Take Me I'm Yours (12")Mary Clark
While being a rare Patrick Adams and Billy Nichols production, Mary Clarks Take me Im Yours has in recent years become one of the most celebrated Disco tracks by contemporary Deejays. This borderline Gospel-Disco Gem has all the elements of a timeless Disco Cut; a driving bass line, powefully arranged strings and horns, but most importantly, a very soulful performance by Mary Clark. Like many of Peter Browns affliate labels, little is known about them or the artists recorded. Originaly released in 1980 on La Shawn, it is rumored to have been no more than 200 records originally pressed, making this one of the most sought 12 inches among collectors. However Leave it to someone like Dimitri from Paris who edited and included Take me im yours on his The Kings Of Disco compilation from 2004 to give this virtualy unknown song a new life and a whole new audience. Even as recently as last year, Mary Clarks song of devotion made its way into a BBC Radio 1s Essential Mix, courtesy of Floating Points, and frankly, theres probably not a bigger audience than that.
