Serge Gamesbourg Presents Boston Goes Disco!
Format: LP, Vinyl
Notes: (3Lp + 7″)
Native DJ, producer and bass player Serge Gamesbourg began digging in the crates for forgotten gems more than two decades ago; emerging in 2018 with his frst BBE compilation, lovingly titled Boston Goes Disco! “I wanted to shed light on more obscure & unknown disco & boogie records outta Boston and the surrounding areas, basically small labels and privately pressed late 70s and early 80s dance music from Massachusetts.” He began to track down many an obscure artist to license music for the album, Gamesbourg often found Boston’s legendary Berklee College of Music to be the common denominator for many bands throughout the years. “A lot of these cats came here real young to study from various parts of the country, met the other band members and wrote music and performed locally before finishing their studies and moving on.” The result is a great comp for disco / boogie fans, with the original cuts and also some edits from the man himself. Standouts include Carrie Mimms & Herb Lee ‘ I’m Gonna Get You Meoow’, Cojo ‘Play It By Ear’, Larry Wedgeworth & Clique ‘No More Games’, Second Wind ‘Free For All’ and Wildlife ‘All In Good Time’ Don’t Sleep!
