Although nowhere near as celebrated as some of her contemporaries, Odia Coates was one of the finest vocalists of the disco era. Over a short career, she released two albums and a swathe of singles on labels such as Epic, United Artists and Buddah Records. Family Groove Records has scored something of a coup by uncovering a wealth of unreleased material, most of which will be showcased on a forthcoming album. First, though, there's this teaser single, which boasts a mighty slab of punchy disco-soul. "Chump Change", which boasts slick production, killer horns and classic disco instrumentation, is a fine song about life on the breadline (a theme frequently explored during the period). It's rather surprising that it wasn't released first time around, to be honest, but fair play to Family Groove for making it available now.
