I found this airy housy/nu-disco take on this McGilpin burner buried in my site’s draft folder. It was time to publish it. This rework takes the original track and speeds it up a tad and focuses on the “I said sexy” and “Sexy Thing” lines. There’s a wonderful drum breakdown about[…]

It’s been speculated that this single was released right around the late 70’s due to Margo Williams‘s work that she put in with the Golden Flamingo Orchestra around that time. History aside, German producer,[…]
