A Cosmic Get Down

In 2007, Norway's Prins Thomas put together one of the better mix compilations, entitled Prins Thomas Presents Cosmo Galactic Prism. This double CD consisted of many great rare disco, house, techno, and funk cuts like Zombi's "Sapphire", The Salsoul Invention's "Soul Machine", and Holger Czukay's "Cool In The Pool". This cosmic-grooving compilation also featured one of my favorite music discoveries of 2007, Love On The Run's extended edit of The Paper Dolls' 1977 classic disco gem, "Get Down Boy". Before this compilation release, I had never heard the original, and with a little research I was able to hunt down the original track as well as the instrumental mix, which sounds very close to the newer extended edit. Regardless of the version you might enjoy the best, there's really no denying the greatness of this disco nugget.
