George Benson – Give Me The Night [1980]
January 1, 2012

One of the smoothest disco funk tracks your ever likely to hear from one of the most gifted artists of the genre. I defy anyone not to tap their feet and nod their heads to this classic. Its been remixed a ton of times, some of them pretty good (I even up’d one on here way back in 08) but nothing beats the original. It was written by Rod Temperton, who’s other contributions to music include Thriller and Rock With You. Not bad for a pasty white Englishman!

Another milestone for 2012 is that last night we passed 8K unique views to “From The Cans”. Which is incredible since this site is just over 3 years old and I never thought anyone would read it other than Fiver! So thank you all very much and have a great 2012!

George Benson – Give Me The Night (Phats & Smalls White Label Rmx) [2003]

Fantastic rework of Benson’s classic, Give Me The Night, pushing the disco funk-o-meter into overdrive. You want the original 12″ remix, which is a cleaner version of this white label. Its actually on the Adventures in Clubland – A Decade of Stress Records, which has sat in my car for about 3 years now. A perfect track for weaving through LA traffic when its 100F outside.
