RARE DISCO BRAKES FROM BY BOB SHAD'S MAINSTREAM RECORDS IN NEW YORK RELEASED BETWEEN 1974 AND 1976. REISSUED ON VINYL FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE 70S, REMASTERED FOR VINYL WITH LINER NOTES BY CHARLES WARING
In the mid-70s, Bob Shad’s cult New York Jazz label Mainstream Records turned to the burgeoning underground Disco scene and released a handful of great singles produced by the likes of Tommy Stewart, Jimmy Roach or Bert DeCoteaux. Featuring artists from the early Disco hotbed including South Side Coalition, Chocolate Syrup and Three Ounces of Love, these singles, proving Shad's great flair, accompanied the rise of the New York club and block party culture that was going to revolutionise the musical landscape a few years later. Most of the singles are officially reissued here on vinyl for the first time, with Three Ounces of Love's "Disco Man" full mix previously unissued on vinyl. Remastered by Colorsound Studio in Paris, with liner notes by Charles Waring.
