The Eastside Connection

One thing that continues to intrigue me, is in the short time span between 1976 - 1979, which is known as the golden era of disco, how many artists, producers, and projects became short lived regardless of having a top charting single. With the fall of disco, at least from the mainstream during the 1980's, it seems like record labels moved on to new things such as New Wave and Pop for their dance oriented releases. One project that seems to fall into that category of releasing a chart topping disco single only to completely disapear from the music scene is Eastside Connection. This group was produced by Harry Scorzo and released three 12" singles and one full-length LP during the late 1970's which included the disco classic and most notable, "You're so right for me". The project's other singles, "Frisco Disco" and "Quizas, quizas, quizas" were equally outstanding, however did not receive the kind of a attention that the You're so right for me 12" gained in 1978. Even with the success of this single, the group decided for unknown reasons, to disband. Even though we never got to hear what this group could of flourished into, like so many other disco projects of this era, we were left with a few amazing singles, which is more than I can say for a lot of today's artists.
