Get Closer To You  

Gonzalez was a British funk group that got together in 1971. The group had as many as 31 members. They became a disco sensation in the late 70's and became immensely successful with the ultra cheesy tune I Haven't Stopped Dancing Yet. After the disco record bonfire of 1979, the group's popularity waned and they got dumped from Capitol Records. This track, which came out in 1982, was Tooti Frooti Records' only release. The boogie feel on this Raul Dance Mix is such a departure from their other records; and it jams.

    Wow, I have a couple of their earlier albums with, like you said, are funky but this song really grooves. Looks like I have to find another Disconet!

    A bonus is that Tantra's, "A place Called Tarrot" is on the flip.

    the disconet edit of A Place Called Tarrot from the flip side of this record is posted elsewhere on the blog.

    If I remember correctly Touche's Wrap It Up is also on this disconet, another standard.

    That entire Disconet record is top notch. I put this song on an old mix from 2005 that we did in San Antonio. I need to dig this record up now, thanks.
