The Disco Godfather '79


A very rare and 
sought after album.
Which happens to be 
SUPER TASTY TOO !
Do not be fooled by
the campy movie,
the sound is seriously
fantastic disco-funk.
Enjoy the Cleaned 
vinyl.

Great to see someone else else showing some love for the Disco Godfather!

'Shermanizing-One Way Ticket To Hell' and 'Spaced Out' are my particular favourites - all the music was done by top session musicians and you can really tell, it's just so damned tight and funky - really surprised there has been no reissue or bootleg given the fact copies go for £250 plus.

The film itself is absolutely hilarious, I must have watched it a dozen times over the years - worth it just to see the bare-chested late Rudy Ray Moore as the "DJ" simulating a mix - never mind his one-man crusade against the local drug pushers, predicated entirely on throwing some kung-fu shapes and moralising one liners - a blaxploitation ode to the dangers of PCP - the discofied flipside to the Gil Scot-Heron cautionary tale of 'Angel Dust'.

Excellent choice, Paul!
