If Prince and Shalamar two artists who made their recording debuts in the late '70s could be relevant to the urban contemporary scene of 1983 and even cross over to pop-rock/new wave audiences, why not Chic? Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards hoped that Chic could, which is why 1983's Believer finds the group updating its sound with generally appealing, if uneven, results. Using a lot more keyboards and drum machines and favoring a more high-tech production style, Rogers and Edwards sound like they're trying hard to live down their reputation as a late '70s disco act. Urban contemporary considerations are strong, and some of the songs might have reached pop-rock and new wave audiences with the right promotion.

Kid Creole & The Coconuts is one of the hardest working American live touring bands ever, led by the indomitable and never duplicated showman and vocalist extraordinaire, August Darnell. His music has many energetic styles melded together, mainly a mix of Latin American, South American, Caribbean, Trinidadian, Calloway styles and disco/dance music. There are many jazz, big band, and swing era influences as well. 'The Coconuts' are a group of usually 3 female backing vocalists and dancers who complement the live show. This is a great melodic and musical release, full of intense energy and swing.

In 1978, Herbie Mann came out with two very different LPs. The more improvisatory Brazil: Once Again fulfilled his need to record a serious Brazilian jazz-pop album, while Super Mann is a commercial disco effort that finds Patrick Adams doing most of the producing. The two LPs aren't anything alike – while the instrumental Brazil: Once Again makes extensive use of the flutist's jazz chops, Mann doesn't do any improvising on Super Mann. This album isn't about his virtuosity as a soloist – it's all about the beat and the groove. So naturally, Super Mann was trashed in the jazz press by critics who made the mistake of judging it by jazz standards and wouldn't have known a good disco record from a bad one. Judging Super Mann by disco standards, one hears an LP that is uneven and isn't in a class with Chic, Gloria Gaynor, Donna Summer, or Sister Sledge but has its moments. While "Jisco Dazz" and "Rock Freak" are mechanical, stiff, and forgettable, Mann gets into a nice samba/disco groove on "Etagui" and demands attention with a speeded-up version of the haunting "Body Oil" (which he had previously recorded for 1975's Waterbed).

2009 two CD set containing a pair of albums from the Country superstar, originally released on the United Artists and Liberty labels at the height of his worldwide popularity. Though Rogers achieved success at the tail end of the '60s with his band the First Edition, it wasn't until he fully crossed over into the Country market that international fame came calling. Ironically, his move away from the Pop charts actually brought him more success once Country Music began to crossover into the same market he had initially given up on. Contains Kenny's fifth and sixth United Artists albums, from 1978 and 1979. "The Gambler" sold five million copies in the US alone and features the #1 hit title song as well as 'She Believes In Me'. It was also the Country Music Association's 1979 Album Of The Year, while "Kenny" was voted Male Vocalist of 1979.

Produced by Brian Holland, and he's imitating the Ohio Players blatantly, from the album cover on down. But the funk's not nearly as fiery as the Players' (title track), and it comes off as a failed attempt to keep up with trends - ditto for the overproduced disco numbers ("Mystic Woman"). The Tempts are at their best here when they stick with their earlier smooth balladeering (the lovely "Ever Ready Love"); the uptempo "I Just Don't Know How To Let You Go" is also enjoyable but slight. Not surprisingly, this was a commercial catastrophe, failing to even chart as a pop record and falling short of the Top 40 on the R&B chart.

Their last album with Holland-Doizer-Holland at the creative helm, it was apparent that both parties were battling creative fatigue and were exhibiting the appropriate scars at the time. But aside from the then-innovative title song and the jazzy "In and Out of Love," there's nothing much to get excited about. (Note: the CD version contains two extra tracks, one being a lackluster rendition of "Stay in My Lonely Arms" that pales next to the Elgins' original).

Cheap, disposable, often with poor audio quality but with great visuals, flexi discs were vinyl’s poorer cousin in the pre-digital age. Given away with magazines or sent out by advertisers, they were a splashy way of getting your message heard. Pressed onto laminated card or thin, wobbly plastic, these discs extolled the virtues of washing powders, beers, and banks. Specially commissioned tunes took as their unlikely subjects shoe shops, bakers, and even dentists. This book brings together over 150 images of the most remarkable British flexi discs from the 1950s to the early 1990s, chronicling the varied and sometimes bizarre uses of these flimsy records, and the result is a fascinating archive of post-war design and advertising ingenuity.

Although 1979's "I Will Survive" is Gloria Gaynor's most famous recording, it was hardly her first. In 1975, the singer established herself as one of disco's early divas with her debut album Never Can Say Goodbye, which dance club DJs went wild over. With side one of this LP, Gaynor helped to popularize the art of the nonstop dance mix, a concept that was still alive and well when the 21st century arrived 25 years later. There are no breaks between songs on side one; the intoxicating opener "Honey Bee" segues into Gaynor's hit remake of "Never Can Say Goodbye" and that Clifton Davis gem (which had been recorded by the Jackson 5 and Isaac Hayes in the early '70s) segues into a stunning interpretation of the Four Tops' "Reach Out, I'll Be There." Put those three gems together and you have a nonstop 19-minute dance mix that thrilled the club DJs of 1975 to no end. Meanwhile, side two isn't as club-driven; all of the songs are under four minutes, and there are breaks between them. In other words, side two is more typical of R&B LPs from the mid-'70s.

While the outside may have changed the inside is exactly the same. An on point selec-tion of the sound of today and tomorrow, with a solid nod to the past. Future Disco has always managed to weave that line of interesting and party starting and on this album it’s no different. Disco has always been about uniting the dancefloor and Future Disco embody this spirit with a cross selection of sounds and artists. They find plenty of future rising stars with Berlin’s Cinthie, New Zealand’s Flamingo Pier and Paris’s Yuksek all comfortably sitting alongside more established names as Jamie Jones who reworks Teddy Pendergrass, Metro Area’s Darshan Jesrani and the original destroyer of Rock and Roll, Mylo.
