I AM THE ULTIMATE WARLORD and AMERICAN FADE
A space disco favorite of mine is definitely Ultimate Warlord by The Immortals. This Canadian record is just all out odd. I AM THE ULTIMATE DOWNLOAD
Produced by it originally came out on RCA Canada in 1979. But became much better known in 1981 when San Francisco label Moby Dick licensed it and did remixes. It quickly became a classic at The Trocadero Transfer in San Francisco spun regularly by Bobby Vitteritti and it was also big at The Saint in the East Village New York City. Remix
The Immortals had no other releases but Willi Morrison had other great Hi NRG projects like American Fade who had a major smash with I'm Alive download it. Then there was also the superb Grand Tour with the classic Flight from Versailles. Will was responsible for THP, Sticky Fingers, Southern Exposure and even the Skatt Brothers WALK THE NIGHT and the Duncan Sisters too. Willi Morrison had a successful disco career alright! Ian Guenther was partially responsible for most of those projects too but certainly seems less prolific at least as far as Discogs.com is concerned.
