Salsoul heatery (DFR)

So... I had my second gig at this Sydney funk club and afterwards I noticed that two tracks that really went down well on the dancefloor were both on the same label: Salsoul. They were, Instant Funk - I got my mind made up and Loletta Holloway - Love Sensation.Now, I have never been massively into the salsoul sound and so I don't really know stuff on the label that well, but I do like to make my dancefloor happy.So Strutters: plaese to recomend other salsoul dancefloor killers that I must own.

    Their cover of EWF's getaway is pretty tight.



  • gclaudja barry's "dance dance dance" always goes over well.

    Im kinda drawin a blank right now...

  • Candido's "Jingo" or "Thousand Finger Man"
    First Choice's "Let No Man Put Asunder" and "Love Thang"
    Inner Life's "I Like It Like That" and "Moment of my Life"
    Joe Bataan's "Rap-O, Clap-O"
    Love Committee's "Just As Long As I've Got You"
    Double Exposure's "Ten Percent"

    In my opinion, the strongest disco label. The only real duds came during their boogie years.

    I'm not one to talk. I had this album years ago and gave it to another strutter as a freebie

    now I cry

    skyy - here's to you
    aurra - checking you out

    more boogie than disco. solid as a rock.

    not salsoul related, but love hangover has been killing it.

    Leroy Burgess's "Heartbreaker" 12 inch is another essential on Salsoul. Unfortunately, the one's I've been trakking have all gone for approximately $50, which is why you should get the Convertion 12" first. It might even be better, too.

    yo i picked up a bunch of boogie/ disco funk shit last weekend.

    there was a Raphael Cameron "Cameron's In Love" LP on Salsoul which I think is pretty good!

    also found that "Can't Knock the Hustle" sample from some other record I picked up.

    Skyy - "first time around", particularly the Canada-only Larry Levan mix

    If you need copies of the US version, for some reason I just realised I've got like eight of them.

  • Nice 'N Naasty is must.

  • sound on sound.
    double exposure.

    You can't go wrong with this one:




    I've passed this one up at least 2 times in the last year.


    I'm guessing I shouldn't let it happen again

    Raphael Cameron has an LP on the label from '82 which has a real stepper type vibe to it. I'd highly recommend it if I could remember its title

    Weird, I've got a couple Weeks 12s but never seen anything on Salsoul...

    As far as I can tell there's more weak stuff during the disco era, the only doo-doo I can remember from the 80s are some of the disco artists trying to update their sound

    "Go With The Flow" & "Rock Your World" are not on Salsoul.

    Skyy, Instant Funk... was any Salsoul artist that still released product into the 80s still good (other than Inner Life)??

    What's up with this one? Does someone know this LP? Recommended or not?

  • There are only two I could find:
    Loleatta's "Love Sensation" (1980)
    Salsoul Orchestra's "Take some Time Out" (1982)

    I'd say you're right on the money with that assessment.

    I have the one from 1980, but I remember that I didn't like it that much. Maybe the one from 1982 is better. You mean this one right?

    It's pretty lackluster. You'd expect more from those guys. I guess they didn't save any of their best tracks for themselves.

  • erewhonerewhon 1,123 Posts
    Skyy definately put out some killer albums in the 80s that should not be overlooked. Classic brooklyn disco funk.

    Um...
