This is a spectacular CD of rare and unusual (with the exception of Fantastic Voyage by Lakeside and Love on a 2 Way Street by The Moments)speedy soulers and lush romantic soul. An amazing template of NYC in '77 when WBLS was at the top of it's game. Frankie was the man who broke the underground records months and sometimes years before other commercial radio stations. He also had a symbiotic relationship with Larry Levan the DJ of Paradise Garage and the two instituted many of the cuts that defined the 70's disco scene. This is amazing also for all the on air bits they collect including the recordings of the women with various nutty accents saying "It's HIM my idol!" and "DO IT Frankie Do It!". The radio adverts for Stang Records are extra real. A smashing collection
