Sarr Band - Double Action LP (1979 - 2015) Bootleg LP @320



Originally released in Portugal in 1979 this album was selling for silly money on Discogs until this 2015 Bootleg release. It's not taken from any master tapes but from a Vinyl source so any snap, crackle and pop is from the original vinyl source.

Words Can’t Say Enough/Thunder by 7th Wonder 1978/1980/2010 CD Rip





Funk octet from Tuskegee, Alabama, U.S. 
They released three albums between 1978 - 1980 (the first two at Parachute Records and the third at Chocolate City), although they debuted in 1973 with a cover of Kris Kristofferson's "For The Good Times", at Nashville's label Abet. Their biggest hit was 1980's "I Enjoy Ya" (No.33 in Billboard R'n'B chart).

This is the 2010 Shout! Records release of the First & Third Albums, I would guess that the master tapes for the second album must have been lost or unavailable for this release.

As I always say if you enjoyed the music then please buy the CD's as this is the only way these releases will be available for us to buy.

Cream City by Aalon 1977/1996 CD rip




CREAM

Today we begin a new journey here on Disco Connection.

I will be posting rips from my own personal CD collection, and I am hoping to be doing about one or two a week depending on other commitments. So we should have enough to keep us going for a minimum of the next 10 years.

If you enjoy the CD's I post then please go and buy yourself a copy and keeping supporting the artists.

If you have any requests please put them in the request post please, if I have the CD (must be CD no Vinyl) then I will do my best to post it here.
