Once upon a time a real sassy lady jumped into her pink Cadillac and headed for the freeway. She zoomed into high gear, and to her it just seemed like another night. For Aretha Franklin our fable is no tale. With 24 gold records and 14 Grammies (so far), Aretha is a legend in her own time. Her latest Arista 12", "Another Night", is the third single released from the fantastic "Who's Zoomin' Who?" album. Raul got out his tools and fine tuned it just for us.
Regina is next with "Baby Love," her new 12" on Funkin' Marvellous Records. With it's sweet pop appeal it will be a sure hit with your crowd.
SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 16:18, from 121 BPM to 117 BPM.
Vicki Love starts off this high energy side with "Your Love" from her 4th & Broadway album "Sing, Dance, Rap, Romance." This is another cut from a smashing debut album that has already given us the chart topping hits "Loveride," "Take A Chance," and "Stop Playing On Me." Quite a start for this 20 year old Queens, New York native. The album was produced, written, and arranged by Ron Dean Miller for Forever Dream, Inc. He also mixed the LP cuts with some help from Mark Kamins and Jay Burnett. Raul and Steven have given this cut a nice long intro, a fun break, and a few other surprises to keep your dance floor pumping.
Elizabeth (E.G.) Daily last appeared on Disconet on Volume 7, Program 10 with "Love In The Shadows" which has become quite a cult hit with the early morning crowd. She's back stepping up the tempo to a thriving 163 BPM with her cover of "Sunset People" from her new A & M album "Wild Child." Harold Faltermeyer produced and arranged the cut, and also played keyboards. He recorded and mixed the cut, along with engineer Brian Reeves, at Arco Studios in Munich. Raul and Steven have supplied Disconet with an extended edit we know you're gonna love!
SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 11:01, from 148 BPM to 163 BPM.
