Coulda swore I've previously posted about Glory's Let's Get Nice
, but blogspot's search function tells me it was all a dream, I used to read Empire magazine. Before Arthur Baker and Maurice Starr & Michael Jonzun signed to Tommy Boy Records and became Electro pioneers
, the 3 of them were in a little-known Disco group by the name of Glory who recorded one of the G.O.A.T vocoder-funk tunes. This is the music that the alien mothership in Close Encounters Of The Third Kind
shoulda used to communicate with Earth:
Glory - Let's Get Nice (7" mix)
(From Let's Get Nice 7" single; 1981)
The shortened 7" mix of Let's Gets Nice
pops in places that the regular 12" mix merely bubbles, thus the former is the definitive version. One truncation under a groove, gettin' edited down just for the funk of it.
