About this item

Yet another highly in-demand 12" from the Philadelphia International stable and an artist whose records never go out of date! This is a killer double-sided beauty with the frenetic and jazzy "Life On Mars" from his debut 1976 album on the top-side and the mellow all-time classic and soul boy anthem "The Sweetest Pain" from 1979 on the flip. Two very different sides of a great artist, both of which show the level of diversity that he was capable of producing. The last legitimate release of this was back 1999 and a Mint copy will currently set you back circa £50, if you can ever find one. 


Patrick says: CLASSIC ALERT! Take a trip through the cosmos with the spaced out jazz-funk of the A-side, or groove into the moonlight with the sweet tear-jerking soul of the flip. Mega!
