'You're a Peachtree Freak on Peachtree Street'
PPU reissues rare Atlanta boogie-funk from Geno Jordan
Washington, DC-based record label Peoples Potential Unlimited has spent the last few years blessing vinyl collectors with limited run 12-inch and 45 reissues. The label specializes in rare boogie-funk, digging up forgotten dancefloor gems laden with heavy 1980s synthesizer sounds. Most of these records never made it far from the artists' hometown, and surviving copies of the originals sell regularly above the one-hundred dollar mark and beyond. Fortunately for the vinyl addict on a budget, PPU chose earlier this year to bring us Geno Jordan's 1982 vocoder jam, "You're a Peachtree Freak on Peachtree Street." The cut was originally released on Atlanta's now-defunct Velvetone Records, and the reissue contains a previously unreleased version as well as two new edits. Click link for sample.
