King Sporty & The Root Rockers – Fire Keep On Burning [Konduko]
Pure badness all over this 1979 Jamaican Disco-Funk odyssey. King Sporty should be no stranger to those of you with a keen ear for esoteric underground Disco sounds, his tracks have been getting serious play by top shelf, discerning jocks since the 1970’s & his Konduko label has dropped many a left-field bomb on unsuspecting dance floors.
“Fire Keep On Burning” is one such bomb, an LP crammed full of unstoppable stripped back island sounds, too many killer cuts to mention but just check out the OG version of “get on down” for starters. An essential & extremely rare record & one that deserves a spot in any self respecting Disco lovers collection. %100 heat on here, party jams from start to finish.
