I have been a huge fan of Ian Levine's work ever since I heard "24 Hours a Day" by Barbara pennington. This has to be the finest disco record ever! I have followed Ian's career ever since and it has become a mission to collect all his recordings.
This latest offering, "DISCO 2008" has to be one of Ian's finest musical offerings and is testament to his talent as a songwriter and producer. The fact that he is still working with singers he initially worked with in the 70's & 80's shows how influential he is and how respected he is as a driving force in the disco/dance music scene.
DISCO 2008 is a superb follow up to the successful NORTHERN SOUL 2007. This latest "box of disco gems" contains so many potential dance hits it is very difficult to pick out a favourite! I must say my personal favourites have to be "TRADE HIM IN FOR A NEW MODEL" by HAZELL DEAN & "NO PAIN NO GAIN" by ANGIE GOLD. These are perfect, modern disco stormers.
I also love "RIGHT PLACE WRONG TIME" by DEANNE KEANNE and "DAYS IN NEW YORK" by the wonderful PEARLY GATES.
One thing I have always admired about Ian is his ability to seek out new singers/talent and give them great material to work with.
This release is worth eevry penny, and how often do you get a top quality CD album that is accompanied by a DVD as well!?
