T.C Curtis – ‘Pack Your Things and Get Out My Life’


Been a bit lax on the post front so got plenty of gold that needs shared. First up is T.C Curtis ‘Pack Your Things and Get Out My Life.’ Another proto-house, bargain basement, 50 pence gem. There’s some serious melancholy in that voice, its got a hint of Antony Hegarty (of Antony and The Johnsons and Hercules & Love Affair) on it. Lots of dubby percussion and the obligatory sax solo on this one. File next to Colonel Abrams.

Theodore DeReese “Teddy” Pendergrass


Teddy Pendergrass requires little or no introduction. Rather than lifting everyone else’s text,  those that don’t know and want to know check his life story here. It is well worth glancing over and it is not without tradegy.

Rather than focus on his story I thought it would be appropriate just to share three personal favourite tracks from the man himself.

The first two ‘Only You’ & ‘Take Me In Your Arms Tonight’ are sure fire Disco heaters.  ‘Joy’ comes few years later on a New Jack Swing tip..
