    Well, "Aqua Boogie (A Psycoalphadiscobetbioaquadooloop)" wasn't disco, but Nile & 'Nard have gone on record saying they hated disco when they started out, and only used it to get famous. They just happened to be good at it. After all, they started out as rockers. I'm sure that, at some point along the line, they took a liking to it, but notice that starting around 1981, Chic abandoned disco for straight R&B. The "Take It Off" album has to be my second favorite Chic album. Too bad it basically bombed, compared to what the band was used to selling. And, of course, it would have to come at the time when R&B was blacklisted for it's close association with disco. But, notice how Nile 'Nard moved toward rock in the 80s? Robert Palmer, David Bowie, INXS, Rod Stewart? They never left the dance scene, though. They produced tons of dance records on their own with Madonna, Sister Sledge, Missing Persons, their own solo albums, and Duran Duran.

    Ok disco was cool in the early part of the 70's. Then around 78 it started to get more formulated and repetitive. Live musicians were becoming extinct. And whatever live bands were left were getting watered down. The disco era was the beginning of the end. Yeah racism also played a part in the anti disco movement. But not always. There were some non racist Whites along with Blacks who hated it for the reasons I already mentioned.
    Now here's Jerome Brailey (ex P-Funk drummer & original drummer on 5 Stairsteps "Ooh Child") w/ his band Mutiny singing about his feeling on disco
    Yeah....I edited my post, I was having a brain fart at the time. I was thinking of the Kiki Dee Performance on that same show where nobody MOVED in the audience the whole time she was singing, and then forgot that Silver Convention was German. So I drew a conclusion, and then realized it must have been wrong.

    I guess by the time Donna Summer was making her mark all over Europe, Sylvester had come into my life, as had Karen Young with her Hot Shot, and yet to arrive were Lime, Carol Jiani, France Gall, Yvonne Elliman with Love Pains, Sharon Redd, Odyssey, Dynasty, Imagination, Shalamar, Change, Divine.... oh yes, the amazing Divine!

    Now those were the days of endless happiness!
    What planet were you on in the early 70? PIR did take over Motown! For a good time, PIR could do no wrong! The O'Jays, Three degrees, Billy Paul, Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes, and let's not forget MFSB! They had perhaps the best and best-known instrumental of the 70s, and that track was the theme from Soul Train for it's 1974 season! The best Motown could do is the occasional hit from Jackson Five, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, or The Temptations. PIR fizzled out after 1975, with only tew or three hits after that because of internal friction between the writers and Gamble & Huff. Overall, the Philly sound was still quite alive. MFSB could still be heard on hits by Stylistics, Spinners, Salsoul Orchestra, and The Ritchie Family.

    Stax? Bad business moves killed them off. Their loss, Columbia's gain: The Emotions and Johnnie Taylor.

    I liked the one hit wonders of disco! I know Donna Summer (who I love) and the BeeGees and KC dominated but I have a heart for Alicia Bridges - I love the Nightlife. Carl Carlton - Everlasting Love (I know he was not a one hit wonder before anyone jumps) but I would have to say my two favorites are Miss Vicki Sue - Turn the Beat Around and Disco Tex and the Sexolettes - Get Dancin. As a matter of fact I went ape over Stars on 45 and the Beatles medley.

Anyone remember a song sung by a group ( I think) with a male lead singing the words, "Everbody in Hollywood is gettin' down to the afro sound (yea); accross the land from Jamaica to Japan they're partying down...?

    For the record, pardon the pun, I do not wholly agree with the above list and the selections. Too much good stuff was left off and some very obscure garbage was included. See what you think.

    I agree good stuff was left off. This is only 500 songs. You are BOUND to leave stuff off.

    I disagree about obscure garbage. Just because you and I may not know a song- that's actually reasonable. We didnt live everywhere, listen to every radio station and go to every club.
    But the list was compiled by everybody who did.
    What's unreasonable (and a bit presumptuous) is the "I dont know it/or I dont like it- therefore it must be garbage" conclusion.

    That list was put together was a long time ago. I'll bet (as a member/visitor of DM.C) that if the subject was brought up in 2010- the list would look very different. As different as a Motown top 500 list would look (as an example) if you did it a decade apart?

    I live in NYC. I am surprised sometimes when records we took for granted- ROCKED some club in Canada or San Francisco. But it happened. And just because it didnt happen in NYC dosnt make it less valid. Big world out there.....

    You know how many records came out of the Chicago Disco scene that I STILL have never heard that people revere and pay HUGE money for when the 12" comes up on eBay?

    Great points Honest Opinions. I too am in NYC, but at the time of the Disco Era I was mostly in Detroit, Denver,Toledo,Philly and Canada and partied in NYC. There were songs that you had to have to have a party in Detroit that are not on this list. I know they had different favorites over in Europe and elsewhere.

    Three of my favorite disco songs are not very well known - but should be remembered.

    1. I Got The Next Dance With You - Denise Williams
    2. Star Love - Cheryl Lynn
    3. Dance - Paul Jabara

    All 3 of them filled the dance floor down in Washington DC during the day. Now you have to search for them since they are hard to come by.

    These two songs are very well-known, at least in the R&B world...

    I have to state first ,that I got a big problem with the label of "Disco" being applied to a good portion of the tracks listed above.
    A good 90% of them are just plain old danceable R&B/Funk music. A good portion of them are complex ,multi layered compositions that reflect the infuence of Jazz ,Soul ,R&B and Classical elements ,when you "Really" listen to them. The designation of "Disco" to me ,is a generalized ,commercial term for music that ,only but for the fact that they were played in the clubs, they were put into that label or designation. " Swearin' To God - Frankie Valli", while not a "Funky" track ,is in fact a big band track with jazz influence in its full form. An aural ass kicker. Jimmy Bo Horns ,"Is it In" for example ,is just pure nasty ass Funk ,yet it is considered "Disco". The Petrus/Malvasi ,Gregg Diamond and Georgio M tracks were as in sync to the U.S. market as the Italian "western movies" were with Eastwood etc. They are pure Funk/ R&B with a little classical sweetening. Just listen to the layers of those tracks ,they kick ass equal to the tracks coming out of Philly and L.A.'s Solar product on the heels of Philly's G&H and B.H.Y. Yet they are classified as "Disco" ,alongside bullshit as "Disco Lucy" ,"Disco Duck" ,etc. Disco , is a bad word to me ,and mind you ,I admit to having 90% of all those in the posted list ,so I agree with what you said Marv.
    "heartbeat" and "Over Like A Fat Rat" ,for example are just to Funky to be considered "Disco" , by any means.
    And lets not even consider what is coined ,"Pre-Disco".
    And....as far as the "T.M. mix was concerned , he was like the gourmet butcher ,that trimmed the choice fat and presented the choice parts of the meat for the chefs,who were the Dj's ,and enabled them to serve to the public ,the choice parts of each selection. I don't believe what is considered "Disco" in its popular term ,is not what he intended it to be. I think it goes deeper than that ,and thats why I think he has been silent about this.

    Amen daddyacey! Few things annoy me more than when R&B/funk songs are lumped together as disco. And, it's usually either by people who hate disco and don't know shit about it, or by people who love it, but also do not make any distinction between it and R&B/funk.

    Oh, but Some of that stuff you say is bullshit, like Disco Lucy, was just fun. No reason all music has to be serious all the time.

    Following up on a point Honest Opinion made earlier, here's one that was VERY popular locally (Detroit-Toledo) but did not make the Top 500 list, Morris Jefferson and " Spank Your Blank Blank" :

    The album "When love comes calling" by Deniece Williams, was issued this week on CD. It contains the single mix, album mix and the 12" disco mix of "I've got the next dance".

    Star love is available as a download from Amazon (the 7 minutes + version) and there is also a version on the newly released CD "The best of" (the CD was issued August 30). Don't know the length of the track on that CD though.

    The track 'Dance' by Paul Jabara from his first album "Shut Out" isn't yet available on CD. It is hoped that the CD will be issued before too long.

    Hope this helps.

    i love this thread, way to go marv! you know i have a 70's show and i represent the disco and the funk to the fullest! men i can't stand when ppl. who claim they didn't like disco. like it was only blacks, gays and europeans listening and buying this music! there's no way no man could tell me they wasn't chasing women up in the disco club, the ladies were always there and they love to dance and dance sexy too! i wish i was a adult at that time(ooo the fine women i would be getting!)LOL. anyway, i was just a kid and i used to go to the jams in the park here in new york. we even had a little disco for kids ages 10-15 and i had a ball in 1978. and my all time favorite song, they used to shut the party down with(and played it twice was
    and don't u dare short change me and play that corny 45 version! anybody feel like doing the rock? lol.

  35. #85
    here are a few of my favs:
    my 2nd crush was this lady in 1976
    nobody sang ooh and send a chill up my spine the way this woman did. she just oozes sex and i was only 8 when this song came out!

    another gem fom 1979


    one of the best baseline of 1977





    one of my all time favs form 1975




    and i still run to the dance floor as soon as i hear the intro, 30 years later!

    Gordy,

    I've been seeing "When Love Comes Calling" on CD for months now on another label. Which label, I can't recall.

    Another song I really love is the long version of Phyllis Hyman's "You Know How To Love Me".

    [QUOTE=soulster;15947]Gordy,

    I've been seeing "When Love Comes Calling" on CD for months now on another label. Which label, I can't recall.

    The label is BBR, and generally sells for 7.99 (try Amazon for it).

    They have issued some excellent CD so far this year, such as Gloria Gaynor's "Never can say goodbye" and "Experience" as well as the Three Degrees two albums on Philadephia and also the 'New Dimensions" album. Interestingly, the latest release from the Three Degrees contains a couple of tracks they sang in Japanese.

  39. #89
    I was mostly impressed by the Heatwave reissue of "Current". The only thing is that they compressed it too much.

    Hey thanks Classic Master. I was an adult(just barely mind you) during this time in our musical, social history and let me tell you.......I had a ball! LOL! I can remember the night I went along with some older college friends to the late football great Lyle Alzado's club called Red Parrot (then later "Alzado's") in Denver Colorado. He stopped me at the door and I was sweating bullets because you had to be 21 to get in and I was just 18. He gave me the once over and let me in then and everytime I went back LOL! Oh the ladies we be there in packs, dressed and READY FREDDY! LOL!

    jsmith, I love your posts ,and there is always that 2 or 3 facts I didn't know of in them.
    Ms. Brown is a talent IMO ,that is too good to be ,"commercially" exploited. That is ,why she is one of the many ladies ,that have not recieved broader recognizition . She is a Divas Diva. She the voice behind the commercial image of a singer in the 80's -90's period. That's the reason why she left here for the U.K.. The woman is an awesome talent.

    classicmaster : I was rolling from your thread. I am just as guilty as you.

    The track 'Dance' by Paul Jabara from his first album "Shut Out" isn't yet available on CD. It is hoped that the CD will be issued before too long.

    Hope this helps.
    Thanks for this info. I actually have all three tracks but am excited to find that Denise Williams When Love Comes Calling is now out on cd. I really enjoyed that one and will definitely pick that cd up. I Got The Next Dance was featured on a cd compilation called Let's Dance which I'm sure is now OOP. The Cheryl Lynn track was on her first album which was released on cd many, many years ago. Paul Jabara had a compilation cd that contained tracks from all of this albums and contains Dance. Again, long out of print.

    Also, I would love to find the Melba Moore cd This Is It. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED that album. I heard it was released on cd but have never been able to find it. This Is It was a great dance floor piece.

    Rhino used to put out disco compilations in the early 90s,I think they were called "The Disco Years" they had a good cross section of songs Rhino seemed to always put so much care into their releases.
    I worked on a New Zealand disco compilation called "Absolute Disco" which was fun,Pre You Tube original disco video clips were quite hard to come by as they hadnt really been serviced to tv stations as there wasnt really a demand to see them..I had good quality clips of Kool and The Gang,The Jacksons etc..the "Knock On Wood' video was fun with Ami in her headpiece..I cant remember which tracks Warners remastered from my collection for the cd but there was a few..I love Niles clear perspex guitar in the "Le Freak" video to....

    The only thing I hated about Rhino comps is that, while Bill Inglot would master the sound pretty well (even though he was a treble whore), he would consitieantly put on the wrong single versions.

    Three Degrees

    ginomons comments that the Three Degrees were underrated in the US. That's their loss, but for the rest of us, we loved the Three Degrees, and they were very successful and welcomed.

    Sheila Ferguson used to live very close to me until relatively recently, and hope one day she'll return here. Her style and vocal leads were excellent for disco - as the live recordings demonstrate. Thanks ginomons for posting them.

    From the PIR days to Ariola, the Three Degrees were very much in demand, sold records, and were often to be heard on the radio. Their Giorgio Moroder albums of course have now been issued in Japan, although this year has seen the first of these, New Dimensions, released on CD with bonus tracks in the UK. 3D hasn't yet been issued in the UK, but is still available in Japan.
