Most Wanted! Bumblebee Unlimited – Love Bug (Amour Records)
From the same collective of artists as Cloud One, The Universal Robot Band and Inner Life. The uncrowned King of NYC Disco, Patrick Adams with production partner Greg Carmichael. Here we go with ‘Love Bug’, one of their biggest (Underground) classics, in addition to ‘Everybody Dance’, ‘Lady Bug’ and ‘I Got A Big Bee’.
This ‘Love Bug’ sounds deliciously sexy. It’s kind of obsessional and, as a matter of fact, very uplifiting… I remember Adams telling me a few years ago he’d done almost everything on this synthed string led phonky joint… Not to mention the voices which he’d put effects on!
Initially issued on Reg Greg Records, its multi-colored pressed vinyl on Canadian label Amour Records used to get even extra attention on eBay. This resulting in tough battles between bidders.
Nothing but fetichism in the noblest sense of the term, don’t you think?
Patrick Adams, Peter Brown (not the singer responsible for ‘Dance With Me’) and Greg Carmichael have left an impressive catalogue of top quality jams.
Pieces one can find on labels such as P&P Records, Heavenly Star, Sound Of New York USA, Hit Makers Of America or Red Greg among others. As many references getting extra value from a year to another just like those great bottles of wine…
