Sources of Power Edit

It was relatively tedious but I’ve finally managed to extend my previous very short edit and turn all those various tiny snippets into one 8-minute-long monster edit. Additional production kept to the bare minimum. Enjoy.

John Fiddy & Sammy Burdson – Sources Of Power (Okay Edit) (?/2011)

Moonraker


Shirley Bassey – Moonraker (instr&vocal)
It’s the Pride Week here, and I’ll be spinning at the main gala on Saturday night http://helsinkipride.fi/index.php?id=15. There’ll be diamond hard electronic cuts, “Safari Of Love” by Miro, lots of midtempo euro stuff with violins and moaning girls plus soundtracks like this epic 1977 Diva thing that turns into a disco glamourama half way thru. All you Flaming Creatures, start choreographing the grand entrance.

Quando Caliente El Sol


Esmeralda – Quando Caliente El Sol
Red Face – Stay Where The Music Is
The 1st track is from 1976 and can be found on a couple of French compliation lps like “Disco Sound Orchestral”. The 2nd came out a year later. Both will take you to the beach. So, enough of this rain – give us a long hot breeze, wet sand, mysterious semi-tropical fauna and bacchanalian after hours. Oh, weather report says it’ll be +29 by Wednesday. All right, then.

Kahlua


Percy Faith – Kahlua
Dj Anssi called and said the Porsche is here now and he could take me for a ride. So off we went, gliding along the Helsinki seashore in this gleaming dream machine, past the sidewalk cafes, making heads turn and jaws drop. As the music played and the powerful machine purred beneath my legs I imagined I was George Lazenby in In Her Majesty’s Secret Service, the best ever Bond film. So, this sleek sexy go-go track is for you, Porsche, my unobtainable object of desire.

Midnight City


Disco Gold – Midnight City
Obscure stuff from god knows where, the 7″ prints no country of origin.

Fantasy Girl


Stephen Schlaks – Fantasy Girl
Dancing Blue
Dance With Me
Bobby Solo – Love Is Burning
3 madly arranged tracks from an Italian mor instrumentalist. This stuff kicks off where most disco tunes reach their peak, rising higher and higher into unhinged overdrive. Fantasy Girl needs to be heard from the full 12″ version, not the album one.
Bobby “Una Lacrima Sul Viso” Solo gets a slower groove going with Love is Burning, with similarly ott results.

Mi Cerebro


Pedro Maria Sanchez – Mi Cerebro
Pedro Maria Sanchez – Un Dia Mas
Spain 1978. This guy began as a child actor and went on to appear in such recent cult faves as “23 Centimetros” with Rossy DePalma.

Vracho Vracho


Olympic Union And The Athenians – Vracho Vracho
Olympic Union And The Athenians – Dirlada
What is this compulsion for music from imaginary package holiday destinations, all made at Musikland Studios of Munchen? I cannot promise to stop this but at least my next post will be a more sensible one.

Combo’s Club


Combo’s Club – Eso Es El Amor
Bee Zee Band – Discolero
Two tunes with an overpowering package holiday flavour. The first has great raw vocals and the 2nd is a less known version of the Ravel classical piece.

A couple from Max


Max Berlin’s – Dance For My
Elle Et Moi
Yes, it does say “Dance For My” and not “Dance For Me” on the sticker. “Elle Et Moi” is a dj Hell fave.

Great Battle

Everyone saw classic rasta-movie “Rockers” or, at least, this snippet with a battle between Soul Music and Roots Rock Reggae:

A name of the winning song isn’t much interesting for visitors of this blog (just in case, this is The Jays and  Ranking Trevor’s “Queen Majesty”).

Second place is taken by acid-disco track (in style of Horse Meat Disco) “Get On Up (Get On Down)” (1978) of Roundtree:

Hot Glass


Hot Glass – C’est L’Amour
The singer sounds like he’s wearing a flashy three-piece suit and has his hair laquered in layers like Claude Francois. Still, this track flows quite effortlessly in a posh Costandinos kind of fashion. I don’t slip a lot of this kind of sound into the mix but maybe tomorrow night at the terrace of the MBar in Helsinki, why not.

Ganges Delta


Okko Bekker – Ganges Delta
From the 1971 German album Sitar & Electronics, essential in dissolving perceptual boundaries to explore your body/mind consciousness and nurturing an atmosphere where authentic spiritual communication and levitation becomes possible. Before dancing to Okko all day long take a ritual sunrise bath, preferably in the holy waters of river Ganga.
