Another incredible batch of soulful disco – a set curated by legendary DJs/groove junkies Joey Negro and Sean P! Joey and Sean previously served as the architects of BBE's stellar Disco Spectrum series – and they've brought their A-game over to Z Records from what we can only hope will be another long-living series! The set skews to the obscure numbers – applying the disco tag liberally, really focusing on tight, punchy string-laden soul numbers – mostly from the tail end of the 70s and even spilling into the early 80s for a few numbers! It's that incredible period with Curtom and Stax influenced soul, funky drums and percussion, groovy early fusion, first school hip hop and the deeper dance music of the era melded into pure magic! 23 tracks on 2CDs, featuring a handful of Joey Negro re-edits for consistency! Titles include "Got To Keep On Trying (Joey Negro re-edit)" by Tenderness. "Ebonite (Joey Negro re-edit) " by Disco Fox, "La Sunshine" by Aura, "Changes" by Chain Reaction, "You Got Me Hung Up" by King Tut, "Happy" by Sandi Havens, "Kilimanjaro" by Letta Mbulu, "Manhattan" by Laura Greene, "My Chance To Dance" by Mahogany, "Love Message" by Sargeant & Malone and more!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
