Departures :: Odette Doiley – Comin’ At You Boy b/w Comin’ At You Boy (Instrumental)

Odette Doiley - Comin' At You Boy
Another addition to the fringe on top of fringe that is New Jack Swing Canadiana. As much as I want to quote verbatim from the description of Odette Doiley on the back of her 1987 private press 12 inch (calling her “a very dedicated singer and performer [who] is all ready to make her contribution to the music industry”), I will instead say that “Comin’ At You Boy” is a bangin’ New Jack chune. With its catchy chorus, classic synth production (by someone named Carl Ottway) and perfectly written bridge, it’s part Come on shake your body baby, do the conga, part entitled high school student, and all Oakwood and Vaughn. The twelve inch is confirmed not raer (or at least not sought-after) so cop while you can and send yourself swanging. Doiley has at least one other single and this very necessary piece of video.
