Disco Eclético Mix

Disco Eclético mix

Some like to dip their toes into perfectly clean piscines only, fearful of contaminated water and catching venereal diseases from other swimmers. Or floating turds. Same goes for night clubs, many shun away from lowlife. This here mix is not for well behaving people but it’s got a lot of variety, if not good taste. I originally intended to have it as my entry for the birthday selection but some of the tunes have been posted already by other members and a few tracks arrived too late for the deadline. Thanks: Thomas, Anssi & Carlo.

King Kong, King Kong

299998734597634976Prime Evil – King Kong, King Kong

Time for a King Kong track? Here’s one b-side groove from an unsuspected UK 7″. And for those into Hemi Belvedere’s: One off four door sedan was ordered to Finland in 1967 – yes, with a Hemi! It’s rumored to be still alive and well.

Sapabos – Chattanooga

Sapabos – Ox Dancer

Most prefer the a-side of Ox Dancer but in truth, like so often, the action is hotter on the b-side.

Gear Shift

Gear Shift

Express Gargo

The thrust for a powerful car engine can be derived from Newton’s second law which implies that the force equals to the time rate of change of momentum. This is documented in sound form on these tracks from a 1977 KPM library album.

Soon The Light Drops

Decierf & Zajd – Soon The Light Drops

Soon the light drops, then what happens? This episodic piece is one of my favourite library tracks, evoking visions of strange but not unacceptable behaviour.

Ufos Fly Again

Script – Ufos Fly Again

Script – Lunar Fly By

A lot of the time these ultracheap French synthesizer albums with the theme from Star Wars contain an interesting original composition or two.

Deney Terrio

However you choose to express yourself, knowing how to do the latin hustle is a plus if the competition gets tough. Here’s Deney Terrio giving you the basic six count steps from the Night Moves 3-record-and-instruction-book box set. Learn. Then add spins, dips etc.

Modo

Vocal Ensemble – Modo

As if the usual level of argument wasn’t enough Rita plans to attend the wedding wearing a mini dress by St Laurent and to bring her own records. The synth half way thru Modo, that’s the sound.

Löysin Viimein Paikan Kaivatun

FM1
FM2

Danny & Armi – Löysin Viimein Paikan Kaivatun

Vicky – Soita Kelloain

Disco music for Finnish people who enjoyed hanging around gas station cafeterias and supermarkets and liked to dance to music By Baccara, Boney M and songs that spoke to them in their own language. The first title translates as “At Last I Found The Much Missed Place” and the second is a version of “Ring My Bell”. Here the lyrics focus more directly on the clitoris.

The image however has people at the club that programmed only the best, the Funky Maruschka.

Flight 2

29997896589764578695Angelo & Eighteen – Flight 2

Images of ladies with fast bikes and proto disco tracks from the early 70s need no reasoning. Candy apple red CB750 comes from Japan and the tune from the UK (1972).

Los Valentinos – Squack

Could It Be Magic

Fool Hard

The clerk at the Mint Records in Copenhagen gave an approving nod when I handed over the Los Valentinos album, made in Danemark in 1977. You sell a lot of these, I asked. No, everybody thinks they’re trash but I think they’re kinda cool, he said. Damn right they are.

Silverstone

After party for the Silvertone Grand Prix 1977. The fashionistas would obviously wear Fiorucci, but where would they go to hear continental space disco?
