This Beat Is Mine! (*) Paul Simpson feat. Terri Jeffries – Everybody’s A Star (Cooltempo)
How lucky we’ve been back at the end of the 80’s with so many incredible top class pieces of music around. Feels like they were coming from everywhere. I mean, here in the UK, from Acid Jazz to Rare Groove and Brit-Soul. But also Stateside, in Chicago, New York or New Jersey. We lived such a creative and exciting period.
Back to this jam, was it House, Garage or an updated (Dance) version of R&B? Who gives a damn at the end, as this music happened to be so enlightening. ‘Everybody’s A Star’… Just the way we felt back then, dancin’ until the morning lites. Not that far from some of L.A. Mix productions, as a matter of fact.
You could tell how Paul Simpson perfectly integrated his obvious Disco/Funk background on this firing piece. Just the way he did with Adeva on the memorable ‘Musical Freedom’. But this time with Terri Jeffries singing her heart out on this. I just can’t understand how such a talent hasn’t managed to release more than one album.
We just need more of these, don’t we??? And I suppose even more in the troubled times we’re living…
