Good Time Girl

Burano and his Gypsie Caravan – Good Time Girl

When this girl enter the room everyone will have a good time. Lots of sound bending and other kinds of synth freakout on this French moog monster from ’73.

Bionic Bustle

Andre_the_giant_as_Bigfoot

This one is not for the saxophone squirmish. But if you are the type of person who can appreciate the controversial instrument on some occasions, this might very well be one of them. B-side of Bionic Man 7″, made in the UK in 1976 during the height of success of the Six Billion Dollar Man TV-series (a show which featured the recurring character of Bigfoot, yay).

Do it again

card-Hat-trick

Freak party disco from the German construct known as Hat-Trick, which at some point were involved with the great Horst Lubitz (or the other way around). Not on this one it appears, but even if the group didn’t score a hat-trick of hits, Do It Again (1979) will make you do it again…and again…and again.

El Nino Americano

36

El Chato is always a guarantee of Spanish guitarissimo, but this one sounds like two very different songs were merged into one, giving a strange but nice hybrid disco result. B-side of El Porompopero 7″, 1978.

Colours of summer

amazeing_sunset_by_murraymullet-d36hbzr

Summertime is near, which of course means holidays, parties and festivals. But sometimes its also great to just lie in the grass with your strawhat on, while gazing at some ancient monuments or the sun setting over the ocean…and listening to tunes like this.

I Want Your Body

299087098347056478360897Irina – I Want Your Body

Sure you got a tweaked 440 Six Pack, Pistol Grip four speed and Sure Grip rear end geared for high 11s on the strip, but… Irina just wants your body! Tax scam disco classic is as desirable as a vintage R/T Challenger, only much much cheaper.

The Sand Flowers

The Sand Flowers – Sahara Casino

The Sand Flowers – Pacific Grapefruit

When i heard Carlo’s birthday mix this year, i was laying very cosy on the couch enjoying his italian vibes when suddenly i was pulled up on the floor, moving my arms, hips and legs in mysterious ways that could only have been seen at a mushroom eating gipsy party. The track was Sahara Casino by the French group (project) The Sand flowers. Of course i had to get this ’74 record immediately. To my surprise the flip side was also a bomb!

Santamaria De Portugal

Portugal

Albatros ‎– Santamaria De Portugal

Nice tune from the Italian Albatros guys. Very cool arpeggio driven synths floating in between the drums, chants and horns. Maybe not as good as the stop stop violence that came out a year before this, but i definitely think it belongs in the archive

Disco Guitars

LeBaron Disco-Go – Disco Guitars

Anita – Lady Bump

Track one is the elusive LeBaron track missing from the database until now, made in Finland in 1980.

Track two confirms that Anita made a disco record. Anita who? Anita the girl who was my one-time babysitter when I was a small child, that’s who. She lived almost next door to us and came over when my parents went off to night clubs or generally out wherever. The vivacious and full-bodied girl soon decided to become a singer and proceeded to record a massive local hit called Sormet Pois! (No Fingering!). Naturally, to promote the sleazy song she posed topless in the then best selling tabloid magazine, holding her boobs in her hands for all to see. An instant success, she was gradually transformed into a national institution and remains a popular schlager act today.

Studio One Los Angeles Mix

studio one

Studio One, Los Angeles Mix

Sounds played thirty seven years ago, the week of April the 18th to 23th 1977 at Studio One disco at 652 North LaPeer Drive in West Hollywood Los Angeles. According to Vince Aletti’s book, dj Paul Dougan listed the German record Jungle People by Soulful Dynamics as one of the hottest tracks. Also popular in clubs that week and included in the mix: the brilliant disco exotica number O Ba Ba by D.C LaRue, the seven minute version of Ritchie Family’s Lady Luck, the non-remixed original version of Kings of Clubs by The Chocolats, the David Todd remix of Faith, Hope & Charity’s You’re My Peace Of Mind, etc.

They used vinyls only in 1977 just like we do now at Overfitting Disco, of course.

1515 – Cracker Jax

Eerie beats and dramatic chants from France. Judging by the fab flyer glued to the sleeve this was spinned at the Kafka club in Geneve.
