    I walk about an hour on weekdays, to the train station and back. I listen to my portable tape player or CD player. Yesterday I listened to the albums:

    First Choice: Hold Your Horses

    Beautiful Bend: Make That Feeling Come Again!



    Today I listened to:

    Lipstique: At The Discotheque

    The Wonderland Band: Wonderwoman



    Does anyone else know or like these?

    Beautiful Bend...another piece of artistry by Boris Midney. From what Bernie has imparted, Boris was one of the first producers to take hold of a 48-track mixer in the studio. Which is no small feat considering the multiude of musicians employed in his productions.



    Lipstique: At The Discotheque is a European-based production. i have that record somewhere, but i have not played it in ages. My copy was a pressing from RCA Canada.



    Speaking of First Choice, i do not recall "hold your horses" but i love 1980's "breakaway"....and obviously their anthems "love thang", "let no man put us under", "dangerous"....To me, First Choice are the first ladies of Disco, no no, make that the timeless first ladies of the dancefloor, as their material mostly penned by the Baker-Harris-Young team, are a good basis for a lot of the vocal house music of today (sans the orchestra).



    get back at me,

    Usagi-San,

    I love Beautiful Bend!! Their first song that

    I fell in love with was "That's The Meaning"

    and of course "Boogie Motion". These two songs were popular back in 76/77? thanks to

    a weekly hustle dance contest variety show called "Dance Fever". I didn't hear "Make That Feeling Come Again" and "Ah Do It" until later because they didn't get as much

    air play as the first two. The only time I

    will hear these last two songs is in italian

    discotheques and radio stations that plays

    eurodisco(WKTU-NY). I bought the cd earlier

    this year and it's very entrancing as well as

    hypnotic!!!!



    DELIGHTFUL!!!

    Hi Kelvy,

    Thanks for the reply. Before I found this forum, most of what I knew about Boris Midney was from the liner notes of the 2 disc "The Boris Midney Anthology". Quite an innovator. I think he, Cerrone and Alec R. Costandinos were/are brilliant.

    Yes, I think First Choice were to the dancefloor what the Supremes were to Motown pop.

    Yes, I could tell Lipstique was European, recorded in London and Munich. Mine is an English pressing.

    I bought Wonderland Band because it was on Roadshow. I also liked Witch Queen on that label.

    Usagi-San, about "witch queen", are you refering to one of Gino Soccio's productions? i've read about it but never got around listening to it.



    And Cerrone, have you heard the remake of "love in c minor" by the Heart & Soul Orchestra on Casablanca circa 1977? it's quite good although i have not pulled it out in a good while.



    get back at me,

    kelvy
