Re-Rip Remaster

Originally I posted this one back in 2010. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Jimmy Mack” is a 1967 pop/soul single originally recorded by Martha and the Vandellas for Motown’s Gordy imprint. Written and produced by Motown’s main creative team, Holland–Dozier–Holland.

In 1986 Sheena Easton covered “Jimmy Mack” and released it as the second single from the her seventh studio album “Do You”. The song was produced by Nile Rodgers and peaked at #65 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. In the UK and Europe, the single did not chart.

    SHEENA EASTON’s albums ‘You Could Have Been With Me’, ‘Madness Money & Music’, ‘A Private Heaven’ and ‘Do You’ have all been reissued in expanded double album editions featuring two albums on each release with extra tracks (B-sides & Remixes)

    Please have a look on http://www.amazon.co.uk

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Yeah I am aware of it but they do not include all of the mixes. Plus the remastering is way too loud.

    Everyone was digging their Jimmy’s in 1986.
    Sheena was all about Jimmy Mack, Aretha hot over Jimmy Lee, and Madonna simply wants her Jimmy more than once. LOL!
    Loving all your remasters, Paul. Thank you!
    I just wished Sheena had done a 12″ remix or extended for Machinery in 1982, her stab at New Wave.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I agree Ric I always wished for a 12″ of “Machinery” and “Devil In A Fast Car” 🙂

    george e. Reply:

    Paul, that was my dream too! A long version for “devil in a fast car”! This song still excites me when I play it!

  10. Macha Says:

    Thanks for the rip. Even though I though this wasn’t a very good cover and the song far too repetitive in nature, I did enjoy the music video!

    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Macha. I agree it is a bit repetitive and the 12″ mix even makes it more so lol.

  12. Ramone Says:

    This was an interesting release .. but not interesting enough to purhase the 12″ at the time .. I along with others preferred Do you, Devil, and Machinery ..

  13. george e. Says:

    I never looked for a 12″ of this one (I simply didn’t expect they would extend this track) so this is a welcome addition to my Sheena’s 12″s. Thanks Paul. Now, there’s a bunch of remixes spread over the singles from “The Lover In Me” album. Could we hope for those? As far as the re-issues are concerned, the sound is (by far) inferior compared to these rips, and having a lot of tracks missing, I wouldn’t call them “deluxe” at all. And something for the companies: Louder is NOT better, Re-mastering is NOT throwing out all the bass from a recording. Nuff said!
