WELL, THE COVER PUTS THE BLIND FAITH ONE INTO PERSPECTIVE....,,
This review is from: The Best Of Disco Demands - A Collection Of Rare 1970S Dance Music - Compiled By Al Kent (Audio CD)
....and there are more in the five cardboard sleeves inside. And, get this, a little mini-poster of it inside with the liner notes on the back of it. Anyway, I have been appreciating a lot of rare disco and have been reassessing the whole thing, listening to it for its funk and soul properties rather than dance music. However, this collection is quite clearly a bunch of re-edits and loop-arounds, made for dancing, that may be rare and unlike anything, but at the same time may have been a contributing factor for disco's ignoble demise. The machine-like quality it creates really, REALLY can take the soul out of disco. Most of these sound closer to `house' rather then disco by the effect it creates along with occasional off-beat.There is little-to-no-vocal performance on these tracks. Oddly, all these tracks are from the 70s but quite frequently the bass sounds like 80s style. I would bet it is dubbed in. I will keep an open mind about this, as the liner notes tell the listener to challenge oneself. Regardless of anything, there is probably nothing else quite like this in the average disco collection. You may even have to be a real connoisseur to actually `get' this....I am not quite sure I do yet...
