Queen Constance Records was owned and operated by Peter Brown, of P&P records fame, so the sound of University Dances of 1978, a recording by the then house band, should come as no surprise. Gritty, stripped down seventies deep disco. Just look at the cover, those two deeply in love university scholars are doing the New York Freak, possibly to the vocal cut, or maybe even the instrumental version, both of which I'm posting in devotion to the memory of St Valentine and the love the binds us all. Such an image makes you ponder, perhaps the young man on the cover enjoyed the company of his date beyond the hours of dancing academia, and sensitively laid her down to the extended percussive breaks of the Pigeon Hustle.. one can only hope.
