Disco Dynamite!

DSC03441

By rights, this anonymous album (on the notoriously mediocre Stereo Gold Award label) should be dreadful.  It’s a confused and confusing blend of early disco hits ( “The Hustle” , “Fly Robin Fly”)  and Santana-like salsa grooves (“Oye Como Va”, “Dippin’ Wet”) and yet…and yet…somehow these jaded session players sound…possessed. The grooves are stone cold in-the-pocket, the organ and clavinet riffs are smokin’ hot and even the occasional vocals are of an acceptable standard.

We may never know who the performers were, but I salute them!
