‘This Ain’t Really Love’ by the Sophisticated Ladies originally came out on Reflections, a New York label in 1980 and is a glorious feel good disco chugger of the highest order. Our friends over at Kalita have wisely re-issued the original mix for us all to enjoy. On the flip we have our Mighty Zaf providing his magic editing touch on the ladies version of Bobby Womack’s ‘Check It Out,’ which originally came out on Bareback Records Inc in 1977. one of the essential’s for the year.
“Kalita Records are proud and honoured to announce the first ever official reissue of the Sophisticated Ladies’ sought after 1980 New York disco single. The short-lived outfit consisted of Emma, Laura and Reather, who released two singles between 1977 – 1980. They toured America (while also touring internationally as The Bobbettes) and received radio airtime throughout the country. Here Kalita have chosen to highlight their scarce cut “This Ain’t Really Love” and have invited The Mighty Zaf to rework their version of Bobby Womack’s “Check It Out” making it perfect for modern disco dancing.”
