Johnny D Presents Disco Jamms Vol 1

LP (Item 664871) BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
Deep, deep disco selected by Johnny "D" DeMairo – one of the more pivotal underground club music figures of the past couple decades, via his role in setting up the Henry Street imprint – here putting together an incredible set of the rare disco greatness! This is the expansive, floor-shaking, genre-straddling stuff that inspired the house and clubby soul scenes to come – and it's one of the best compilations of harder-to-find disco that's we've gotten our hands in years. The setlist features a divers mix of famous and lesser-remembered names – with styles ranging from straight forward disco stormers to strains of earlyish electro and 80s grooves – benchmark singles and inventive productions that bridge the eras! Tracks by Cerrone, Kasso, Skyy, The System, The O'Jays and more! 8 representative Disco Jamms that comfortably stretch out over 2LPs: "Spank (Instrumental Remix)" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Key West (Jellybean Edit)" by Kasso, "Dub Till We Drop (Ben Liebrand Mix)" by Lafleur, "Dance Forever (DJ Verison)" by Gaucho, "Dirty Talk (Moplen Edit) Re-Edited by Luca Locatelli, "This Time Baby (LP Version)" by The O'Jays, "Think Fast (Instrumental)" by Pamela Joy, and "It's Passion (Dub)" by The System.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Numero, Early 80s. Sealed
A set that's got one of the more obtuse presentations we've ever seen from Numero – and that's saying a lot, given some of their releases in recent years – but a record that actually takes them back to the kind of rare funk and soul that made us fall in love with the label in the first ...

Night Of The Cookers Vol 1
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good+

The two volume set features tracks recorded live at Club La Marchal in Brooklyn – and have ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nonesuch, Mid 60s. Very Good-
Although most Nonesuch Explorer sessions were ethnographic ones, recorded in the field by the label's engineers – this one's a studio session, recorded in New York by a group that's reputedly from Ghana, but which seems to be kind of a "fake" one from our perspective.
