Limited double vinyl LP pressing. 2015 collection. Norman Jay is undoubtedly one of the finest and highly respected DJs in the world today and yet again pulls from his impressive collection to provide the ultimate eclectic selection. This 12th edition kicks off with St Germain's version of Henry Mancini's ‘Pink Panther Theme’. Motown is never too far with Slim Smith's ‘Everybody Needs Love’ - originally penned by Motown heroes Norman Whitfield and Eddie Holland and covered The Temptations - or with Michael McDonald's rendition of ‘Living For the City’. Cuts from D'Influence and Paul Johnson are Norman tipping his hat to home grown soul. The Chi-Lites and The Real Thing continue and expand the ‘80s theme, bringing in 2-step and boogie. We switch again with Delroy Wilson's ‘Better Must Come’, a massively popular sufferers lament from 1971. ‘Kent People’ by Laurel Aitken & The Gruvy Beat is the next one out the box and was the flip to the 1969 anthem ‘Skinhead Train’ From the same year. ‘Splash Down’ by The Crystalites is another slate that ignited dance floors in both Jamaica and the UK upon release. As the end draws close The Stone City Band featuring Rick James serve up some hard edged boogie, hotly followed by a classic slice of late ‘70s disco courtesy of The Fantastic Four. If that doesn't have you dancing then Chanson's superb ‘Don't Hold Back’ featuring James Jamerson Jr. on bass will leave you no choice.
