I L.O.V.E Disco

I don't have a lot of time today, however I won't leave you hanging. So here are by far, my favorite two disco tracks from Demis Roussos. The first is a Todd Terje edit of the classic '77 disco gem "I Dig You". This song is a true disco classic with a touch of tango brilliance. You can find the original off of the The Demis Roussos Magic LP, released the same year. Second is the classic '78 dancefloor love song, "L.O.V.E Got A Hold Of Me", which originally came off the self-titled album Demis Roussos. I just wish Roussos wrote more songs like these. Enjoy.

Also, after this post, Liam Dunne, aka, Lmd64 sent me a nice re-edit of Demis Roussos' "Midnight is the Time". Check it out:

Hi. Thanks for a great blog!

Brooklyn
Fat Records: Meserole & Leonard (1 block east of Manhattan ave)
Academy: N 6th betw Driggs & Roebling
Junk: Driggs & N 9th it's really worthwhile to look thru the dusty boxes on the floor

Hope you have a great time!

Tons of great stores in NYC but most are over-priced.
At A1 go straight to the crates underneath the real records for the $1 finds.

Also try Norman's which is on 3rd Ave between 7th and St. Mark's. Go straight to the basement and on weekends its all half price (sometimes you need to remind them).

Around the corner on St. Mark's is Kim's which has a decent selection of vinyl upstairs.

You could also try Gimmie Gimmie Records on 5th between 1st and 2nd which is only open Thur - Sunday.
