Disco Over The Phone

C-Heads Magazine
Booty calls, calls (and cries) for freedom, prank calls, calls for help, nature calls, love calls, you hear all kinds of calls. Pick up & get down!

Ramsey & Company were the group Mainor Ramsey had pieced together to play the Catskills supper club circuit. Their only release being the super charged sexy disco hit ‘Love Call’ backed with super blaxploitation fodder ‘Leg Grease’, release on Mainor’s own label, Ramco. This limited styrene 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.

Enjoy the telephone conversation! Next week a new part of Smooth Sailing.
