    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.

    Killer track and a perennial favorite of mine every since I first heard it in the Spring of 1978!
