the Men In The Glass Booth Ground breaking re-edits and remixes by the Disco era's most influential DJ's - Compiled by Al Kent
[BBE Disco BBE191CCD]
A triple CD set release with many acetate re-edits and remixes, versions that these DJ legends cut up on reel to reel to make their own re-edit in order to work out their own clubs. These are the versions they played themselves, versions that were not always publicly released but occasionally found their way onto a limited number of acetate copies, as sometimes sold at Downtown Records in New York City.
In this collection of classy Disco tracks you'll hear re-edits and remixes from people like John Luongo, Walter Gibbons, Rick Gianatos, Jay Negron, Jim Burgess, John Morales, Tom Savarese, Bobby "DJ" Guttadaro, Tee Scott, John "Jellybean" Benitez and others...
It's 30 great tracks from the height of the Disco era and it's impossible to mention one track and not another, so I'll not even go there. But it's a pure joy to just let the music play and hearing music from SalSoul Records acts, which are prominently featured within the collection. Another highlight is the full 12:04 Walter Gibbons remix of Glady's Knight & the Pips' "It's A Better Than Good Time", a version which were later re-edited and shortened for a Buddah Records Canadian only 12" release - a record that you have to pay top money to get hold of a copy of...
Besides it comes with a 40-pages booklet with the history and insight on the remixers, versions and things around it. Very interesting read to say the least...
2017 couldn't have started better than this... Hope BBE Disco has more of these kind of releases up their sleeve for the year! Then it will be a fantastic year!

Disco 2: A Fine Selection of Independent Disco, Modern Soul and Boogie 1978-82
[SoulJazz SJR CD311]
This is the second CD release that accompanies the book with the same name (as found below).
The 360-page deluxe 12" x 12" book includes close to 3000 Disco covers, sadly the CD's can't cover it all, but Disco Patrick has once again selected a wonderful set of classic Disco tunes which are not found on your average Disco collection CD's.
19 "new" great tracks taking you on a musical excursion through pure Disco, Funky beats and Intergalactic Cosmic trips.
Just as Dunn Pearson Jr. states in the first CD, DiscoPatrick wants you to "Groove On Down". Just listening at an act like High Frequency (the Aleem brothers together with the voice of Leroy Burgess) kind of give you the essence of the era. Why not "Rock-A-Freak" before taking it down a bit in a "Disco Strut". The Shades Of Love wants you to "Come Inside" before enjoying some "Micro Wave Boogie" or "Cosmic Funk"...
By the time you put on CD 2 Jahneen has already understand that "Everybody's Dancin'. "Get Down Boy" shouts Paper Doll. "I Feel Like Love" when hearing tracks from Ripple and Panache, feels like going on a "Moon Ride" and just "Strut On".
If you wonder "What Can I Do To Make You Dance", I'll just say "Pay The Price" and buy this CD...
Buy both CD's and the Book!

[SoulJazz SJR CD289]
This is the CD that accompany the book with the same name (as seen below).
The 360-page deluxe 12" x 12" book includes close to 3000 Disco covers, sadly the CD can't cover it all, but Disco Patrick has selected a wonderful set of classic Disco tunes which are not found on your average Disco collection CD's.
First out is the Fantastic Aleems feat. Calebur's track "Hooked On Your Love", here in a John Morales remix. (Calebur is actually an alias for singer supreme Leroy Burgess, and even Luther Vandross is to be heard on background vocals.) From that start the great music just keeps coming... From the Miami Disco classic "Superfunk" with it's latin influences, over to "That's Hot", which is exactly just what it called! That one is followed by the always amazingly great 10 minutes "the River Drive" by Jupiter Beyond and Sunburst Band's "the Easton Assassin" - singing about the boxing champ Larry Holmes. The music takes us over to the Caribbean and to "Trinidad", with steel drums and all. Then it's time for a personal favorite; Sparkle's "Disco Madness" before we get more 'Syn Drums' in the more Funky "Sweet Lady" until Wayne Ford closes the first CD with "Dance To The Music Freakout".
The second CD starts out by stating "You Know What I Like" (with uncredited vocals of Leroy Burgess) and that feeling moves through the subsequent tracks... "Movin' To The Beat" is another great track by the Fantastic Aleems and it followed by Something Extra's "Sexy Lady" and then "Get Up (Let's Rock)". Then it's time to get on the "Skateboard" and swirl around to the beats of Chemistry. Cirt Gill has then decided it's time to "Turn This Disco Out", before we get some more modern Soul kind of Disco from 'Sugar Bear' Johnson. Retta Young sings beautifully in "My Man Is On His Way" and the Imperials ties on the roller skates and hit the floor with their "Fast Freddie the Roller Disco King". The Disco Bossa Nova track "Wave" completes the track listing of this great collection of tracks.
The CD really sets the right mood for any Disco lover enjoying the book; Disco: An Encyclopedic Guide to the Cover Art of Disco Records.
