    Get Down, Get Down (Get on the Floor)

    (Raeford Gerald/Joe Simon)

     

     

    Joe Simon recordings

    Spring SPR 156-A (1265) 2066 551 (US 45)

     

    The first track of Joe Simon's 1975 release, Get Down.  It reached #8 on the pop chart on 10th May 1975, and topped the R&B chart one week later.  Horns introduce the proceedings, and then Joe Simon and company try to set a record to see how many times they can sing "get down" in three minutes and forty-seven seconds.  In spite of its inclusion on an anthology entitled Disco Inferno, this has more in common with the gut-busting soul of Wilson Pickett and the brass-driven funk of Sam & Dave, minus the lyrics.
