Crate Digger: Jermaine Jackson + Devo collaborate, Rick James growls on the other side

Jeremy Krinsley

Devo collaborated with Jermaine Jackson in 1982 for this track, “Let Me Tickle Your Fancy.” Apparently, there is a completely different version floating around digitally, but here is the one that appeared on a promotional split 12″ with Rick James' “Hard to Get”. Both tracks scraped the US R&B Billboards at the time.

Rick James, “Hard to Get”

The internet appears to most remember this collaboration for the appearance it resulted in on some Halloween special. Note the finger-synching by Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale on their drum machines and synths. And the the sudden appearance of a guitar by Michael Jackson's brother. (Also not being played?)
