Summer mix

Summer mix by Jussi

This one clocks 46 minutes and kicks off with Jackie Robinson’s Moving Like A Superstar, played using 2 long versions. Then it’s on to stuff like Bob-A-Rela: Spend The Night, classic holiday moods like Disco Instrumental: Mexico, Crackers: Superbimbo, Rudy Stone: Bump Your Baby and Desirée: Mi Amore. Plus Paisano by Tschou Tschou Combo. At one point it goes for some reason into a suitably bombastic disco version by Button Down Brass of Avenues And Alleyways, the theme from the cult tv show The Protectors. – As always, nothing but real vinyl here with no CAA (computer aided anything).

Funky Voodoo

Spaghetti Head – Funky Voodoo

There are traditionally two pairs of drums in the Vaudou ceremony, the Ti Baka and the Gwo Baka (ti and gwo are from the French Petit and Gros). The beating of these instruments unleashes spirits of sensuality and death, coaxing virgins to give themselves willingly to the dark god Baron Samedi during initiation rituals such as seen in the picture.

Toner Fra Himlen

Ole Hoyers Chorus And Orchestra – Toner Fra Himlen

A Danish entry from 1978, translating as Tunes From Heaven. This kinda has the feel of a much slowed down Mare by Le Figlie Del Vento.

More Chocolate

MML-Chocolate

Copies of this 1979 sleazebomb from Japan seem to be extremely hard to get. For this reason the whole track must be presented intact here now, as a contribution to society.

Sofia

In my opinion Sofia Rotaru was the most beautiful singer in Soviet Union in 70s. She made her best records in 70s too.

Here’s dramatic disco-funk standart “Temp” (“Tempo” in  Russian, 1979) with irreproachable arrangements:

Sofia Rotaru – Temp

And this is her soul side: heartstopper “Lebedinaya Vernost'” (“Swans Fidelity”, 1974). Each time I listen to this song I can’t hold back the tears.

Blue Night

Blue Night – Turn Me Loose My Design

1983. The full long version is probably the best ever italo track. That amazing poster for David Lynch’s Blue Velvet has nothing to do with the music, nor with the film as the picture has got no bondage scene like that anywhere. Still, probably one of the very best or at least one of the weirdest posters ever.
