Tom Tom Club/Mr. Yellow – “Genius of Love” b/w “Yella” (12WIP 6735) (1982)

Charming, much-sampled, hook-filled, proto-rap in its long form from Talking Heads offshoot/loose Compass Point studio aggregation, which I’ve been hopin’ to find for some time, turned up cheap this morn at a very crowded Ashford Boot fair. “Yella”, the B-side credited to Mr. Yellow, is a worthy remix of the A and includes toasting to the effect that, “You’ve got to have a strong heart to live in New York…” Which is true enough.

Wouldn’t mind having the “Wordy Rappinghood” twelve and the debut Lp while I’m about it. And maybe the extended version of “Man With the Four Way Hips” from the second album. That’s enough Tom Tom Club.
