Nobody could have suspected the path that Clarence Henry Reidwould take during the 1960s. During this time he worked asa singer/songwriter and producer for the likes of KC & TheSunshine Band, Bobby Byrd, Gwen McCrae, and various others.He would also release his own compositions, including the deepsoul classic "Nobody But You Babe", which would become asampling favorite of KRS-One, Erykah Badu, DMX, and more.Though Reid maintained a reputation as a consummateprofessional among the romantic soul crowd, outside ofhis day-job he turned a complete 180, writing and performinghumorous, deliberately raunchy and sexually-explicit parodies ofsongs. These parodies would be relegated strictly to friends atparties, and wouldn't see a wide audience until the 1970s hit.In 1971 Reid would gather a collection of studio musicians,including famed R&B sidemen Timmy Thomas & Benny Latimoreon keys, and Little Beaver on guitar, to finally commit theseparodies to wax. In order to protect his identity as a songwriterReid took on the stage name Blowfly, and dressed as a comicbook super villain for live performances and photos. From therehe would release numerous studio albums of similarly crudeparodies throughout the 70s and 80s, which were enormouslypopular as party records. These records would also go on tobecome a wealth of sampling fodder for artists like Jurassic 5, ThePharcyde, DJ Shadow, Eazy-E, and many more, as well as leadReid to collaborate with artists as varied as soul contemporaryKing Coleman, to former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra, toganja-centric rapper Afroman.1978's Blowfly's Disco Party was no less lewd than itspredecessors, putting a funky-disco spin on Reid's signatureblend of explicit parodies, and deliberately cheeky tracks. Notrack is safe from Reid's dirty lyrics, as he parodies classicMotown hits, Delta blues songs, and even his own discography.(His naughty spin on his own deep soul hit "Nobody But You,Babe", becomes "Nobody's Butt But Yours, Babe".)

Reid had already coveredthis topic earlier on the similarly titled Blowfly Zodiac, but ZodiacParty differentiates itself from its lack of parodies, instead placingReid in the center of a raucous shindig with his backing band,schmoozing effortlessly with excited partygoers, curious to knowtheir signs. It's a singularly surreal entry in the parodist's catalog,but a no less entertaining 70s party record.

It was a perfect match for Blowfly. The resultingalbum was simply titled Disco, and featured significantlyincreased production values, a more polished sound, and theaddition of string sections and backing choruses. Featuring Reid'sexplicit takes on tracks by B.T. Express, Chic, The Isley Brothers,and even Frankie Valli.

Across 16 tracks Reid and hiscollective of session musicians would turn classic soul and R&Bhits by the likes of James Brown, Otis Redding, and Sam & Dave,and twist them into bluntly graphic parodies, regularly divingheadlong into realms sexual, scatological, beyond naughty.
