Urban Dance - Two and a Half (Two Half, 2 1/2) (1986)

We're not gonna let the death of Megaupload slow us down here at WAX MASK. I'm gonna check out Mediafire for a bit, see how it goes. I'm aware of the problems with MF, but since I don't have a ton of uploads or a zillion readers, I think we'll be ok. I'm slowly getting old links fixed, but I want to make sure I get caught up on new posts (I've got a lot of stellar jams on deck).

Here's the 1986 album from Urban Dance, 2 1/2, or Two and a Half (or "Two Half" as it's listed some places). This is a totally solid record, produced by Harry Hosono. This is on the more "out" end of Idol, similar to Peal Brothers but not as overtly comedic, and more Technopop.

  1. Very cool! I can't say No to albums with Hosono production, so it was great to stumble across another one that I wasn't previously aware of. Thanks for sharing this!
