The Devil's Gun Club

In 1977, two of disco's more solid producer's in Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore, came together to produce C.J. & Co's debut LP Devil's Gun. This classic disco album was mixed by the one and only Tom moulton, and includes standout tracks like "Sure Can't Got To The Moon", "Free To Be Me", and the title track "Devil's Gun". The record was put out by both Atlantic and the more disco/funk focused label Westbound Records, Inc., which used a sketch for the albums artwork rather than the more "James Bond" looking packaging that Atlantic decided to go with. It doesn't really matter what version you have or can find, the music is the same, with a disco sound that tends to push more toward the "Salsoul" soul-disco sound. If your a fan of Double Exposure, First Choice, and/or Love Committee, I highly recommend this release.

Great track, thanks. Thats actually Jane Fonda as Barbarella on the cover though... I wonder how much they had to pay for that?
