Posted by DjPaulT on 21st June 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“Yo! Little Brother” is a 1984 single by italian freestyle artist from NYC Nolan Thomas (born Marko Kalfa). “Yo! Little Brother,” peaked at #57 on the Billboard Hot 100. While Nolan Thomas (Marko Kalfa) did appear in the music video and sang all of the other tracks on the Yo! Little Brother album, he did not actually perform the vocals on this particular track Elan Lanier a black vocalist who also hailed from the Tri-State Area sang them. He was discovered by dance music producers Mark Liggett and Chris Barbosa of Shannon (“Let the Music Play”) fame when he was still in high school. The original 12-inch single was initially released by Emergency Records. The now famous music video was conceived by the Manager/Director/Producer team of Stu Sleppin & Bob Teeman. Sleppin & Teeman created the rock star look-a-likes that became known as The Vid Kids. Nolan Thomas & The Vid Kids toured the US in the mid 80’s. In the UK during the mid 80’s “Yo, Little Brother” received some cult status after it was aired on the Max Headroom Show (channel 4 Television).

Floy Joy – Weak In The Presence Of Beauty (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 9th March 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

“Weak in the Presence of Beauty” is a song written and originally recorded by British soul and jazz-influenced pop group Floy Joy.

“Weak in the Presence of Beauty” was the lead single from the the bands debut album Into The Hot. It peaked at #85 in the UK, lasting in the Top 100 for a total of three weeks. It was the group’s highest charting single. The song also saw minor success in Canada, where it peaked at #68 on the Singles Chart and #14 on the Adult Contemporary Chart.

Like the band’s debut album, the song (and the album) was produced by Don Was in Detroit.

In the official American Billboard Magazine of 18 January 1986, “Weak in the Presence of Beauty” was mentioned under the “Dance Trax” section. The article stated: “Floy Joy, much praised but barely charted (like Working Week, another of our undiscovered faves), sound like they have the key to both the U.S. and U.K. charts with “Weak in the Presence of Beauty” (Virgin/U.K.), a Don Was production that’s sort of Shannon-meets-“Every Breath You Take”. Addictive.”
