If you're in the mood for some bespoke cover versions of early '80s club standards, Gary Gritness is your man. On the first volume of his Gary G's Custom Shop series - so-called because it's full of customized takes on some of his favourite tracks - you'll find some belting re-imaginings. Check, for example, the radical electrofunk take on Gaz disco-funk classic "Sing Sing" (honestly, it's brilliant) and the pleasingly lo-fi (but still thrillingly loved-up) revision of Dayton's jazz-funk-era classic "The Sound of Music" (and, yes, Gritness has lovingly re-sung all of the ace talk-box parts). His version of Donald Byrd's Paradise Garage favourite "Love Has Come Around" is also superb; while more heavily electronic and mechanical in tone than the original version, it's every bit as glassy-eyed.
