Magic Fly Vocal

jtm-98686468164

A long, long time ago, Jussi posted the terrific B side of this record. But the A side is also a very powerful song!

Joyce – Try Me (1977)

I’m sure you know that this is actually a cover version of Magic Fly, so no need to mention it :)

Pretty Maid Company – Pretty Maid

Deutschland 1976. A perfect beerhall song to celebrate Oktoberfest in merry old Munchen. The slipperiest strings in recorded history. Ein classic (?).

The Spaced Out Disco Session – October 2010

The live broadcast has been a bit rough – the webradio was behaving very badly, but now at least you can enjoy the full rip in all its glory.

Sexation

Barbados Climax – Sexation (1980) -> Discogs

Fat come back ! I’m alive… alive! Disco is still flowing in my veins. I just can’t take it no more, nononoOo! I had to share this  piece.

Stranger than strange: epic intro, DAMN funky groove, weird song and a lil’ spanish touch for the latin lovers. That’s just a magic receipe for me. Nothing else to say. (Yeah! in fact I’m a cheesy lover I must admit it)

The Unnamed Avenger Minimix

tuam-17514997534485843515431

Various Artists – The Unnamed Avenger Minimix (right click to save)

It’s short, it’s crude, it’s freaky, the tempo is way too fast… but it contains lots of essential nuggets. The set starts in the streets of Delhi, and ends up somewhere at the borders of the Milkyway. (more…)

Donga Donga

LFO-modulated bassdrums, hissing hi hats, Syndrum pings aplenty, catchy melody, off-key bass riff, over the top vocal duet: everything is here! Even the official dance moves.

The following copy is made from a VCD made from a VHS: you know what to expect – but it’s still the best rip around, by far.

K. Chakravarthy – Donga Donga (Movie Edit) (1985)

The full soundtrack album had been properly released, but who knows where the very few copies left are hidden right now… The movie version above is identical with the album version, except for the first 10s.
