    Lyrics:
    They say it takes a lot to keep a love alive
    In every heart there pumps a different beat
    But if we shift the rhythm into overdrive
    Well, we could generate a lot of heat
    On Fifty Second Street
    Oh oh Fifty Second Street

    We're gonna have a little show parade
    Before they know the second bar was played
    We're gonna slip it to 'em short and sweet on Fifty Second Street

    52nd Street - Somethings Going On.

    4:51

    Widely acknowledged as one of the best jazz songs ever to come out of the UK and now seen as a jazz standard
    (Check out the Will Downing version).
    52nd Street's 'Something's Going On' could of been recorded in the 40s so natural was the production by jazz legend Lenny White and engineering by Alec Head.

    52nd Street started life as a jazz funk band in 1981 and were influenced by the likes of Lenny White, Stanley Clarke, Roy Ayres, Brecker Brothers, George Benson, Chaka Khan, Herbie Hancock and Billie Holliday. The move to Factory Records in 1982 opened doors and enabled the band to incorporate their jazz and funk education with the ever emerging sounds of electronic sequencing and hip hop beats. The band never throughout those years forgot their
    jazz roots and even recorded a jazz song on their debut Virgin/MCA album titled 'Children of the Night'.

    Something's Going On was cut live in New York with an all star guest line-up:
    Michael Brecker on Tenor Sax, Lenny White on Acoustic Drums, Pete Levin on Organ and Orchestral arrangements.

    Thanks to Gwarn Music we have access to priceless photos of those sessions which included Levin, White, Brecker and the band: Bowry Bass, Henry Guitar, Dennison Piano and Charlemagne Lead Vocals.

    Brecker stated in a few interviews in the 80s that his performances on the 52nd Street sessions were some of his most memorable. Michael died recently but his memory lives on.

    God bless
    RIP Michael Brecker. (more) (less)

    52nd Street - Cant Afford To Let You Go

    3:46

    52nd STREET Can't Afford To Let You Go

    52nd Street were a British jazz-funk and R&B band formed in Manchester in late 1980, around the period in which both punk/new wave and jazz-funk rocked the club scene. Throughout the 1980s the group enjoyed success not only in the UK but also on the Billboard chart in the United States. Their biggest and best-known hit single was Tell Me (How It Feels), released in 1985 by the 10 Records subsidiary of Virgin Records in the UK and then months later on in 1986 on MCA Records in the US.

    The original line-up consisted of Tony Henry (guitar), Derrick Johnson (bass), Desmond Isaacs (keyboards), Tony Thompson (drums) and Jennifer McCloud (vocals). Within six months vocalist Rose Williams and saxophonist Eric Godden both came and departed before the line-up settled with John Dennison (keyboards) replacing Desmond Isaacs and Beverley McDonald (lead vocals) replacing Jennifer McCloud.

    52nd Street - Tell Me How It Feels.

    1:56

    OK OK you guys, I know this tune is an old school R&B anthem so chill on the old mail box about Where's the video. Through short sightedness and idiot thinking neither Virgin nor MCA could get their act together to fund an official promo for what has been 52nd Street's biggest ever track. A source from BET (Black Entertainment Television) told me some time ago that this tune was the most requested track on their channel in that period that didn't have a video, so they were powerless and couldn't rotate it. That situation certainly cost the band the US Billboard R&B #1 slot and possible Top 40 Pop placing. Silly! seeing that the band had already had two Billboard hits in 83 and 85. To date 'Tell Me' is one of the most covered/sampled British Soul/R&B tracks ever. Jay Z (Still yet to release his version, I've heard it and it is dope), Melissa Morgan, 3XKrazy (Keep it on the Real), Kaliphz (Wass the Deal) the list goes on. Here's a teaser the full version will follow soon. Enjoy...

    52nd Street - What Did I Do Wrong.

    4:49

    The 80s was a period in which the rock press would castigate soul, funk and R&B acts for being lyrically inept. To be fair they were usually correct with that statement. Hip Hop and Rap was generally the only black music genre outside Jazz and Blues that challenged their own grooves with cutting edge messages. One of 52nd Street's strengths was; their ability to lyrically capture the moment.
    They had a way with dealing with melancholy. Charlemagne had a way of making you both laugh and cry within album tracks -like no one else since probably Gil Scott Heron.
    'What Did I Do Wrong' visualises through the eyes of the child the father's struggle as a recurring single working parent.

    Michael Brecker using an early in-development-stage EWI electronic wind-synth nails Diane's brilliantly executed delivery to the wall with the saddest of solos I've ever heard. Grab some tissues you'll need them.

    If you have the chance, check out 52nd Street's 'Children of the Night', 'Look I've Heard it all before' and 'Something's Going On'.
