John Davis & The Monster Orchestra
Disco Recharge: Night and Day / Up Jumped The Devil


Following his early work producing and arranging tracks for acts such as William DeVaughn, Tapestry, Carol Douglas, The Three Degrees and Spice alongside many others, it was only a matter of time before John Davis was offered a solo deal of his own. Once given that opportunity by Sam Weiss of Sam Records, John's first project was a disco-fused collection, mainly comprised of Cole Porter covers entitled 'Night and Day'. Recorded with the help of some of Philadelphia's finest musicians, the project produced a number of scintilating tracks, including the pulsating 'I Can't Stop' penned alongside Craig Snyder. This prompted label owner Weiss to encourage John to create his own material on his next album 'Up Jumped The Devil'. This proved an inspired decision, launching two massive disco hits in particular; 'Up Jumped The Devil' and 'The Magic Is You'.

Here, Disco Recharge has completely remastered and combined these fantastic albums, in addition to including bonus 12" and 7" edits of the key releases as part of a stunning 2x CD release, with extensive sleeves notes provided by Disco Recharge regular Alan Jones. This is definitely another essential reload from the history of disco music!  

Please note that this is a Non-Almighty product.
