    try to differentiate between the 8ball string washed post hustle taint slippers and the speedball pre-house razor re-edits. somewhere between Moroder and Tee Scott. also watch out for dudes who can rap for 25 minutes.

  • thumbs up for the prelude/salsoul/larry levan stuff, and dang i know that "got to be real", "dazz", etc are genius pop/soul songs, but really, ENOUGH!!! i hear these and think geez is that the best you could do? the word stale comes to mind...

    gwen guthrie - peanut butter
    first choice - love thang (tee scott mix)

    THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DISCO HEATERS... http://www.disco-disco.com/tributes/larry.shtml

  • There are a couple of big disco dealers on eBay who post soundfiles. That's one way to get some ideas.

    please to show me this club/party in the SF/bay area. i will dance like Haring at the Garage - or just a dude whos happy to hear some "not-98.1-played-out-old-school" good disco tunes.

    That's more like it. And for Cerrone "Give Me Love" is the real dancefloor track IMO.

    i love the vocal side...how can you go wrong with a woman wailing and moaning about how she's feeling feeling feeling feeling so good?

    some current faves:

    crown heights affair "say a prayer for two"
    bohannon "me and the gang"
    edwin birdsong "cola bottle baby"
    jermaine jackson and stevie wonder "let's get serious"

    "Haven't You Heard" is the best Patrice Rushen single

    Do not sleep on "Number One"

    edwin birdsong "cola bottle baby"

    Yes, and the album it comes from has three other dancefloor burners as well:

    Goldmine
    Lollipop
    Phizz Phizz

    These three tracks were also released on 12 inch singles with different, better (IMO) versions. Seek 'em out.

    "Number One" is my shit.

    I've noticed that Brass Construction often gets hated on, but they've got quality tunes on every LP all the way into the early 80s IMO.

    "Tommorow Is Now" is the one I'm feeling at the moment.

    Add "Super Disco" by The Rimshots . I like that midtempo disco stuff.

  • crazypoprockcrazypoprock 1,037 Posts
    haha, yeah, normally i prefer dub versions but in this case i prefer the vocal...how can you go wrong with peter tosh talking about lighting up a spliff in buckingham palace!?

    THE LOVE I LOST

    also there's one delphonics song that has a cool lite-disco feel, really great vocals, i cant remember the name off the top for some reason

    also love the Change song "Angel in my Pocket," real underplayed in my local disco experience.

  • crazypoprockcrazypoprock 1,037 Posts
    wow that's a steal for $6000!

    i mean, it's rare, it's good, but damn.

    I can't hear "Supernature" without thinking of the Benny Hill spoof. Probably just me.

    Twennynine (Lenny White) - Peanut Butter
    Mandre - Freakin's Fine
    Gene Chandler - Get Down
    Prince - Sexy Dancer, Soft and Wet
    Jones Girls - Nights Over Egypt
    A Taste of Honey - Rescue Me
    Kano - Holly Dolly
    Roy Ayers - Freaky Deaky
    Arpeggio - Love and Desire
    Foxy - Hot Number

    I love The Break by Katmandu but that tends to scare people.
