Kalita Records are proud and honoured to make available the first ever official reissue of the four choice tracks from Randolph Baker’s privately pressed sought-after 1982 disco album ‘Reaching For The Stars’. As a plus this 12″ comes with an unreleased instrumental take of ‘Party Life’ sourced from the original 24-track analogue master tapes.
Originally recorded at Jim Morris and Rick Miller’s Tampa-based Morrisound Studios, ‘Getting Next To You’ features both a mixture of both local Florida talent, plus jazz superstar Nat Adderley and bassist John Lamb at their finest. Originally pressed in a limited run of just 1000 copies, with no distribution and most copies being sold in the local city, and on Randolph’s own merchandise table at the back of live gigs, original copies have long been sought-after by both collectors and DJs alike. Acknowledged as a true grail and masterpiece in the disco scene and deservedly demanding extortionate figures to those lucky enough to find their own.
