A nice selection of songs and tracks that skirt soul/funk, disco, lovers rock, re-edits and deep house. Everything flows well – I have enjoyed listening to this one! My special fave is the Tavares re-edit, which has been cycling though my head while out on runs (always my best indicator of a track to watch!). Same goes for the re-edit of Marshall Hain (their track Dancing In The City), and the E. Live Ft. Chesta Blake track.

Special attention to the Long Island NY band Cross Island, and the brand new 2020 A Certain Ratio record. The Bobby Moore track (Call Me Your) Anything Man has been running through my head all week. The second hour closes with tracks from two Ace 45th Anniversary 7”s. All tracks are aces in this show, no matter what label they are on.

Something I haven’t done in a long time – a disco show (at least, Gulls Window Circus version of a disco show). If you think you hate disco, please listen: there is so much great music hiding under that much-maligned label. The best in that genre has an undeniable magical quality and is absolutely infectious. The Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin, Chuck Mangione and Salsoul Orchestra trio of tracks are must hears, and the Al Kent closer is for-tears.

Electronic show that spends most of the beginning in a vocal disco mode, taking a break to chill with the Jaime Read, then running to the close with instrumental tracks with a disco feel, throwing one last vocal hurrah with NYC’s The Dance.

English disco artist John Schroeder opens this show with his sole release as Hi Voltage Orchestra from 1979 – very nice… US DJ Osmose does a re-edit of James Brown ‘Down And Out In New York City’ on a Smokecloud 12″. There is a 2012 track from Detroit’s Theo Parrish follows. A jazzy MadDisco re-edit. Walter Whisenhunt (promoter for James Brown, discoverer and eventual spouse of Gloria Ann Taylor), collaborates with her on a 70s funk/soul monster. Back to Detroit with Rick Wilhite. Then back to 1981 for Arnies In Love, then forward to 1984 for Pink And Black. That’s just the first hour – explore and enjoy.

1976 disco produced by Tom Moulton by the band Touch starts off this show on good feet. That feeling is continued in the next two tracks, when Floating Points take us in a new broken beat direction. We return on a disco/re-edit track with Riccio, before Ruf Dug gets a bit abstract and Pat Les Stache breaks out the wah-wah petal. The African sound flirted with by Pat Les Stache blooms in Auntie Flo (and several others in part 2), then we get lost deep in the jungle with Jose Manuel in the most pleasing way he does. Listen to part 2 and make your own summary – be assured it fits in exactly with the feel of part 1.
