about

It seems like no part of the world has evaded discos' ubiquitous influence, including the Caribbean. The Caribbean in the late '70s and early '80s was a hotbed of musical activity and this compilation focuses on the best disco-influenced tracks from Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, and the Bahamas. All of the tracks here were officially licensed and reissued for the first time ever.

Highlights included on this compilation are: the under-the-radar cosmic disco tune "Got To Have You" by Joanne Wilson, the icy cool synth-trenched "Living On A String" by Wild Fire, and two other classic disco tracks, "Dance With Me" and "Try Making Love." This compilation was compiled and researched by Deano Sounds and includes edits by Al Kent, the Whiskey Barons, and Waxist Selecta.
