3 Speed – Once Bitten (US 7″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on October 15th, 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Once Bitten” is the title track of the 1985 horror/comedy film of the same name. “Once Bitten” was performed by Synth rock band 3 Speed. The band was formed in Boston, Massachusetts, USA led by frontwoman Linder Chase.

The band was discovered after their manager sent a demo tape to a studio in Los Angeles, completely unbeknownst to the band members. An executive was listening to their demo tape on a radio on his desk when Samuel Goldwyn, Jr. walked by, heard Linda Chase singing, and said that he wanted the band on a plane the following weekend.

In addition to “Once Bitten,” another song by the band called “Stop Talking About Us” was used by MCA/Curb Records on the aforementioned soundtrack. This song was not written for the movie, but was actually a demo that the band had previously recorded. The version that appears on the soundtrack album is the demo.

3 Speed enjoyed considerable success after the release of the Once Bitten soundtrack; at one point they were even opening for Pat Benatar. MCA Records, however, never petitioned the band to record a full-length LP, commissioning them instead to write songs for more soundtracks, including those for Rad and Savage Streets.

Chase continues to write & perform music and work in recording studios.

This US only 7″ promo contains the same track on both sides.

SIDE A:
Once Bitten 3:40

Update

Posted by DjPaulT on October 15th, 2014

Hi guys. Thank you for all of the well wishes I really appreciate them. I went yesterday and had an ultrasound test. The nurse called this morning with the results and told me that I have gall stones. She said that that my doctor will be refering me to a surgeon to see if I need to have my gall bladder removed. Now I am just waiting to hear what to do next. I am feeling fine today so a new music post will be shortly following this update.

If and when the time comes for surgery I will let you know about any possible down time.

Regards,

Paul

No Post Til Wednesday

Posted by DjPaulT on October 13th, 2014

Hi everybody. I wanted to let you all know that I will not be posting again until Wednesday. Over the weekend I started have severe abdominal pain on the right side. I spent most of Saturday in bed until the pain finally subsided. Early Monday morning 1 am the pain woke me up out of sleep so I decided to go to the Emergency room. In the Emergency room they did a sonigram and told me that they think it may be my gall bladder. The doctor told me that I would need to schedule a ultrasound to make sure. I scheduled the ultrasound for tomorrow (Tuesday). To be honest I was going to post today but just couldn’t get into it because of lack of rest. Tomorrow (Tuesday) I will be busy with the ultrasound and seeing the doctor.

Regards,

Paul
