Music Reviews

The Men in the Glass BoothIn May of 1976, a record was released that would have an unforeseen and lasting impact on the music industry: "Ten percent" by Double Exposure, an early release on larger-than-life Salsoul Records, one of the first (the first?) 12" single available to the public as previously this format was only available to selected DJ's or those lucky few who managed to get their hands on them. Not to forget to mention this 12" featured an extended version by Walter Gibbons, one of the first DJ's ever to set foot in a recording studio. "The Men in the Glass Booth" compiled by Al Kent features groundbreaking re-edits and remixes by some of the Disco eras most influential and legendary DJ's, including Walter Gibbons, Jim Burgess, Bobby DJ Guttadaro, Tom Savarese, Jellybean Benitez, Tee Scott, Rick Gianatos and John Luongo, letting us relive those magic moments of the past when Disco was flourishing and the 'Disco Mix' and 12" single were born. Available on 3xCD, two 5xLP Box Sets and as Digital Download.
