The Groove Line label is doing a superb job reissuing old disco gems. Having previously offered up deluxe, heavyweight vinyl pressings of classics from Donna McGhee and Bumblebee Unlimited, here they turn their attention to a couple of gems from short-lived British soul act Delegation. "Heartache Number 9" is classic disco - a British take on the Philadelphia International sound, if you will, complete with sumptuous strings and dancing horns. It's something of an underrated disco classic, as is flipside "You & I". Released the same year as its' predecessor (1979), "You & I" is an enveloping blast of feelgood soulful disco with a little more baggy sweetness to the guitar-heavy grooves and immersive chords.
