Vetrina Di Hit Parade

Back after a god knows how long offline period with a promise. And a hit. Ofcourse everybody in the multiverse knows it but how about this version by The Droogs (if I remember right)? The tune is taken from Vetrina Di Hit Parade Vol.10 and the sleeve doesn’t offer any artist info. In any case, you know what you should do until your soles glow like mine. It’s saturday!

One More Mission (Another Version)

Quinn Martin – One More Mission (Another Version)

No hope I’m afraid, I know we can’t be saved, No peace in my mind, Till I find what’s behind. Just one more mission.

As some of my 11 fans already know, I’ve a very soft spot for Italo. This relatively rare 12″ cover version of the Rockets classic touches the all right spots with dark lyrics and bounding bass. In the picture decaying remains of club Ultimo Impero in Airasca, Italy.

Gluck Track

Gluck Track – Love Concert

Do we really need another version of Tchaikovsky’s piano concert number one? Yes if it’s this good, if it’s produced By Detto Mariano and if it comes with a triumphant chicken noise intro.

Thorleifs

Thorleifs – American Generation

Strapping bunch of Swedes take on the Ritchie Family summer classic. As my H1 got low battery this was recorded with the old Iriver for inferior sound quality.

Queen Of Night

Magic – Queen Of Night

“It was okay to be desperate, to be tender, to sit alone or share the company of others. There was a great warmth and tolerance in this destitute setting.” – Anders Petersen on Café Lehmitz.

Gruzia: Iveria

Gruzia: Iveria

You must celebrate the 1st of May with the comrade workers of the Soviet Republic of Gruzia. Here’s your flight ticket (one way).
The group is apparently called Iveria. After the rousing, heroic opening number keep dancing to the (un)related music that follows.

Gruppe Loreley

Gruppe Loreley – Loreley

The beautiful Loreley sits on the cliff above the Rhine river in Germany. She combs her golden hair and distracts shipmen with her song, causing them to crash on the rocks. This was documented in Amando de Ossorio’s 1974 film Las Garras de Loreley / Loreley’s Grasp in which the siren was portrayed by the wonderful Helga Line.

The 1977 track has seductive power as well, luring you thru the Munich-style intro into it’s schlager inferno within 35 seconds.

Здравствуй, Песня

Я Жду Тебя

Венера

Огонь Мы Любим Диско

According to Soviet authorities jazz is a Russian invention. Disco must be, too. Here’s their grandiose take on Io Sono Sempre Quello Que, a great version of the Biddu production Disco Fever with the word fever correctly pronounced as FE-VAH, and a driving interpretation of the classic tune Venus.

Fly

Gate Number 7 – Fly

If there is an offical anthem for the mile high club this could be it. To join you need to have sexual intercourse while on board a flying airplane. Of course the mile high is not an offical club as such, it’s something that people bring up after a few drinks: “oh, last weekend flying back from Torremolinos, know what happened? She was a stewardess, too. I quess that makes me a gold member of the club, right?”

There’s also a vocal dinner disco version by Tony Pacino but this is the one to fly with.

Sensación Melancólica

Carlos Cutaia Orquesta – Sensación Melancólica

I almost accidentally on purpose entered some deep and sarcastic one-liners here in order to express something I’m not even thinking. Meaning blaah, just listen, it’s good, it’s rare and plays well with Corn Flakes – Sing 12″ if you want to intensify misery.

Thé a la Menthe

Thé a la Menthe – Tahrala

Thé a la Menthe – Lubanga

Finally some ululation disco! Ululation is shrill high-pitched vocal sound produced by a movement of the tongue, practiced in Morocco and thereabouts and even in parts of Spain. Here the thing is done by three experts with shaved armpits in a setting straight out of a James Bidgood fantasy. Pierre & Gilles and David LaChapelle fans should be pleased too. The b-side is more folk-ish but still rhythmic enough for a quick Guedra, the national dance of Tuaregs and Berbers.
(Want more of Tahrala? Check my latest mix in Soundcloud).

Set On Fire

Loukas Thanos – Set On Fire

Hey you behind the camera! Please remember that objectifying is all right only if there’s a mutual agreement. In the picture dancefloor action from Paris in 1985. Greek cult tune with a seductive bassline and easy to sing-along lyrics sure can set carefully curated floors on fire in 2017. Track is so good and delicious to mix that it makes one wonder was it played bitd. It might as well been totally dismissed until the current years. No need for anachronistic over-interpretation even if the track sounds as irresistible as this one.

You’re just the same

International Power – You’re just the same

This German Private recording from ’78 sounds and smells exactly as rare as it is. Could have been recorded in one of the guys bedroom or in the garage with a cheap drum kit and a Moog synthesizer. We will never know but we will dance our ass off to it with waving hands in the air!

Kevin Harrison – Fly

“Please know I’m quite aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.” – Amelie Earhart.

Introduction

Tom Scherpenzeel – Introduction

It is important that after the guests have been introduced to each other the hostess should undress and disco-dance in a very sexy manner.
