      Disco 2Soul Jazz Records

      This is a second selection of independent disco records featuring rare and classic tracks originally released in the USA between the halcyon years of 1977 and 1985.

      This release features only the finest disco, modern soul and boogie and is compiled by Disco Patrick who put together for Soul Jazz Records the mighty 'Disco - An Encyclopedic Guide to the Cover Art of Disco Records' 400+ page deluxe book, as well as the first installment of 'Disco - A Fine Selection of Independent Disco, Modern Soul and Boogie.'

      This album is released as a double CD, as well as two separate volumes of double vinyl (plus free download codes) and a worldwide digital release.

      Rare, classic and in-demand tracks from the mighty vaults of labels such as New York's Salsoul and Miami's TK Records - which during the main disco era became the main competitors to the major established record industry - through to killer virtually unknown tracks released on tiny bespoke one-off labels, now impossible to find either in the history books or record shops of the world.

      All the music on this album has been sonically and digitally remastered with love and is presented complete with sleevenotes, original label artwork and full-length extended disco editions.

          Brian McMahonJaguar Ride: Memoir Of An Electric EelHoZac Books

          Paperback: 300 pages. 

          Written by Electric Eels guitarist & founding member, Brian McMahon.

          The electric eels have left a serious scar on the face of music like few other originals have so far, a complex yet primitive pulsation of audio animosity shot through the universe right at the exact moment when nobody could comprehend it. Chicago may be the Midwest hub population-wise, but we all know that Ohio was Punk's true Mesopotamia, and nothing spells that out more succinctly as the Electric Eels.

                      In the 1970s, as disco engulfed America, the question, "Do you wanna dance?" became divisive, even explosive. In this incisive history, Alice Echols reveals the ways in which disco, assumed to be shallow and disposable, permanently transformed popular music, propelling it into new sonic territory and influencing rap, techno and trance. This account probes the complex relationship between disco and the era's major movements: gay liberation, feminism and African American rights.
