Two disco killers – together in one single set, with bonus tracks too! First up is Beautiful Bend – a classic album of stripped-down disco grooves – featuring spacey keyboard work from Boris Midney, and lots of heavy congas by Larry Washington! The real focus here is the instrumental work – those long, stretched-out grooves that seemed to be the trademark of the Miami scene in the 70s – especially given the use of percussion here. And although the vocals are mostly of the chorus type, they do a good enough job to emphasize the grooves – and help get the tracks moving forward in all the right ways! Tracks are all quite long – and titles include "Make That Feeling Come Again", "Ah Do It", "That's The Meaning", and "Boogie Motion". CD also features the bonus tracks "That's The Meaning/
Boogie Motion (12" mix)" and "Make That Feeling Come Again/
Ah Do It (12" mix)". Next up is the self-titled RFC album from Caress – a pretty great set done in a top-shelf clubby mode! Keyboards, horns, arrangements, and production are all by Boris Midney – who'd be working here almost as a one-man show, were it not for the added strings and vocals by Kevin Owens and Chequita Jackson. The set features 4 long jams – and includes "Catch The Rhythm", Charmed", You Got It Too Uptight and "Love Spell". CD also features bonus tracks – "Catch The Rhythm (promo only 12" mix)" and "You Got It Too Uptight/
Love Spell (promo only 12" mix)".
