DESCRIPTION
 

The Florida based Brookside imprint have dug deep into the Philly master tapes and let NYC master-mixer Mike Maurro loose on a couple of stone cold classics from the catalog! Maurro, a Queens based DJ and mixer since 1986 has become one of the top remixers out there today with his own, faithful takes on numerous dance classics from the last 30+ years. Here, he tackles 2 cuts from Philadelphia International recording artists and Soul, Funk and Disco legends - Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes. "Bad Luck" takes up side-A of the 12", a glorious 13 minute remix that just oozes class. This one was made with DJ's in mind, extended drum breaks, elongated sections that squeeze every drop of sweet Philly Soul out onto the dancefloor. Side-B sees a fantastic mix of the evergreen classic "The Love I Lost", clocking in at just under 12 minutes. A slow burning version with the instrumentation and arrangements up front for the first few minutes before the track unfolds and Teddy's iconic vocals grace our eardrums. Incredible! These mixes are ESSENTIAL for any Disco/soul/Funk fans out there, unmissable for the DJ's, legitimately remastered and pressed onto high quality 12" singles in conjunction with all rights holders.
