I put together a mix of some of my current disco favourites in hope/celebration of an Indian summer. Its looking good here. The weatherman said it could reach the 80's..
The mix features old tracks, re-edits and new tracks, but it all stays firmly rooted in a funky disco box.
There are a lot of tracks here that come from the work of Al Kent. I have been an admirer and collector for a while now. Check out his blog at: http://www.milliondollardisco.com/
The voice you hear at the beginning is a 1970's Philadelphia DJ called Ramona. I stole it from this YouTube audio recording:
The track by New Ghetto Express is a cover version of the Funkadelic track "Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On".
The Dinosaur track is an Arthur Russell piece, I love his stuff, I play it out whenever I can get away with it. This one has David Byrne freaking out on guitar. I am really into the whole home-made/improv style Arthur Russell has. Genius. If you need to begin your Arthur Russell collection try this: The World Of Arthur Russell.
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the mix.. please let me know if you do, and I will put more up.
Thanks for listening.
