About this item

After the brilliant and kind of Balearic "To Africa / Soul Makossa" Best Records return to the extensive vaults of Italian pop hero Pino Presti to deliver another top class disco 12". This time featuring the hot voice of "Roxy Robinson" and expert percussion of Tullio De Piscopo on three unreleased extended disco songs from his 1977 quality archive. The A-side sets the bar high and gets the vibe groovy, shuffling through syncopated percussion, classic chord progressions and funked up instrumentation on the loungey "You Know Why". Flip it and feel the peak time disco force of "Nice & Easy / Hungry For Love", a classically campy disco burner with the odd reference to "Love To Love You Baby". Finally, "Come On" stomps along with a classic Italo bassline, percolating sequences and lots of live disco instrumentation, eventually transforming into a cosmic fusion of Italo and Blaxploitation.
