The Sand Flowers

The Sand Flowers – Sahara Casino

The Sand Flowers – Pacific Grapefruit

When i heard Carlo’s birthday mix this year, i was laying very cosy on the couch enjoying his italian vibes when suddenly i was pulled up on the floor, moving my arms, hips and legs in mysterious ways that could only have been seen at a mushroom eating gipsy party. The track was Sahara Casino by the French group (project) The Sand flowers. Of course i had to get this ’74 record immediately. To my surprise the flip side was also a bomb!

Santamaria De Portugal

Portugal

Albatros ‎– Santamaria De Portugal

Nice tune from the Italian Albatros guys. Very cool arpeggio driven synths floating in between the drums, chants and horns. Maybe not as good as the stop stop violence that came out a year before this, but i definitely think it belongs in the archive

Disco Guitars

LeBaron Disco-Go – Disco Guitars

Anita – Lady Bump

Track one is the elusive LeBaron track missing from the database until now, made in Finland in 1980.

Track two confirms that Anita made a disco record. Anita who? Anita the girl who was my one-time babysitter when I was a small child, that’s who. She lived almost next door to us and came over when my parents went off to night clubs or generally out wherever. The vivacious and full-bodied girl soon decided to become a singer and proceeded to record a massive local hit called Sormet Pois! (No Fingering!). Naturally, to promote the sleazy song she posed topless in the then best selling tabloid magazine, holding her boobs in her hands for all to see. An instant success, she was gradually transformed into a national institution and remains a popular schlager act today.

Studio One Los Angeles Mix

studio one

Studio One, Los Angeles Mix

Sounds played thirty seven years ago, the week of April the 18th to 23th 1977 at Studio One disco at 652 North LaPeer Drive in West Hollywood Los Angeles. According to Vince Aletti’s book, dj Paul Dougan listed the German record Jungle People by Soulful Dynamics as one of the hottest tracks. Also popular in clubs that week and included in the mix: the brilliant disco exotica number O Ba Ba by D.C LaRue, the seven minute version of Ritchie Family’s Lady Luck, the non-remixed original version of Kings of Clubs by The Chocolats, the David Todd remix of Faith, Hope & Charity’s You’re My Peace Of Mind, etc.

They used vinyls only in 1977 just like we do now at Overfitting Disco, of course.

Cracker Jax

1515 – Cracker Jax

Eerie beats and dramatic chants from France. Judging by the fab flyer glued to the sleeve this was spinned at the Kafka club in Geneve.

Il Guardiano Del Faro ‎– Oasis

Il Guardiano Del Faro ‎– Oasis

It’s not cool to smoke, but when travelling through Sahara i would say go ahead. I would even go that far and suggest adding it up with some moroccan hashish. The ’78 tune is by the Italian producer Federico Monti Arduini and would fit very well as the score for your dessert high

Lost In The Stars

Lost-in-the-stars

Ancient astronaut fantasies with a distinct christian flavor dominate this 1980 album, released milliseconds before the end of the Space Disco period. Its not a great album, but there are interesting parts in between and seems largely unknown. Borrows heavily from Chromium it would appear, but doesn’t quite match them.

Reyhan ’78

reyhan

“Beautiful Reyhan, the mountain girl. The one everyone wants”. Lyrics go something like that in this popular Turkish wedding favorite, which is built on an Azerbadjani folk song. This particular version was made for the modern dancefloor, or maybe even wedding afterparties, and got some international attention when it came out back in the late 70′s.
