Val Young - Seduction

I picked up the Chromeo 12" x 2 DJ Kicks comp back in December for 10 euros in Tower. I'd wanted it mainly for this stone cold killer by Carmen, but was chuffed to find plenty of other great stuff on it too. Some serious bassline action in this 1985 hit by Val Young.

Val started out as a background singer in the '70s for people like George Clinton, Roy Ayers & The Gap Band, before being picked up by Rick James who produced her debut LP in 1985; Seduction. There were a few other dacent number on it, most notably..

Though I'm not familiar with her follow up LP from '87, it's not said to be the best.
