The Definition of Disco Funk

France Jolie. đź’‹

This track is soooo tight it turns me from a 32 to a 28. I lose a quarter pound each time I play it. It was written by Eric Matthew (of Gary’s Gang fame) and Darryl Payne in 1982 and appeared on various dance labels here in the US and in Canada. When the lyric says, “gimme some of that ” I make a very pained expression and usually bust a one-leg-up side-shuffle type of move. Funkeeee!

Now, France Jolie – NOW!

Prelude Records people, the soundtrack to my life. đź’‹

Dyin’ To Be Dancin’ – Empress

Now, this one really was my jam. Empress. Get into her. Sister Dimension owned this track. This was the sound of Whisper’s ( Sunday night at Pyramid. ) The levels on this rare 12″ mix are all over the place – so be ready for some ear bleed. It’s worth it though – the “rap” is hilarious but then again, this was 1981. Any lyric that starts off with a desperately shreeking, “Somebody help me!” is good for me. I hear you babe… I’m dying to be dancing.

Prelude Records made it happen. -Written and performed by Crown Heights Affair.  – Produced my William Anderson and Raymond Reid.

Vocals are by Gail Smith.

Crank it.
