Label : Land Of Hits
Value : From 120 to 180 euros
The P&P reissue-a-thon continues this week as we're treated to another pair of long out of press pearls from the classic New York imprint. One of the most powerful disco cuts from the P&P Affiliate 'Land of Hits' Label, "New York’s Movin’" is faithful to the name. A seven minute-plus disco gem of percussive breakdowns, a solid bass groove, classic strings, and enough guitar licks to make Nile Rodgers rip out his trademark hair with jealousy. Ahzz was a studio project by Osborne Hunter and Steve Boston and despite the backlash of Comiskey Park’s Disco Demolition in 1979 and the commercialization of Disco, it was clear New York City was still movin’ in '81. Underground hits like these were just undeniable, filling the floor at The Saint, Paradise Garage and Mancuso's Loft parties. Like a lot of the titles on Peter Brown’s labels, today "New York’ Movin’" is a rare and highly sought after record, even a holy grail for some.
