Let’s drink the old year out and dance the New Year in. Time to hook-up the hookah, rev-up the blender, lace-up the Chuck Taylors, and burn-up the dance floor.
This mix digs a little deeper than the marquee names I put on “Disco Sucks…NOT!!!” I only knew Rufus and Chaka Khan. The others were a delight to discover. Here are the original artists and songs you’ve probably heard covered and sampled any number of times.
The mix also features several strong soul-soaked vocals. Loleatta Holloway* wastes no time in getting “down to the real nitty-gritty” with ‘Love Sensation’. Jackie Moore’s got some grit in her voice as well AND she’s backed by the Memphis Horns. If you ever had any doubts, Karen Young’s ‘Hot Shot’ proves you don’t have to be Black to have Soul.
There's some searing sax on ‘Shame’, LOL lyrics on ‘So Many Men, So Little Time’, and one heckuva good workout for Thumper** on the rest.
* This one's for you.
