Recorded at electric lady studios NY produced by Edwin Birdsong released on Philadelphia International records, distributed by CBS. Weighing in at 10:43 this 33 1/3 RPM 12” single came out in 1979 and is a little heard yet explosive example of the Club scene that was rising out of the discothèques.

This disc bore the legend ‘Disco (cue grooved)’ meaning that it was cut to accommodate DJ’s when cueing their records. It’s not a ‘song’ but what it does is give a relentless groove on which to utilise the technical aspects of the club DJ. In that it’s almost a template.

The pace of this obscure record was perfect for a dance floor full of people cutting a rug.

7" version
