I love Hamilton Bohannon. I wish there was a box set of all the full-length versions of the best songs - there are so many with short edits on that I'm not interested in. Finding and affording those early albums on CD is so hard!

Absolute legend, and surely one of the top disco producers of all time - phenomenally funky, tight grooves!
