Newcleus (1984) Jam On It 7″

Very Brief:
Here’s another 7″ single that was donated to the blog by our friend Michael. The electro hit “Jam On It” has been re-issued numerous times in its full-length version. But, rarely have I ever heard the 3:48 radio-friendly single version that was released on this 1984 7″ record. Also included is a 3:45 Instrumental on the b-side.

I was a little disappointed in how poorly the quality of this record held up over the years. The opening grooves on each side of this record have deteriorated over the years so, the beginnings of these tracks are a little on the rough side, I tried to clean the sound as gently as possible but, it is more noticeable than the results I usually get. I’ll be on the lookout for another copy of this record so that I can give this one another go.
