I have known about Grace since I was about 13 I guess. Heard "Pull Up To The Bumper", found a 12" single of "I'm Not Perfect But I'm Perfect For You" and sporadically got into her stuff. At 17, 2001, my Mum bought me the Compass Point Sessions which had some songs I really liked at the time, nowadays not too much on it appeals to me as I am totally back into disco. Around 20, I read Jussi Kantonen's and Alan Jones's book "Saturday Night Forever: The Story Of Disco", an excellent book by the way, and found out that before the eighties hits, Grace was an underground disco diva who released three essential disco albums: "Portfolio" (1977), "Fame" (1978) and "Muse" (1979).

When I realised I only owned one "best of Sister Sledge" album, which I had bought at the age of 13 (15 years ago!), I decided that when I saw it for twenty dollars, I just had to get it.

The one hit off this is "Love Don't You Go Through No Changes On Me" which is as glorious a mid seventies soul record if ever there was one. Much of this album was written by renowned soul artist Gwen Guthrie. Other songs that connected with me was the… Read more

"Candles" is simply one of my favourite albums ever. I purchased the cassette at 17 (11 years ago) and it was at a special time for me...I just met someone and was becoming a man...the songs on this album introduced me to Heatwave proper. Sure I knew "Boogie Nights" and "The Groove Line" both of which are great songs. But this album...great, every track is great. "Candles" peaked at No. 29 on the British charts and 74 in the U.S. "Gangsters of the Groove" is a slick Temperton production that has sizzling synth and their trademarks harmonies in full gear. It also became a hit: No.19 in England and No.110 in America. "Jitterbuggin" is the fun stepper that followed it and peaked at 34 on the… Read more
