Let The Sunshine In

United Singers – The Flesh Failures (Let The Sunshine In)

Taxi – Let The Sunshine In

Swedish disco versions of  a classic Hair-tune. In the picture Tampereen Popteatteri promoting the first Finnish Hair production in 1969. Taxi has saved me a few times from an aggressive crowd wanting to hear something more danceable i.e. familiar.

You have the such eyes

Not entirely disco, just a good, noble song from soviet film “Sandu Follows the Sun” (1963). Voice by Maya Kristalinskaya.

Don’t miss a scene in interior of stylish soviet cafe with natural disco-ball (!).
