Courses for horses, and that's one fine philly shown up top, but, me, I'd rather hear Teddy P. sing "Don't Leave Me This Way" or "Wake Up Everybody" from his Blue Notes days, or those two seduction tracks used in some neon-lit Alan Rudolph film, before TP started believing his press and the love notes and went too sweet and soft. Man, he could shout and whisper and even hum so pretty! Thanks for the reminder. S.I.P., T.

Fantastic! "Exhilirating" it is!!! From right here in Philly, on a beautiful day. Thanks for making my day. You've proved the truth of another great Philadelphia song: "I love music/Any kind of music/Just as long as it's groovin'"

Rab Hines

Wow! This came from waaaaaay out of left field - and is a great review. Adding to my head-shaking is the fact that I was listening to Chic (first time in years) when I dialed in to see what was going on at Jazzwax.

It takes a bold man to say "I just dig good disco"

Bravo Dimitri, and Bravo Marc.

Marco Romano

No need to apologize for loving good disco. I had the good fortune to hear Larry Levan at the Paradise Garage in '85. What he did with Womack & Womack's "Baby, I'm Afraid of You" is still in my head.
