Disco Discharge: Classic Disco 2LP


Welcome back to Demon's 'Disco Discharge' series, originally issued in a series of 2CD collections between 2009 and 2012. The themed compilations of full length, extended Disco originals, lovingly curated by the mysterious "MrPinks" and with detailed sleeve notes by author and Disco aficionado Alan Jones, have remained in demand among collectors and the club cognoscenti. This time around, the series kicks off with 'Classic Disco' and 'Disco Fever USA'. Doing exactly what it says on the tin, 'Classic Disco' mixes 12 undeniable dancefloor landmarks on 140g orange vinyl, from recognizable names like Change, Manhattan Transfer and Cheryl Lynn, with deeper cuts from exotic names like Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band (an early incarnation of Kid Creole!), The Peter Jacques Band and Double Discovery. And as if to prove a cool Disco track could come from anywhere or anybody, 'Classic Disco' also features an essential re edit by The Glitter Band!
