Big Supreme - Don't Walk 12"



Easily one of the most beautiful synth songs to come out in the 80's, and on my 'top 10' 80's songs list! A very hard 12" to find just about anywhere, and testament to it being on the Hardest Hists CD series. The extended mix is brilliant, and has all the right tweaks and whistles to make it a timeless 80's classic. Included are the extended version and the edit version for who want to compare, plus a nice flip song in 'My Addiction'. I highly suggest you give Don't Walk a listen, and let me know what you think!



Track 1, Don't Walk (Extended Version)

Track 2, Don't Walk

Track 3, My Addiction

oh, right on - thanks for posting that; I've been looking forever for it. post your top 80's 10 when you get the chance, love to see the list if this made it.

Tell ya what :)
I'll post the rest of them over the next few weeks for you.

btw, notice you like The Mists Of Avalon, great book. Might I suggest "The Skystone" and following books by Jack Whyte. An amazing series about the Artherian legend. Also, Terry Goodkind's "Wizards First Rule" series is a good read :)

salcam said...

Haven't read "The Skystone" but devoured the entire Gookind series...muddling through George RR Martin right now; I highly recommend him but this most recent book is giving me fits.

Thanks for the recommendation - I'll stop by the bookstore tomorrow!

I just wanted to thank you for posting up Don't Walk by Big Supreme.
This is a very rare song and to me it represents the 80's perfectly! You are a Godsend! Thanks!

Hi

I've just downloaded this song after years of searching for it. Frustratingly when i tried to open the file I found it was password protected, do you know the password, please?

Thanks

Password is listed on the link, it's the blog address, have a look again.

Been looking for this song for ages, I have been singing it for years. I had the 7" somewhere. Can't get it from your link though??

Thank you so much for posting this - I've been looking for that song for 20+ years (I didn't know the song name or band and had the lyrics wrong). You've solved a mystery for me!

Thank you so much for this. I love this song and remain mystified as to why it wasn't a massive hit. Does anyone know what happened to Barry Flynn who, I believe, was The Big Supreme? And does anyone have any other Big Supreme material? I think there were another couple of singles.

I have several 12" Vinyl copies of this record. I even preserved some of them in the original order, they are unopened. As a DJ, I love to phase this tune, the echo and delayed beat effect bring back the old NRG days of Houston.

Nano said...

Like John this also reminds me of the Houston days. I was a bit too young for the clubs but that didn't stop me from listening to the radio of some of the live broadcasts. I did go to teen clubs like Carz though :P

Thank you for posting this!!
