Disco Special  

 I picked this up yesterday from the bins of a record store in North Beach, not the place with the basement but the other one further up the street. I hadn't heard of it, it was without doubt euro disco, but I chanced it on the basis of the cover alone. When I got home I found that side A had a sped up medley of disco hits from that around that year, 1979, a little harsh, but on the flip there was a good cosmic instrumental. What a nice surprise.

 Turns out I'm a little late to the party on this one,  Discothèque's 'Disco Special' was re-issued as part of Morgan Geist's revival triggering Un Classics series in 2005, but it must have slipped by me at the time.

    Geist's version is cut in half into the mix, so i like your's much better.

    Great track with a little bit of 'Night fever' in it. To be honest, I like the a-side ('Intro disco') as well. It reached #15 on the Dutch pop charts in 1979.

    There's also a nice Funk Ferret edit of this track. Check it out here:
