GIRLS – MR MAGIC

Mix by Mr Magic. Played on and recorded from London pirate radio station Kiss FM in 1985. Spun by Richie Rich on his 94FM Non-Stop Hip Hop show. Dirty distorted low-quality audio on this one. The addition of spoken samples from Richard Pryor make this a well-produced, rare gem.

Tracklist: Fat Back Band – I found Lovin’, Unity – James Brown & Afrika Bambaataa, Fatback – Girls on my Mind, Dyke & the Blazers – Let a Woman Be a Woman Let a Man Be a Man, The Moments and The Whatnauts – Girls, Whodini – Mr Magics Wand, and other girly related tunes which you’re welcome to ID.

London’s Kiss FM began broadcasting illegally on 94fm in October 1985 and soon Colin Faver played this mind-blowing scratch-mix late evening on 10th October.  Heaps of raw roughness in this beautiful beast. Thanks to Colin Faver for playing the request and the Aero shout out – you are sadly missed…

Use the player’s forward and back buttons to hear and download all three versions.
