Today, a bit of coincidence strikes, as I'm giving you a taste of another TK Disco classic. Gregg Diamond's "Star Cruiser" (and the flip-side of its 12" version, "This Side of Midnight") was my formal introduction to the TK Disco sound, thanks to my compatriot in house, Leo. It's a long-running track with an excellent Philly-style orchestral arrangement, but with a bit more of a dirty soul-funk vibe than a lot of the Gamble & Huff productions. The piece also includes some really fantastic vocal pans, and of course, Diamond's sexy main vocal must be mentioned. A real 'lost' gem of the late '70s, "Star Cruiser" is sure to please.
