Paul Mauriat – Jesahel

Yesterday’s youthful revolutionaries turn to today’s businessmen – but not always. Occasionally, Paul did the opposite.

Soul Dontac

Exif_JPEG_PICTURE

Valentine Kaneko – b-side

Valentine Kaneko – Soul Dontac

The Soul Dontac is a Japanese disco dance – the flip of the sleeve of the 7″ has a tiny illustration of a simple series of moves: step back with your right foot, step back with your left foot, step to the right side with the right, step to the right side with the left, shake your hips, jump into the start position. To make sure you get it right there’s also something like 1400 words on how to perform the thing. It’s highly unlikely that anyone ever did the Soul Dontac in public, though.

The real action is once again on the b-side.

Adults Only / Solo Per Adulti

Maria Sole – Bestia

Maria Sole – Regné Gnené Gnené

Maria Sole – Sono A Far Pipi

Even though all records here are from our own collections – we never download anything – the views expressed in them do not necessarily reflect the views of the bloggers. Still, we must bring even the most potentailly offensive tracks to your attention. It is our duty to report and to serve.

Maria Sole aka Mara Vittoria Solinas is an Italian singer, actress and a performance artist, along the lines of Barbara Markay whose “It’s Allrite to Fuck All Nite” was posted here earlier. Whereas Barbara promoted light carefree sexuality, Maria had a far weirder agenda. Regné Gnené Gnené is apparently harmless family entertainment but Bestia should be approached with caution. The records are from 1979, as is the tune about peeing.

K. Pythacunthapuserectus – Voodoo Ju Ju Obsession

One the top five names for a disco act. Importantly however, the K. Pythacunthapuserectus track from France doesn’t disappoint voodoo-wise, either.

“And when Joshua heard the noise, he said to Moses, “There is a noise in the camp.” But Moses said: “It is not the noise of the shout of victory, nor the noise of the cry of defeat, but it is the sound of a bass drum I hear, off a record made in France in 1976, on Philips label.” (Exodus 24:18)

Rocky’s Filj ‎– Astrocar

Astrocar

Fast Italian pop rock track dated 1979, by the progressive rock group Rocky’s Filj, which had its name derived from the singer Rocky Rossi. This single was a come back attempt by the group, after some years of stop, due to the detention of one of the members for driving without licence. The label is Shirak, same of some Italian disco classics as Love Filters LP by Chrissy G., and 7″ with Got To Be and Too Many Lovers by Ben Norman, among others.

Mållbergarna – Caravan

Discofied who knows how many times but still, this one from Sweden could well be among the best of the lot, or what do you think? If you don’t agree you’ll surely appreciate the eye candy attached. There’s been plenty of it in the blog this year, with hot vocalists, actors and musicians making us swoon throughout 2015. Now take a look at the Mållbergarna!

Pyar Karnevale

Asha Bhosle – Pyar Karnevale

“Its rising is not bright
nor its setting dark

Unceasing, continuous
Branching out in roots innumerable
Forever sending forth the serpent coil
of living things
Mysterious as the formless existence
to which it returns

Twisting back
Beyond mind

We say only that it is form from the formless
Life from spiral void”

—Prehistoric Prayers by Timothy Leary

Aimer D’Amour (Instrumental)

aimerMalibu Limousine – Aimer D’amour (Instrumental)

My beloved 12″ copy sounds overtly happy at original speed and as happiness has been so last season for ages, you better slow it down for the right mood. The vocal side was already featured in here, but to my ears it’s all about the “instrumental” on the flip.
