Listen: Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ On But The Rent / Gwen Guthrie GwenGuthrieAintNothing.mp3
Anyone who says they don’t love this record is really missing out, maybe even lying.
Having previously made a handful good singles for Island, especially ‘Peanut Butter’, it was this Polydor 7″ that became her crowning moment. She did it all too. Produced, whereby Gwen Guthrie out Roger Troutman’d Roger Troutman. Not easy. And the lyrics – talk about coining every nuance in existence. They’ve never dated, never will.
