BUDDAH

Aquarian Dream

Phoenix / East 6th Street

The Norman Connors produced Aquarian Dream first appeared in 1976 with their debut album on Buddah, featuring the extremely popular 'Phoenix' along with the club dancer 'East 6th Street'. Both tracks were only released previously on 12" in the UK and quickly became a huge collector's item with the release averaging £50 on Discogs some 38 years later. Now we get the jazzed up disco heat fully remastered for its first official reissue. A-side cut sweeps through jazz-funk tonalities, searing strings and sizzling percussion, filling your veins with its Wood, Brass & Steel style groove. Over on the B-side "East 6th Street" brings popcorn style keys, space sirens and a frisky disco funk briskness to the table, keeping the party moving on and on.

Patrick says: Total jazz-funk, disco bomb here from Norman Connors and Aquarian Dream. Heads down, hands aloft dance floor heat that's been a classic since day one!

Black Ivory

Mainline / Walking Downtown (Saturday Night)

The Patrick Adams managed group Black Ivory scored a number of hits in the mid 70's, and two of their most sought after are here together on one 12". The Paradise Garage and Loft anthem "Mainline", penned by prolific disco producer Leroy Burgess has seen it's fair share of bootlegs but it's available here officially licensed and remastered for the first time since it's original release in 1976. Drop the needle and ride the groove as the outfit lead you through sweeping strings, big breaks and nagging guitar licks, all topped with the classic "Nothing is the same ever since you 'came my baby" refrain. Fans of Ron Hardy may be familiar with the break from the B side cut 'Walking Downtown On Saturday Night' as it feature heavily in his sets from the legendary Music Box in Chicago. As the pianos, guitars and vocals dance over a divine rhythm section, this killer cut creates a demonic, demented response on the dancefloor. Ace!

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: More classic D-I-S-C-O here as Buddah reish a pair of Black Ivory pearlers. Whether you choose the relentless midtempo groove of the A-side or the flute led fist pump of the flip, you're certain to get on down.

Gladys Knight & The Pips

It's A Better Than Good Time / Saved By The Grace Of Your Love

After that killer Gladys Knights & The Pips 12" a couple of months ago, ('Love Is Always On My Mind'/'Bourgie Bourgie') Buddah now treat us to a lush reissue of her most sought-after and in-demand 12" - the Walter Gibbons remix of "It's A Better Than Good Time" backed with the full version of "Saved By The Grace Of Your Love". This is a legendary and super-rare 12" which was only ever issued in Canada and has become something of a holy grail for serious dance music collectors over the years. A decent condition copy will currently set you back £300+ and that's only if you're lucky enough to find one! it's a Gibbons master-class like you know he can.

Melba Moore

Standing Right Here / Make Me Believe In You

Dope deep disco double header alert! Topside is Melba's Philly anthem, the bubbling McFadden and Whitehead penned and produced "Standing Right Here" which put Melba on a more credible path after her early naff hits and remains an underground anthem to this day. Swooning philly strings, lush orchestration and a killer groove make the perfect companions for Melba's mighty pipes. Mint original copies of the U.S. 12" are currently around the £20-30 mark, so this is a steal. Stick with the real deal from the original masters! The flipside has never been released on 12" before. Yes! Melba's stunning version of the Curtis Mayfield penned classic "Make Me Believe In You" (originally done by Patti Jo) finally gets it debut release on 12" single, with its full LP run-time. More uptempo than Patti Jo's version, this is peaking, passion filled disco funk at its finest so don't miss out!

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Essential disco re-ish action here as two of Melba's biggest hitters find their way onto a dope double header. On the A-side we have the swooning Philly vibe of Melba Moore classic "Standing Right Here", while the flip boasts her lesser known but oh so dope version of "Make Me Believe In You". Ace!
