Street Scene magazine was a rather short-lived publication, only on the go during mid 1980's.
It was the brainchild of Morgan Khan who was also doing the prominent Street Sounds compilation albums at the time.
The mag contained a mixture of mainstream and underground dancefloor music with some of the contributors being well known names linked to the dance scene - for example Ralph Tee was editor, Ian Levine covered Euro Beat, a young Gilles Peterson had a jazz page, Richard Searling was doing the soul, and so on - but the music styles were quite widespread in general, such as funk, hip hop, pop, reggae, electro and even alternative. All this was accompanied by record reviews, artistes profiles, lots of charts, radio playlists and nightclub updates.
So displaying the kind of charts they printed, the one above is the Import Soul & Funk chart from a March 1986 issue and referring to it I have plucked out a record that was sitting at the No3 position, George Clinton's "Do Fries Go With That Shake", the 7 inch vinyl copy here from my collection at home.
