Disco Do Brazil

black-hole

Black Hole – Flash-o-disc

Black  Hole – Tarzan Disco King

Freneticas – Dancin Days

Gretchen – Freak Le Boom-Boom

Freedom Machine – Attention All The Cars

Ney Matogrosso – Nao Exute Pecado Ao Sul Do Equador

Brazilian disco tracks from 1978-79.  As Freneticas pay tribute to Dancin’ Days, the Studio 54 of Rio De Janeiro. Like As Freneticas, Gretchen is an institution in Brazil, as is Ney Matogrosso. Freedom Machine and Black Hole are more obscure studio projects. See separate post fror Black Hole’s cosmic monster “Me And My Super Friends”, the best known yet the rarest disco do Brazil of them all.

Please let us know if you would like us to do another Italo-set for the next Spaced Out Disco Session in April. We really appreciate your feedback.

Otherwise we’ll compile a “normal” Spaced Out-set.

Giorgia Lauda – Mandolino mandolino

tittytwistedgiorgia

One more italian long-forgotten hot babe for your pleasure and……..I can’t tell you how much i totally ADORE this tune!

This comes from the vaults of the essential italian Discopiù label, “Mandolino mandolino” (uncensored cover up here as you see) is a 1978 total masterpiece, and one of the very few disco tracks entirely sung in italian too. Not Giorgia’s voice on this release, a typical use of the era was to just have a perfect match with a sexy cover, a dance tune and some backsingers actually able to sing a tune in a studio.

As far as I know Giorgia did just a handful of singles, including the highly sought-after italodisco single “Taci”, German folks should also check her 1984 hit: “Jeder muss sein leben”.

This one has the perfect balance between a melancholic feel and a mad pulsing beats coupled with infectious voice, the whole result really drives me insane….if anyone is interested in having the transcript of the lyrics just let me know…..copies are still around over the net for cheap, I warmly suggest you get them before the hunt begins!
