Nice and soft



Wish feat. La-Rita Gaskin: "Nice & Soft" (Perspective, 1981)

Next to "Is It All Over My Face", this song has the most pause-worthy/maybe-not-intentionally-hilarious chorus of any disco record. Which is saying a lot.

"Nice & Soft" was produced by NY disco don Greg Carmichael, who was behind classics by the Universal Robot Band, Inner Life and Tony Aiken, among others.

I think this was the only release on Perspective Records, although the label was affiliated with Rota, which issued some good disco and disco rap records. This single bugs me out because although it's clearly a New York record, the sleeve lists the label address as an apartment a block from People's Park in Berkeley. It's a very un-disco address.
