Courtesy of Penetration Inc, for today’s swag booty we have five copies of Billie Ray Martin: The Videos 89-98, a DVD compilation of videos, performances, and interviews from the legendary house music diva.
This DVD compilation comes with artwork and menu design done by Philip Marshall and contain all the Electribe 101 videos including “Inside Out”, “Talking With Myself” and “Tell Me When The Fever Ended”, “You’re Walking”. Next to the Electribe 101 videos the DVD also holds all Billie Ray Martin videos for the album “Deadline For My Memories” as well as both versions of the “Your Loving Arms” video and the longer “Soundfactory edit” version. The DVD also holds approximately ten Electribe 101 and Billie Ray Martin television performances and interviews.
This DVD compilation is unavailable in the United States but may be purchased through Billie Ray Martin’s online store. I have been a rabid fan of Martin’s ever since Electribe 101’s now epic classic Talking With Myself. In 1994 during the height of her global smash Your Loving Arms, I disco-stalked her over three consecutive nights for performances at South Beach’s Paragon, Fort Lauderdale’s Stud, and some club in Palm Beach I can no longer recall. And her collaboration with Chicane on 1999’s brutal breakup song Honey remains one of my fondest clubbing memories from my time in San Francisco. “I always thought I knew the pureness of your love,
everytime you call me honey.”
