„Good Feeling“ marks the return of Jay W. McGee, one of the most interesting voices from the disco and boogie era of the mid and late Eighties. Jay W. McGee’s first new recording since his last release more than 25 years ago covers a selection from boogie to soul and from disco to gospel. Releasing on various independent labels, McGee came up with two albums („Over & Over“ in 1981 and „Survivor“ in 1988), accompanied by a couple of cult 12inch singles like “Turn me On” and “When We Party” which still feature on radio and DJ playlists around the globe.
The title track “Good Feeling” is the first single and it is a new and original composition by Mr. McGee himself and the production team of Julian „Mzuzu“ Romeike and Matthias „Mucka“ Morgenroth, also known as „The Unbelievable Two“ and it arrives in remixes by North German disco and boogie experts Cool Million and Hamburg’s out and about disco-afro-salsa-soul-DJ and producer Mzuzu.
Great soulful modern disco with the funk!
Both tracks are great here. Eli handles the lead vocal on "Everybody" and does a solid job. Very nice synthwork and great arrangement as well. "Be Free" is a real FEEL-GOOD track with a lovely funkified arrangement and fantastic vocals by Sally Green. Only problem is that it is CRIMINALLY SHORT!
UPDATE: Eli was kind enough to get the tracks over to me so that I could do an extended remix. Stay tuned for it..... James Reeno (SPAZZOID RECORDS/NYC RECORDS/KUPCAKE RECORDS)
I plan on finding this (now) out of print 7". The INKSWEL track is very unique, though it may need more time to grow on me, but the XL MIDDLETON track is very easy to get into. James Reeno (SPAZZOID RECORDS/NYC RECORDS/KUPCAKE RECORDS)
