A Disco Underdog

Jorge Santana LP 1978 Album ArtworkIf your a big fan of disco re-edit 12-inches, like myself, then I would reccommend checking out the Underdog Edits. I'm not exactly sure of the producer or producers who contribute the re-edits, with only a huge number stamp acting as the records only label artwork, however I've been able to track down the artists and songs that are actually being re-edited. This re-edit series has already released eleven singles and a box set that include some classic cuts by some great artists like Jackson 5, James Brown, Willie Hutch, LTG Exchange, Billy Nichols, Gloria Gaynor, and ESG to name a few. One of my favorite singles from this series is Underdog Edits: Vol. 6 which features Jorge Santana's 1978 disco cut "Darling I Love You" and Jamie Principle's 1986 post-italo dance classic "Your Love". All the edits in this series tend to be based around a few of the tracks stronger points extended, to hover around that ten plus minute mark. Regardless, if you enjoy re-edits and newer extended mixes of classic disco, soul, and funk songs, I would try to hunt down some of these Underdog edits.

The one I have been desperately trying to get my hands on is the edit of Diana Ross' "Love Hangover" that only came with the boxed set. Can't seem to find it for lonve nor money
