High Quality Disco Boogie, baby
Some recent grabs of the Disco kind.
When I saw the Loose Joints 12" for "Is It All Over My Face?" and that it was Mixed by Larry Levan, I HAD to pick it up. I recently watched a documentary on the Paradise Garage (a groundbreaking warehouse party where Larry DJ'ed in the 80's) and what little I had known about Larry was brought a bit more up to speed. And this joint indeed is a heater. A great mix of drums, congas, bass, and spare vocals. A real disco heater.
The Convertion is the B side pictured. I originally thought that better than the A ("Let's Do It"), but I've now switched sides (pun intended).
