Groove Line Records are very proud to announce the release of their first original album CD re-issue as the seminal 1979 Salsoul Records album Disco Madness, a record featuring six innovative remixes of classic Salsoul tracks from pioneering turntablist and re-mixer Walter Gibbons, whose influence on dance music culture has reached further and deeper than most. Featuring Gibbons’ mixes for Loleatta Holloway (Catch Me On The Rebound), First Choice (Let No Man Put Asunder), The Salsoul Orchestra (Magic Bird Of Fire, It’s Good For The Soul) and Double Exposure (Ten Percent, My Love Is Free) Disco Madness has its place in history as the first album release to specifically recognize and champion the DJ and remixer as a creative and influential force in dance music. Five incredible bonus remixes have been added to the original track list for this CD release including Anthony White (Block Party), True Example (As Long As You Love Me), Love Committee (Just As Long As I Got You) and Loleatta Holloway (Hit & Run) with Gibbons’ original 12” mix of Ten Percent by Double Exposure completing the set. The success of Ten Percent, famous in disco and dance music circles as being featured on the first ever commercially released 12” single, was the catalyst for many other labels to commission remixes and comprehensively change listeners’ and dancers’ attitudes as to how music should be represented in a club environment to this day, and underlined the exceptional talents of Gibbons. Groove Line Records cut no corners when making sure that each and every one of our releases has the highest quality performance possible. Newly remastered, featuring the original artwork, iconic photos and comprehensive liner notes by Christian John Wikane, Disco Madness is an essential addition to any serious scholar of the history of Disco and Dance music and the hugely influential role Walter Gibbons played.
