Disco Stranger

I'm really digging this 1976 song, Stranger, by C. Henry Woods Troupe...

This version is available through Stones Throw Records. Info from their site...

The Syracuse, New York, label ENYX is well known within the deep funk world as the label that launched Bad Medicine’s “Trespasser” upon the world in 1974. Two years later and the label took a stab at disco – with dynamite results. Both sides of the C Henry Woods Troupe’s solitary seven inch are superb examples of funky, jazzy, soulful disco – complete with breakdowns and excellent sax and flute solos atop a churning rhythm section.

For this 12” release, we’ve paired the original version of the song (edited together from parts one and two on the 45 rpm single) with an extended edit of the track on the B-sdie.

Written by Charles Woods, Jr. (Lymonlee Music - BMI).
Produced by Eddie Hines, Bill Armstrong & Arthur Lane.
Recorded at Pyramid Sound, Ithaca, NY.
Originally released in 1976 on Enyx Records 6011-12A/B, Syracuse, NY.
