West End's occasional reissue series continues with a timely repress of one of the renowned New York label's standout cuts from the boogie era, Brenda Taylor's dancefloor anthem "You Can't Have Your Cake & Eat It Too". With its strong vocal, killer synth bassline, honky-tonk piano solos and delay-laden drum hits, the original vocal version should be familiar to anyone with a love for early '80s NYC club culture. On this press, the definitive vocal version by David Todd and Nick Martinelli is also joined by their brilliant "Instrumental Cake Mix" - where the dubbiness of the original production can be heard far more clearly - and a slightly different, less celebrated early vocal mix.
