Out Of Stock


4.50 13

A massive set of underground club – 2CDs worth of rare disco and boogie put together by Joey Negro and Sean P – with nary a familiar track in the lot! Both Joey and Sean really know their grooves – and they've gone way past conventional club for this package – digging deep for records that were rare even back in the day, most of which were issued on tiny little labels, and received little or no distribution outside their local scenes – making us even more impressed that two blokes from London could come up with such a good set! The style here is joyous, buoyant, and very much in the soulful spirit of the new work coming out on Z Records in recent years – a groove that's often topped by really wonderful vocals, and not just some lyrics cooked up in the studio. 2CD set features 21 titles in all – including a few rare mixes – and titles include "Disco Party" by The Escorts, "Maintain" by Steve Marshall, "Summer Groove" by The Joneses, "Sho Nuff No Funny Stuff Love" by Charles Mann, "Giving My Love" by Janice McClain, "Love To Live" by Moses, "How Can I Tell Her" by Curtis, "Come Down To Earth (David Todd mix)" by Choice 4, "Feel The Reel" by Adrenalin, "Keep Me Dancing" by True Image, "When Your Jones Come Down" by Sugar Bear Johnson, "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons mix)" by Gladys Knight, "Slide Into Your Heart" by Time Spectrum, "Man For My Lady" by Sabatta, and "Can I Take You Home" by Mel Shepperd.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
