FIRST EVER OFFICIAL REISSUE OF THIS GOSPEL DISCO GRAIL! HOT TIP!
Kalita Records are extremely proud to release the first ever official reissue of Darryl Douglas' 1981 gospel disco monster 'Holding On'.
Born out of a tight-knit friendship group based in Queens, New York, the gospel collective Darryl Douglas Inc. existed for a brief period of just two years. Yet their single 'Holding On' is as contemporary-sounding today as it was when it was first released in 1981. Originally pressed in a quantity of just one thousand, original copies have long been sought-after by both DJs and collectors alike, acknowledged as one of the best dancefloor-focused gospel tracks to have ever been pressed to wax.
Here we offer the 12" in its original form, accompanied by interview-based liner notes and a never-before-seen photo of the band, helping to tell the story and truly celebrate such a great track. We hope that you love the record as much as us!
