New Edition – Mr. Telephone Man (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 28th July 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

REQUEST

**Great quality control by MCA Records. I bought this record for the requester thinking it included the “Extended Version” as shown on the sleeve and labels. However once playing it I discovered it was only the 4:00 version. Also the “Instrumental Version” is not listed on the sleeve or labels. Really irritates me that I could not deliver what I had planned. I will have to find another copy that actually contains the “Extended Version” for a later post.**

“Mr. Telephone Man” is a 1984 song by New Edition, and the second single from their eponymous second album, New Edition.

“Mr. Telephone Man” included lead vocals from Ralph Tresvant, Ricky Bell and Bobby Brown with a rap by Michael Bivins and was written by Ray Parker, Jr. The song was originally recorded by teenage singer Junior Tucker, who included the song on his self-titled debut album on Geffen Records in 1983. It is almost exactly the same song as Parker’s earlier hit “A Woman Needs Love”. He also produced the original version as well as the cover by New Edition.

The single reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and was the group’s third number-one single on the Black Singles chart.

SIDE A:
Mr. Telephone Man (Extended Version) 4:00
Executive-Producer – Jheryl Busby
Written-By, Producer – Ray Parker Jr.

Mr. Telephone Man (Instrumental) 3:59

SIDE B:
Delicious 4:36

New Edition – Cool It Now (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 27th July 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

REQUEST

“Cool It Now” is a 1984 hit single by R&B/pop group New Edition, and is the first single from their eponymous second album, New Edition. The song peaked at #4 in January, 1985 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With the group now signed to MCA Records, “Cool It Now” (and the album from which it came) was given more extensive and widespread promotion than any single from their previous album (which had been released through a smaller, independent label), and helped bring the group a bigger fan base. The song was the group’s first top 10 pop single, peaking at number four on the pop chart, and their second number one R&B hit.

The song is notable for a midsection rap recited by lead singer Ralph Tresvant, which calls out the rest of the group: “Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, and Mike.” In later years the rap has been changed to include “Johnny” for the last member to join, Johnny Gill, either including his name as a fifth name called out or replacing “Bobby”.
