Product Description

CD Description

Disco Discharge is back! The highly acclaimed series returns for its fourth set of releases throughout March, April and May to once again lift the spirits and provide a perfect Disco soundtrack to spring 2012!

As usual the winning combination of ace compiler Mr Pinks is accompanied by expert Disco commentator Alan Jones. A deadly combination with a proven track record!

We kick off with another strong volume of American Disco which once again features 2 CDs worth of difficult to find and in-demand
Disco classics all in their original full-length glory and re-mastered to perfection.

As per usual the enigmatic Mr Pinks aka David Akerman is on compiling duties and he has once again trawled numerous catalogues to
hand-pick those elusive gems which are currently either underground faves or ridiculously expensive collectors items. Thus we have
such gems as the Brothers early Warren Schatz produced classic Are You Ready For This , Herbie Mann s much sought after Superman , Tony Orlando s impossible to find Don t Let Go , Slick s pulsating Sexy Cream , Saturday Night Band s Prelude classic Touch Me On My Hot Spot , Dennis Parker s dreamy New York By Night , Ultimate s Love Is The Ultimate Medley and Sylvester
featuring Patrick Cowley s piece-de-resistance I Need Somebody To Love Tonight .

Mainstream stars are also included with classics from the Ritchie Family, Randy Crawford, Andrea True Connection, Luther Vandross,
Aretha Franklin and Donald Byrd.

Disco Discharge is now the most consistently-selling premier Disco series in the world!

This review is for: Disco Discharge: American Hot
I've bought all 16 of the Disco Discharge releases so far and I see them as an essential collection. This one for me was excellent to finally get Slick's fantastic "Sexy Cream" on CD and also one of my "most wanted on CD" tracks: "A Night In New York" by Elbow Bones & The Racketeers. So, for those 2 tracks alone this was an essential purchase and a real bargain. Another track I was pleased to get also was Claudja Barry "Love For The Sake Of Love" which I only had previously on the American Hot Productions CD "The Best Of Claudja Barry" which was a horrible crackly vinyl rip and to add insult to injury the track was edited by over a minute. Here we get the full version in great sound quality, so I'm grateful for that. What I love about Disco Discharge most is that we don't get many tracks that we already have on lots of other compilations and so there are new surprises. That to me is the art of a good compilation, giving some sought after tracks that have not been avaliable on CD before (or very hard to find) and bringing more obscure tracks to a wider audience. I'm not so keen on seeing standard album tracks by artists like Sylvester which most Disco fans will probably already have, because there are Sylvester tracks that are completely unreleased on CD (such as the UK 12" mix of Sylvester's "Band Of Gold - Clubhouse Mix" or the full length 12" version of Sylvester's "Menergy" which is always truncated in some way on CD). Although album tracks by lesser known artists can be good if there is a standout track where people are unlikely to have bought the original album. Over all, the track selection here is good and represents incredible value for money.

'American Hot' is a further addition to the gradually expanding 'Disco Discharge' series, helmed by Mr Pinks, with liner notes written by Alan Jones, co-author of 'Saturday Night Forever: The Story Of Disco'. The release features the same distinctive artwork and packaging, featuring two cds of un-mixed full length 12" or original album version tracks. The series has been particularly successful for the Harmless Record label and Demon Music imprint, but with this release (part of the fourth series) is this likely to continue?

CD 1 opens with Claudja Barry's 'Love For The Sake Of Love' (1976), a track known widely to modern soul and R&B audiences for the sample lifted for Montell Jordan's 'Get It On Tonite' (taken from the 1999 album of the same name). This is a glorious track, featuring a deep slow groove and swaying strings, apparently featured here in a 'Tom Moulton Mix' - for some musical purveyors a guarantee of quality. 'Are You Ready For This' (1974) by The Brothers (taken from the album 'Are You Ready For This') is an instrumental track that will already be familiar to fans of 'Northern Soul', and has previously featured on the lauded Sony cd series 'The Northern Soul Story'. Randy Crawford takes the pace down with 'Last Night To Danceland' (from 1980's 'Now We May Begin'), a song featuring Jazz inflected keyboards riding over a smoothly delivered groove. The pace moves up gears for Herbie Mann's 'Superman'(1978), a cover that bounces along, replete with female vocal lines that some may call 'classic', others will say 'cheese'. Tony Orlando's 'Don't Let It Go' (1978) features some very interesting production work, mixing strings with a bubbling hypnotic bass, and this demands to be reworked or re-edited by imaginative DJs.

The Disco Discharge imprint is becoming something of an regular point of reference for me. It's kind of a cross between the old Mastercuts series and Ben Liebrand's Grand 12 Inches collections (which it seems, at times to borrow heavily for inspiration). Yet it's all presented at a budget price. Here is the opening salvo in the fourth series. Despite being labelled Disco this is more about the fact that you could go out to Discos through the 70's and 80's and hear a variety of music, this is the ethos and not about being Disco in the eyes of the casual listener.

"American Hot" is a collection described as "Hot American tracks" on its little sticker. It is undoubtedly an interesting selection of tracks some clearly more disco and club orientated than others. This is probably the first time there are tracks which were clearly not aimed at the dancefloor included on the compilation. Here there is probably one of the biggest ever variety of tempos and styles. Where as the others in the series clearly go for Euro sounds (charting developments from euro disco to Italdisco) and the gay HINRG sound the American series have always been somewhat more broad in sounds and styles. Usually it works, but this is probably the most consistently mis-firing selection of the entire series for two key reasons.

Firstly is the actual tracks themselves. Here there are some great tracks and some which just don't work. Sylvester's "I Need Somebody To Love Tonight is probably one of the most underrated tracks in his canon and is a welcome addition as is Donald Bryd's wonderfully anthemic "Love Has Come Around" and August Darnell is crawling throughout the DNA of "A Night In New York" by Elbow Bones with echoes of his early incarnation in Dr Buzzard clearly evident.
