Kalita are delighted to announce their next release, Steel City Connection’s 1978 single ‘Steel City Disco’, accompanied by extensive interview-based liner notes and never-before-seen photos.
Originally privately released on Pittsburgh’s Jeree Records, ‘Steel City Disco’ is one of the most sought-after disco records in existence, searched for by most yet the treasured possession of but only a few fortunate DJs and collectors. A grail in the truest sense of the word, this is a masterpiece in disco form, guaranteed to set any modern discerning dance floor alight.
Kalita are honoured to be releasing for Record Store Day 2019 the Emerson’s mythical 1988 unreleased boogie masterpiece ‘If You Need Me, Call Me’, accompanied by extensive interview-based liner notes and never-before-seen photos.
‘If You Need Me, Call Me’ includes both the issue and unreleased demo versions of Emerson’s extremely sought-after single ‘Sending All My Love Out’, originally privately released and distributed in 1988 in a run of just 500 copies on LAS Records.
Kalita Records are extremely excited to repress once again their second release, Okyerema Asante’s Ghanaian disco monster, ‘Sabi (Get Down)’.
After touring the world and recording with both Hugh Masekela and Oneness of Juju, ‘Sabi (Get Down)’ was Okyerema’s first solo record, released privately in limited numbers on his label Atumpan Records in 1980/1. Recorded and manufactured in the USA, but only ever released on the African continent, this self-funded, scarce, and brilliant afro-disco LP regularly exchanges hands for eye-watering prices.
