Notes by Ben Liebrand
CD 4 (Alternative and Pop)


1 Georg Kranz - Trommeltanz (Din Daa Daa) 6:19 (original 12" version)

Finally a master recording of this track so you don't have to listen o that nasty vinyl transfer that has spread over the world on some CD's As a bonus, the Acappeela / Dub version is also included as track 11.

2 Roy Ayers feat. Ubiquity - Running Away 6:56 (original 12" version)

Excellent track which would fit any relaxed house set. Nice continuous groove and vocals that sound totally as if they were meant to work on the dancefloor right now. Great fender rhodes chords sounding totally retro up-to-date. Good stuff!

3 Level 42 - Love Games 7:26 (original 12" version)

Mark King playing the bass like a god. Slap that bass! Saw them perfrom in Cartouche back then. The stage was only a foot and a half high and people where so close to the band members that you could touch the strings of his bass without even having to reach.

4 MaiTai - History 7:19 (original 12" version by Rutger Kroese)

Dutch production by Eric van Tijn and Jochem Fluitsma. This 12 version was made by Rutger Kroese. Rutger, always going his own dourse kind of dissappeared without trace.
If you know where he is....

5 Mantronix - Got To Have Your Love 8:24 (Club mix with bonus beats)

Lightyears ahead of the competition this track still sounds as if it were completed today.

6 Pointer Sisters - Automatic 6:08 (original 12" version)

Although you do encounter this track now and then, it hardly ever is the 12" version. So here it is!

7 Quincy Jones - Ai No Corrida (I-No-Ko-ree-da) 6:16 (original 12" version)

Chas Jankel's original is also great, but here is master-producer Quincy Jones' remake from 1981

8 GQ - Disco Nights 5:15 (original 12" version)

This track appears in many forms and lengths, this one however sounded the most un-processed, un-remixed and authentic.

9 Laid Back - White Horse 5:45 (original 12" version)

The A-side being a sugar sweet reggea track called Sunshine Reggea, it was this B-side why everyone jumped on Laid Back. Totally wacked, crazy out of your skull electronic Disco. A bit noisy it does sound, but perhaps that is one of the nice we-don't-give-a-rat's-derriere things about it

10 Jam & Spoon-Follow Me 12:29 (original 12" version)

By now you should know that this series is not a regular dance classics series. It is the stuff Ben Liebrand is made of and being a DJ for almost 30 years I come across many styles and inflluences, not only very old ones but also some more recent stuff. This is an example of such a track that simply is true inspiration to even the most experienced and wordly DJ's. No conventions here, no standard build-up, no rules, no limits, no boundaries, no worn out sounds, no more-of-the-same, no let's-please-the-A&R-guy, no let's-stick-to-this tempo, no need for continuing drums, with propably "the mother of open trance breaks without drums".
Respect!


11 George Kranz - Din Daa Daa (Acappella / Dub-Version) 3:06


As promised, the acappella/dub mix just as rare as the original and here presented in the best quality that was to be found (including contacting Georg himself) Special thanks to Stefan Trapp :)

Special thanks to:
Hemmy Wapperom for going along on this quest for perfection.

Special thanks for digging up these masters go to:
Frans vd Kamp (NL), Eric Ten Bensel (NL), Roel Spee (NL), Eberhard (Germany), Peter Schouten (NL), Marcel Hergaarden (NL), Frank Rivero (Mexico) , Kees Franken (NL), Hemmy Wapperom (NL), Eri Komozaki (Japan), Yuko Suzuki (Japan), Angelina Arts (NL), Stefan Trapp (Germany), Donovan (NL), DJ Ed (NL), Gerard van Dijk (NL), Marcel Kivits (NL), Gertjan Hugers (NL), Jurgen Korduletsch (U.S.A.), Rob Robles (UK), Darren Salmieri (UK), Jan Willem van der Laan (NL) and the members of Mixfreaks.
So what is missing:

Obviously, Kraftwerk, the absolute fathers of all sequencer based dance music. Unfortunately, there was no way to contact Ralf Hutter (who I once met in a much to noisy club in Germany) other then riding a bike through his hometown and hoping to catch up with him if I saw him by chance. I have been told that even EMI records does not have a proper means of bidirectional communication. Nevertheless, great respect to Kraftwerk (and if anybody knows a way to contact them).

Bobby Orlando was missing on part 1, 2 and 3......but.....
I managed to incorporate no less than 5 Bobby Orlando productions on Grand 12 inches part 4

Telex : Moskow Diskow. Was missing from Grand 12 inches 1,
I succeeded in getting it! It is now available on Grand 12 Inches 2 !!!

Harry Thumann : Underwater. Was missing from Grand 12 inches 1
I found Baby Records, and it is now available on Grand 12 Inches 2 !!!

Even with part 4 finished,
tracks still not available for licensing included Planet Rock. George Duke : Broken Glass and Herb Alpert's 'Rotation' and the track 'Beyond'
Also the tracks by Poussez and the Players Association were not available for licensing at this moment. And not one decent master could be found of Amii Stewarts knock on wood.

Maybe next time....
