I'm surprised this classic Rick Rubin produced Go-Go cut was never issued on CD or digitally. Until a proper reissue comes along, here's a quality rip:
The Junkyard Band - Sardines
Ballroom was run by a French fellow of Italian background. I don't want to say his name since he was pretty secretive about doing this for obvisou reasons, but if you were on the record scene in NYC in the '90s/early 2000s you know who I'm talking about. He doesn't live in NYC anymore and isn't involved with pressing records now, to my knowledge. I helped him and his partner with press releases/onesheets and such, later did some re-edit work. Ballroom are almost all straight represses of medium-rare dance classics (this is the promo-only Francois K mix of "Searching"). We also did the Jazz-Funk label, Disco Strut, Disc-O-Lypso and a bunch of one-off reproductions. Some of these repros were so good that they have gotten into discogs and popsike as 'rare originals' or such. I get a kick out of that... Ballroom ended when the guy in charge left NYC, in 2002 I think.
