Fever – Fever (1979)


Formed in 1978, San Francisco. Recorded two albums. Dale Reed, an east coast musician who had his first taste of popularity as part of the 1968 collective known as the American Blues Exchange, was the brains behind the sound.
The seminal disco figures -dj’s and later owners of Megatone Records, Marty Blecman and John Hedges helped them prociding the outlet for Dale Reed‘s first outing. Their first release was the Motown cover “Standing In The Shadows Of Love”.
“Beat Of The Night” was their seminal disco single featuring the synthesizer styles of Patrick Cowley that would be the leading opponents of the early 80’s hi-NRG disco sound.  “Beat of the Night” / “Pump It Up,” which hit #1. The band consisted of Dale Reed, Joseph “Joe” Bomback and Dennis Wadlington.
