Ted Taylor ” Ghetto Disco” (1977)

Wake up early in the morning, walk in your garage and pull out the first record you grab and see if you can surprise yourself with your find. I did!! Ted Taylor was born in 1934 he was a Soul-blues singer, born February 16. He was killed in 1987 in a car accident. His 1977 track ” Ghetto Disco” was a funky mixture of Soul and Hints of Disco strings combined with with Ted’s Soulful voice reminiscent of Al Green . Congas and Latin percussion are prominent in the track an obvious influence from the Miami based label TK records. Worthy of a complete listen to those who may have missed this one when originally released. Sampled in 2010 by The Beatdown Sound Machine on the track ” Groove is on My Mind” Produced and arranged by Wardell Quezergue a well known arranger, producer and bandleader, known among New Orleans musicians, used by such artists as Paul Simon, Willie Nelson and King Floyd, Jean Knight, B. B. King. He also worked with G.C. Cameron, former lead singer of The Spinners (“It’s A Shame”) and The Temptations, the Pointer Sisters, to name a few.
