The list author says: "Disco was the first style of music that I really liked. I have early recollections of ABBA (of course, since I'm from Sweden) and The Bee Gees. I was totally mesmerized by ABBAs disco songs, especially "On and on and on" and "Summernight city". Browsing my way through vintage Donna Summer and the Bee Gees in my late teens, I soon learnt there were more to disco than the most obvious names. I later disco(!!!)vered First Choice, The Trampps, Main Ingredient, Gino Soccio, the whole salsoul thing, Funkadelic and many more. From investigating where samples in house music were actually taken from, I added new names to my "gotta have" disco list. The posibility to discuss disco music on the Internet made me even more inspired. I always felt a little ashamed when I told people I liked disco in my teens. I grew up with doomsday deadpan goth music like Cure and the scored over My Bloody Valentine guitars. I truly liked that too, but let me just say that I felt some kind of a gloriuos ephiphany listening to disco. Nobody understood that!
I collect disco 45's and I want my collection to be bigger and bigger and bigger...
""Makes you blind" - The Glitter Band Find it on: "Super Rare Disco, Vol. 1"/VA This is a true essential! It sums up everything I like about disco, this dry repetitive minimalistic beat. This is disco emerald. Back to the basic beats of disco! No fuss no muss!"
""Lovin' is really my game" - Brainstorm Find it on "Studio 54"/OST It's real hard to find the album on which this song originally was released ("Stormin'", 1977, RCA) so go check out this soundtrack where it's featured. Lovely swift disco with perky Motown feel to it. A huge hit in its days, but why hardly never on compilations?"
""Inside out" - Odyssey Find it on "Native New Yorker" If I could pick some songs to a "Sex and the City" episode, this sad, elegant and truly magic tune would be a matter of course. I was lucky enough to find a nice 12" vinyl when I was 20, and it's been favourite of mine since then."
""Sunset People"-Donna Summer Find it on: "Bad Girls" Toot toot hey beep beep! Great album and "Sunset people" is one of Georgio Moroder's masterpieces. The dry beat, the listless song and lyrics... It has a very Kraftwerk-y feel to it, but I think this really beats those Germans."
