  • Weekend-finds + two questions about disco...

    My weekendfins:
    Jumbo '76 -dance to the jumbo '76 -Some tasty Hansa-disco
    Curtis Mayfield -Something to believe in
    A compilation from '82 with tracks by D Train, Mtume, George Duke, ...

    ...and the questions:
    I'm very into early 80's disco lately, what should I look for?

    I'm looking for stuff in the similar style as D Train, Luther Vandross, Tracy Weber, Leon Huff, late Gladys Knight and The Pips, Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack..

    And what's your favourite disco-track?
    This one does it for me:
    Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack -"Back together again" -pure 80's dancefloor filler

      The A-side is not that good, mainly tipical "Hansa-disco". The B-side is a long nice disco-track with 4-5 super funky breakdowns that sounds like it could have been taken form a Blax.-movie.

          It's a wicked record, Bels-O, but it doesn't sound that 80s, really. Does it?

            I like 'Tell Him" or is it "Tell Her", by 80s Ladies. That is the right title right? And I like the Sylvia Striplin LP "Give Me Your Love"

              ...how about the Mary Jane Girls "All Night Long"... ? ? ?

              ( bit of a personal fave, but is it disco ? ? ? )

              will know !

              If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                I'd like to holler at the Clash at this juncture.

                Radio Clash, Mustafa Dance, Magnificient Dance...

                Yes indeed.

                        Funnily enough I was just sorting out some 45s and I moved my copy of this from &#39;funk etc&#39; section to the &#39;disco&#39; section. I always um and ahh over that one. It probably should go in the &#39;hip hop&#39; section. Great record though. I&#39;d like to nominate Indeep&#39;s &#39;Last Night A DJ Saved My Life&#39;. I love that track. Proper funky eighties disco.

                            What about the Cerrone &#39;Love in c minor&#39; lp? this is cinematic widescreen dub disco at it&#39;s finest, and features our very own Mr Hawkshaw on keys. Also worth a quick mention are some of the Qwest recordings from the early eighties in particular the Patti Austin &#39;Every home should have one&#39; lp fine airbrushed disco funk of the highest order. One of my all time fave disco lp&#39;s.
                            And i can thouroughly concurr with Ladyboygrimsby&#39;s fine and ace selection. Word up mate&#33;.

                              Oops. The Cerrone lp is &#39;76 so it&#39;s kinda out of the remit. Sorry&#33;.
