What A Devine Edit

The fourth instalment of the Creative Use series is something special. Three edits done by a man renowned on the bearded disco scene, not only for his ridiculously good DJ sets, but his tireless digging for new (old) records that no-one else has got, or in most cases heard, here you get three examples of this.

My favourite, sounds a bit like "Benny And The Jets" at the start which could never be a bad thing, and the evolves into a sweet downbeat gospel / soul number.

(AVI) Part 5

Eastbound Expressway first appeared on the 1976 single "Danger Zone", a production by British DJ and producer Ian Levine.

Levine had originally intended the name to be Ian Levine and the Sounds of Summer but then changed it into Eastbound Expressway. Eastbound Expressway was then revived in 1978 when Levine was signing James Wells to AVI. One of the songs, "Never Let Go" was a repetitive funky dance groove. AVI loved the song but loathed Wells' wailing on top of it and asked Levine to take off his voice. "Never Let Go" was then released as an Eastbound Expressway 12" single which became a club hit early 1979, and AVI asked Levine to produce an album for it.

AVI liked the resulting album Levine delivered but they just didn't think it was as funky as "Never Let Go" so the album released under another moniker, credited to Croisette. Levine rushed back into the studio to record another album with a more groove-based sound which was released, credited to Eastbound Expressway, in the summer of 1979. As with many 70s studio projects, no line-up appeared on the cover. The vocals had been sung by Levine's usual crew of session singers in the London Trident Studios.

When Levine began producing Hi-NRG records for Record Shack Records in 1983, he revived the Eastbound Expressway name for the 12"s "Primitive Desire" (1983) - running 13½ minutes - and "Frantic Love" (1984), once again with a faceless group. Both singles were big hits on the Hi-NRG scene, the vocals being provided by three session singers, Norma, Shirley & Dee Lewis and one of Levine's other artists Laura Pallas.

Levine left Record Shack early 1986 and signed with UK label Passion Records where he assembled an actual line-up for Eastbound Expressway, consisting of Karen Freeman, Joycelyn Phillips, and Bonnie Anderson. The trio appeared on three successful 12 inches for the label, most successfully "You're a Beat" (a pun on Eurobeat which the Hi-NRG sound was now being labelled) and also submitted the track "Whiplash" for Levine's own label Nightmare Records, early 1989.

A compilation CD The Best of Eastbound Expressway, comprising all the recordings Levine did under that name, was released by Miami-based Hot Productions, Inc. in 1995.

Are You Like It?

More, More, More" was the signature song of Andrea True, who performed under the name "The Andrea True Connection".

The song was sent to the United States after being recorded in Jamaica; the idea for a single was brought up so True could make profits from a television commercial she was making in Jamaica (an attempted coup in the country hindered the ability for her to get her commercial profits in cash). Buddah Records liked the sound, and originally only released the song to discos in the winter of 1976. The popularity of "More, More, More" was immense. Widespread listener interest convinced Buddah to release the single commercially in the spring. The song rose to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and number five on the UK Singles Chart.

Set aboard the Pacific Princess, a luxury cruise ship which embarked each week on a romantic, sentimental, and often hilarious voyage across tropic seas. Three or four stories told on each telecast were interwoven and often involved the ship's crew, who were seen on the show every week.

Famous movie and TV stars were delighted to accept guest roles on The Love Boat's floating sound stage, combining work with travel to exotic locations. Most of the episodes were filmed on two real cruise ships, the Pacific Princess and the Island Princess, during their regular voyages from the Virgin Islands to Alaska. Paying passengers were invited to participate as extras.

Mother, Father, Sister, Brother

MFSB (short for "Mother, Father, Sister, Brother") were a loose conglomeration of studio musicians who provided backing tracks for dozens of seminal Philadelphia soul recordings in the 70's. They later released successful singles and albuns as a stand-alone recording act.

Assembled by the production team of Gamble & Huff, MFSB was the house band for their Philadelphia International Records label and provided both the signature smooth Philadelphia sound that dominated the early 1970's for the acts who recorded at their Sigma Sound Studios, including The Delfonics, The O'Jays, Blue Magic, The Spinners, Teddy Pendergrass and Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes; and the "high hat" disco sounds that dominated the late 1970's with groups like The Trammps, First Choice, Ripple and Double Exposure.

Groovin' You

One of the best solo records from Harvey Mason -- best known as the drummer on some really monster 70s funky fusion sessions (such as Johnny Hammond's Gears album) -- but a surprisingly well-rounded R&B artist overall! As with Norman Connors, another fusion drummer gone soul star, Harvey's working here in a style that mixes jazz influences with modern soul -- grooving things for a more mainstream audience, but still keeping things real underneath. The record's filled with guest appearances by fusion greats -- like Bob James, David Spinozza, Richard Tee, Lee Ritenour, and others -- and Jim Gilstrap sings vocals on a cut or two.
