|Instant Funk Stars Of Salsoul (Inc. Larry Levan, Tom Moulton, François Kevorkian, Shep Pettibone & John Morales) Limited Vinyl 2LP Set
Philly's Instant Funk are one of Salsoul's most well-known and respected groups. Appearing on the legendary TSOP label in 1976 the outfit was renowned for their ultra-tight musicianship and for backing Disco icon Bunny Sigler as his group. The late 1970's saw them sign to NYC's Salsoul label and this is the point where this compilation comes to life. 'I got my mind made up' was the groups opening shot on Salsoul and was a huge hit for them, helped in part by a super long, stripped back and funked out remix by Paradise Garage jock Larry Levan. This track and a whole host of others feature on this amazing compilation and snapshot of one of Disco's toughest rhythm sections, boasting all their hits and some stellar mixes from Levan, Tom Moulton, John Morales, Francois Kevorkian, Shep Pettibone and more! This whole selection features the mixes in their 12" glory, unedited, end to end, as intended.
A truly essential package for the die-hard Disco aficionado or for those who are exploring this most important movement in dance music for the first time. Curated with the full input and backing of Salsoul Records and carefully selected to reflect the truly timeless nature of the music contained within. For listening, for dancing, for turning on a party!
