Here's a real treat for the ears.
Exactly seven years (minus one day) since the original track was hastily written and recorded - having been picked up by legendary producer Martin Rushent (RIP) who produced a wonderful version which was then heard by Cherry Vanilla herself who (wonderfully) used the track for the launch of her autobiography and in a film of her life - well since that time, the seminal (and purveyor of much Fabulousness) producer, musician and god-like genius that is Man Parrish has been playing the track in the clubs in his native New York, and now has asked to do some remixes!!!
As you can imagine, I was beside myself when he contacted me and here, for your delectation and delight, is the first of what I hope will be a series of remixes.
No download button guys, as these tracks may well be packaged and put for commercial release. It's so hot off the press you might need to wear gloves...
Love to all,
John

Why thank you Mr Kane - and always a pleasure to read your lovely comments. Go check out the other versions of Cherry Vanilla if you get a chance smiley Quite some change. Man Parrish is saying he will hopefully produce some more dance remixes of it!

Thanks for the lovely comments Rte.
I'd love to take credit for it, but I didn't do anything other than write and record the original back in 2007.
This is all the work of the legendary producer/musician Man Parrish (who invented the term Hip Hop back in 1982)!
I've been very lucky since Martin Rushent (producer of Human League, Buzzcocks, Stranglers etc - now sadly deceased) originally produced the track. Man Parrish has been playing it in clubs since then and asked to do some remixes. Hopefully more coming soon smiley

well, by all accounts I am NOT the nicest guy on icomp, but I can dream too, can't I?

I held my breath and pushed play and I was not disappointed, I missed you my brother, and I hope this is a return for you that will stick for a little while.

Well I've been away for quite awhile but I have always enjoyed your Music and this piece is Awesome.
To me it reminds me of great songs created by Frank Zappa and David Bowie. It just has that feel. Hope you have great success with this song and I would appreciate a heads up if it can be purchased or downloaded somewhere. Happy New Year to You and Yours - Now to listen again - Wow! smiley

Just enough "Studio 54," 80's electro, Cult of JHarley, and modern EQ, it can't be anything but POWERHOUSE. This beast is a trip. man. smiley I start envisioning who's going to pluck it for a soundtrack (with NY club play)...thinking "American Hustle" or "Wolf of Wall Street"-ish. Advice to the director: start with a white powder-fueled, hazy, nightclub scene and this track, then make the rest of the movie around it smiley
