Disco Love, Vol. 3: Even More Rare Disco & Soul Uncovered

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Just when you think that "Al Kent" guy is not going to get you again, he assembles a third Disco Love that is more stimulating than the first two volumes. As with those first two releases, disc one is a mix and disc two presents the tracks from the mix in full. When it was released, in March 2013, some of the inclusions were obscure enough to be absent in certain crate-digger databases. One such selection is "Dancer's Theme," a 1976 A-side led by saxophonist Ronnie April aka Ron Aprea, who can be heard on John Lennon's Walls and Bridges that forms a stylistic bridge between Ronnie Laws' Blue Note and Patrick Adams' P&P output of the same era.

Just when you think that "Al Kent" guy is not going to get you again, he assembles a third Disco Love that is more stimulating than the first two volumes. As with those first two releases, disc one is a mix and disc two presents the tracks from the mix in full. When it was released, in March 2013, some of the inclusions were obscure enough to be absent in certain crate-digger databases. One such selection is "Dancer's Theme," a 1976 A-side led by saxophonist Ronnie April aka Ron Aprea, who can be heard on John Lennon's Walls and Bridges that forms a stylistic bridge between Ronnie Laws' Blue Note and Patrick Adams' P&P output of the same era. Speaking of the giant Adams, he is here as well -- as he is on most disco compilations -- with Sandy's Gang's brilliant "Hungry" arranged by Alice Coltrane associate Arthur Aaron. Once again, the recordings are far from pristine, and the performances are never Chic level, but there are some amazing sounds -- a quantity higher than those of Kent's first two Disco Love compilations. The mixing on disc one, as Kent admits, isn't great since the tracks simply don't flow particularly well. It's a sentiment with which many compilers/DJs can sympathize; after all, the series is more about compiling obscure disco than it is mixing it. Going by Kent's track-by-track notes, at least seven of the 15 tracks received his re-edit treatment. His judgment and doctoring is most astute on the self-titled opener from the Mighty Gents. No one really needs to be informed that "the Mighty Gents are comin'!" well over a dozen times, even if the group ? was produced by the Archies' Ron Dante.
