We are finishing up this week’s theme of records I purchased without close inspection, took home and found different discs inside the cover. In most cases, this happens with the $1 his record I actually spent a pretty penny for. 400 pennies to be exact.
Well what I got is just awful. I got a 12″ single from Italian/American post disco group Change, a group that would feature Luther Vandross and Deborah Cooper, who would later form C+C Music Factory . It was a promo single form 1983 “Got To Get Up” that did not chart, perhaps because of the promo nature. So not only was this not what I was expecting, but there was only two songs per side and they were basically the same song. I listened to both sides to try to find the differences and they were few.
bargai vinylI understand that this is not fair to Change nor producer Jacques Fred Petrus as the group had several #1 songs. However, this is completely the opposite of what I was expecting and I paid $4 for this screw job.
Well, here is the only song on this record, “Got To Get Up”. Again, apologies to the group is this is a pretty good representative of work from 1983, but I am quite disappointed with this transaction. If I got a full record, perhaps I would feel differently or if I paid a dollar.
