If you hop on over to amazon and look up the review by Lavenderbyrd for Sylvester's Greatest Hits 2cd set, there is a complete History of all his recordings- including info on how the STARS album came to be, his collaborations with The Pointer Sisters, Herbie Hancock, Earlene Bentley, etc. Fun Stuff !!

The 4 tracks feet perfectly together with one of the most beautiful disco track ever at the end : I need somebody to love tonight. I discovered it with a compilation from the label Sonar Kollectiv but it was a dub version, voiceless i mean.
Ask me which disco album is the best : Stars!!!

Sylvester's "I Need Somebody to Love Tonight" could be described as an early "techno" record in my opinion. What an amazing sounding recording for 1979. I can't get over how modern, funky, and emotional this song is. The record was produced by Harvey Fuqua and Sylvester and this actual track was written by Patrick Cowley. Cowley, a few years later, became well known for a remix of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love", the early 80s HiNRG 'Megatron Man" single, and was part of the San Francisco disco scene during that time. This collaboration effort between Sylvester/Cowley could be described as similar to the Georgio Moroder / Donna Summer electronic connection...each bringing in the late 70s synth-techno disco sound around the same time. Love this record and still sounds fresh and futuristic.

This LP is another one of those amazing electronic disco discoveries for me. "I Need Somebody to Love Tonight" is the most sublime epic hypnotic electronica masterpiece. Most associate Sylvester with hi-NRG, and with Patrick Cowley in production maybe something upbeat, but this laid back track contains a wonderful looped dreamy acid line with haunting strings, and Sylvester's vocal is silky smooth. This was apparantly a bit of an anthem at the Paradise Garage, i can just imagine the dancefloor going into a tranced out frenzy to this. Truly glorious.
