    Bumblebee Unlimited was a studio concept of producers/songwriters/arrangers Gregory Carmichael and Patrick Adams that merged hot disco music with sped up vocals to suggest singing bugs. One track even makes a sly reference to "Fly of the Bumblebee." The vocalists who get "bug-a-zied" include Leroy Burgess and Carmichael. Burgess is most recognizable on the bouncy "I Love You," which is similar to his work on Phreek's "Everybody Loves a Good Thing" and 'Honey Bunn." There's even a mack daddy bee on "Lady Bug," which is also represented in its 12" version. Other standouts include "Space Shuttle Ride," the thumpin' and humpin' "Love Bug," the bass epic "Funk For Days," and "Everybody Dance" -- not the Chic hit -- which can also be found on Star Funk, Vol. 29. You can definitely hear the roots of house music in this album that is slammin' through and through. Get stung today! [Originally issued as a 1979 RCA LP, Quebec label Unidisc reissued it on CD.] ~ Ed Hogan
