Get Kinky With Me

 Here is another slamming Miami style funk 12" I picked up during the winter holidays while out of town. I wasn't able to find much info on the producer or label, this is likely their only release. There are two copyright years listed, 1983 and 1985. I'm guessing this 12" represents their latest and greatest updated for '85 version. If anyone knows of an earlier mix, perhaps under a different name, please drop a comment.

Disco Special

 I picked this up yesterday from the bins of a record store in North Beach, not the place with the basement but the other one further up the street. I hadn't heard of it, it was without doubt euro disco, but I chanced it on the basis of the cover alone. When I got home I found that side A had a sped up medley of disco hits from that around that year, 1979, a little harsh, but on the flip there was a good cosmic instrumental. What a nice surprise.

 Turns out I'm a little late to the party on this one,  Discothèque's 'Disco Special' was re-issued as part of Morgan Geist's revival triggering Un Classics series in 2005, but it must have slipped by me at the time.
