Product Description

Born in Harlem, N.Y.C., Adams has contributed to no less than 32 gold and platinum releases, primarily for Salsoul and Prelude Records as well as major labels such as Atlantic. Adams has worked with some of the premier vocalists and musicians in dance music including Sister Sledge, Loleatta Holloway, Jocelyn Brown and Leroy Burgess to name only a very few, as well as bands such as Musique, Logg and Universal Robot Band. His influence is still very strong today in contemporary dance music productions. In 1978 Adams embarked on one of his most critically acclaimed dance music projects which he called PHREEK. The name having been inspired by his musical cohorts, including the legendary Disco writer Vince Aletti, who described Adams music as having a Phreeky quality. Weekend and Have A Good Day, were released on the same 12 single (the only single from the album) with the former being the lead track. Both tracks have become legendary on dance floors across the world since they were released. Weekend is an absolute disco classic, with its funky bass line and beats underneath those crisp hi-hats which then make space for the superbly arranged orchestral chorus that cannot be denied, alongside the intricate percussive interludes that keep you rooted to the floor.

30 years ago in 1978 I remember finding this gem in the local record shop racks, being a poor 15 year old I couldn't afford LPs back then, never did get it. One of those gems that sort of got forgotten over the years, although the track "Weekend" has been re-issued on compilation CDs, I've never seen the original album on CD. The cover picture was impressive on a 12" LP cover too. My dancing feet have long since retired from the dancefloor, but it brings back many happy memeories.

If you're in the slightest bit interested in Patrick Adams and the music he became famous for this is essential.

Not normally a great fan of downloads, but one good thing is it allows obscure albums like this to be made available again where producing CDs wouldn't be commercially viable.

I have many disco hits of 1978;when disco was at it's peak but unaware of "Phreek by Patrick Adams. It sounds great with typical 1978 rhythms which I recognised and fits in perfectly with many similar hits of the time.

Excellent release. 19 Mar 2014
By David G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I owned a version of this cd, but when I saw that BBR had released a re-mastered version with extra tracks I had to get it. It arrived promptly and didn't disappoint. The sound was much improved over the previous version and the 12" remixes were a great plus.
