Saturday Night Disco

A song that I've been playing out a lot lately and enjoying has been Saturday Night Band's 1978 rare disco classic "Don't (Take My Love Away)". This funked-out hi-energy disco cut was released on the group's excellent debut three track LP Come On Dance, Dance. The song as well as the group spawned as a 'disco concept' project headed by producer's Moses Dillard and Jesse Boyce who both rooted from the early days of soul and R&B music. Like many disco projects, this group only released a pair of records during the late 1970's, however, both records being very solid, with the focus on being disco club hits. Overall, Saturday Night Band was a solid, however 'under-the-radar' group that was able to put together some fine productions within it's short but successful timespan.
