✨✧ EkoFunky Disco Music ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Funky disco music, and a lot more too – all served up in this rare 70s set by Eko Roosevelt from Cameroon! The leadoff track is a long groover that runs for more than 10 minutes in length – and has that mix of modes that you'd often find in some of the Parisian Afro tracks recorded in the late 70s – but that number's then followed by a number of other tunes that change things up nicely – with some currents of other West African rhythms and instrumentation, all bubbling together in a lively way next to Eko's vocals. One track seems to be trying a bit for a crossover vibe, but the rest are all nice and groovy – and titles include "Funky Disco Music", "Doi Da Manga", "Me To A De Try My Own", "Emen Ango", "Bowaa Mba Ngebe", and "Esele Mba Musango Na Ndol'Am".

✨✧ VariousAfrica Airways 4 – Disco Funk Touchdown 1976 to 1983 (with bonus download) ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
We've had some great trips on Africa Airways in recent years – and this sweet fourth set proves once again that the fun lies in the journey, not the destination! As before, the cuts here share a lot more with American funk than you might think – especially the tight late 70s style with lots of basslines at the bottom, and some warmly jazzy currents in the instrumentation – which often serve to provide a superb setting for the vocals over the top – sometimes just sing-song chorus bits, but merged perfectly with the grooves! Tracks here come from French labels like Fiesta and Sonodisc, and there's definitely some of that criss-crossing between West African and Parisian modes going on – on titles that include "Sun Explosion" by Manu Dibango, "Nassa Nassa" by Uta Bella, "Nimele Bolo" by Charly Kingson, "Africain" by Momo Joseph, "Biram" by Kemayo & K-System, "Soul Magabe" by Pierre Didy Tchakounte, "Funny Saga" by The Monsters, and "Tinini Yanana" by Jake Sollo.

✨✧ Tim MaiaDisco Club ... LP
Atlantic/Mr Bongo (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
Not the throwaway disco you might expect – and instead, an excellent album in the 70s run of Brazilian soul giant Tim Maia – and one that provides a bit of a link to the legacy of his nephew Ed Motta in later years! The album's filled with uptempo tunes – as you'd expect from the title – Tim dropping his heavier funk style of his earliest records, to go for a spirited clubby groove – but one that really brings out some great moments in his vocals – really soaring with notes he never would have hit before! The feel of the record is really pretty darn great – as great as the best American club and disco work of the time – with the added bonus of Tim's great singing, and a few electric funky touches on the best numbers. Titles include "All I Want", "Sossego", "Acenda O Farol", "Jhony", "Murmurio", and "Pais E Filhos". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousJazz Dispensary – Moon Rocks – Extraplanetary Funk, Space Disco, & Galactic Boogie (180 gram pressing) (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Fantasy, Late 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $29.99
A cool collection of funky tracks from the Fantasy Records catalog of the 70s – the kind of hip cuts that were often better than mainstream disco – and which sometimes used a bit of jazz in the instrumentation as well! There's a few spacey themes here, but maybe not as much as you'd guess from the cover and title – but that's OK with us, because we can totally dig these down to earth grooves! Titles include "Let's Get Crackin" by Shock, "I Like It" by Players Association, "Funky Force" by Larry Williams, "Space Is The Place" by Pleasure, "Close Encounters Of A Funky Kind" by Fat Larry's Band, "Space Bass" by Slick, "Messages From The Stars (long wave mix)" by Rah Band, "Do It 4 U" by Starship Connection, and "Sparkle (single edit)" by Fat Larry's Band.

✨✧ VariousBest Of Disco Spectrum – Presented By Joey Negro & Sean P (3LP set) ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $28.99 29.99
A fantastic tribute to the legendary Disco Spectrum series of compilations – a run of records that first burst forth at the end of the 90s, and showed the world that there was a huge amount of underground music to discover from the mainstream disco years! Disco Spectrum cuts aren't the ones you'll know from Saturday Night Fever – or from K-Tel compilations of the time – and instead, they represent the much deeper current of groove that was still burning bright away from the limelight, even while the more commercial disco crumbled into dust – music that was sometimes cut by artists who disappeared quickly, sometimes by older masters, and sometimes by talents who never fully got the respect they deserved. Both Joey Negro and Sean P have given us some great sets before, but this one is right at the top of their talents – filled with gems that include "Let Me Down Easy" by Rare Pleasure, "Spread Love" by Al Hudson & The Soul Partners, "Can't Shake Your Love (Larry Levan 12" mix)" by Syreeta, "Trinidad (special disco mix)" by John Gibbs & US Steel Orchestra, "Isabelle & The Rain" by Jo Boyer, "Don't Let My Rainbow Pass Me By (club 12" mix)" by Cloud One with Margo Williams, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" by Idris Muhammad, "I Don't Want You Back" by Ramona Brooks, "Hot To Trot" by Alfredo De La Fe, "Out Of My Hands" by Omni, "Under The Skin" by The Brothers, "Let Me Love You" by Bunny Mack, "Can You Get Down" by Universe City, and "I Want You For Myself" by George Duke with Lynn Davis.

✨✧ VariousAloha Got Soul – Soul, AOR & Disco In Hawai'I 1979 to 1985 (180 gram pressing – with CD) ... LP
Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet soul from the Hawaii scene of the 70s – a surprisingly strong source of well-crafted, warmly-produced grooves – all with a special sort of sparkle that reminds us a lot of the best Bay Area or LA sounds of the time! There's a sunny vibe to the music that really belies its roots – a blend of jazz, soul, funk, and more – all handled with production that's few notches down from the slicker AOR material of the period, which still lets all the more soulful currents shine through nicely – and which keeps all this stuff from ever sounding too commercial. Given the cultural cross-currents taking place on the islands at the time, there's a surprising mix of backgrounds to some of these groups – which results in a unique sound that's nicely colorblind, and which stands as a bit of a contrast to some of the more defined scenes on the mainland. As always with Strut Records, the track selection and presentation is wonderful – with plenty of notes that illuminate the music – and titles include "Sparkle" by Greenwood, "Get That Happy Feeling" by Lemuria, "Countryside Beauty" by Tender Leaf, "Yesterday's Love" by Aura, "Kawaihae" by Brother Noland, "Feel Like Getting Down" by Nova, "Love One Another" by Mike Lundy, "Coast To Coast" by Rockwell Fukino, and "Call Me" by Hal Bradbury.

Salsoul, 1978. Very Good ... $2.99
Ok, so this one's got a cheesy title – and a very cheesy cover to match – but it's a great collection that features some of the best disco tunes recorded in the early years of the Salsoul label! The set's brimming over with great numbers – and includes "My Love Is Free" by Double Exposure, "The Beat Goes On & On" by Ripple, "Dr Love" by First Choice", "Hit & Run" by Loleatta Holloway, "Dance A Little Bit Closer" by Charo, and "You Should Be Dancing", "Night Fever", and "Stayin Alive" by Salsoul Orchestra.

✨✧ JBs InternationalJam II Disco Fever ... LP
Polydor, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A different groove than usual from The JBs – but still pretty darn nice, and way better than just about all the other funky combos on the market! It's the late 70s, and James Brown's head is a bit addled – he thinks he's the guy who invented disco, and he starts turning his extended funky sound towards the clubs. By this point, Fred and Maceo had left him, so he's working here with a new version of the JBs, one that still includes Jimmy Nolan on guitar and Sinclair Pickney on sax – and although the new band's not the same as the old, they're a surprisingly good funk band nonetheless, and the album's still more of a funk album than you'd guess from the title. In fact, if the record didn't have JBs in the title, most folks would probably thing it was some great lost band! Lots of uptempo funk tracks, similar to those on James' albums from the time – and Martha & The Lazers sing vocals on a few tracks. Titles include "JBs Disco", "Night Train Disco", "A Little Bit Of Disco", and "Soul Of The Disco". LP, Vinyl record album

Black DiscoNight Express ... LP
Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Don't think "disco", think "funky jazz" – because this sweet South African group from the 70s is filled with lots of groovy twists and turns – all in a mode that's quite different than any of the American or European jazz albums we know from the time! The lineup here includes reed heavyweight Basil Coetzee on both flute and tenor sax – working in a quartet with some sublime organ lines from Pops Mohamed – who plays in this snakey sort of way that's a bit like South African jazz piano, but maybe even more flowing and moody. The grooves are sometimes funky, sometimes more modal – but always forward moving in a really great way, but again with a very fresh approach to rhythm! Titles include "Super Natural Love", "Yasmeen's Blues", "Night Express", "Odd's On", and "Echo On The Delay". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnnie TaylorDisco 9000 ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Disco 9000 is Johnnie Taylor's 3rd release for Columbia – a great batch of smooth soul tracks with a lot less of the "disco" that you'd expect from the title! Johnnie produced the session himself – and the album was recorded as a soundtrack (to a film that was later retitled Fass Black), but works well on its own as a straight soul release. Most tracks are relatively long, in that smooth midtempo groove that Johnnie was using at the time – and the combination of his bluesy vocals and modern soul production really makes the set sparkle! Titles include "I Love You Woman", "Right Now", and "I Don't Know What I'd Do Without You". LP, Vinyl record album

Nice little record! Although the album looks like a throwaway album of faceless disco music – it's actually a pretty good batch of strange funky tracks, many with weird little arrangements and strange instrumentation. The highlight is the break classic "Scratchin", which has good hard drums and some very strange horns! Other tracks include the moogy "Trying To Get Over", plus "Window Shopping", "Control Tower", "Jumbo Sam", and "Love Pains".

TrammpsDisco Inferno ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A landmark album from The Trammps – and a record that broke the group firmly out of the Philly ghetto, yet still carried all the best touches of the Sigma scene! Sure, the title track was a super-huge hit – thanks to a plug in Saturday Night Fever – but the record itself is Philly club soaring high, with key arrangements and production from the team of Norman Harris, Ronald Baker, and Earl Young – all of whom provide tremendously mighty grooves to soar the multi-voiced sound of the group well over the top of the clubs! Titles include an 11 minute version of "Disco Inferno", plus "Starvin", "Don't Burn No Bridges", "You Touch My Hot Line", and "I Feel Like I've Been Livin (On The Dark Side Of The Moon)".

✨✧ Boban PetrovicZora ... LP
Discom/Disco Not Disco (Serbia), 1984. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A sweet slice of 80s electro soul from Serbia – a set that's the lasting legacy of Boban Petrovic, an artist who was heavily influenced by funky disco sounds from the west – and maybe a bit of fusion as well! The music has a much more soulful vibe than you'd guess from the cover image – partly because of Boban's strong use of keyboards, and homegrown attempt at AOR production – both of which give the whole thing a quality that's surprisingly warm at times, and which gives the record an instrumental vibe that carries it past the language barrier of the lyrics! Boban sings in this kind of smooth-stepping style on the best cuts – but also leaves lots of room for the keyboards and basslines too – and the best cuts here are the midtempo ones, which seem to be just the right groove for Petrovic. Titles include "Zguzvala Si Snove", "Perlica", "U Ludnici", "Zajedno Srecni", "Pozar U Glavi", and "Mi Smo Uvek Bili Samo Drugovi". LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful set of electronics from a Serbian musician recording in London at the end of the 70s – sounds that have every bit of the spacious vibe you might guess from the image on the cover! The music actually feels more early 70s overall – kind of a mix of instrumental prog, but with touches of fusion – all laid out with a very open sort of vibe – maybe like some of the German groups of the period. Zdenko Radeta put the album together – and the set features lots of keyboards and guitar, plus a bit of sax and some nice heavy drums at times – on titles that include the side-long "Sidarta", plus "Trag", "Vrteska", "Pescani Sat", and "Izmoreni Putnik".

✨✧ GrottoGrotto 2 – Wait No Hurry ... LP
EMI/Odion Livingstone (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $23.99
A wonderfully funky set from this hip Nigerian group of the 70s – a set that's a lot more soulful than their trippy first album – and done with a range of great grooves overall! The instrumentation here is focused on the core talents of the combo – with lots of riffing guitar alongside the drums and bass – used in ways that are a lean, simple take on the modes of bigger Nigerian funk acts of the time – clubby, but not really disco, as there's a pretty sharp edge on most of the tunes! Vocals still take on some of the spacier qualities of the group's debut, but they sound very different here in a funkier setting – and the album also features some nice guest keyboards and funky flute at a few spots too. Titles include "Bad City Girl", "Yeah Runnin", "Freestyle", "Who Gives A Damn", "When Will I Learn", and "Maya". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaOn Jupiter ... LP
Saturn/Art Yard (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Righteous Ra from the end of the 70s – one of the most soulful albums ever by the Sun Ra Arkestra, and a lost treasure that's got some nice funky moments! The vibe here is very much in the Lanquidity/Disco 3000 mode – an extrapolation of styles best known from the Space Is The Place era, tightened up into more of a groove at some points, but also relaxed and more reflective at others. Our favorite track on the set is "UFO", a snapping bit of funk that comes as a real surprise from Sun Ra – and a tune that's got some nicely noisy guitar jamming alongside straighter electric rhythms – all topped off by vocals from the group and some really strong horn work! The tune's a great party funk number that shows the Arkestra at its most joyous – and other tracks include "On Jupiter", which has a great blend of light vocals, spacey moog, and snakey sax – plus the side-long "Seductive Fantasy", a laidback number that unfolds with a really gentle grace.

✨✧ SeaquenceMix Faze ... LP
Aidqueen/High Jazz (Switzerland), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
The cover looks a bit sci-fi, but the music is very down to earth – rare tracks recorded on the San Diego scene at the start of the 80s by a local group with a great ear for a groove! The music's funky, but often has a lot more going on too – some jazzier flourishes in the instrumentation that mark the set as one of those more sophisticated sets that got lost in the underground – grooves by a group who were never going to hit the disco scene, but also more of a soul act than a jazz one too. Singer Tommy Washington leads the group, and there's some mighty nice keyboard and guitar elements in the mix. Titles include "Get Down Party", "Good Better Best", "On The Corner", "T Bone Funk", "Loving", "Life", and "Seaquence". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SkymarkResistance Sonore ... LP
Modern Sun (Netherlands), 2017. New Copy ... $22.99
A fantastic album of keyboard funk instrumentals – a set that starts somewhere in a late 70s soul fusion vibe, then makes a move through some of the more broken, cosmic territory of the European scene in recent years! On some of the straighter tracks, there's Fender Rhodes, at a level that recalls the best work of musicians like Bobby Lyle or Ramsey Lewis during their 70s jazz funk years – while other tracks get a bit more abstract, with complicated rhythms that change things up nicely, while still keeping things in soulful territory. There's a bit of muted vocals at spots – but really layered down in the rhythm section, with a more instrumental vibe to the record overall. Titles include "Warm Day", "Illusion", "Flying Fantasy", "O Alivio Das Ferias", and "Disco Song For My Son". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Silver ConventionSilver Convention (Midland) ... LP
Midland, 1976. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A smash hit from Silver Convention – thanks to the dark pop disco hit "Get Up & Boogie", the leadoff tune on this surprisingly strong set! The strength of the album really comes from the masterful blend of strings, beats, and piano from arranger/producer/keyboardist Silvester Levay – who manages to keep a lot of space in the grooves, and create a sense of darkness in places you wouldn't expect – almost a coldness that predates the European dancefloor sound of the 80s, and warmed up nicely by the trio of ladies singing lead vocals. Titles include "Get Up & Boogie", "Play Me Like A Yo Yo", "No No Joe", "Old Wine In New Bottles", "Thank You Mr DJ", and "You Turned Me On By You Can't Turn Me Off". LP, Vinyl record album

Taking off from the Stones' take on disco from their previous couple of LPs but keeping a nice rough edge on the proceedings, Jagger and Richards turned in what's probably their last great studio LP. 10 tracks in all, including "Undercover Of The Night", "She Was Hot", "Tie You Up (The Pain Of Love)", "Wanna Hold You", "Feel On Baby", 'too Much Blood", "Pretty Beat Up", "All The Way Down" and "It Must Be Hell".

MCA, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
A massive jammer from War – and a record that brought the group to a whole new generation of listeners – as well as a good number of later fans who discovered some of these jams in the club! The groove here isn't disco, but this tightening up of War's sweet jamming vibe – almost given a sort of Mizell Brothers twist here, with a focus on sharper rhythms, but still plenty of space for instrumental flourishes over the top. Tracks are long and open, but in different ways than the early years – and there's some rhythmic elements on the record that really have the group trying out something new – and definitely finding a sweet spot in the process! The whole thing's great – and titles include the great extended instrumental "The Seven Tin Soldiers", plus "Hey Senorita", "Baby Face", "Galaxy", and "Sweet Fighting Lady". LP, Vinyl record album

Starvue have a very solid group soul feel – somewhere in the ensemble funk tradition that emerged from LA at the close of the 70s, but with a sound that was harder and rougher – making for grooves that differ nicely from the usual mainstream set of this nature! The tracks are nice and tight, with sort of a slight jazzy feel, and a good dancefloor groove – and titles include "Upward Bound", "Love Affair", "Body Fusion", "Put The BS Aside", "Starvue", and "Love Struck".

Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
Some of the wildest sounds we've ever heard from Iran – a wealth of wonderful grooves that show that there was plenty happening in that unique scene before the Ayatollah came in and clamped down on Western culture! Styles really intertwine nicely throughout – mixing funk with pop with psych, disco, and even some soundtracky styles that feel a bit Bollywood at points – all coming across with a really cool, groovy, and other-worldly sound that has us loving the whole thing all the way through! The folks at Guerssen have done a great job with the package – adding enough good notes and quality sound to ensure that this one's not just a knockoff – and instead features a great range of well-chosen tracks, put together beautifully. Titles include "Setareh" by Azita, "Aroos Khanom" by Amir Rassaie, "Zandooni" by Farzin, "Bi Vafa" by Kambiz, "Safar" by Hassan Shamaizadeh, "Ey Vatan Iran" by Emad Ram, "Ghebleh" by Nooshafarin, "Gholake Cheshat" by Simin Ghanem, and "Rahgozar" by Morteza.

RCA, 1980. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful gem from Evelyn Champagne King – her third effort with the great producer T Life, who always helped bring out the most soulful elements in King's music! Life's got a way of grooving, but never going for modes that are too easily commercial – still lots of disco and club in the mix, but with more than enough space for Evelyn to really stretch out and be her own woman on the vocals, too! This mix comes out especially well on some of the more midtempo groovers – which have this flourish and polish that's really wonderful – way beyond some of the cliches of King's contemporaries, and with a personal quality that really comes through right away. Some of these cuts include "Your Kind Of Loving" and "Call On Me" – both real standouts on the record – and other numbers include "Let's Get Funky Tonight", "I Need Your Love", "Universal Girl", "Bedroom Eyes", and "Just A Little Bit Of Love".

The main focus here is straight fusion jamming, but there's also a nice undercurrent of funk and soul in the set as well – and Jon Lucien makes an appearance on the track "Almustafa The Beloved" – a great number with a break sampled by Peanut Butter Wolf! George Duke indulges himself a touch on "Space Lady", a spare electric keys number with a lengthy spoken intro – and other titles include "Do What Cha Wanna", "Frankenstein Goes To The Disco", "Hip Pockets", "Ivory Tattoo", "Sweet Wine", and "Juicy".

A great new chapter for Donna Summer – a set that has her working with the legendary Quincy Jones as producer – who gives the whole album a very different sound! There's still plenty of the catchy, bouncy styles you'd know from Summer's late 70s work – but Jones also brings in some jazzy flair from time to time – using elements like keyboards from Greg Phillinganes or tenor from Ernie Watts to create a broader palette of color and sound than some of Donna's disco records. The rhythms change things up nicely too – reaching for a bit more than before – and titles include "Protection", which has a guitar solo from Bruce Springsteen – plus "Livin In America", "Love Is In Control", "State Of Independence", "Lush Life", and "Love Is Just A Breath Away".

The second album by Jim Gilstrap – a singer who did an awful lot of studio work for other folks during the 70s, and who scored a minor hit with his own "Swing Your Daddy", which was on the first album. This set's a bit more far-reaching, with arrangements by Gene Page that are kind of in a Barry White/Van McCoy expanded soul mode, which pushes Jim past the sweet soul of earlier days. Side one features the extended "Love Talk", a 13 minute number with lots of strings and grooves – not disco, but more of the baroque soul of Isaac Hayes or Barry White. Side two features three shorter cuts – two in a similar mode, "Never Stop Loving Me" and "Move Me", plus a great mellow soul remake of Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Like so many of the east coast acts at the start of the disco generation, these guys are a well-trained funk ensemble, playing at a faster clip for the new dancefloor sound – which means that at the core, they've still got some fantastic instrumentation – and a groove that rivals their bigger contemporaries, like Kool & The Gang, Fatback, or BT Express! The drums are fantastic, the basslines nice and subtle, the horns used with some real grace – and there's also some really cool moog solos on the best numbers – which really makes the album a treat. Titles include both disco and vocal versions of their hit "Dreaming A Dream" – plus the tracks "I Am Me", "You Smiled", "Foxy", "I Am Me", "Feeling Tall", "Every Beat Of My Heart", "Na Na Hey Hey", and "Picture Show". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Taste Of HoneyTaste Of Honey ... LP
Capitol, 1978. Very Good ... $5.99
Probably the most successful album the Mizell Brothers ever produced, and a fine set of uptempo groovers from this female soul duet! There's some nice jazzy moments underneath the catchy lyrics, and in a way, the album's style is sort of a blueprint for the sound that would emerge over the next few at Capitol Records, where some incredible albums of modern soul would be recorded. And sure, at one level the group's hit "Boogie Oogie Oogie" is a bit of throwaway pop disco – but there's plenty of other great moments that show the group as a more sophisticated soul outfit, including "This Love Of Ours", "Sky High", and "If We Loved".

✨✧ Beastie BoysHello Nasty (remastered 180 gram edition) ... LP
Grand Royal, 1998. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
The 5th album by the Beastie Boys – and a prime example of a modern classic we didn't appreciate enough the first time time around – the wholly excellent Hello Nasty! We'll admit we were suffering a little Beasties fatigue by the time Hello Nasty came out in '98, but it sounds nothing short of masterful all these years later. Several classic singles that kill live, but sound nearly as great blasting through the headphones, and some of the best album tracks of the Beasties career. Titles include "Super Disco Breakin", "The Move", "Song For The Man", "Just A Test", "Body Movin'", "Intergalactic", "Flowin Prose", "Remote Control", "Three MCs and One DJ", "Song For Junior", "Dr Lee, PhD" feat Lee Scratch Perry, Instant Death and more. 22 tracks in all. The remastered gatefold vinyl version sounds better than ever – with a beautiful foldout gatefold and artwork in full size, as was it always meant to be seen. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeves.)

✨✧ John Davis & The Monster OrchestraMonster Strikes Again ... LP
SAM/Columbia, 1979. Very Good ... $9.99
A smooth bit of pop disco from John Davis – the kind of record we never used to rate properly, but which sounds better and better as the years go by! Of course, part of that has to do with the fact that the album includes the massive cut "Bourgie Bourgie", one of those tunes that gets picked up years later, sampled, and played around – sounding better as a smooth disco revival number than we ever remember it sounding back in the day. The rest of the album's got a similar vibe – soaring instrumental grooving with female chorus vocals (although not by Ashford & Simpson, as on "Bourgie Bourgie"). Titles include "Love Magic", "Holler", "Baby I've Got It", and "That's What I Get". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo, including insert.)

✨✧ Joe SimonGet Down ... LP
Spring, 1975. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Joe's up in New York, working with producer Raeford Gerald in that early 70s "southern goes disco" mode that pushed Joe further up the charts than might have been expected. Joe's vocals still have that strong down-home honesty, but most of the tracks on the album have a mid 70s east coast club groove that's not really disco, but more in that Tyrone Davis/Johnnie Taylor smooth southern modern mode. Titles include "Get Down Get Down", "In My Baby's Arms", "Music In My Bones", "It's Crying Time In Memphis", and "Fire Burning". LP, Vinyl record album
