DEVARNE - YOU ARE NUMBER ONE
The weekend is just around the corner (Although mine is beginning as i type this post!) and i thought i'd hit you guys with another wicked slice of Disco/Boogie action to get you all going! This one's from Chicago native Henrietta Thomas AKA "Devarne" and it's a BIG tune for me at the moment, I became aware of it through Chicago DJ/Producer Jerome Derradji's recent "American Boogie down" compilation on BBE / Stillmusic.
The compilation is an amazing collection of lost & extremely rare disco joints mostly from middle America.
There are alot of killer tracks on there but this is one of the standout moments for me personally, Pure roller-boogie!
According to the liner notes this particular tune was released in 1982 as a demo "That barely made it out of her neighbourhood" ... What a shame!
Make sure you check out the compilation & the above links, These guys have really dug deep for some obscurities & there's some fantastic music on there ...
