70s Kicks is out

My second compilation for the year has just been released and will be in-stores from next week (5 November 2012)

The idea behind it was to create a 70s selection that wasn’t disco, pop or Eurovision inspired. Using UNDERGROUND as an inspiration I picked known tracks and mixed them up with some forgotten gems and other tracks not generally found on compilations. Many of these tracks are REFORM! favourites and like with the UNDERGROUND selection, I’ve tested most of these many times over on various dancefloors throughout my years of DJing.

As with all compilations, there were several tracks that could not be cleared for various reasons (mostly publishing complications or just plain old record company politics). I’m most upset about NAPOLEON XIV – They’re coming to take me  way ha-ha. This was an original Doors Nightclub in Marshall Street Johannesburg classic. Same with other tracks by Fleetwood Max, B52s, War (Low rider), Sex Pistols and The Clash.

No matter! We still managed to clear a ton of super tracks like the original ‘Venus’ by Shocking Blue, ‘Stuck in the middle with you’ by Stealers Wheels and various other tracks by Ramones, Average White Band, Manu Dibango, Van Morrison, T. Rex, ZZ Top, Frankie Valli, The Cure and others.
