TUNE OF THE DAY – STEPHEN ENCINAS – DISCO ILLUSION
Original – Kalinda – 1979
Repress – Invisible City Editions – 2013
Well I had to post this slab of black gold to celebrate the UK and Irish postal system getting there act together and finally delivering my post. It only took 11 days but I would have waited 11 months.
Fetching an incredible $2000 only a few weeks ago, the repress everyone has been waiting for courtesy of invisible city editions has already sold out in most vinyl stores. You might recognise this ultra rare Trinidadian disco monster as the first track on MCDE’s Boiler Room mix a few months back.
The B-side Lypso Illusion, serves up a more Caribbean styled Jazz Funk version.
