About this item

The Philly reissue series continues to serve up nuff bangers this week, turning to the soulful sounds of disco diva Jean Carn, specifically the superb "Was That All It Was". Arguably THE most emotive disco record of all time, this dissection of a break up grabs your feels and squeezes them to the max, wringing you dry while you dance yourself silly. Lasers, bass, brass, strings, sings and a swooning chorus? Tick them all off your checklist, get those hands in the air and feel the magic. Over on the other side Jean keeps her man in check, taking a similar lyrical path to 10cc's "I'm Not In Love" while absolutely nailing the head nodding groove and chest swelling soul of the 70s. Peerless shizzle right here!

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Two of Jean Carn’s biggest hits back to back like the Kappa logo. Totes emosh all round, but I’m gonna have to plump for “Was That All It Was”, one of the top 5 disco records of all time!
