Now here's a guilty pleasure of mine. I picked this LP up in a charity shop way back when when I noticed that along with the usual Salsoul stalwarts such as Loleatta Holloway, First Choice, Double Exposure and Ripple (some of whom we'll have to investigate soon) this album contained the Salsoul Orchestra's takes on the Bee Gees' classics 'Night Fever', 'Stayin' Alive' and 'You Should Be Dancing'. These tracks seem to have been exclusive to this release (although two of them have since turned up on the 2CD 'Anthology' set). The Orchestra also covered `How Deep Is Your Love' and `More Than A Woman' on its only release under the 'Salsoul Strings' moniker, together with its takes on other mellow tracks such as 'Just The Way You Are', 'Love Letters', 'Evergreen' and 'Feelings'. Lovely!
