Vanity 6 – Drive Me Wild (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 19th February 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

A. Front

R.I.P. Denise Katrina Matthews (January 4, 1959 – February 15, 2016), better known as Vanity and sometimes credited as Denise Matthews-Smith or D.D. Winters, was a Canadian singer, songwriter, dancer, actress and model, who turned away from her acting and music career to concentrate on evangelism. Her career lasted from the early–1980s until the mid–1990s. She was the lead singer of the female trio Vanity 6 from 1981 until it disbanded in 1983. The group was well known for their 1982 R&B/funk hit “Nasty Girl”. Vanity’s music career also included two solo albums on the Motown Records label, Wild Animal and Skin on Skin.She also had a successful film career, starring in the movies The Last Dragon, 52 Pick-Up, and Action Jackson.

Due to her kidney problems which were caused by years of drug use while she worked as a performer, she had to undergo peritoneal dialysis five times a day (each session was 20 minutes long).She suffered from sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis, a rare complication of a peritoneal dialysis, and died in a Fremont, California, hospital on February 15, 2016, at the age of 57 from renal failure.

Thank you for your contribution to the music we love we will miss you Vanity.

“Drive Me Wild” was the third single released by American R&B/Funk female vocal trio Vanity 6.The group was assembled by American musician Prince in mid–1981 consisting of Vanity, Brenda Bennett and Susan Moonsey. Taken from the group’s only studio album Vanity 6. “Drive Me Wild” failed to chart.

Various – Hot Tracks Series 1 Issue 11 (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 30th September 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

Side A

While no longer in busines Hot Tracks was the LONGEST-RUNNING DJ Remix Service in the World! Based here in my home town Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Hot Tracks for years and years was carried in THOUSANDS of DJ’s Crates, as the goto service for remix edits and creative ideas on the dancefloors. For a while HOT TRACKS was known for being one of the most creative, and interesting remix services available to DJ’s. Hot Tracks was an invaluable service and an important piece of HISTORY!

This issue was released for the Christmas Season 1982 hence the inclusion of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” by Steve Algozino who gives the traditiona carol contemporary space age madness. Probably the most sought after remix in this set is “Nasty Girl” retitled “Nasty Nasty Girl” by Vanity 6. This song inclines towards the highly suggestive and downright dirty lyrics. Hot Tracks didn’t help matters any by creating “Nasty Nasty Girls”, by rearranging the entire song to enhance the already enthusiastic synthesized strings, bass line and lyrics. The new mix runs almost 8 minutes and moves quickly with a 7 inch introduction.

This set also includes “It’s A Shame” by The Spinners a Motown classic taken from The Best Of The Spinners LP released in 1973. The track has been lenghtened with new percussion tracks and equalization so that it can be mixed easily with today’s down tempo material.

Hope that you enjoy this great set of remixes from Hot Tracks.
