Womack & Womack – Love Wars (1983)

Fantastic record, very big on my “corridor” at the University in Manchester …..

At the time, I was smitten with The Smiths’ first John Peel Session and, in particular, the elemental first outing of “Reel Around The Fountain” with less piano and more bass than the inferior version that made it onto the first Smiths LP proper.

But, despite the allure of Morrissey’s quiff, this record was always there.

Pounding bass that sounds like the blueprint for much of the epoch defining Trax and DJ International material that made up the canon of classic Chicago House two or three years later.

Wonderful vocals and chorus and the sort of clunky drum machine and synth that stretched the technology of the day to its limits. It’s all too easy today and, consequently, so much harder to separate the wheat from the chaff ….

NME track of the year 1984!

The extended 12″ mix.
