Review: Fresh from the Harlem hotpot, 1980: Harold Sargent's Chain Reaction teamed up with Sound Of New York's founder and producer Peter Brown for a star-lit, horn-baked, organ-licked disco creation that still funks hard 36 years down the line. With its maximal approach, disco bubbles and emphatic gutsy vocals, it could be argued that this funk even harder today due to it ticking every possible disco, boogie and funk box possible.
Review: Queen Constance: Not just the sound of New York but also the sound of rejoicing as a new fully licenced series liberates once acutely rare soul and disco albums from the P&P affiliate label and makes them available legitimately (read: no poorly press bootlegs) at a fraction of the triple figure price some of its cult albums pass hands for. With strong traces of jazz and spirituality ("Love Champ"), delicate ballads ("Destiny") and loose limbed funk ("From Us To You"), there's a reason this one off album from High Fidelity was such a coveted record. This is a moment.
