Summer Love
Cat: DFL 003. Rel: 01 Jul 20
Soul
  1. Summer Love (3:55)
  2. Love's Dream (2:54)
Review: The third missive from crate-digging reissue specialists Discs of Fun & Love offers up a new pressing of a suitably obscure and hard-to-find private-press gem, Maggie Epting's sole single as Mandisa, 1981's "Summer Love". The song itself is superb: a wonderfully breezy and sun-kissed slab of dewy-eyed soul that sees Epting deliver an emotive lead vocal over a jazz-funk influenced smooth soul groove and plenty of spacey, intergalactic synthesizer sounds. Over on the flip you'll find original B-side "Love's Dream", a quirky, sax-laden slab of electric jazz that features an even bolder and more ear-catching Epting vocal. It's very good, though the real killer resides on the A-side.

This Is My Year
Cat: DFL 001. Rel: 30 Oct 19
Soul
  1. This Is My Year (2:48)
  2. Keep This In Mind (3:26)
Review: First up on Discs Of Fun & Love - a fresh reissue label launched by London diggers Miche and Frederika - is a fresh 7" pressing of Rochelle Rabouin's sole single: a 1977 45 that has long been a sought-after "side" amongst crossover soul collectors. A-side "This Is My Year" is the one for dancefloor plays, offering as it does a celebratory vocal over what would then have been called a "modern soul" backing track (disco, basically, though the term was used in Northern Soul circles as a catch-all for anything that wasn't old and stomping). Side B's "Keep This In Mind" is a superb slow number smothered in strings and glassy-eyed orchestration that's probably always on rotation at the mythical "Heartbreak Hotel".

Soul
  1. Joy (3:55)
  2. Somehow (Make Way) (4:55)
Review: On Discs Of Fun & Love's fourth release, the crate-digging imprint has dipped its toes into the wonderful world of gospel for the very first time. The songs are taken from Rubenstein "Ruby" McClure's notoriously hard to find sole solo album, "Rubenstein", and their reissue is sadly given extra weight by the recent news that "Mother" McClure passed away in July. A-side "Joy" more than lives up to its' title, offering an uplifting slab of gospel-soul perfection topped off with a sublime lead vocal from McClure. Bandleader Fletcher Washington handles lead vocals on the soulful brilliance of gospel-blues flipside "Somehow (Make a Way)", a track that's every bit as essential as the "A".

I Love You (reissue)
Cat: DFL 002. Rel: 29 Jan 20
Soul
  1. I Love You (4:15)
  2. House Of Fun & Love (3:01)
Review: Discs Of Fun and Love is a London-based label run by Miche and Frederika, who present their sophomore release by Sweet Mixture. A fully licensed and remastered issue of this 'holy grail crossover record' from 1973, "I Love You" is an evocative ballad, followed by "House of Fun and Love" which is good old fashioned soul music the way it was intended. The original is said to be going for exorbitant sums on the second hand market in the last few years. Needless to say, the label is incredibly pleased to re-release this, fully licenced from the owners and remastered by Grammy nominated mastering house the Carvery.

Whoever Said It
Whoever Said It (7") (1 per customer)

Disco/Reediciones
  1. Whoever Said It (part 1) (3:41)
  2. Whoever Said It (part 2) (3:31)
Review: Alonzo Turner's 1978 classic 'Whoever Said It' gets a repress here for all you disco fanatics in the know. There's a familiar vocal (what a falsetto!) and bass hook on part one that was probably sampled a lot over the years, while the second part on the flip is more funked-up and groovy - perfect for DJ use. Turner went on to garner production credits for the likes of Rivage, a funk/soul-quartet from Miami, and for vocalist Norma Lewis (Passion All Stars, Shakatak, Stepsisters) before fading into obscurity. Turner passed away in 1991, aged 38.
