Somos Novios – The Three Degrees

I’m dead. This Latin drama (coming first from Mexico and here by way of Philadelphia) vibrating through the angelic trinity known to us as, “The Three Degrees” equates, for me, a lethal overdose of a soul sonic sound drug. (But, “It’s Impossible,” you say. Correct. Yes it is to most…but for a moment, in a recordng studio in 1975, on an album titled, “International” that would soon be released by Philadelphia International Records, it was a new hybrid sound we’ll call simply, Spanish Philly Soul.)  There’s just no other way to put it… and no video. You’ll have to see it in your own minds, my readers.

Now, listen. Listen at your own risk but rest assured because it’s merely a temporary death. You’ll be back to life, listening to Sia and The Weekend in about four minutes.

We’re Lovers

we’re lovers
as we both feel a mutual & profound love
and with that, we have already won the biggest prize (prize not included in text, however, in English, cannot simply say biggest)
of this world
we make love (love each other), we kiss
as lovers
we desire each other & sometimes even without a reason
& without cause, we fight (get angry)
we’re lovers
we nurture an innocent and pure love
as everyone does
we wait for night time (lit.: we seek for the darkest moment, but in English we don’t express it this way)
to talk to each other
to give each other the sweetest kiss
to remember the colour of the cherries
without words, we’re lovers

The Three Degrees – Starlight

Well, for openers…this song sends me right off the launching pad into some kind of third degree heaven. “You’re my never ending breath of mystic light?” Lyrics, people. I know the hair is major and the styles are so right on, but get into the words if you can.

NEWS FLASH – There never was a pot of gold. I’m pulverised.

Join Me At The Monster NYC for Disco Classics

I’ll be there tonight from 6 to 10 PM filling in for Bunny. The last time I did this the staff freaked out and the dance floor was full from 6:30 onward. I’m not the type to boast so I won’t tell you I received a very gracious and surprising round of applause after my set! I do it all for the dancers.

Come and dance – I’ll be doing it all for you.

The legendary MONSTER NYC – 80 Grove Street – ( Gay Ground Zero  )-  from 6PM till after dark.

It’s their 32nd Year on the Square , Sheridan Square.

I’ll be there next Sunday too but it might be very crowded after tonight!

The Three Degrees – Dirty Ol’ Man

I really have never heard a better trio. You can keep the Supremes. I realize that may cost me some of my preferred readers, but try listening to them with your eyes. Then try to see their sound. They can’t be beat. Heavenly harmonies heal.
