A Disco Circus

B Ite Missa Est

An absolutely amazing disco track. It's one of those tracks that helped establish the house sound of the decades to follow. The 'Dum Dum' vocal bassline idea is later copied on many chicago house records.
Especially the Medley version is wonderfull. It incorporates some african sounding chants in the beginning and a very loud siren, nice to capture the attention when playing it in a club. Also vocal pieces from NYC Peech Boys' Don't Make Me Wait are featured, another defining house/garage track. The only negative thing to say about this record is that on both the original and the 'Disco Classic' reissue the Medley version sounds like it's recorded on a C-60 casette from a radioshow, mixed with worn records.

FK only gave the acetate (or tape version) to Larry Levan, David Mancuso, and perhaps a few other close DJ friends. At some point many years ago, someone stole David's copy and it was immediately bootlegged along with Francois' "X-Medley". The acetates were eventually recovered, but for many years Unidisc continued to put out this so-so-recording quality version, which does indeed have a lot of elements that were never in the original production at all.
