Highly sought after '82 Indian disco/fusion on 45 for the 1st time! The fiendishly elusive and addicting Disco Jazz LP has been harder and harder to come by as original copies have topped out at upwards of $750 USD. Thanks to the power of the algorithm, the album reached a wider audience, pushing the demand for the LP - and thus a proper reissue - through the roof. While not straight disco, and certainly not jazz, Disco Jazz creates the perfect fusion platter: East meets West, synthesizer and guitars meet sarod, and Bollywood meets Balearic to create four brilliant cuts of musical genius. 2 of those cuts are now available on 45: "Moja Bhari Moja" locks us in with the funky bassline and rhythm guitar before Rupa's vocal's steal the show. B-side "East West Shuffle" sounds like a straight up ESG or Liquid Liquid cut, a sure-shot foot-stomper. Check out the LP to get the full story. Limited clear pink 7-inch pressing w/ full color pic sleeve, recommended!
