Ta Mara & The Seen (1985) Everybody Dance GER 12″

Very Brief:
“Everybody Dance” was the first single from Ta Mara & The Seen’s debut self-titled album of 1985. It’s the only single the group placed in the Hot 100. I didn’t buy this 12″ when it was released in 1985 as it doesn’t have any special mixes or edits. All 3 tracks on this 12″ are the versions from the album.  That’s a pity, an extended mix of “Everybody Dance” would have been very nice to have. So, any way, ran across this while record shopping a few years ago, it was in good shape and it’s an import from Germany so, I added it to the stack of records I was buying that day.  There’s been a few inquiries here on the blog why I haven’t posted this 12″.  Well, here’s your answer, all of these tracks are already available on the blog here. But, for posterity’s sake, the 12″ is now available, too! Enjoy!

    Thank you! I loved the debut album from Ta Mara and the Seen. Bought it on cassette back in the day and played it non stop for what seemed like forever!

    It’s too bad their second album didn’t capture the same energy as their debut. Margie was a very talented singer and along with Jesse’s production, I was hoping their second full length release would be huge. Alas that was not to be.

    But regardless I still enjoy listening to the first album along with the rest of the Minneapolis sound.

      Like you, I loved the debut album but, walked away a little disappointed with the follow-up. You’re welcome for the post, enjoy!
