Juice People Unlimited - Disco Godfather (1979)

1. Disco Godfather
2. Shermanizing / One Way Ticket To Hell
3. I Never Wanted To Say Goodbye
4. Spaced Out
This LP is going to have a few of you soundtrack junkies reaching for the phone. "What the hell - that was issued on LP?!" Yup. Rudy Ray Moore's finest disco cash-in moment was immortalised on wax by the obscure Apple Juice label. Wait until you hear who's in the band, too: James 103rd St Band Gadson, Paul Jackson Jr, David Shields... all top session players and true to form, it's tight. If you're looking for out-and-out funk, don't buy this, but if you're looking for quality live disco sounds with a funky feel then check it out. Plenty of groovy voiceovers for the sampler too! Find a copy of the movie and you'll hear almost all of the tracks in their entirety during the they-go-on-too-long dance sequences, and if you're wondering what 'Shermanizing' is, just watch RRM kick some butt!
