Notes:
This disco classic has been remixed many times since its debut on a 1977 album by First Choice. The 1979 Walter Gibbons version was the first remix to circulate, but it was the next set of remixes, in 1983, that elevated the song to the top of the dance charts. Shep Pettibone's 8-minute vocal/instrumental/acapella suite is the most famous. It was backed by separate vocal & instrumental versions by Frankie Knuckles.

This track is epic and is a blueprint way ahead of its time that has set a standard that will not be matched for years to come, I Know the vocals, but didn't realize this was made in 1983! and that Steve Silk Hurley had sampled the bass line for 'Jack Your Body'.... Wow... lost for words... Classc!!

:: track B1 (vocal version) was not printed on the center label (see image), though it is on the record.

A ‘must-have’ in any DJ case and a ‘must-be’ on every ‘all time Disco list’, “Let No Man Put Asunder” was much more than a feminist anthem or underground Disco hit, as it represented a standard for a whole generation.

The acappella of this timeless Disco classic is arguably among the most sampled ever in the history of the Dance Music, just like was the music from Kraftwerk or The J.B.’s.

Shep Pettibone’s version for “Let No Man Put Asunder” on A side became an instant classic; the single also had a version by the Warehouse resident DJ Frankie Knuckles on the opposite side. The acappella and the fact that both versions were made by heros of the quality music scene from that time made this the most special release of this classic.

Strange as it may seem, the credits for this tune point the production date on 1977, but this single in particular with its versions and acappella was only released years later, in 1983. This was therefore the first pressing with the quintessential acappella by the diva Rochelle Fleming, a true relic.

Listening to Let No Man Put Asunder is like hearing a mega-mix of early 90's hardcore, it was sampled so much! What a great piece of funky disco it is.
