Welcome back to Demon's 'Disco Discharge' series, originally issued in a series of 2CD collections between 2009 and 2012. The themed compilations of full length, extended Disco originals, lovingly curated by the mysterious "MrPinks" and with detailed sleeve notes by author and Disco aficionado Alan Jones, have remained in demand among collectors and the club cognoscenti.

This time around, the series kicks off with 'Classic Disco' and 'Disco Fever USA', both issued in new formatted Deluxe 2CD gatefold packaging. While Disco happened the whole world over, 'Disco Fever USA' cherry picks 20 of the milestones hailing from its American birthplace. Alongside lesser-known cuts from the likes of Fern Kinney, Gloria Gaynor and Boys Town Gang there's also another wealth of treasures including a rare instrumental version of Earth, Wind & Fire's 'Boogie Wonderland', the sublime 'Like An Eagle' by sometime gay porn actor Dennis Parker and Bionic Boogie's 'Risky Changes', a track you could say predicted Chicago House sound a full ten years before the fact. Each track included is the full length 12" / Album version and are unmixed so DJ Friendly.
