Fresh Gordon - Gordy's Groove

I had to order this from the counter. I didn't know you could do that. My mate informed me when I was checking the import box in Virgin and there was nothing I wanted to buy. I went down the next weekend and the guy behind the counter, who was getting to know me a little as I was in there every Saturday, (usually when they had just opened for business), told me my record had come in. What, it only took a week? Sure I was surprised and maybe a little excited (I was about 15 or 16) and it was still sealed. I know the majority of records come factory sealed these days but when you bought them back then most of the time the seal had been broken already as folk wanted to hear a snippet before parting with their 6 quid because the internet hadn't been invented yet. Neither had hip hop radio, apart from Sir Jonathon Peel of course but he didn't have everything so you had to spin a few before purchase as you could end up missing the freshest slice of wax and it would be another week or maybe even two before you had enough for the next one and, well you get the picture. Times were hard. And my mate who I met every week outside the shop on the High Street never bought a damn thing. Ever. Except for a Simple Minds tape. But I mentioned him before..

i have always wondered if the vocals "Oh Yeah"was created on this track,because to me it sounds older to me than just a '85 recording?My first thoughts way back was that it was from some curtis Mayfield song!!If anybody knows any info about please help me with it!!..I's been on my thoughts for such a long time!!
