Kraan – Die Maschine

Krautrock monster from 1975 moving like a disco dancer. Play loud for maximum destruction.

El Bimbo The Ken Cayre mix

Georgie Dann – El Bimbo (disco mix)

Both the Bimbo Jet version and this one, the instrumental disco version on Salsoul, were massive all over New York in 1974-75. Ken Cayre was one of the three Cayre brothers who founded the label.

Flamenco Salsa

charo

Charo – Flamenco Salsa

The grooviest from the legendary cuchi-cuchi girl. Not to be confused with her “Salsa” which is great as well but not as hardhitting as this.

Wallace Collection

wallace

Wallace Collection – Strings Disco

The Wallace Collection is a prestigious art museum in England. That fact obviously compelled the Belgian makers of this 1981 album to really think about the cover. The music itself is fittingly regal, with grand movements composed according to the sonata principle.

Jack-Knife

russell-crowe-as-jackknife-in-the-man-with

Progressive/kraut rock track with seriously funky elements (due to it being a Billy Boy Arnold cover), made by some of the top studio musicians of Germany at the time. This one could go down equally well with both discofreaks and bikers. Or maybe I just wish it would.

Train Stuff

mtm-slide

The forgettable 1977 movie Joyride, starring Robert Carradine, has a pretty horrible main soundtrack by ELO. However, it also contains one high octane gem that can drive the dance floor crazy with a bit of timing. Trust me, I’ve tried it.

Ride Me High

dragster1J.J. Cale – Ride Me High

Playing for petrol heads, rock freaks and disco hipsters? If you dare to try and have the timing spot on, you can get them all riding high with this one and nobody bothers to point out that they hated it long before it was passé.

Twilight Asylum

Oscar – Twilight Asylum

You can imagine all these British rock singers giving in around 1976, washing their hair and going out to check out a disco. Man, it was crazy, what’s going on?!

Elektra

elektra 1Zdenka Kovacicek – Elektra

First time I heard this I felt unreal warmth and consolation. A tune so amazingly good it feels like you could program your dreams into desired directions. It’s impossible to think that I could ever loose that connection with this tune, even though I’ve heard it about 3214 times (Yugoslavia, 1978).

Dis Go Dis Way

Mother’s Finest – Dis Go Dis Way, Dis Go Dat Way (1977)

It sounds like a cut-up edit, but it is not, it is the original version.

Manila Sound

fango 7Orchestra Fango – Manila Sound

I was busy being a child in the 70s and had no chance to check the disco action in Manila – must have been hot according to the Orchestra Fango (B-side, Italy, 1977).
