Signed to Chris Blackwell’s Island Records, Jones’ three albums Portfolio, Fame and Muse were produced by none other than Tom Moulton, ‘the father of the disco mix,’ who earned his title by assembling the first continuous mix side of an album in 1974 with Gloria Gaynor’s Never Can Say Goodbye. After working with the Three Degrees, MFSB and Trammps, he was hot property, and Jones seemed a natural choice for him to work with.

‘The Disco Years’ is a beguiling time capsule, bringing together Ms Jones’s three pivotal, era-defining albums recorded for Island Records from the late-‘70s, Studio 54 disco epoch. Produced by Tom Moulton, the undisputed ‘father of the disco mix’, and recorded at Sigma Sound studios in Philadelphia, ‘Portfolio’, ‘Fame’ and ‘Muse’ are three of the most disco-sounding records of all time. Scarcely available on vinyl for many years, ‘The Disco Box’ re-presents the three albums as a single collection over four 180GM vinyl LPs, lovingly remastered and with a bonus LP containing the hard-to-find singles and B-sides from the era.
