i've got this record: http://www.discogs.com/release/999026 . i guess it's a larry levan bootleg. what is the first track? it goes, "i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving, i'm leaving - today". it's also sampled on this glenn underground record: http://www.discogs.com/release/425 .

i guess i'd like to know what the second italo-sounding song is, too.

That TC Curtis track is an all time classic.

Also check out the cover that Skratch did:

this song got a massive boost when it was on the first Disco Strut bootleg. I finally found a copy of the 12" at Jerry's in Pittsburgh.

I visited friends in pittsburgh late last spring/early summer I think? I came back for a wedding in sept. but didn't have time for record shopping. I loved Jerry's...lots of 80s brit new wave dance type stuff that probably isn't so popular with the locals like Win and Kissing the Pink. I did better with that stuff then with proper club music, but I did pretty good all around. I love the city as well.

i think you might be surprised at what is popular with the locals, especially since most of the records are bought locally. jerry's is such a ridiculous shop, the store i work at just moved into that building, you can actually walk from jerry's into our store now. we take care of the new vinyl, they sell the used. good to hear you love pittsburgh, its quite an underrated place although the nightlife is pretty crappy.
