RE-RELEASE. Bumblebee Unlimited. Lady Bug
Artist: Bumblebee Unlimited
Title: Lady Bug
Format: 12" Vinyl
Label: Get On Down

Originally released in 1978 on Greg Charmichael's Red Greg Records,
'Lady Bug' and 'Love Bug' are probably Bumblebee Unlimited's most recognizable hits. Much like Cloud OneUniversal Robot Band and
Inner LifeBumblebee Unlimited was a studio-based disco unit conducted by Patrick Adams and Gregory Carmichael. Their only album 'Sting Like a Bee' was released by RCA in 1979 with contributions from longtime Adams & Carmichael collaborators Leroy Burgess (vocals), Norbert Sloley (bass) and Richard Taninbaum (drums).
 
With an undeniable groove, signature keys and arrangements by Patrick Adams in addition to the comically sped-up vocals, Lady Bug is considered by many to be one of the most important underground tracks of the Disco era.
 
As with the original 'Lady Bug' 12" Single, the John Morales and
Frank Trimarco 'Sunshine Sound' mix takes the A-side of the RCA release. A true Disco version in every sense of the word, this almost 10 minute mix brings out the Latin percussions to the front making it a true dance floor classic and establishing John Morales as one of the best remixers in the industry.
 
The B-Side belongs to one of New York City's hottest DJs at the time:
Larry Levan. Despite being a very early remix by the legendary
Paradise Garage DJ, the talent was evident and his understanding of a club mix in wide display. It's no wonder Larry Levan would go to become one of the most respected and revered remixers of his generation.
 
Similarly to the Morales/Trimarco version, the percussions are accented throughout the mix making it ready for the discotheque. However the two mixes are undoubtedly different with Levan's bringing out more funk out of the Adams composition focusing more on the keys and the infectious bass lines. No real point in arguing which is better, so let's just be glad we have both.
