Twangy 1981 disco from everybody’s favourite surf band.
Jarre tune gets in shape. This 1978 version is from Argentina.
As a part of the Collection Les Classiques, Overfitting Disco launches a new interpretation of the classic French mix.
This aromatic sonic fragrance contains spicy accords enriched with warm, deep, woody notes of Cannabis Sativa. Subtle, playful citrus and used condom bring an elegant and sensual side to the composition.
Once past the final gate to madness this is what will hopefully greet me – the Sound and the Vision.
“Kismet” has already been presented here as part of a classic mix by Oki but the sleeve has not been displayed. So here goes, better late than never.
This has a wholesome, clean cowboy feel to it. Here they are riding under the vast clear skies of Texas, arriving to spend the night in a farmhouse with panoramic views of the surrounding peaks.
“Those concerned with orchestral music are as a rule of the opinion that the process of maturing takes in the case of a big orchestra usually at least a few years of systematic work. But sometimes it is not so and an early success the newly-founded group has achieved, the excellent notices on its concerts upset all pre-conceived theories. This was precisely the case with the Entertainment Orchestra of Polish Radio and Television in Poznań, whose development proved very dynamic and spontaneous indeed.
It made its first recordings early in 1977. Being the youngest orchestra in this country, made up of freshly qualified graduates of Polish higher schools of music, it found itself, only after a few months of activities, on the two major festival platforms of Opole and Sopot. From the very start their enthusiasm and ambition prevailed over their lack of experience and their whole repertoire consisted of pieces written by the Young Poznań composers: Zbigniew Górny, Stanislaw Bartosik, Krzesimir Debski, Bogdan Jarmolowicz, Piotr Kaluzny and Janusz Piqtkokski.
Their cooperation with this big ochestral group provides them with the possibility of many-sided practice, as they can arrange, conduct and record their own pieces. Tens of their compositions and orchestral recordings have also been bought by foreign music publishers and record companies in the FRG, Great Britain and USA.
Now, three years after its foundation, the Orchestra is well-known to radio listeners and television viewers both at home and abroad. They owe this popularity to their recordings of around 300 pieces, their appearances in numerous radio and television programmes, with the most popular among them The Music of the Small Screen, as well as their three cassettes released by the Wifon company. One of these cassettes was done in cooperation with the British company London Weekend Television.
The style of the Orchestra is a resultant of the tastes and tendencies of its group of composers. That is why its repertoire is also diverse. You can find in it, along with disco and funky rhythms, numbers typical of jazz big bands, as well as arrangements of pop and classical music standards. But what is common to all its recordings is a modern approach to arrangement, wide range of instruments, precision in playing and a wish to achieve a distinctive sound of their own. In the realization of these qualities the orchestra is helped by the sound engineers, Ryszard Gloger and Zenon Wolinski.
The Orchestra’s appearances at the Intervision festivals jointly with such celebrities as Gary Brooker, The Temptations, Linda Lewis, Drupi, Dream Express has proved the Poznań group’s ability to reproduce the best qualities of their studio recordings before audiences as well.
This record début is an attempt to recapitulate synthetically both the creative and performing capacity of this very young but already mature Orchestra.” (From the sleeve notes of Poznańska Orkiestra Rozrywkowa PR I TV LP, Polskie Nagrania Muza, 1978).
What else i have to say? Nothing except that i am falling in love with Polish disco.
A6 (from Strawinski Firebird) – Poznańska Orkiestra Rozrywkowa PR I TV – Ognisty Ptak
Driving at 120 bpm and the fashionistas on the floor move freely. What next? Can’t kill the groove with the amazingly trippy Folk Sinteza. It mixes beautifully with about anything alike.
There’s a level in-between dreams and reality. In that subconscious state you can get in contact with your biggest fears and passions. Some say ketamine can bring you there, but i will not encourage you to try it out. Maybe what you believe is in-between reality and dreams, in fact is a secret floor between life and death. And who says you can find the escape door when you’re there?
Another fantastic Llobell production here. While the song starts fairly innocent but monster nonetheless, it eventually flips into orgiastic kosmische madness with Susana doing what she does… faking(?) climax. Full clip attached for evidence.
If anybody possesses this tape cassette only release, PLEASE get in touch!
“The fire inside me don’t fade away
The smoke dances around the room
Never again to see the light of day
And the darkness starts to consume
The dance comes close to an end
And the light flickers out
They say that I did condescend
As the devil twirled me about”
– Elizabeth Wurstel. The music is an improved version of the Cozy Powell tune, made in 1974.
