This song friggin' kills me its so good. This is a Danny Krivit re-edit of a 1975 cover of an O'Jays song (penned by the inexhaustible Gamble & Huff). Who are the Disco Dub Band? I have no clue.
Until recently this song topped my "I heard it at a club but I don't what it's called" list. It took me a few years to figure out what it was. On the bootleg release I have it's simply called Disco Dub. Not to be confused with a disco dump.
This is a great song from Aretha's 1982 album Jump To It. The key ingredient here is the songwriting, production, and back-up vocals of Luther Vandross. The photo above is of Aretha singing at Luther's funeral. Thanks to my friends at Double Headed Disco for turning me on to this record.
This is the LP version from the 1982 Arista release.

Suck My Disco will offer some prime disco tracks for downloading. Seeing as how we are sensitive to artists' livelihoods and copyright kerfuffles, tracks will be available for a limited time. We hope to post things which are 1) out-of-print, and 2) booty-shake inducing. Let us know how we're doing.
