    Special thank's to Carol Williams & Funk Nord Team!!!!



    She worked with producer Vincent Montana, Jr. and the Salsoul Orchestra. Her most notable recording, "More", was very popular at a time when disco was just breaking into the mainstream and is widely seen as an early disco classic. More was the first 12 inch commercial single that one could buy in stores all over the world. It peaked at #4 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1976. The success of "'More" led to the 'Lectric Lady album, released in 1977 and featuring the hits "Come Back" and the club classic "Love is You". This was sampled in 1999 by Italian DJ Spiller in an instrumental track called "Groove Jet", on the "Mighty Miami EP", and in 2000 in the vocal version of the track, called "Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)" with vocals performed by Sophie Ellis-Bextor. The track featuring Ellis-Bextor reached number 1 in the UK and AUS Pop charts and sparked renewed demand for the original. Carol's success at salsoul put her in demand as a major disco act traveling the world performing at all the major disco clubs like Studio 54 and Odyssey 2001 and etc. she did a lot of TV specials like the legendary performance at roseland with the salsoul orchestra which was on television in 1977 promoting an album completion called Salsoul Disco Boogie.

    Not long after the release of her album, Williams parted company with Salsoul. In 1978 she signed with Canadian label Roy B. Quality Records she recorded a duet with singer producer Tony Valor "Love Has Come My Way." It got a lot of club play which led to her 1979 album Reflections Of with disco classics "Tell The World" and "Dance the Night Away". Carol toured the world with these classics, performing with other stars like The Trammps, Thelma Houston, the Village People, Tom Jones and James Brown.
    The 1980s to Present

    In 1982 she had a R&B hit "Can't Get Away From Your Love" on Vanguard label which did well for her on the R&B dance charts. "You've Reached the Bottom Line" in 1983, "What's The Deal" in 1987, and "Queen of Hearts" in 1989 all kept her on the charts. Her hits played an important part in the disco club scene. DJs typically kept Carol's records available as people would eventually request her songs.

    Carol Williams is still performing, doing shows on disco flashback concerts and she travels with her live band. You can find Carol Williams on Salsoul various compilations Unidisc, Suss'd Record's Vanguard. Show less
