The Valleys

valleys

Apollo 100 – The Valleys

Another fab tune connected in no way with the immortal Russ Meyer classic – which contains one of the most important lines in cinema history: YOU WILL DRINK THE BLACK SPERM OF MY VENGEANCE! – apart from a word in it’s title and an overall mood of loungey grooviness. Had the film been made just a few years later this is what the music heard during the party scenes would have sounded like.

Į Dieną Einam

Į Dieną EinamTeisutis Makačinas – Į Dieną Einam

Lithuanian disco classic (1982) will not forgive if you’ve skipped cardio sessions. Then again, what could be a better way to workout than dancing in euphoria to high speed euro disco?

The Last Inca

adrian

This record has really grown on me over the years, but in the beginning I only kept it for the great artwork, and because of its overall theme. It is, in fact, a concept album, built around the idea of ancient astronaut influence on Inca civilization. The front sleeve shows a flying saucer parked on the Nazca lines, and an extensive booklet provides more details about the hypothesis. Music to conjure UFO’s with, indeed.

Harlequin

harlequin-1980-robert-powell

There are many differences between Sweden and Denmark, one of the big ones being the ability to create disco tracks like they did in Southern Europe. To be fair, most of the album sounds a lot like low quality ABBA, but its worth getting it just for Harlequin – Oui, Mon Amour

Look At The Girl

Like a French Demis Roussos, Jacky J. sang primarily for the women. But here’s one for the guys, too.

Coming & Going

valledelagrimas

Antonio Carlos Jobim – Coming & Going

Antonio Carlos Jobim, one of the most noted Brazilian musicans, the composer of “The Girl from Ipanema”, in icon of cool, did he really do something like this? A few snatches of the stuff was heard in a muted form in the 1970 film The Adventureres but the track itself was never included in the offical, internationally realesed soundtrack. Here it is now, in it’s fully audible, uncensored glory!

HipoCampeliFantoCamelos

SDC15272_brighter

Hippo….phantom camels?

You can practice all you want…before you know it the song is over, and you’re none the wiser about to this cryptic artist name. What is certain is that HipoCampeliFantoCamelos were a French project, and that this song appeared on a 7″ as well as a mini-album, both from 1975.

The sound sample is from the middle part of the the album version, showing several qualities and a nice break.

Who is he? (Jesus Goes Funky)

026-discoJesus

The natural reaction here would (and should) be: “oh no, Jesus disco, really??”. But I think you will agree that it ain’t all that bad. In fact its quite groovy. And after all, if even Jesus can get down, there’s still hope for mankind.

Abu Ali

abualiZiad Rahbani – Abu Ali

There is something so absurdly discouraging in living in Finland in November that you should definitely try it. Anyone can lose hope and enthusiasm of better tomorrow in this endless darkness. It feels like escapism is de rigueur to survive. This dreamy lysergic soundscape from 1978 (Lebanon/Greece) is my drug of choice. I want to escape to those dark warm nights of late August. Maybe a weekend with the chosen few at the cottage. Psychedelic light projections in the forest. Sauna all the night. Quality absinthe and talk, talk, talk. Dancing to the full version of Abu Ali at 5.37 ante meridiem. Only 270 days.

Erotico Mistico

erotico mistico picEnnio Morricone – Erotico Mistico

Nixxon posted the amazing disco mix of Come Maddalena. Tune so beautiful, that I remember crying for the first 27 times I heard it. I can resist everything but temptation to post one of my all time faves from the original 1971 soundtrack. I’ve played Erotico Mistico a couple of times as an opening track. Naturally it’s been played for your aural pleasure, but also to make a point. Please don’t bother to ask for the usual club hits. Still, there will always be people, who think I should own the popular stuff and what’s even more disturbing – play them in public. Unsurprisingly I’ve been deeply in the underground with my records.
