Hello... It's Me (3rd Call)

Professor Eddy is your ‘switch board operator'… This cloudcast is a disco-soul-funk extravaganza, based on telephone calls. Booty calls, calls (and cries) for freedom, prank calls, calls for help, you hear all kinds of calls. So enjoy my long distance conversation!

Ramsey & Company were the group Mainor Ramsey had pieced together. Their only release being the super charged sexy disco hit ‘Love Call’ backed with super blaxploitation fodder ‘Leg Grease’, was released on Mainor’s own label, Ramco. This limited 7” single was sold exclusively at the groups live shows and never saw its way into proper distribution. Oddly this limited release eventually found its way onto the dancefloors of the UK’s northern soul/modern soul scene, and became a super smash, ripping up floors whenever played. The sheer quality of this tune mixed with the utter rarity has made this record nearly impossible to find and quite valuable on the collector’s market.

Picture: Elvis Presley, the King of Rock & Roll. He would have turned 80 last week, but he sadly died of a heart attack on the 16th of August 1977.
