This ’86 cover by Fred Fowler of the Eddie Kendricks’ classic “Girl, You Need A Change Of Mind“, is one of those records that perfectly reveal the transition from Disco to House Music back in the 80’s. Arranged by disco pioneer Patrick Adams and mixed by fabulous DJ and producer Bruce Forest.

A big favorite. I honestly prefer the later 1988 Bob Clearmountain remix over the original 1986 version. But, the original instrumental version I think is the real deal: where you can hear in full glory the dream team behind this track: Bill Laswell, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tony Williams, L. Shankar, Steve Vai and of course John Lydon.
