A Bitch Called Johanna - I'm A Bitch vinyl
I have just purchased a collection of 800 new beat, house, etc., records from my friend Chris Low, old school dj, and guy who loaned me a collection of amazing tapes. This is one of the first ones I have recorded.
According to discogs vocals in this track from 1990 were from Wendy Wild who was a NY 80s downtown fixture and did work with John Sex, though it looks like the Bitch Named Johanna may have been Johanna Jimenez.
Some great early 90s house sounds here, and I'm sure the acapella could be used for a lot of great remixing. I actually like best the Bitch to Bitch on the clean side for the trigger looping of the phrase "I'm a Bitch". Check out her in a vid below from 91 in the legendary Pyramid Club in NY. Looks like there was also a related track done by Johanna Jimenez. And I almost prefer this later 1994 version by Olga.
Also some hilarious Wendy Wild vid here with John Sex.
"Fellas? I don't wanna know what you DO. I wanna know who you ARE!!"
