Fern's Kiss

I don't have Eskimo's recent Leftfield Disco compilation 'Dirty Space Disco', though I must say it looks rather good. While checking out the track listing I noticed Dirty Sound System had chosen Fern Kinney's 'Baby Let Me Kiss You' to feature on the collection. So I went and dug my old rather scruffy vinyl out. It comes from her 1979 album 'Groove Me' on Wea and is certainly the best track on the album. A slow blow space disco groove with Fern doing her thing on top, it gets better with each listen, though it doesn't hook me until a few bars in, and then it really does... This isn't the best recording you're going to find of this track, check it out anyway.
