GAMM welcomes back the UK's premier disco freak...and nowadays the in-house designer for the GAMM releases. On this very special release we gave Al Kent 100% free hands to go xxxxtra deep and to also design the vinyl 12" himself so he could go extra plus on everything. This release comes in a beautiful full-color sleeve, inner bags, shrink wrap etc.

Musically the title track "Stranger Days" is a fender rhodes (live played) driven jazz-funk-disco cut that is both mystic and funky at the same...a perfect basement disco jam! Flip things over and the B1 track "Galaxy21" is a spaced-out rare groove jam that comes across as a blend of psychedelic 70s funk and 80s punk-disco...a truly freaky jam with some amazing strings towards the end. To round things up Al did a real number on an Eddie Palmieri track that Walter Gibbons used to play at his parties. It begins in Latin/Salsa...but travels far beyond ;).
