A true Holy Grail from the Cloud One catalog, “Don’t Let My Rainbow Pass Me By” is the third of a string of titles on Golden Flamingo produced by the P&P duo of Patrick Adams and Peter Brown and featuring vocals from “Guardian Angel” singer Margot Williams. Similar to previous Cloud One’s productions, this record had all the elements of a Patrick Adams classic, but with vocal arrangements that foreshadowed the work he would do with Inner Life and Jocelyn Brown at Salsoul. Perhaps not so much of a coincidence then that Margot Williams would provide backing vocals on Inner Life’s Second and final album. Even though it was originally released in 1981, “Don’t Let My Rainbow Pass Me By” is still championed by high-profile deejays today. Over the years, it’s been notably sampled in Basement Jaxx’s Romeo and covered by Todd Terje and Prins Thomas in “Reinbagan"" as a Dub-Disco cut. Available for the first time since it’s original release, our only piece of advise is to don’t let this classic pass you by.

We’ve watched the movies, seen the photos, heard the stories. As in all of New York City, crime was asrampant in the subway as it was on the streets. Thefts, robberies, shootings and killings were a frequent realitythroughout the 1970s. In 1979, a group of angered residents led by Curtis Sliwa began taking crime preventioninto their own hands, donning red berets – looking very much like a gang and calling themselves the GuardianAngels. This funky track produced by the Legendary Patrick Adams and uptown empresario Peter Brown isan ode to what was hapenning at the time. Like many of the P&P records of the time, this wasn’t dance musicfor flashy downtown clubs, it was the real uptown funk!“With bass as heavy as rolling stock, and field recordings from the subway tannoy echoing along almostempty train carriages late at night, Margo Williams's vocals supply the inner city funk menace with somealmost ethereal soul.” At a crossroads between funk, soul and an emerging Hip Hop culture this track apealledto both the disco crowd and the bravado of the uptown b-boys.

Release:1980 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Hip Hop, Organic Grooves
Very welcome reissue for this super-rare and mega-expensive 12” on Peter Brown’s cult disco label Golden Flamingo. Originally released in 1980, ‘Smooth Talk’ gives a nod to NY’s burgeoning hip-hop scene with the charming Mr Fox delivering a smooth, sexy and effortlessly elegant non-stop rap over a highly infectious disco backing track. The instrumental version of the same track is found over on side B - the aptly-named ‘Party Track’. Hugely in-demand since being one of the stand-outs of Harvey’s recent Beats In Space mix, it’s an irrepressibly energetic floor-filler, driven by a solidly grooving rhythm section with ultra-funky bass, wild space-age synth twangs, off-kilter chords and of course plenty of exhortations to ‘Par-Tay’! A must for all party-lovers and fans of that raw funky Peter Brown sound.
