I had forgotten about this track until I came across a somewhat worn 12″ a few weeks ago. It is a bit of a corkier and introduces the genre of synth led Italo – Disco from a Dutch funkband, formed in 1981. While Berth Tamaëla was the band’s lead singer in Prince falsetto, Silhouette Musmin wrote most of the lyrics and Tamaëla the music. Augmented it seems with a very large band. (I wonder what they all played?)
This is the Ben Liebrand mix with all it’s overdubs and extra drums. In 2 rips, au natural and treated.
“Man On The Run” is a great bit of synthpop, reminding me of Howard Jones. Sequencers and precise drum programming.
