Produced and arranged by one of the giant names and legendary producers in the New York Disco scene of the mid-1970s and early 1980s, but not only. If you're a DJ, record collector, or just a music lover, you might have seen his name somewhere.

 

Sung by the great and powerful female soul and disco vocalist Jocelyn Brown.

 

Enjoy this lecture when you have some time because it's really worth it.

Wow you hit me with these two powerful Italo-disco classics. I love the two tracks but especially Eyes. The production is top notch.

 

I will keep the Italo-disco vibe with two favorite mid tempo tracks from the year 1983.

I was looking for something a little different this morning, came across this which was released as a 12" in 1982 along with a dub mix as a B-side. From the sounds of it, even this extended mix has elements of dub soul before treading a traditional disco route which is tenuous at best. There's a lot of accent to this record.

Yup you posted Eyes on page 2 :p :D And Faces is one of my absolute favourites. Can't find anything on Clio and what she done after.  I know she was just the singer and didn't produce I think the producer is Roberto Ferrante. 

 

I'm going to deviate a little as it's not "pure" disco. This is a 1998 remix/re-release of Telex's 1979 classic. There's an 1985 version too. It's pretty timeless but I love this version. I haven't been able to find it for ages. I first seen it on someone's Myspace profile.. haha. 

 

 

And something more "traditional" I just discovered today. Really nice tempo.. uplifting Disco..I'd say it was a dancefloor banger back in the day. 

 

 

@Craig: Interesting find, I like it. Getting Cameo mixed with a little Gap band from it.

I went back to basics with this after a couple of niché discoveries. If disco music had a bingo sheet, this would cross all the boxes.

Disco musique, you like it? Oui, oui, I do.

Spoiler

 

This is the second LP also produced by Mr. Adams but it's more soulful than the first one. This track is the hottest and best one of the LP. The bass especially the congas drive me crazy. It's alone worth it.

 

This one is kinda interesting. I would have expected something less funky and more pop oriented. It's not and I'm not disappointed. Congas :inlove:

Haven't got a chance to listen to last few posts. Will tomorrow. Finally found the name of this track where the main riff always appears in mixes or somewhere. Not sure where I heard it before. Someone sent me mix by Cut Chemist and it was in there.. It's amazing..

 

EDIT: Think it was in a Poolside mix.

I bloody love Cut Chemist. I remember discovering The Audience Is Listening back in college. It's a very nostalgic listen.

 

Anyway, disco. You can't get much more 80s than Giorgio Moroder. Every trope there is to be found in 80s pop and disco can be found here.

A nice disco classic. Linda Lewis was such a sweet cutie pie. She could sing, write songs and play guitar.

 

Here's two songs sung by the late great Cuba Gooding Sr.

 

Another nice track by The Main Ingredient. This one is from their 1981 LP.

 

It features Cuba Gooding who was a member from 1971 to 1978.

 

Early 80's disco floorfiller. The French issue seems to be the only 12 inch single to portrait a naked woman on the cover. Oh la la.
