|VA / Soul Jazz Records Presents Disco 2: A Further Fine Selection of Independent Disco, Modern Soul and Boogie 1976-80 - Record A Limited Vinyl 2LP Set + Download
· This is a second selection of independent disco records featuring rare and
classic tracks originally released in the USA between the halcyon years of
1977 and 1985.
· This release features only the finest disco, modern soul and boogie and is
compiled by Disco Patrick who last year put together the mighty ‘Disco: An
Encyclopedic Guide To The Cover Art Of Disco Records’ 400+ page deluxe
book for Soul Jazz Records, as well as the first installment of ‘Disco: A Fine
Selection Of Independent Disco, Modern Soul And Boogie.’
· This album is released as a double CD, two separate volumes of double vinyl
(plus free download codes) and a worldwide digital release.
· This album features rare, classic and in demand tracks from the mighty
vaults of labels such as New York’s Salsoul and Miami’s TK Records - which,
during the main disco era, became the main competitors to the major
established record industry - through to killer virtually unknown tracks
released on tiny bespoke one-off labels now impossible to find either in the
history books or record shops of the world.
· Before its mainstream consumption in the late 1970s, disco first emerged
from independent record companies run by lovers of this new sound: Patrick
Adams and Peter Brown, the powerhouse musical partnership based up in
Harlem, New York; Henry Stone at TK, a man with a 30-year old career
distributing black music; or the Cayre brothers at Salsoul, linking Latin roots
with the deep, soulful music emerging from Philadelphia and New York.
· In fact, as we can see on this album, Harlem was to prove a fertile ground
of nascent independent disco with numerous young producers, alongside
leaders of the pack Patrick Adams and Peter Brown, hustling to release oneoff
or a couple of singles on their own independent labels.
· All the music on this album has been sonically and digitally remastered with
love and is presented complete with sleevenotes, original label artwork and
full length extended disco editions.
