Arabian Song

Eartha Kitt – Arabian Song

The Arabia thing refuses to quit here and now we have Eartha Kitt, the original Catwoman, growling and hissing a flying carpet tune from her 1984 album Where Is My Man. The album was written, composed and arranged by the Belolo/Morali/Ott team behind the Ritchie Family and Village People.

More Poncho Pueblo

Poncho Pueblo – El Bimbo

Surely the grittiest version ever. In the picture, Salvador Dali poses with Potassa De La Fayette, a drag queen scenemaker during the early days of disco in New York where this tune was massive in all it’s permutations.

All Along The Watchtower

panopticonBuffalo – All Along The Watchtower

Some people have an obsession to sing-along when dancing. Nothing wrong with that if your main focus is on the beat. You can drown yourself in the rhizome of the lyrics later in the night.

Primitive Desire

primitive

Primitive Desire

Tracks extremely hot six or seven years ago when this recording was made during a gig. Contains long versions of Eastbound Expressway’s fierce Primitive Desire, Delicate Jan by Azoto, Johnny Guitar by Slang and the anthemic Dream Machine by Disco Dream and the Androids – which absolutely has to be heard in full – plus some Discocross and a bit of Yma Sumac.

The Korva Selection

danskin

Prime Force – The Korva Selection

Prime Force – Disco Lady

What does a Korva selection contain? The British track from 1978 has a polished, soundtrack-ey feel to it and it’s indeed supposed to have something to do with a film score. The message in Disco Lady is more clear though the tune could do with some radical editing, like leaving everything out but the wicked synths.

Lawrence D’Arabie

Lawrence of Arabia_robes

Raymond Levefre – Lawrence D’Arabie

Raymond Lefevre – Star Wars

Epic in scope but perhaps still not a serious rival for the Ritchie Family version? However, old Raymond did manage what sounds like the definitive take on the theme for Star Wars, with a hot, absolutely kicking arrangement.

Isabel’s Sandstorm

isabel1

Isabel – Sandstorm

Here’s another Sandstorm from Greece, by Isabel of the One Night Love Affair and I Love Disco fame. This is a version of the Desert Express tune, not the one By La Bionda of course.

Isabel’s 1978 album has an elaborate folding sleeve for no other apparent reason than to impress us with a large image of a HELICOPTER.

Jet Flight Number 3

Jon Petersen & Skyliner – Jet Flight Number 3

Jon Petersen & Skyliner – Funky Fever

Before settling for an airline, check that the films are satisfying and the pampering bag up to scratch. As they are bound to disappoint, fly with our sounds from Overfitting Disco instead as we definitely provide first class in-flight entertainment, more effectively than the latest Marvel superhero flick or Peppermint breath fresheners from Aveda.

Leroy Vohn and his stars

super fiesta

Record it’s years you have, but you never had the chance to play.
So, before today you thought you had Leroy Vohn and Money, and Puppet, Gang and Orchestra. How could you therefore miss Leroy Vohn and his stars? One of the many incarnations-monikers of Renato Ulvioni (Ulvioni’s show and Babysitter), from 1979. A mystery why two versions: A side features Kiki Smith (not that Kiki Smith I guess) and is sung in english, flipside is sung in spanish by Sandy B. Once again, if anyone had any doubt, is a concentrate of most stylistic elements of disco: campish off-key singing is on the cheese side, but the track shows enough variety in its elements all through: female moans, drum solos and synths mainly, but (male) moanings and more can be heard in the full length on the radio.

Superhero

The exact title of this tune is unknown due to a language problem but it is a theme from a 70s Japanese superhero tv show.

Midnight Music

Stevie B. – Midnight Music

This one has season tickets to my recordbag. I’ve played it a lot and still love it. Hypnotising and dreamy groove by the German Klinkhammer crew. If you’ve seen me dj’ing you will probably have danced to it. Look for it in the cheap crates
