Disco Discharge: Midnight Shift
Disco Discharge is back! The highly acclaimed series returns for its fourth set of releases throughout March, April and May to once again lift the spirits and provide a perfect Disco soundtrack to spring 2012! As usual the winning combination of ace compiler Mr Pinks is accompanied by expert disco commentator Alan Jones. A deadly combination with a proven track record!
The fourth and final instalment in the fourth series is the somewhat sinisterly named 'Midnight Shift' otherwise know as the slightly darker side of disco! Featuring 20 original 12” or extended album versions of tracks we called ‘post midnight’ in the trade! Either way these are the ones that will rock a serious gay dance floor throughout the night and into the early hours.
CD 1 opens with the appropriately titled ‘My Knight In Black Leather’ by the devine Bette Midler, and the album continues into a smorgasbord of sleaze from this point forward with such camp gems as Patrick Juvet’s 'Lady Night', Lipstique’s impossible to find 'At The Discotheque', Love Twin’s 'Miami Heatwave' and the Flirtations cover of the Northern Soul classic 'Earthquake' along with other popular gems from Astaire, Suzy Q and even an underground classic from Kim Carnes! Disc 1 ends with a first time on CD for the Hi NRG/rock stomper ‘Run With Us’ by Lias Lougheed. Recently used as the end credits theme for the cult film Hobo With A Shotgun this was originally the theme for the 80’s cartoon Racoons!
CD 2 continues the theme with classics like Lili & Sussie’s 'Candy Love' and Roni Griffith’s relentless 'Love Is The Drug' to get us going in classic Disco Discharge style! As per usual, the titles pretty much sum it up with such hard-to-find dance floor smashes like Fancy’s 'Slice Me Nice', Lime’s 'Wake Dream', Diva’s 'Double Trouble', Lian Ross’s 'Fantasy' and Tapps’ 'Burning With Fire' to name a few. Disc 2 ends with perhaps the best medley ever recorded - Boys Town Gang’s ‘Dance Trance Medley’ - re-uniting some of gay disco's best loved names to celebrate the genre one last time. Truly a show stopping finale to the album!
Please note that this is a non-Almighty product.
