Isle Of Lesbos

ghiol-1819186773313636Gerhard Heinz – Isle Of Lesbos (1978)

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.

Arabian Song

Eartha Kitt – Arabian Song

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.

Poncho Pueblo – El Bimbo

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.

All Along The Watchtower

panopticonBuffalo – All Along The Watchtower

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.

Primitive Desire

Primitive Desire

Tracks extremely hot six or seven years ago when this recording was made during a gig. Contains long versions of Eastbound Expressway’s fierce Primitive Desire, Delicate Jan by Azoto, Johnny Guitar by Slang and the anthemic Dream Machine by Disco Dream and the Androids – which absolutely has to be heard in full – plus some Discocross and a bit of Yma Sumac.

Arabian Melody

R-6074623-1410384951-9431

There has been a bit of an oriental theme on the blog lately, and it continues here with this 1972 stomper by Pop Concerto Orchestra, guaranteed to give your harem keeper a hard time. And…was “Arabian Melody” the inspiration for Elias Rahbani’s “Liza…Liza”? I can spot a few similarities. B-side has its qualities as well.

Deesco

Rick Dees has taken a lot of flack from purists, and his Disco Duck record has even been pointed out as one of the reasons for the Disco Demolition event. I personally don’t think all that hate is justified, because if you look around you can see that he has a larger disco output than that one gimmicky record, and the quality of some of it proves that he must have taken what he was doing seriously. At least to some extent. Ok, no further need to glorify the man….here is an example of what i’m talking about.

Rick Dees – You Got Those Lips (Instrumental)

And just for the record, I would rather put on the Disco Duck than a Gloria Gaynor record – anytime.

The Korva Selection

danskin

Prime Force – The Korva Selection

Prime Force – Disco Lady

What does a Korva selection contain? The British track from 1978 has a polished, soundtrack-ey feel to it and it’s indeed supposed to have something to do with a film score. The message in Disco Lady is more clear though the tune could do with some radical editing, like leaving everything out but the wicked synths.
