Vibes, strings, keyboards, and vocals – the heavenly sound of the Salsoul Orchestra, one of the greatest disco outfits of the 70s – and the lynchpin of club classic label Salsoul Records! At the time, the group were ubiquitous on the dancefloor scene – but the amazing thing to our ears is how great these tunes still sound after all these years – still tight, right, and funky at the best places – gliding along with a sound that's classy yet soulful at the same time. The group were the brainchild of Philly soul maestro Vince Montana – who'd cut his teeth in the Sigma Studios scene for years, and stepped out
in the mid 70s with this fully-formed vision of a larger disco orchestra – one that countless others tried to copy, but could never catch the groove
as well as Montana. This massive 3CD package is overflowing with gems by the group – not just their hits, but also lots of rare and unusual mixes, too – the kind of groove
s that maybe made Salsoul Orchestra an even more important act in the 12" single word than the LP market – plus a few unreleased Mike Maurro mixes too.
