Playing tracks by
St. Tropez, Sylvia, Roundtree, Jesse Green , Al Green and more.
The song that marked the beginning of the disco era is most of all ‘Rock your baby’ from George McCrae. Written by the guys from KC & the Sunshine for George’s wife Gwen, but she couldn’t come over to the studio in time. So they passed it over to husband George and the rest is history. The song became a number one smash all over the world. Jesse Green borrowed a little bit of the rhythm from George for his smooth sounding ‘Nice And Slow’. Roundtree was mixed by Tony Bongiovi. Doesn’t that name sound familiar? Yes, he’s the uncle of rock singer Jon Bon Jovi! And yes, I put in the Jazmine Sullivan song after seeing the movie ‘The King’s Speech’… ;-) Ntjam Rosie was a guest on the Gilles Peterson show on BBC Radio 1 last Wednesday.
