It Ain't No Big Thing
Here is a song to help alleviate those Valentines blues for us singles around this time of the year. "It Ain't No Big Thing" is rendered here by legendary disco lady Donna McGhee. This sultry, mid-tempo disco "break up song" fits just right with the season. Produced by Greg Carmichael and Patrick Adams, this is a superb Disco album filled with great hi-hats, honest lyrics and overall lazy feel. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Donna McGhee grew up with gospel roots and then moving on to secular music. During her earlier years she performed live at the Continental Baths in Harlem then became part of The Fatback Band, recorded with Phreek,Universal Robot Band and is actually one of the speeded up voices of Bumblee Unlimited! Make It Last Forever contains five amazing disco songs that are true classics. The title song became an instant classic at clubs such as Better Days, Paradise Garage, The Loft and Studio 54. So for this Valentines "it ain't no big thing" being single. Enjoy!
