Leroy Burgess ‘Barely Beaking Even’ Opolopo Remix
This amazing mid tempo Golden Disco classic was originally released back in 1982 on the New Yorks Moonglow record label. Originally Produced by Greg Carmichael and written by one of the best writing teams of their time, James Calloway, Sonny T Davenport & the legendary Leroy Burgess. In 1988 Leroy was commissioned by Bobby & Steve’s Zoo Experience Records to do a 6 track mini album, with Barley Breaking Even (BBE) being reproduced and re –vocaled by Leroy and Orange Juice Jones man, Tyrone Williams. With the Disco sound still very much at the forefront of today’s club scene.
Groove Odyssey’s Michael Hughes commissioned Opolopo to bring BBE back to the dance floor and what a job he has done. Keeping many of the original BBE elements, Opolopo has signed, sealed and delivered a dance floor classic for the old and the new generation to embrace. It’s 8min of pure good groove, with the unmistakeable vocal tones of Leroy Burgess,
