Don't Stop Now

Well it was a long weekend to say the least, spending most of my time taking care of my dog Nacho. That being said, he's doing a lot better by the way, so hopefully the worst for now is over. Thanks again for all the kind words and wishes. I was able to sneak out for a short bit to my favorite local record store Jive Time and pick up a couple of goodies. One of those goodies was The Brothers 1976 disco album "Don't Stop Now". I've been hearing good things about this record for quite sometime, however had yet to dive into it myself. I must say the critics were right, from start to finish this funky album, which was produced by Warren Schatz, is solid. The album consists of some amazing instrumental breaks and grooves that shake just about any dancefloor. There are many standout cuts on the record, however I would say that my current favorite is probably the A-side track "Under The Skin". I literally had to stop what I was doing, and take notice when this song got to about half way mark. Overall it was a nice find on a long day. I kind of felt like the "Disco Gods" were rewarding me for spending the weekend taking care of my dog. If so, they definitely rewarded me well. Enjoy!

Glad to hear your dog is doing better. I know how stressful it can be when your pet aren't well

Yes, yes and yes, except I'm kind of partial to the beginning of "Were You Ready For That" with it's string and drum playing, so genius! Thanks!

Hi TJ,

Excellent! I heard this on Disco Spectrum 3 (BBE), and I had the LP for years. A few weeks ago I was watching re-runs of Good Times on TVOne, and JJ was having a small party in the apartment. They played this track!!! Unbelievable. Thank you so much for reminding us about all the beautiful music.

Peace, Jerome
