Ritmo Dance

Boncompagni and Ormi – Ritmo Dance

This record was made as a promotion for the Fiat Ritmo car in Italy ’78. It’s even released on a Fiat label. The only relation i have to Boncompagni & Ormi besides this, is from the Bus Connection project and Beryl Cunningham’s Why-O.

Tom Dooley

A cover version of the Tom Dooley track, an old US standard, in a 70s discofied version coming from Italy. This one starts as a spaghetti western, then turns into a demented cowboys-on-the-loose track, sounding like Sergio Leone meets a drunk Yodel male choir. The result is bad, bad, bad……….therefore absolutely magnifico! Please thank the immense italian maestro Dino Siani with the Verona Folk choir ensemble, for this gem which I’m sure will get stuck in your head and you’ll be humming for days.

Bungaloo – Viridiana

France 1977. Not a discofied theme of the 1961 Bunuel film Viridiana – voted as the 37th greatest of all time in Sight & Sounds 2012 poll – but still positively quivering with heightened emotions.

Bubble Bubble

Underwater

Yan Tregger – Bubble Bubble

How to seduce a mermaid? The obvious choice would be to play this into the ocean. There’s lots of waterproof equipment available just for that. Very experimental piece by Yan Tregger. France ’74

Break of Dawn

dawn

Christopher Laird – Break of Dawn

There’s been some references on the blog to this track. It was also featured in the great guest mix by Geoffrey LaRue. Christopher Laird is the man behind The Bumpers. Writer of black jack’s Nag Nag and probably a lot more. The 7 inch is the most common find, but there’s a 12 inch promo out there -so watch out! France ’79

Summer Breeze

Percy Faith – Summer Breeze

Percy Faith – 2001 – Also Sprach Zarathustra

“Sweet is the memory of distant summer days and friends! Like the mellow rays of the setting sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart.” – Washington Irwin.

Huh? In fact, when radiation hits your body, it actually cooks your skin, creating heat that you feel as warmth. A sonic illusion of sunkissed days on the beach is far healthier, like this rather gorgeous 1973 version the the Seals and Crofts lounge classic.

Besame

apollo100 besame2

Apollo 100 – Besame Mucho

“Katherine moaned, first in outrage, then in helpless surrender. He recognized her capitulation within a heartbeat, his demanding tongue ceasing to be a plunderer and becoming a lover, coaxing the cherry lips of her mouth to ecstasy. By slow degrees, her struggles ceased, her body relaxed, molding itself to his, reshaping itself to fit his steely contours. Katherine, thrilled with Eduardo’s magnificent strength, burst into a rousing rendition of “Besame Mucho”, with joy and supreme satisfaction.”

YES – hotter than any version of the tune unearthed before if you ask me. A tumultous arrangement, bold guitars. The buildup near the end of the clip is especially stunning. This seems to be the only actual disco record Apollo 100 made but what a record it is!
