Still there was a 3-track 12" single released which included the songs "So Much For L. The A-side track made some stir in the Clubs, but not enough to climb the charts. Sadly you disappeared from the music scene in with what was considered the end of the "Disco" era. Was it your own choice or was it because of the times and the labels abandoning you and your "Disco" peers? It was a nightmare. I had signed a five album recording agreement with Pyramid Records and when the fifth album was recorded and released my contract came to an end.
That was I tried like crazy to get another recording deal. I called everyone I knew in the music industry. People who had been all to happy to wine me and dine me and entertain me in wouldn't give me the courtesy of picking up the telephone to speak with me or even return my calls by I tried for about two years to get another recording deal but finally gave up and realized that I would have to re-invent myself if I were going to survive.
What do you think about the sampling of your classic Disco tracks? The words 'timeless' and 'classic' can get over used but in this case I think they apply. They have all had successful 'sampling reincarnations' to my overwhelming delight. I can't put into words how proud it makes me that my recordings have had such an enduring quality and that they are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.
Specially since it all seemed to be considered "trash" back in the late 70s and early 80s? It had to re-surface. I was just a matter of time. I'm glad I'm alive to be seeing it happen. Of course. The tracks with no added horns or strings or vocals or whatever. When working with both Aram Schefrin or Bob Esty we would always create the recordings in the same way. We would build the track layer on top of layer. With each step I would have the engineer make a cassette copy of that day's work for me to take home to study in preparation of the next day's session.
I've saved everything. It's amazing to be able to go back and listen to the evolution of those recordings. It also brings back a lot of pleasant memories! Not just one track but the entire album In the final analysis there is always one or two tracks that you're just a little unhappy with.
And after all this time I wouldn't change a thing! Another favorite would have be the 12" remix of 'Let Them Dance'. The extended break recording engineer Bob Stone created is amazing. A real masterpiece in my opinion. I admit I had very little to contribute except for being able to recognize Bob's genius and let him do whatever he felt like doing. It turned out to be magic in the clubs. It got people rushing to the dance floor. It was trance inducing to say the least.
And, of course, there's the 'Cathedrals' track. It was such a good recording that, at times, I can hardly believe that it is mine. And it was such an easy record to make. Everything just fell into place. So smooooth!
I am so proud of it and its enduring quality. The recognition it's continually receiving is constantly amazing me and is very satisfying. And every time it is sampled it renews interest in the original recording.
And it's almost all 'Cathedrals'. So much so that I am getting a 'performance' rate royalty as opposed to the usual 'sample' rate royalty. And 'Cathedrals' just goes on and on. Disco DJ, record producer and music publisher John 'Jellybean' Benitez has been quoted as saying that he thinks 'Cathedrals' is one of the most influential Disco recordings of the entire decade.
Over the years there have been countless people crediting 'Cathedrals' as changing their lives Cancel Submit. Pricing policy About our prices.
