    Re: 1977 Billboard Disco Compilation Consensus Charts!!!

    thanks, Marky, for the latest January '77 chart. Sad to see the fabulous Supremes say goodbye to the top 10, but oh so very happy they got to enjoy that lofty success during their final year (1977) as a recording trio.:icon_cool:

    and beautiful it is too! :icon_cool:





    The bumbling unders ... this is where the action is !! :icon_mrgreen:

    thanks to your meticulous detailing chartman, all is revealed !!

    Here we can see what's bumbling under in select places
    but is about to surface everywhere ....

    and look at the nights out in San Francisco .... it is hot hot hot !! - in January! :icon_mrgreen:

    It and Montreal are first onto TATTOO MAN which will continue a long run as a HUGE SF favorite as I fondly remember

    also SF : first with TWENTY FOUR HOURS A DAY another West Coast monster

    as well as some early appreciation expressed in that city for - Instant Funk !

    Meanwhile --- Atlanta is first to tap into HIT AND RUN :icon_cool:

    and Montreal's playing .....some guy named Cerrone


    oh
    and of course a tip of the hat to the always bold and beautiful Phoenix for their courageous playing of an Elton John evergreen .... BITE YOUR LIP .


    ******


    I still recall the thrill -
    I guess I always will

    DISC-O-LA FORTUNE 500 ......

    [first posted in the 3/26/76 column]

    The rarefied air of the important CLASSIC records on the chart this week led me to take a look at their positions on the Disco-o-la Fortune 500 Discotheque Songs of the 70s list compiled by Ed Rothschild (with assistance from Johnny Tripp and Chipper McKearnin), that appears in its entirety in the back of Mel Cheren's book, Keep On Dancin': My Life and the Paradise Garage (2000); (Supposedly, this list came to fruition sometime in the Eighties; I don't know the specifics. The list goes back as early as the late Sixties for a few titles and then culls some from the early Seventies and stops at the end of
    1979--no records from the Eighties are included--a few charted in 1980--but were actually released in late 1979)

    DISCO MIX
    By Tom Moulton

    January 15, 1977

    NEW YORK—Herbie Mann has teamed with Silver Convention to record a new disco single, “Years Of Love,” which was released in Germany on the Atlantic label. The product, which sounds like a combination of "TSOP" and “Back Stabbers,” will be released here shortly. Its theme deals with the different months of the year. The disk with a German sound was produced by Michael Kunze and Sylvester Levay.

    Atlantic Records here has also released two 12-inch 33 1/3 r.p.m. disco disks. They are “Daddy Cool” by Boney M and “Space Age” by the Jimmy Castor Bunch. Both are for disco deejays only and are not commercially available.

    Old Town Records has released a new Arthur Prysock album titled “All My Life.” There are six disco-oriented songs, including his current hit “When love Is New.” “I Wantcha Baby” is also very strong. It is another Gamble & Huff tune. It features two good breaks and is like his current hit in many ways.

    All My Life” is the fastest tune on the LP and is at times reminiscent of the old Barry White style. “I Love Making Love To You” is slower, mellower and melodic. It shows off Prysock’s easy approach to his craft. “All I Need Is You Tonight” features more of the Philadelphia sound with the tom tom accented on 2 and 4. “This Is What You Mean To Me” is melodic and commercial and has the quality of a hit single. The album was arranged and produced by John “The Monster” Davis and is without doubt his strongest effort to date.

    Columbia Records has released a disco version of Tina Charles’ “Dance Little Lady, Dance” on a 12-inch 33 1/3 r.p.m. disco disk. It is not commercially available.

    RCA Records has released another commercially-available 12 inch 33 1/3 r.p.m. disco disk by the Memphis Horns titled “Get Up And Dance” backed with “Don’t Abuse It.”

    Also on Columbia is a special advance pressing of a 12-inch 33 1/3 r.p.m. disco disk of the Miracles’ new single “Spy For Brotherhood” taken from the group’s forthcoming LP Love Crazy.” It is uptempo and has a few characteristics of “Love Machine,” their last big hit.

    The Love Unlimited Orchestra has a new commercial 12-inch 33 1/3 r.p.m. disco disk titled “King Kong’s Theme.” It highlights the group’s sound and features the snare drum way out in front. There is a long introduction with a rhythm not unlike “My Sweet Summer Suite.”
