You’re invited to a hot night of forbidden sex with Tunisian actress Claudia Cardinale. Don’t worry we won’t tell your wife.
One among many fine tunes from the TV serie “Das unsichtbare visier” LP. Released on the DDR label Amiga in
the year ’79
South Africa ’78. Can’t find much info on this record. Vocals is delivered by South African singer Pat Shange, but i think we should credit the producers Wilson Ndlovu and Phillip Khumalo since it’s the phat sound of the production that does the trick here. The record is released on the South African “Sounds Disco” label.
Happy Midsummer! In the picture: Midsummer of 1966 in Porvoo. Models are wearing the latest from Marimekko for Life magazine feature about Finnish design. I hope they found a perfect bonfire to dance at the midnight sun. Unfortunately dj’s didn’t have White Summer Lights (Italy, 1978) back then, even if it sounds so timeless it could have been made in the summer of ’66… well, almost.
A masseur, or masseuse, is always right! Say that to yourself over and over while you are lying on the bench, being crushed by those unrelenting hands. To convince yourself even more, listen to this one during treatment.
Belo Horizonte is one of the lesser known host cities of this years World Cup, an event that always manages to spark interest among even the least sporty people (myself included). But if for some reason football doesn’t do anything for you, give this one a try instead. In any case, check it out.
CrossFit is so 2008. The hottest exercise routine for this summer is the OverFit Funky Dance available at the coolest clubs. If you’re feeling funky, but the dj just can’t get you movin’, it’s perfectly alright to ask politely, could you please play something from the Ramasandiran Somusundaram long play and you will live happily ever after.
So sorry to hear about your boyfriend – if there’s anything I can do… Oh, listen, did you once say you never liked the instrumental or the vocal side of The Final Thing by Steve Bender he got? And you always hated the Joy Fleming version he also has?
Tracks from the offical album for the 1976 Montréal games. March number 3 sounds like a blaxploitation/action film theme and number 1 is a massive seven minute long showpiece with a cast of thousands.
What is the solution? Should we reassert our authority and instruct Brigitt about God’s view of sex, to flee fornication just as Joseph did in the Old Testament? Or, should trust the media to guide her? First thing in any case is to have Brigitt describe everything to us, in minute detail, then we must ask her to strip, completely.
The track is a cheap & cheerful cover of the Sheila tune, and French of course.
Attention boys and girls everywhere! To fight a global criminal empire known as CRIME the ISSIS, the International Science Special-Investigation Squad, is formed. Daisuke Kujirai, commander of the Tokyo branch – codename JOKER – turns four recruits into cryogenically sustained cyborgs with energy manipulation powers to destroy the criminal organisation.
The instrumental version of the short-lived but apparently eternally remembered television show has been posted here a few years back but not until now have I found the offical vocal one.
Here is a mix of strictly Turkish-related songs, made in collaboration with the mysterious Turkish entity known only as Çerikunda, while I was in Istanbul. Few know more about Turkish 70’s stuff than IT does, but I did manage to bring some new stuff and input to the table. Super many thanks to Çerikunda for hospitality, knowledge and supreme effort. Enjoy
HAKUJITSUMU aka Daydream from 1964 is one of the defining masterpieces of Pinku Eiga, the Pink Cinema, meaning Japanese films with adult content. A wide variety of subgenres fall under the pink umbrella, from softcore sex films (roman poruno), girl gang epics (sukeban films) or violent exploitation in general (a.k.a. pinky violence). From enraged nuns on rampage to homicidal schoolgirls to yakuzas hellbent on revenge, any exploitable element got used during the 60s and 70s heyday of the genre, often spiced with strong S/M sex.
There are several versions of Hakujitsumu but the original directed By Tetsuji Takechi remains the best and the most elegantly perverse. The story focuses on the increasingly lurid experiences of a woman patient under sedation in a dentist’s office. But is she really dreaming?
Above, the original poster. The image below has nothing to do with the film itself. Check it out.
The music contains snatches of The Swan Lake over a sleazy grinding rhythm.
Kai Warner’s ‘Fly Butterfly’ got a huge revival a few years back, with cover versions of the song being discovered from many different countries. It must have been a really big hit in Turkey too, ’cause i have found several interpretations without even looking particularly hard for it. The most well-known is of course Ajda Pekkan’s ‘Baksana Talihe’, but she also did a French version of it that isn’t entirely without qualities. Neither of the versions’ lyrics seem to have much in common with the original, but this is quite typical of Turkish cover songs from the 70’s.
Classic of the month. Chaba Fadela is the premier Algerian actress and all around Diva. She’s married to Cheb Sahraoui with whom she recorded N’Sel Fik (You Are Mine) in 1983. The track became an international cult hit and sparked a worldwide interest in raï music.
