    The third installment from boogie/disco aficionado Joey Negro's AMAZING 'Soul Of Disco' series on Zedd Records!

    Showcasing the deeper, funkier end of the disco spectrum where the 4/4 groove collided with the musical sensibility of Philly and Motown. Many of these tracks (on small indie labels) didn't get played outside underground clubs. 

    Musically this collection offers a wide variety of styles within the parameters of soulful disco. The up-tempo heavily orchestrated sounds of the soaring "Invisible Wind" or the J's anthemic northern soul style on "When Did You Stop" are maybe what you'd expect from the title of the album, whereas things get jazzier for the Board Of Directors instrumental "Hanging Tough". A tougher, funked-out sound is present on Evans Pyramid's driving "The Dip Drop" while we go to church for some disco gospel courtesy of Gloster Williams' rousing "No Cross, No Crown". There is even a bit of reggae tinged 4/4 courtesy of Loi's "Body Contact".

    Super obscure stuff - not to be missed!

    Very highly recommended!
