Smokey Robinson - And I Don't Love You (Larry Levan dub)

Okay, this has been happening for over a week now. Just talking about Clarence Wheeler the other night, and how great his organ player was, one Reginald "Sonny" Burke. Turns out he was also an arranger and producer of certain iconic Motown singers and songwriters. Also, this has to be one of Levan's weirdest remixes, and that's saying a lot.

60 Minutes Disco Music Special

Dan Rather breaks it down for middle America. Look out for cameos by the legendary production duo Rinder & Lewis at 4:49, engineer Bob Blank at 7:31 and DJ Michael Capello at 11:50. There's also great footage of Peter Brown and Betty Wright at work in the studio, although that is an ARP synthesizer, not a Moog, Mr Rather.
