Lena D’Água – Papalagui

r-3666036-1339507247-8503-jpeg

Lena D’Água – Papalagui

Environmentally and morally conscious Lena D’Água drops the bomb back in ’83. “Papalagui is an individual that does senselless things that get him sick on the inside, though he brags about it.” Somehow, still makes sense today.

Carine Costa – Annonce Espoir

Carine Costa – Annonce Espoir

I know, I know. This sounds like the teenager hit song version of a Rita Lee cover.

Well, it is.

Judging by her last name, singing is probably the daughter of Portuguese immigrants in France. Good thing she recorded it before Le Pen won the elections.

Branjo Sound

Branjo Sound – That’s Good

Branjo Sound – Dream of Me

Full of enthusiasm, Brano Hronec who “ranks among those people in Slovakia who are at the top of the pop music profession” and whose “authorship and interpretation are considerably marked by his professional studies at the Conservatory and the academy of Music and Drama”, stroke up his band again in 1977 for a new fashionable project. “It is natural that we accept the latest lp of Brano Hronec which is in the disco style. Bump, hustle and the Philadelphia sound seem to be heard all over the world”. Under the impression that bump and hustle were musical styles like Philly sound, he came up with an interesting and totally confused package. Bpms accelerate, volumes drop without warning and seemingly unrelated themes suddenly appear in the middle of the tracks. On That’s Good, a rising rocket engine sound or a wind effect is thrown over the music for no apparent reason but irritatingly, there are odd sharp noises audible during this passage. I checked the seemingly flawless quality vinyl for visible scratches but could not detect any.

Miss Mystery

Miss Mystery – A Uno

Another attempt by Italian session musicans to get dance floors jumping with a jazzy, funkier-than-usual groove. As usual the result was half entertaining, half a horrific missfire.

Melodya Tango

Original Cinema Quad Poster - Movie Film Posters

Melodya Tango

A disco version of Hernando’s Hideaway found on a Melodya label album with a generic sleeve and no text in English. Had the Russians made soft core sex films like the fabulous Greek production Tango of Perversion back in the seventies tunes such as this could have been put into good use.

Scoretrack

mspSiegi Gruber – Scoretrack

What are the odds of finding something this weird from a Finnish flea? Kudos to DJ Piitu for his amazing digging skills and unselfish friendliness handing me this cosmic gem originating from Austria. Most perfect soundscape for fine-tuning the moods for things to come later in the night or those peak moments of slow motion disco.

Leather Bar Backroom Mix

Leather Bar Backroom Mix

During the 70s quite a few leather bars didn’t offer the sounds you’d expect. Instead of hard and dark synthscapes the places throbbed with the girliest music imaginable. So step right in, head for the lockers, get your clothes off and your gear on, and dance. It’s AN ORDER, dog.

Love On The American Express

Hollywood Brown – Love On The American Express

Train tracks are great and it is odd this excellent 1977 one from GB has only been featured here as a part of the Romy Haag mix, ages ago. The tune captures all the excitement of rail travel and it chugs irresistibly along with high speed, just like everybodys favourite train character, Thomas The Engine.

Gimme Your Love

Pino Presti & The Hathaway Band – Gimme Your Love 12″ Mix

Here are both the 7″ and the 12″ versions to satisfy your hungry needs. As expected the 33 rpm 12″ version offers superior dynamics, but sounds way too polished to my taste. It will tempting to play the 12″ though to feel that bass throbbing through your entire body.
