Sleaze Volume One by DJ Luke Howard

The good news about Luke Howard’s, “Sleaze” disco mixes? – There are fifteen volumes in this expertly curated disco reference tool. How wonderful to have an encyclopedic knowledge! Personally I am downloading all of them twice and having one set etched onto titanium plates as binary code then stored very deep underground at a classified location. The other set I’ll be mounting in the meditation room of my sacred disco temple where I frequently commune with and keep up with the dearly departed dancers from The Saint. Oh yes, they are still dancing and yes, Gay, there is flag dancing in heaven….it’s not easy because a lot of these guys have those big wings…sort of like the circuit queens’ costumes but…well they’re not actually costume wings…anyway…wings can make a lot of the old flagging moves difficult due to tangling, lost feathers, even broken wings from what I heard during last week’s session. oh yes girl, it’s heaven in heaven but shit still happens…from what I hear…and girl, did you hear who nearly fell through her cloud at last week’s High Tea?…I mean, how high does she need to be? This is heaven…top floor sweetie…GET OFF THE ELEVATOR! Bitch is dead and gone and still nearly killing herself on the dancefloor….she IS sweet though.

HERE IS YOUR SLEAZE DISCO ENCYCLOPEDIA by LUKE HOWARD

I hope I don’t die before I listen to all of them because they only have harps in heaven and I love a harp but I mean…all the time?…forever? No. I need my disco down here on earth.

More Music And Memories

This mix is sorta more of the same as the last one, like the one I played at Martin Keehn last week. There was too much, it needed a supplement. Basically the same songs I have been dancing to for thirty years. LOL. Grandpa still likes to get down…just a little slower at times. Mostly disco tracks, but somehow Adele got right in there too…keep it loose and move around.

Traffic jams, fire trucks and the sounds of what was.

Go ‘head.

Disco Trek – The Universal Robot Band

When vinyl was the music, this track was a secret weapon of mine. Sister Dimension’s copy was handed down to me and I’ll tell you what – This track at the end of the night when the lights come up will get you a return booking. It’s the ultimate send off into the night for the drunks and still tripping party people. Actually this has to be the last track because nothing can ever be played after it.

This was me every night in my bedroom as a kid. Full flashlight fantasy festivals.

A Song For Today – “To Each His Own” – Faith, Hope And Charity

Sing it out loud when you hear all that hate speech and ignunt talkin that have become so commonplace in our troubled country. Why don’t cha, why don’t cha? …and yes, this classic contains Disco Glockenspiel.  There is nothing better except maybe Disco Chimes. toot toot

ABBA Will Tour In 2019!

My life has been changed by this recent announcement. I will be unavailable for comment for forty-eight hours while I turn inward and search for the words to describe exactly how my life has been changed.

Seconds – The Salsoul Orchestra featuring Loleatta Holloway

No words are necessary with this post because there ARE no words that can describe, relate or capture the many aspects of this classic Loleatta track.

This is the Salsoul Orchestra original extended 12″ mix and is the highest quality mp3.

 

There It Is (Verse 2), from The Holy Book of Shalamar

Today our Shalamar study group examines the sacred trio’s 1982 single,”There It Is” from the album, “Friends.” This is the blessed beat and heavenly sound of Solar Records. Inside the lyrics we find a piece of true dance-floor poetry. Effective, beautiful and transporting, the poem uses a simple simile on top of a sound that seems to smile as it sways softly over it’s central yet unwritten theme, “the sometimes turbulent waters on the ocean of love.”

Here now, the standard King James 12″ version for your notes:

Composers – Nidra Beard, Dana Myers and Charmaine Elaine Sylvers

VERSE 2 –

In the sea of love we set our sails when waters were rough,
Two in search of love with no direction,
Fish were biting at the time when catching wasn’t enough,
We couldn’t make a sport of our affection.

And who would dream that we would sail into each other?
Ooh girl, I never felt the wave of love so strong,
And this love I never felt in any other,
I trust it like a lighthouse guides a ship to land,
I found it when you touched my hand.
