Ray Mangled Disco

Ray Mang over the years has made a name for himself with his numerous "Mangled" disco re-edit releases and has been a personal favorite of mine for quite sometime. This year he is back at it again with the CD release of Mangled Again, which consists of a mixture between previously released re-edits that mostly were released during 2008, as well as some newer edits that have yet to be released on vinyl. From the looks of things, it seems like most of these re-edits that haven't been released on vinyl, will get an upcoming twelve-inch release in 2009. On this re-edit compilation album, there are many favorites to choose from, however his 2008 re-edit of Theo Vaness's 1979 "I'm A Bad Bad Boy" continues to be one of my personal favorites. Maybe it's because I'm a huge Vaness fan, or Mang did an excellent job at adding new life to a true disco classic. Regardless of the reason, I find myself listening to the track, as well as playing the record out, on numerous occassions. That being said, "Bad Boy", is just one of the many great re-edits on this album, so I highly recommend not only purchasing a copy of the CD, but more importantly, go out and collect all the twelve-inch singles as well. These are definitely some re-edits that you don't want to sleep on.
