This just got repressed (along with a ton of other GU stuff). Check Juno Records if you don't know where else to look.

Jisco Jazz: Deodato's Whistle Bump.

Not GU's best by any stretch... good covers but I'd rather listen to the originals.

B1 is based on "T.C. Curtis - You Should Have Known Better"

Glenn Underground has always paid tribute to the disco era and his productions sound like the deepest side of it.
In Jazz Love #2 GU samples Vincent Montana's "It Looks Like Love" and there are no more boudaries left: house is disco, disco is house, deep ...

How does that guy do it? Jaz Love #2 needs nothing. Not only is it a serious ass and earth shaker, but also a piece of jazz genieus. Future producers should look to GU for how to create house music that is better than great.

I'll second the other reviews. A superlative, if that were possible, release from the Soul Brother of Detroit. Someone more astute with superior soul knowledge will probably recognise where the sample for Jaz Love #2 comes from, but DJ Sneak also uses to powerful effect on one the tracks from his Polyester ep #2 on Henry Street which, damnit, has yet to be liberated into my collection.

Not pulling any emotional punches with the first track, there is more. Leav'en To-Day an unhurried house groover with an unshaven bassline to shake you up in front of those speaker stacks & yet if that weren't enough Jisco Jazz will get those retro flares a-twitchin' with pure discohouse vibezzz.

Enough recommendation for you?

track a 1 is Fantaboulus!!!! i found it about two years ago and i have picked up two more since then it always seems to work its way into sweaty late night sessions. tracks b1 and 2 are also very well put together.a smooth blend of disco and mellow moods calls for good times and summer sounds!
