Raw Boogie II: Liger Music Presents Spring Forward  

Raw Boogie rears it's head one more time!

Here we are again, examining the tail end of what was once the disco era.
One thing all of these bands had in common was that they released very few records. Not one of them got signed to a major label during the extent of their career under this name. Closest would be The Tutt Band outta Phoenix, AZ, who had 2 singles on TK.

While many veteran soul men from the states threw in the towel during the "drum machine / rap" era, these steadfast musicians all persevered AND managed to hit the music equipment stores, effectively changing the sound of soul music at that time. This mix would be a celebration of persistence, foresight, and limited access to engineering. Boogie squared.

-Disco Tom

McDouglas & Whitaker - Noise Break

    Nice mix. Love the blog.

    Any information on that last track (Emerson - Sending All My Love Out)? James Pants dropped it in a mix on Brooklyn Radio and ever since I've been trying to find out some info on the vinyl but I've been coming up short.

    Cool mix Tom - The Prophet track is serious!!!!!!!! Any idea where that can be found?

    Thx for this brilliant mix. Especially interested in those Mcdouglas & Whitaker tracks. Killing me, but i can't found a lot of info on the net. Was this released as a ' once in a lifetime album ' or as a 12'' maxi? If anybody can help me out, would be appreciated!

    Excellent work on Beat electric as usual

    I really nee that Silver Platinum and Gold - SPG Theme. Please.

    Have any of you guys opened this baby up in an audio editor?

    that right channel is screwed. Clipping over 6db over the left channel.

    that's a shame. nice mix.

    I had to do it. Here is a crappy rip edit of the SPG theme. It is not perfect, but it is listenable. Remember I started out with a clipped right channel. I normalized the left channel to balance it out and made a rough 32 beat loop on the front with a short fade on the rear.

    Yes, the one channel is messed up. I love this mix so much, any chance of getting it fixed?

    Man, I want that Prophet track too! Incredible mix of some serious raw funk!!
