    Featuring the legendary Jocelyn Brown.

    You're probably right - it's not really disco as in the George McCrae, Gloria Gaynor type of music. I guess for me, when disco seemed to fade away, I then hooked onto the likes of Carol Jiani, Shalamar, Lime, Sylvester and so on. Music to dance to - I'm not too bothered about the naming genre, so long as it's enjoyable, cheerful, upbeat, and causes me to move spontaneously.

    what was fun about the Bus Stop is the way the entire floor was in sync while facing the same direction and on cue all changing direction together .

    Hey thanks for that gordyhunk, I get you. And I can certainly get behind some Shalamar!!

    People still do it today, modified of course and it now goes by the generic name of "The Hustle". I remember we all would do the "Bus Stop" when I was in high school similar to what was seen in the film "Saturday Night Fever".

    What was that song Lulu had out in around 1981? It was a big hit in America.

    I like to load up a bunch of albums and homemade comps from my music collection onto a USB and play them in the car.

    While driving home this morning from a night of music, women, and a couple of obnoxious drunk people, I decided to play The Andrea True Connection album "More More More". As many of you may know, forum (or former forum member) Tom Moulton exquisitely mixed this fine music created by Gregg Diamond and sang by 70s porno actress Andrea True as a creative way of getting her money out of Jamaica. It's perfect music to drive to with its long instrumental orchestrations. Especially hypnotic to me are the swirling and intense strings. The whole album is like a cross between elaborate disco arrangements, and cheesy porno film music. But, it works.

    Listen to the album and see if you agree. "Party Line" is my favorite. Check out the instrumental part starting at 3:24

    Hey soulster, I never really knew the background to that song, so thank you! I was never a massive fan of the track either (I think it might be Andrea's singing ) but checking it out now, it sounds pretty good. I mean, cheesy and cringey, but good at the same time. I liked the other tracks I checked out from that album and also 1977's White Witch.

    That was a good one. That reminds me of another one by her that was also very good.

    This one always had that "Chic" feel to it:

    You can't tell that there's a good singer with all the signal processing on her vocal tracks, but if you can hear the raw vocal tracks, you can clearly tell she can sing quite well. That's probably why she got the idea to record an album.

    Thanks for the info! I've always loved her breathy vocal style on the "More More More" original mix. The re-recordings Apple Music flogs at me are good, but I always felt her younger voice captured a little more zeal. One step above Gypsy Rose Lee-style talk-singing with sensual diction and delivery. I was listening to her "White Witch" album the other day and "N.Y., You Got Me Dancing" is a favorite. I haven't had the chance to listen to War Machine yet. EDIT: just realized the original vinyl is hard to find and out of print.

    Come to me - France Joli

    I have no idea how this came to my attention, but I was studying in Oxford at the time: days were spent on my studies, but by 20:00 hours almost every night, I had to go out to nightclubs (well, a nightclub - there was only one in Oxford at that time). I don't recall hearing this in the nightclub, but I do remember buying it - it was one of my 'early' 12" singles I bought (Donna Summer - I feel love, Jacksons - Enjoy yourself, Crusaders - Street life, Herb Alpert - Rise being amongst the very first 12" ever bought).

    I still love this 12" single - and it's perfect for being in the gym.

    This Chic mashup wasn't well done, but i'd like to see what a pro with the multitrack tapes could do. Nile, can you read this?

    This my second favorite record by Chic. The radio and I played it endlessly it seems during that Winter.

    Canadian disco:



    KEBEKELETRIK

    Wow, that record is definitely ahead of its time Boogie. The Salsoul label caught my attention, but I think its one of those albums that Salsoul distributed but is not actually a Salsoul production.

    More Canadian Disco and favorite of mine out of Quebec!

    Hi Tom Tom ! Glad you gave it a listen!
    Some people try to separate disco and electronic music but in the day the blend of the two seemed to happen quite naturally. In 1977 no one gave a second thought to hearing this in a club right after something from Philly even though it was truly quite revolutionary and a sign of things to come.

    Salsoul did sign up some acts outside those produced in their own shop. Claudja Barry , one of my faves, did her work in Germany that was then often sweetened in the states by Tom Moulton.

    Oh yeah Boog, the two are definitely closely related. Personally I prefer disco when it's kept nice and soulful, but a record like that certainly wouldn't get me off the dance floor.

  39. #389
    Oh I like that Claudja Barry track!! See those strings and horns make a big difference for me, such a fuller, richer sound. Not only great to dance to, but also much more pleasant to actually listen to.

    And while we're talking Salsoul, I will share one of my faves and a track that just sums up everything I love about Salsoul and Disco!!!

    I'm almost 100% sure you'll know that one Boogie

    An important figure at Salsoul Records which resulted in songs like:



    Disco perfection.

    thank you Bunny Sigler !
    I cannot believe you shared that track all those months back and I'm there commenting on it, now it's one of my absolute faves, and here I am sharing it with you.

    And thanks for sharing that! I'm really pleased you like that song Tom Tom! As I said, I consider it disco perfection.

    Here's another good one from the same camp:

    For that complete orchestral sound , it's a hard one to beat.

    Thanks Marv for sharing this one. I remember it - but never knew it originated from Canada. The Canadians have produced a substantial amount of music that I don't think they receive the credit. I can see that I'll need to book another holiday - this time to Canada to explore (historical) music.

    You're most welcome Gordy_hunk. Growing up close to the Canadian border during the Can-Con era, we were expose to a lot of Canadian artists and music. A lot of it was quite good. Most of it is it still largely unknown in the rest of the U.S.

    Evelyn "Champagne" King was only 16 when she recorded "SHAME," and she still is performing live regularly. Those lucky enough to have gotten a berth on the Soul Train Boat Cruise sailing out of Ft. Lauderdale January, 2019, she is gonna take us that the shameful place one more time! Love come down! https://youtu.be/ASiqxSwHpQ8

    My ex-girlfriend met Evelyn in the summer of 1978 just months after the release of "Shame". Years later when I was living in Philly, I got to know some of Evelyn's relatives there.

    this song was intended for Elvis Presley:

    you can hear it in this version the songwriter recorded in 1977:




    Elvis died about that time.

    The Clark Sisters were always ahead of themselves musically. This bumpin number from Twinkie Clark's 1979 solo debut (with The Clark Sisters bgv's) could make any church boy get up and dance. I guess you would call it disco/gospel.
