Ray Martinez & Friends – Lady Of The Night / Hey Honey, Come Give Me Money (Importe/12 Records)

Born in Cuba, Ray Martinez has heavily contributed giving shape to what’s remembered as the Miami Sound while giving birth to famous label T.K. Records along with Henri Stone by the beginning of the 70’s.
Musicwise, he’s best remembered for the infectious ‘Lady 0f The Night’ which would be his first and only one release as Ray Martinez & Friends, to sort of be considered as to how Kid Creole & The Cocconuts might have sounded as a Disco band. A song written by label manager Michael E.A. Wilkinson, also responsible back then for the memorable Disconet Program Service, considered as the first meaningful DJ remix subscription service for radio stations, night club owners and DJ’s.
We’re talking history there…
