„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. This abum is Jay W. McGee’s first new recording since his last release more than 25 years ago, covering a selection from boogie to soul and from disco to gospel. The vocals for „Good Feeling“ were recorded in Jay W. McGee’s hometown of Flint/Michigan, while the music was recorded and mixed in Hamburg by up and coming production team The Unbelievable Two.
Releasing on various independent labels, Jay W. McGee came up with two albums („Over & Over“ in 1981 and „Survivor“ in 1988), accompanied by a couple of cult 12inch singles which still feature on genre radio and DJ playlists around the world. „Turn Me On“ has been officially re-issued by Légère Recordings in 2013, while „When We Party“ is still a firm favourite among connaisseur DJs.
Jay W. McGee started singing gospel music when he was four years old. He toured with a number of funk & soul bands through the USA and Canada during the Seventies and made some great recordings that still have a fresh impact. With „Good Feeling“ he goes for an up-to-date production with true respect of his roots, aiming on the dancefloor and the mind. All ten tracks are new and original compositions by Mr. McGee himself and the production team of Julian „Mzuzu“ Romeike and Matthias „Mucka“ Morgenroth, also known as „The Unbelievable Two“. The styles range from the colourful disco-soul of „Whole Lotta Talk“, the lo-down sexy groove of „Make Time For Love“, the crazy jazz-funk of „Look Here In My Heart“ to the sweet gospel soul of „Do It Right Now“.
The first single „Good Feeling“ is available in remixes by Cool Million and DJ Mzuzu. Take a listen to Mr. Jay W. McGee and you will surely get a “Good Feeling”! ☺
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)
