In the beginning disco was the sound of New
York's underground clubs, and only those in the
know understood what was happening. One of
the key figures was Tom Moulton who virtually
invented the extended disco mix. Detroit's
Westbound Records saw that using Tom's skills
could tailor their records to the dancefloor.
"Westbound Disco" pays homage to this era.
This ten-track CD and eight-track double vinyl
album collects the strongest disco mixes to
appear on the label. Five are by Moulton and
others are by Issy Sanchez and Hippie Torales.
Generally only originally available as promo 12"s
or within commercially released albums, they are
fine demonstrations of the skills of the mixers as
well as the talents of the artists.
The music stretches from the extended soul
groove of the Detroit Emeralds' 'Feel The Need',
to the proto electro sounds behind the Clark
Sisters' 'You Brought The Sunshine', and
includes CJ & Co's 'Devil's Gun' - the first record
to be played at the iconic Studio 54 - as well as
obscurities by Eramus Hall and the Crowd
Featuring striking sleeve art based on the range
bags in which some of the 12" singles were
originally housed and complete with in-depth
notes, this is a must-have compilation.
