Biddu Orchestra – All Right Now

As the British hipster Oscar Wilde said the only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future. Be What You Wanna Be from the 1978 album Disco Gold is the classic of the month.

Is that a teabag hanging next to his crotch?

Night Of The Black Mamba

29998989089Ozo – Night Of The Black Mamba

Of course the electronic disco mix from the In Disco Town album (1980) is the most lethal version, but the unique mixture of chants and violins on this 7″ version make it my favorite cut (UK, 1977). And yes, I do envy those who own the lp…

12 West Mix

disco-inferno-title

12 West Mix

The 2nd mix in the series based on the club charts of Vince Aletti’s book Disco Files. This one contains records spinned at the legendary New York gay club 12 West during the last week of 1975 and the first ones of 76, seemingly the culmination point of a particularily bizarre period in music history. This is when the disco remake subgenre was at it’s peak and all kinds of dance versions of hits and unlikely hitettes flooded the market from all over the globe.

One would have thought the shirtless guys at places like 12 West and The Flamingo would go for tough tracks but no, they embraced the camp excesses of “Baby Face” by The Wing and A Prayer Fife & Drum Corps and “My Way” by The Bobby Azeff Orchestra. Talking of which, even Frank Sinatra himself decided to update his repertoire with a discofied interpretation of the standard “Night And Day”, included here along with then-hot diva dance tunes by flamboyant gay icons Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand.

Even if you spend countless hours at the gym, have a flawless haircut and a perfectly tailored velvet suit… some ladies just can’t resist the sound of the early sixties Ferrari F1 engine or the mystic call of the safari disco sound (France, 1972).

La Martinique, New York

b41111ecd4a27d4c7395ab9bde33522a

La Martinique, New York

Starting a new series focusing on playlists featured in Vince Aletti’s book Disco Files.

On page 49 dj Raymond Goynes lists his top ten for the week of December 28 1974 at La Martinique in New York. The titles include kickass boogiestyle cuts like Philadelphia by B.B. King, Express By B.T.Express and both the Gene Page and Love Unlimited Ork versions of Barry White’s Satin Soul. Many of the other records popular in clubs during the week like Get Dancin’ by Disco Tex and the Sex-O-Lettes, one of the biggest hits of the season, don’t get mentioned but it’s quite possible that at least this hilarious/awful/fascinating fave got spinned at La Martinique as well. Hear some of Get Dancin’ in the mix and see what you think. Crap or grand?
