COLUMBIA DISCO SERIES

Crusaders' flautist and all round gee, Hubert Laws spent a career doing his thang at the groovier end of the musical spectrum. Early jazz dance moves soon gave way for a funk preoccupation and by 1980 our main man had devoured disco and come up with a post disco, pre boogie club soul classic stacked full of funk. That masterpiece is "Family", a unstoppable groove monster driven by punchy bass, punctuated by blaring brass and topped with a stunning vocal from sister Eloise Laws and of course some flute from Hubert. A favourite of the likes of Sadar Bahar, Mr Scruff and The Beatnuts, you'll be hearing this one a lot come summertime. With original 12" copies of this badboy pushing the £150 mark, it's a much welcomed official, remastered reissue.



STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Serious bassline, catchy vocals, funky funk and boogie. All you need to know about the idea of 'family' is encapsulated in this disco boogie slow paced monster. Brutally essential on any disco heads personal collection.

Samuel Jonathan Johnson

You / My Music

Another gem from the archives gets a much needed official reissue here thanks to Columbia's Disco series. The 12" mix of "You" combines the original funk riffs, string arrangement and joyous piano with a squelchy lead synth to elevate the track to new levels. Anyone who saw that momentous back to back between Ge-Ology and Red Greg at Dekmantel last summer will know the power of this one. “My Music" on the B side is another favourite from the diggers - spiritual soul from Samuel Jonathan Johnson, triple barreled, double header that we think is number one.

Cheryl Lynn

You Saved My Day / Got To Be Real

Disco classic!!! Cheryl Lynn's instantly recognisable 1978 disco hit remains both a cheesy mirrorball anthem and hardcore dancefloor dynamite. Used in loads of films and TV shows ('Carlito's Way', 'Sex & The City' etc.), it's one of those tunes that EVERYONE knows and therefore guarantees dancing action. This edition is the 40-year anniversary release of Cheryl Lynn's much in-demand and rare 12" mix of "You Saved My Day" backed with all-time feel-good anthem "Got To Be Real".
