Product Description

After the huge success of ‘Disco Juice: The Funky Disco Sound of Harlem's P & P Records' in the Spring of 2000, which won plaudits from a host of press, radio and club DJ's worldwide (including the likes of Harvey, Crispin Glover, Norman Jay, Ross Allen and Kenny Dope).

Counterpoint Records have once again enlisted infamous 12" vinyl dealer and dj Nick the Record, to dig deep into the basement of New York's most sought after disco label to unearth yet more lost masterpieces from P & P vast back catalogue. Whereas the first volume had its feet firmly set in the Disco and Jazz-Funk era, volume 2 takes a broader look at the label's diverse take on Black music, such as Florence Miller's northern soul gem,'The Groove I'm In', and Jesse Henderson's awesome modern soul rare groover, ‘I Did It Again', to the early days of Rap, when P & P was competing with Sugarhill and Enjoy for a slice of the Apple. Party joints from the likes of Willie Wood's ‘Woody's Rap' (the rap version to ‘Johnson's Jumpin' from vol.1) and Lavaba & E Mallison's message rap, ‘Game Of Life' to Margo's Kool Out Crew's ultra rare ‘Death Rap'. All bona-fide hip hop classics at block parties all over the 5 boroughs of NYC! The genius of P & P's in-house producer Patrick Adams (who has been hailed as the ‘Phil Spector of Disco') shows his midas touch once again on Cloud One's sublime jazzy 2-step track, ‘Dust To Dust' and the Margo Williams voiced ode to NYC's now defunct community police, ‘The Guardian Angel is Watching Over Us', featuring his trademark moog sounds in full effect. As with ‘volume 1', ‘Disco Juice 2' makes the point that much of this music was very much a street level thing, and was geared primarily towards a marginalised audiance of the urban ghettos. A resolutely funky sound that has lost none of it's urgency, attitude and the classic virtues of the best black music.

You need and i shall stress need to purchase this album...
Why? You like disco? Yes. You like funky tunes? Yes again.
You like underground disco with a difference? why yes again.
If like me you have listened to the convential disco anthems and wish to hear something slightly different and edgier, then a scroll through the kaleidoscope of disco juice 2 is just for you.
Encompassing a more diverse feel than its original, disco officonados will still have plenty to savour with tunes such as the mystical cloud one masterpiece.
I like, you like, everyone's a winner.

Second volume of P&P cult classics 22 Jun. 2002
By Jan Willem Geerinck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wonderful stuff -- the second collection of work from the legendary P&P family of record labels -- with even a better selection of tracks than the first set! The range of styles here moves past the famous disco tunes that have always been the better known titles in the P&P catalog -- and the set includes some fantastic tunes that run from mellow soul to old school hip hop to post punk funk -- all marked with a revolutionary approach to a groove, and an experimentalism that's quite unusual for the time! Titles include "The Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra, "Game On" by Lavaba & E Mallison, "The Groove I'm In" by Florence Miller, "Dust To Dust" by Cloud One, "Roller Rink Funk" by Shift, "Magic Carpet" by High Fidelity, "New York Moving" by Ahzz, "Death Rap" by Margo's Kool Out Crew, "I Did It Again" by Jesse Henderson, and "Willie Rap" by Willie Wood & Willie Wood Crew.
