Paradise Recovered

Ladies and gentledudes, you have only one homework assignment this week: set aside a good five hour chunk of time and experience this absolutely incredible relic from Paradise Garage's second birthday party, 1979, which was aired for the first time ever on Saturday. Following an hour or so of brilliant interviews and scene-setting, you've got around 4 hours of one of the most sensational things ever put to tape. Starting off with mind blowing live performances from Sylvester and Dan Hartman, it documents a spectacular night at the mythical Garage with disco music's equivalent of Jesus, Larry Levan, spinning for over three hours on the best quality recording I've heard from the era.

This is pure disco education. The music is spectacular and the message is timeless. It's so exciting that something like this should surface some 30-odd years later and still be completely relevant and thrilling - there are so many moments that made me shiver with pleasure. It looks like the broadcast will only be available to stream for another 5 days, after that I might just pop up an mp3 rip of it if that's kosher. In any case, get stuck in and get inspired. Invite some friends round, play it loud have a good time!

BBC Legends of the Dance Floor: A Piece Of Paradise - Paradise Garage's 2nd Birthday Party

Have a lovely weekend everybody - I'm heading up to spin a couple of records at Splendour early on Friday if anyone else is hitting it up. Got some nice new records to post up next week too. Much love!

Tipsters are likely to give free tips where the outcome of the match is somehow obvious example in a case where a strong team is facing a weaker team. When teams of equal strengths and capabilities are facing each other, it is hard to pick winning odds.

In this case, tipsters usually don't give free betting tips. They either sell the tips for the game or avoid predicting at all. A lot of new bettors prefer this market since it is easy to choose and not sophisticated at all.
