You will be surprised, but this purest disco act from 1979
https://www.discogs.com/Love-De-Luxe-Again-And-Again/master/83957
was created by ... Alan Hawkshaw! With the help of our old acquaintances Les Hurdle, Frank Ricotti....

Take it here and listen

It's Russian CD-bootleg remastered from LP, with bonus-track

Thanks for the post! A billboard charted club classic. I actually knew Hawkshaw's work way back when before I got into or knew about library music from the few dance hits he did in the late 70's. This being the main one.

Downloading to see how this bootleg sounds since I never got around to archiving my own LP copy.

Another good Hawkshaw disco production LP with all the library players on it is Miquel Brown's debut LP "Symphony Of Love". Title cut was huge in the clubs (at least in the US) in 1979.

Thanks for this one! I was gonna offer to pull it out and rip it if anyone was curious, but you did it already, and your rips are top notch! Saved me some work :) I also have the promo only 12'' of the hit, which isn't a different mix, but from what I remember the dynamic range and warmth was amazing vs the LP. If I have time maybe i'll find it and rip it for any audiophile geeks like me who want to compare lol

Thank you for the compliment Porn Library!  I agree that 12" versions, even if the same as the album version, can sound better.
