An essential 12″ for disco collectors.

Two versions of Arthur Russell’s cult-classic ‘Is It All Over My Face?’ and a remix by edit expert Kon will be delivered on West End next month. The original version of Russell’s 1980 track, recorded alongside Bob Blank, received a much-needed reissue last year.

Dug out of the West End archives for this 12″ is a 13-minute cut that has never seen the light of day, as well as a Larry Levan female vocal version which was previously only released as promo at the time. Rare as hens teeth.

What’s more, peerless cratedigger Kon presents a modern re-writing of the lot, utilising the track’s original stems and combining male and female vocal versions for the ‘Duet’ mix.

‘Is It All Over My Face? – Kon Edit/Unreleased Original Versions’ is expected on July 20. Pre-order a copy via Phonica Records.
