Larry Harris from Casablanca Records joins Craig for a chat about the disco hits that emerged from this seminal 70s label. The label was home to Donna Summer and realised records by George Clinton and Parliament. It also put out the soundtracks to Flashdance and Midnight Express, the later featuring the seminal disco/electro tune Midnight Express Theme by Giorgio Moroder. Recently Casablanca Records have put out records by Prince/Freddie Mercury wannabe Mika. Plus we go Soul Mining for another record with funk or soul in it that from someone you wouldn't expect us to play.
