All past flea market mix-sets are still here.
Italy 1975. Miseria is a strange version of A Far L’Amore Comincia Tu, the Raffaella Carra tune heard during the party scenes of the excellent and visually extremely luscious La Grande Bellezza (2013) by Paolo Sorrentino, from which the image is from. The a-side Ballerino is the definitive take on Georgie Dann’s Campesino, one of the all-time package holiday disco classics.
The theme from a San Francisco-set police action film from 1973, the kind they just cannot manage anymore. The recent A Walk Among the Tombstones with Liam Neeson tried it’s best but while not a failure by any means, it still wasn’t bleak, grimy and brutal enough.
Previously unreleased soundtrack of the movie “Die Insel der tausend Freuden” and now pressed in limited quantities by Private Records.
The whole OST is really pretty solid.
Note: this specific track does actually only appear for a few very short seconds (!) in the movie, no more.
Will Little Maggie get away. Who’s she running from? Unfortunately i don’t have the answer but i really like this Spanish production from the ’79 Beans album by the duo Sergio y Estibaliz. Thanks to Tansing for sharing this with me
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.
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.
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.
