    Come through, Twinkie! She took this old chestnut and turned it!

    The birth of disco? A medium soul hit in 1972 , Tom Moulton got ahold of it in 1975 , tacked some of its instrumental version (PENGUIN AT THE BIG APPLE ) up front and turned it into a five minute dance floor favorite found on the cleverly named, never before released , THE LEGENDARY ZING ALBUM lp.



    PS I like that Twinkie Clark piece Glen!

    Twinkie's "Awake O Zion" is irresistible. For a church girl, she certainly knew her way around the disco.

    Did you guys know that last week was the 40th Anniversary of the Disco Demolition night at Chicago's Cominsky Park where they blew up thousands of Disco records as a part of the "Disco Sucks" campaign? They wanted to abolish Disco music forever. The name was changed to "Dance Music" and the beat goes on........

    Nope, Was Not Was (Don Was and brother David Was) along with the rest of the band were Detroit natives! Remember the song "Walk The Dinosaur" from around the mid 80s? That was them also. The label, ZE may have been out of NYC but the music and talent on the above record was 100% DETROIT! "Out Comes the Freaks" was a huge favorite with Detroiters in 1981.

    Oh I remember that one very well. That has the NYC Disco sound that was also popularized by Corey Daye, Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah band and others. Cool record.
