Groovy, Sexy And Soulful Part 63 Funky Bounce Edition

The Three Degrees
Just before closing time the dj spins some relaxing soul-disco tunes, while you’re on the couch with your loved one…

The track by Neville Nash is from the compilation 'Boogie breakdown', which will be out by the end of the week:

“South Africa is home to a dizzying variety of musical genres and traditions, including some that look directly to American sounds for inspiration. In the late 70s and early 80s, many of the country’s best young musicians were guided by funk. All over the world, disco was growing harder and more electronic, with new synthesizers entering the market every month. The southern tip of Africa was no exception. Global music industry geo-politics, however, aided by the country’s pariah status and a UN-sanctioned cultural boycott, prevented the vast majority of this music from ever being heard outside the country, nor ever being released.”

The Stylistics were one of the bestselling soul bands from the early to the mid-seventies (just before the disco boom), being successful on both sides of the Atlantic and an inspiration to many acts. For instance, Michael Jackson​ covered their hit single 'People Make The World Go Round' in 1972, Johnny Mathis​ sang their 'I'm Stone In Love Wth You' in 1973, Marvin Gaye​ & Diana Ross​ recorderd 'You Are Everything' and 'Stop, Look, Listen' a year later and Prince made a version of their 'Betcha By Golly, Wow' in 1996.
