I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

I'll recommend some of the great bands to look into that thrived on disco and disco funk:

Chic (and their productions for Sister Sledge, Sheila & B Devotion, Diana Ross, Norma Jean Wright.. those are all must haves).

Mass Production - definitely the funkiest disco funk band.

Slave - They were more Funk than Disco but a must. Check out their 70's through about '81 material when Steve Arrington was the main vocalist and they had Starleana & Curt who later formed Aurra. Check '80 to '83 Aurra out too it's some really nice stuff like Are You Single and Checking You Out.

Con Funk Shun 70's through '82 I recommend most.

Heatwave - Boogie Nights from '76 obviously a must and The Groove Line from '77.

Fat Larry's Band from the 70's & early 80's... definitely check out the tracks Center City and Lookin' Tonight For Love. Oh yeah and Party After Midnight love that one.

BT Express from the 70's is a good one as well to check out.

For more instrumental disco stuff you can't go wrong with Brass Construction and Crown Heights Affair. Those were two giants of that kinda music in the 70's.

Last but not least, don't forget to check out late 70's early 80's bands like One Way, Starpoint, and Narada Michael Walden. They were all great with the disco sound as well as funk and R&B.

Tommy Stewart - Tommy Stewart (1976)



Quote:
Tommy Stewart is known for his classic super funky disco productions on the Abraxas label. He created some of the scarcest and highly sought after disco records of all time - not the cheesy souless disco of the late 1970s but the raw, funk-tinged good stuff!

This self-titled rare groove album includes the essential party classic "Bump and Hustle Music," which works on any dancefloor anytime - dope bassline and percussion plus a killer vocal irresistible vocal hook. The album also includes lesser known gems like "Riding High," and "The Fulton County Line."

Stewart also produced (with Marlin McNichols and Billy Wright) rare-groove disco records like Spirit Of Atlanta "Burning Of Atlanta", Sil Austin "Disco Music," and Tamiko Jones "Let it flow."
