Vintage Vinyl

It's a welcome reissue on 2CD for this lovingly curated collection of full length and 12" versions of Disco classics, originally released as part of the 'Disco Discharge' series in 2010. Disco was always a broad church. As a genre it brought in elements from Motown and Philly, Pop, Latin, African, Musicals, Classical and even Rock. Even so, arguably the longest-lived iteration of Disco came from the Blues-originated 'Boogie' genre. Boogie was a flame that both provided the very basis of the Disco groove and outlasted the genre's staggering late '70s mainstream global takeover. With it's blend of Soul, Jazz, Funk and R&B, and with it's name descending from street slang for (ahem) sweaty lovemaking, Boogie lasted well into the 1980s and beyond. It was Disco in the raw: Boogie was fundamental. Gathering together 20 exemplars of the sound, 'Disco Discharge: Disco Boogie' provides a one stop shop to Boogie heaven, and it features some of the biggest names of the genre, alongside some heinously forgotten classics. Among the eclectic array of artists bringing their Boogie to the party are legends like Average White Band, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Teena Marie and Wilton Felder, as well as diverse one offs from A.O.R.'s Toto (featuring Cheryl Lynn), the UK's experimental new wavers The Quick, and Brazilian multi-instrumentalist and composer, Eumir Deodat. 'Disco Discharge: Disco Boogie' is also released as a 12 track double LP on 140 gram blue vinyl. Both formats come fully annotated with sleeve notes by Alan Jones, coauthor of 'Saturday Night Forever: The Story Of Disco'.
