4.0 out of 5 stars Disco Treasure, 15 Jan. 2005

This review is from: Jimmy Bo Horne Bst of (Audio CD)
Listening to this album is like a trip down memory lane to the golden days of disco. The classic Spank is archetypical 1970s disco with bubbly rhythms, chanting chicks and gorgeous flourishes of saxophone.
Dance Across The Floor with its propulsive rhythms and extended instrumental break was one of the biggest chart and dancefloor hits but the album includes a number of infectious ditties. You Get Me Hot with its tight bass lines reminds me a bit of Chic, whilst Gimme Some is quite soulful with a catchy riff and playful vocals that stick in the mind.
Another soulful moment, Goin' Home For Love is a beautiful flowing ballad whilst Let Me Be Your Lover is a funky track with prominent female backing vocals. Get Happy is a type of anthem for the disco generation, a buoyant little ditty with an insistent beat and I Get Lifted is indeed an uplifting slice of soulful disco.
There are also the gentle ballads, like Without You and the Bacharach-David song They Long To Be (Close To You). Jimmy Bo Horne may have been a disco phenomenon but this enjoyable album reveals that he made some memorable music that has stood the test of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars If Funky Grooves is your thang this little no. will rock you, 30 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Jimmy Bo Horne Bst of (Audio CD)
Being a fan of funky 70's releases this album definitely came up trumps, with numbers to rock you and make you sway. Rate it up there with Issac Hayes and James Brown, a mix of some tunes you may recognise and others that you'll not forget. Buy it !
