Babe Ruth Loved Disco

Here is an interesting 'prog-disco' track entitled "Elusive" from Babe Ruth. The track has kind of grown on me even though I admit the jury is still out on this one. With that being said, I think it's prime material for a future disco edit. The song was originally released in 1975 on the British rock band's Stealin' Home album. I must admit that I've always been somewhat intrigued about this group, especially with a name like 'Babe Ruth' (I'm a huge Baseball fan) and so far this has been the song that has garnished up most of my attention. I suppose with a track like this that attempts to take some chances and blur the lines between different genres, it's up to each person to decide whether the song really works for them. You decide.

This sounds great but the sound borders on that post disco-punk sound. Love it though.

Read the wax poetics piece on their masterpiece, "The Mexican", later covered by Jellybean.

...and the Bombers. funny this post never once mentions Babe Ruth's "The Mexican," a cornerstone of both disco and hip-hop. i'm also presuming you mean "garnered your attention" rather than "garnished" it (which would mean parsley or some such).
