Comment:

A minuscule testament to my ongoing fascination with 70s and 80s disco and club music (although one of the tracks featured here stems from the early 90s), a genre wrongly and stupidly dismissed as dull and vacuous at the time. Today, I find it much more subversive than, say, punk, in its relentless celebration of a hedonistic, sexually liberated and nonconformist lifestyle, and certainly a lot more sophisticated in musical terms than the bulk of 70s rock. Anyway, it most certainly can't be accused of being "trendy indie shit". ;)

A "celebration of a hedonistic, sexually liberated and nonconformist lifestyle"-I'll be there!

And a "relentless celebration" at that. Well the punk lifestyle never sounded so tiring ;)Looks great Thomas, and - from someone who contributed twice as much as you last year - good to see you're still producing the odd mix ;)

Good to see you back! Whatever happened to your "Germans Under Cover" blog? (I like Vince Gill, but somehow I doubt that you would be blogging about him.)

Well, If this is as good as The parallel 60s and Squeezboxing, I'll know it is full of quality indeed. Did I ever thank you for those discs? Can't remember, but I loved 'em - the latter being one of my all time favourite mixes. You should post more and we should trade mohr.
Anyway, lots to love here - the Chic and Rare Pleasure tracks always get my booty shaking...

i concur with sammy that you should post more, as this mix alone is ample justification & reason - i'd love to hear this in full, as there are plenty of tracks unknown to me...

well I must confess that I never really appreciated it at the time (I was too obsessed with '70s cock rock and then punk, I guess) . . . . having said that, as I mature gracefully, I'm finding more and more 70s disco, funk and jazz funk coming into the mix and yes, it is a relentless celebration of a hedonistic, sexually liberated and nonconformist lifestyle . . . . it's just a shame that I look such a pratt pogoing to it !Very 70s cover too !

There's quite a bit of good-to-great stuff in the disco genre and you've nailed quite a bit of it here.

I lived the Disco Era and while any pictures of myself from those times make me shudder (think Meatloaf as Travolta) the sound brings back fond memories (my "Disco Sucks" banner on my dorm window notwithstanding.)

Oh great. Another trendy indie shit mix. Yawn. But seriously, this IS the shit. We always knew there was a disco worshipping dynamo hiding behind that cooler-than-thou persona ;) I'm only familiar with a handful of these, but I'm sure any one of them would have me heading towards the dancefloor for a few minutes under the mirrored disco ball. Great to see you back, BTW!! Hope for Mohr in 208.

Sorry I'm late to the party, but I had trouble finding my stash of snort. This is a fine testament to the fact that people who thought disco sucked only heard sucky disco. Splendid mix, title and cover Thomas.
