Mia Martini

Mia Martini – Corazon

Mia may not have been too well known outside Italy but her 15 minutes of widespread fame arrived in 1977 when she took part in the Eurovision contest. One year after that she felt compelled to flash her assets in Playboy Italia, following the example of most female singers in her country around that time.

This 1974 track is a rare one, not listed in most databases at all.

Barbarella – Queen of Love

Queen of Love by Barbarella (aka Eva Mango) was always interesting but try the 1980 track slowed down as if on horse tranquilizer.

A 1975 disco version of Autumn Leaves – another one of them – doesn’t groan under deep melancholia.

Paul Mauriat – Jesahel

Yesterday’s youthful revolutionaries turn to today’s businessmen – but not always. Occasionally, Paul did the opposite.

Лето без тебя как зима (1979)

From what I could understand, back in 1979, Mother Russia decided to eulogize some of its major architectonic achievements through some funky disco tunes in a small konzert-film. Mikhail Boyarskiy and some friends constituted the guest appearance. One of the sweet soft disco tunes involved concerned Mikhail cruising around some beautifully desertic architectonic landscapes. What the song is about, I really couldn’t tell, but this guy sure is a  stylish motherfunker.

Soul Dontac

Exif_JPEG_PICTURE

Valentine Kaneko – b-side

Valentine Kaneko – Soul Dontac

The Soul Dontac is a Japanese disco dance – the flip of the sleeve of the 7″ has a tiny illustration of a simple series of moves: step back with your right foot, step back with your left foot, step to the right side with the right, step to the right side with the left, shake your hips, jump into the start position. To make sure you get it right there’s also something like 1400 words on how to perform the thing. It’s highly unlikely that anyone ever did the Soul Dontac in public, though.

The real action is once again on the b-side.

Adults Only / Solo Per Adulti

Maria Sole – Bestia

Maria Sole – Regné Gnené Gnené

Maria Sole – Sono A Far Pipi

Even though all records here are from our own collections – we never download anything – the views expressed in them do not necessarily reflect the views of the bloggers. Still, we must bring even the most potentailly offensive tracks to your attention. It is our duty to report and to serve.

Maria Sole aka Mara Vittoria Solinas is an Italian singer, actress and a performance artist, along the lines of Barbara Markay whose “It’s Allrite to Fuck All Nite” was posted here earlier. Whereas Barbara promoted light carefree sexuality, Maria had a far weirder agenda. Regné Gnené Gnené is apparently harmless family entertainment but Bestia should be approached with caution. The records are from 1979, as is the tune about peeing.

K. Pythacunthapuserectus – Voodoo Ju Ju Obsession

One the top five names for a disco act. Importantly however, the K. Pythacunthapuserectus track from France doesn’t disappoint voodoo-wise, either.
