It would be fair to say that "Bourgie Bourgie" was one of the 1970s disco scene's true staples. Ashford and Simpson produced numerous versions (Gladys Knight and the Pips' take being the most famous), while John Davis and the Monster Orchestra served up their own typically over-the-top take. It's arguably their instrumental version, though, that remains the greatest take. Here, it gets a welcome reissue backed by an epic interpretation from Joaquin "Joe" Claussell. His eleven-minute "Classic Remix" - effectively a Tom Moulton style 12" rework - does a great job in teasing out the killer drum breaks, flitting between percussive passages and sections that showcase the original's now familiar orchestrated sweeps. It's a fantastic remix that will do wonders on disco dancefloors.
