La rareza de esta particular rola no reside en su clandestinidad, ya que se trata de un clásico de los años 70, sino en su instrumentación, en su carácter de reliquia. La Guerra de los Dioses (War of the Gods) arrancó en su momento expresiones de asombro, porque su factura tecnológica era de avanzada. Nadie o casi nadie podía explicarse cómo alguien podía hacer música con esos sonidos mitad electrónicos, mitad intestinales.
Söndagssoul a la Philadelhia till kaffet från Billy Paul som dom flesta i Sverige nog associerar med Fritidsresor eftersom dom använde hans version av Your Song. En artist som är så mycket mer än en Elton John cover, även om det är en väldigt bra cover Det en snygg varierad produktion på den här plattan, skickliga musiker och sången är givetvis av toppklass med snygga körarrangemang som iofs känns lite mer 60tal än mitten av 70, så jag gissar att skivan inte sågs som speciellt nyskapande eller framåtsträvande när den kom även om det finns några elektroniska inslag också som säkert sågs som lite mer experimentella.

House was the first direct descendant of disco. In comparison with disco, #HouseMusic was "deeper", "rawer", and more designed to make fools like me dance. 😂 House was created in and by the African-American community. Musically, House music evolved in Chicago and NY from African-American musical traditions like gospel, soul, jazz and funk as well as Latin salsa. Spiritually and aesthetically, it developed in the U.S. out of the need of oppressed people to build a community through 🕺🏾, and later in the UK, out of the need of young people dissatisfied with the meaningless materialism of Thatcher’s England; to build an alternative community of music and dance via #AcidHouse . From a different point of view, House music back home was associated with black people, Latin salsa, with gay clubs — basically with things that White America would not even acknowledge. 🤷🏾♂️
One of the leading DJs at that time was New York born #FrankieKnuckles , also called the Godfather of House. Indeed, he was more than a DJ; he was an architect of sound, who experimented with sounds and thus added a new dimension to the art of mixing. In fact, he took the raw material of the disco he spun and added pre-programmed drum tracks to create a constant 4/4 tempo. He played 8 - 10 hours a night, and the dancers came home exhausted and drenched. 😅 (always a sign of a good time) Thanks to him The Warehouse was regarded as the most atmospheric place in Chicago. (Like @snugharbornc is for #Charlotte ☺️) ___________________________________
The uniqueness of this club lays in a simple mixing of old Philly classics by #HaroldMelvin , #BillyPaul and The O’Jays w/ disco hits like Martin Circus’ " #DiscoCircus " and imported European pop music by synthesiser groups like #Kraftwerk and #Telex . Frankie said, "When we first opened in 1977, I was playing a lot of the East Coast records, the Philly stuff, Salsoul. By ‘80/81, when that stuff was all over with, my focus had to always come back to feeding the dancefloor.” 🕺🏾💃🏽🕺🏾💃
