The Choice Four

The Choice Four were a harmonizing soul group from Washington, D.C., whose records deserved a better fate. They recorded for RCA in the mid-'70s, but were never able to score a breakout hit, despite making some very moving, nicely sung ballads. The group consisted of lead singer Bobby Hamilton,Ted Maduro, Pete Marshall, and Charles Blagmore. Maduro and Marshall were former members of the Love Tones, and Blagmore of the Stridels. Unfortunately, none of their singles ever cracked the R&B Top 40 in the 70s.

Their track "Down To Earth" takes on a great disco feel,with some nice basslines and grooves. The edit here comes courtesy of my friend Mash (aka Martyn Henderson) from Glasgow,who runs the Compact Disco.Net clubnights. Here he bumps up the production and keeps the groove and feel of the original. Enjoy. Click On Right Hand Arrow To Download...
