When Instant Funk’s debut album, Get Down With the Philly Jump, came out in 1976, those who heard the LP agreed that the Philadelphians had a very recognizable and distinctive sound. Instant Funk had one foot in the sophisticated Philly soul/disco sound and the other in the gritty, down-and-dirty funk of pre-J.T. Taylor Kool & the Gang — put those things together, and you have a group that was certainly unique and risk-taking. Although Bunny Sigler produced Get Down with the Philly Jump at Philly’s famous Sigma Sound Studios, this LP isn’t as strong as Instant Funk’s subsequent releases would be. The album is uneven, and it doesn’t contain a blockbuster hit like “I Got My Mind Made Up.” Nonetheless, the material is generally decent; one can hear Instant Funk’s potential on infectious tracks like “I Know Where You’re Coming From,” “Hup Two, Hup Two (Get in Line, Say Get in Line)” and “Philly Jump.” In 1976, the best was yet to come for Instant Funk, but Get Down With the Philly Jump indicated that the Philadelphians had a lot of possibilities.

This 1977 album was composed, produced and performed by Giorgio Moroder, and put the Italian-born, German-based producer on the map. It followed directly on from his ground-breaking work with Donna Summer that same year on ‘I Feel Love’. Moroder stated at the time that only electronic keyboards were used in the making of this album. The title track,- his most successful UK solo single at #16, is included here in both six-minute album and single edit versions. ‘From Here to Eternity’, ‘First Hand Experience in Second Hand Love’ and ‘I’m Left, You’re Right, She’s Gone’ reached a new generation via the popular video game Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.

Producer Anthony Monn parades every effect known to Euro-dream imagery in support of Lear as disco vamp: whispers from inside a tunnel, rhythms that filter in subliminally, themes that scale up to soprano range, choirs of angels singing, guitar rhythm rock-ons, and, of course, Lear’s voice. Lear’s singing is perhaps Monn’s greatest effect: androgynous, sultry, out of reach and horny at the same time, Lear works hard to pretend at playing the merciless siren. She can’t properly sing even one note, but what’s that got to do with anything?
