Ashford & Simpson ‘The Boss’ (Live)(Mark Seven Edit)


This, as the heading suggests, is a signature Mark Seven edit of one of the most fabulous gospel-delic bangers known to man: the Ashford & Simpson 1981 live version of the ‘The Boss’.

If I was still wobbling my merry way through the hedonistic haze of yesteryear (a-hem), you’d probably find me knee-deep in disco dirt, hugging the nearest breathing organism and grinning through tears of joy to this out-and-out destroyer.

It’s a Japanese-only release and super rare, but luckily those knowing heads at the terribly chi chi Oki Ni have it for sale here.

    No offence to Mark Seven though, Amazing DJ.
