Eighteen months down the line and we finally get ourselves a disco topic! It was this 1977 track by Giorgio Moroder that made me do it:

And right on cue, Smiley's RangeRover comes up with the goods. Often she lists stuff I can't find anywhere but this Euro-Disco song by Soviet/Russian musician Igor Korneluk presented no such problems. From 1988, this is "Bilet Na Balet" (A ticket to the ballet), the title track from Igor's 1989 debut album featuring recordings he made in 1985-1988.

I'm getting to appreciate The Three Degrees and the smoochy side of Disco more and more these days. "Take Good Care Of Yourself" is a spot of advice I dished out myself recently:

I sneered at the likes of Gloria Gaynor in the 1970s. Maybe it's age or rose-coloured glasses but I'm much more open to it now.  This is "Never Can Say Goodbye":

I first heard this when I was in a strange place (emotionally, not geographically) so it's great to revisit it now I've moved on. Italo disco has some fabulous tracks on offer, not least "Faces" by Clio:

Here's some more Italo disco. "Space Melody" is the B-side (and the side I prefer) of "Very Nice", probably the only recorded release by New California. The sleeve image is... strange, to put it mildly.
