About this item

ATTENTION DISCO FANS! The second volume of the Armstrong series is here and it's about to cause a Supermarket Sweep-style dash down the aisles - so you'd best be on your marks. As with the first edition, a bona fide genius from the formative 12" remix era of NYC's Disco explosion opens up his secret vault to give us a pair of disco destroters. Now, we're sworn to strict secrecy over the identity of this legendary jock, but I can tell you he's had a hand in classics from all the disco, soul and funk greats - from MFSB to Grace Jones. These two edits are unavailable anywhere else, even on acetate, so this is a big win for the deep disco collectors. On the A-side, our NYC legend sticks his scalpel into Diana Ross' tempo shifting, tops off, seductive set starter "Love Hangover", letting the groove roll on and on forever while the adlibbed vocals pour through the mix like the sweetest honey - disco bliss! Flip the disc for a little funk excursion into progressive soul territory via Booker T & The MG's amazing "Melting Pot", here expanded, extended and reworked into a hypnotic, break-led masterpiece, which sees each exceptional solo drop in, do its thing and punch out right on time. Super limited and certain to fly - catch it while you can.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: A bona fide disco pioneer opens up his vaults and gives us a pair of full on floor fillers from the sophisticated end of the disco spectrum. Definitive mixes of Diana Ross' 'Love Hangover' and Booker T & The Mgs 'Melting Pot' lie within.
