When vinyl was the music, this track was a secret weapon of mine. Sister Dimension’s copy was handed down to me and I’ll tell you what – This track at the end of the night when the lights come up will get you a return booking. It’s the ultimate send off into the night for the drunks and still tripping party people. Actually this has to be the last track because nothing can ever be played after it.
This was me every night in my bedroom as a kid. Full flashlight fantasy festivals.
Enjoy an hour of music from the late’20s/early ’30s most of which was recorded in the ’70s. There are quite a few original 78’s in there but when Nelson Riddle recreated the ’20s for The Great Gatsby in 1974 it sounded amazing – not necessarily authentic but clearer and with more dynamics and in stereo! Hellereo! Happy Spring to the right coasters and most of you fly overs. I love this musical vibe in the Springtime. You might too. You may also hate it. Listen and find out.
This track makes me crazy…still. What was this, 1994? That was the golden arc of house music in New York. Thank you Jesus for putting me on the dancefloor through those times. I started listening tothis track again last week and well, it’s still playing. I’m not finished listening to it yet. The arrangement is the thing. It’s like it comes in backwards, then doesn’t arrive but then all of the sudden…THERE IT IZ, Y’ALL ! I think I’ll play it again while I’m writing this.
Roger Sanchez is just…I mean…the King of House Music? At the very least.
I never realized until very recently that in fact I have been in love with him for about thirty years. It’s a difficult situation since we have never met.
This is such a unique and sophisticated mix. I wish I wouldn’t have fallen asleep last night and missed Will at Le Bains. Ooops. Will’s expertise is showing. I’ve recently been re-inspired to walk over to Vinymania and see what music I can find in hopes of being current and relevant. After listening to Will’s Main Course mix, I’m worried. It might be too hard…I think he bought all the good records… Give it a listen – it moves along an interesting path that seems perfectly mature to this over fifty house fan. (Wheeze) “Can you feel it?” – “yeah I feel it right here and also in my lower back and sometimes I get dizzy.” I’m feeling it.
Sing it out loud when you hear all that hate speech and ignunt talkin that have become so commonplace in our troubled country.
Why don’t cha, why don’t cha?
…and yes, this classic contains Disco Glockenspiel. There is nothing better except maybe Disco Chimes.
