Atoll

Atoll – Smarto Kitschy

A surprisingly jazzy Arabella label release, for some reason selected to promote Coca Cola for French markets in 1979.

Also Sprach Geoff Love

geoff

Geoff Love Orchestra – Also Sprach Zarathustra

During the sixties bandleader Geoff from GB used work with luminaries like Shirley Bassey. From the seventies on the objective was orchestral albums with themes ranging from Waltzes With Love to Themes For Superheroes, sometimes with touches of disco lite-ness. On this barely recognisable take on the classical thing he kicks ass though as you can hear. – Sorry Russians for the swearing (bad language was offically outlawed from all media there yesterday).

Criss Cross

Duke of Burlington – Criss Cross

Another seriously spaced out dance tune from the French Duke – or is he in fact Italian?

More from the Brazilian troupe. This one from 1977 begins in a Love Unlimited Ork mood before easing into a more European groove.

Footsteps in the Shadows

Kantlose Orchestra and Chorus – Footsteps in the Shadows

Violent people have more outbursts when placed in a room painted with dark colors, yet there was always very little trouble in discothéques. This interesting non-hit got played in some American clubs in late 1975.

Let The Sunshine In

blue

The Vast Majority – Let The Sunshine In

The Vast Majority – McArthur Park

The hallucinogenic dose of Peyote is about 0.3 to 0.5 grams, and its effects last about 12 hours. Far too long to relentlessly keep dancing to disco music…or is it?

Skhumba

Pat Shange - Skhumba

Pat Shange – Skhumba

South Africa ’78. Can’t find much info on this record. Vocals is delivered by South African singer Pat Shange, but i think we should credit the producers Wilson Ndlovu and Phillip Khumalo since it’s the phat sound of the production that does the trick here. The record is released on the South African “Sounds Disco” label.

White Summer Lights

life 66Achab – White Summer Lights

Happy Midsummer! In the picture: Midsummer of 1966 in Porvoo. Models are wearing the latest from Marimekko for Life magazine feature about Finnish design. I hope they found a perfect bonfire to dance at the midnight sun. Unfortunately dj’s didn’t have White Summer Lights (Italy, 1978) back then, even if it sounds so timeless it could have been made in the summer of ’66… well, almost.

I Am Afraid Of Losing You

fitRamasandiran Somusundaram – I Am Afraid Of Losing You

CrossFit is so 2008. The hottest exercise routine for this summer is the OverFit Funky Dance available at the coolest clubs. If you’re feeling funky, but the dj just can’t get you movin’, it’s perfectly alright to ask politely, could you please play something from the Ramasandiran Somusundaram long play and you will live happily ever after.

Steve Bender & Joy Fleming – The Final Thing

So sorry to hear about your boyfriend – if there’s anything I can do… Oh, listen, did you once say you never liked the instrumental or the vocal side of The Final Thing by Steve Bender he got? And you always hated the Joy Fleming version he also has?

montreal

André Mathieu & Victor Vogel – Marche des Athlétes 3

André Mathieu & Victor Vogel – Marche des Athlètes 1

Tracks from the offical album for the 1976 Montréal games. March number 3 sounds like a blaxploitation/action film theme and number 1 is a massive seven minute long showpiece with a cast of thousands.
