JAMES CHANCE AND THE CONTORTIONS

Live In New York

(Danceteria) Used 2xLP $15.00

Brutal yet danceable French reissue from 1991 of a live cassette (ROIR 1981), a timeless attack that combines screeching alto sax and vocal rants with a relentless disco beat. Ornette Coleman, Ronald Shannon Jackson, guitarist Bern Nix, trombonist Joseph Bowie and background vocals by the Discolitas provide the sleazy stage pageantry Chance champions. Perfectly hazy sound quality. Covers include “That Old Black Magic” and two by James Brown, “I Got You” and “King Heroin.”
