Too Slow to Disco
Various Artists
12" Vinyl


Repressed, double LP version. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl and housed in a gatefold sleeve. Includes a digital download card and a poster. Ah, the mid-'70s "Me Generation," not so happily remembered. And in the taste-conscious music world, for years now people have laughed at the L.A.-sound with its super-smooth, over-lavish, luxury-laden excesses. Chord progressions as thrusting as that bridge across the bay. Love the white blazer, by the way. Neiman-Marcus, right? But Too Slow to Disco isn't interested in your aging hang-ups. As you know, once musical genres get old, the best parts still shine through, and this collection is a delectable document of this forgotten phase of the mid-'70s West Coast music world. We've unearthed some of the lesser-known but still beautiful mood music of this period, by people who were often still starting out, or would write their biggest hits years later, but who surfed the West Coast wave penning some total gems. So, yes, welcome to phase 1 of your PRM (Personal Rediscovery Movement, cult fans). "The Eagles were the dream of rock and roll incarnate. 'Hotel California' became a state of mind -- the land of blue jeans and cocaine, mirror shades reflecting palm trees, blond hair flowing from convertible cars on freeways that led to oceans. You love it and you hate it!" (Don Henley in Barney Hoskyns' book Hotel California). Includes 24-page liner notes. Featuring artists: Ned Doheny, Micky Denne And Ken Gold, Rupert Holmes, White Horse, Browning Bryant, Nicolette Larson, Alessi Brothers, Photoglo, Brian Elliot, Chicago, Don Brown, Matthew Larkin Cassel, Pages, Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Robbie Dupree, David Batteau, Tony Joe White, and Jan Hammer Group.
