Who knew two lasses in Brighton England called Wildblood and Queenie would end up owing three Cayres brothers outta NYC called Joseph, Kenneth and Stanley so much. For our soul has always sung thanks to Salsoul Records, the strung-out disco and funk-fuelled label that has been changing the way we danced since 1974. With legendary divas such as Carol Williams, Claudia Barry, Loleatta Holloway, Rochelle Flemming, Joyce Jones, Annette Guest, Jocelyn Brown, Brenda Gooch and Charo they raised us up with every vocal line. And with the bands including Moment of Truth, Surface, Instant Funk, Sky, Gaz, Inner Life, Ripple, Logg, Double Exposure, First Choice, and artists including Candido, Bebu Silvetti, Leroy Burgess, Bunny Sigler and the epic Salsoul Orchestra, they were always just the right size.
So join us on 1BTN on Friday 7th February as we celebrate one of the greatest disco labels that ever spun a soundtrack to life. We may have only three hours of playtime in the 1BTN bunker but girl do we promise you a Love Sensation that will have you Dancin’ And Prancin’ so much you’ll need to call on the services of Doctor Love to recover.
