Friday Night Disco

I found this cut browsing around on and immediately fell in love. Here is one of Arabesque's rare disco classic "Friday Night". This extremely hard-to-find gem was released as a 7-inch single in 1978 by the all female German group. This was one of their earliest singles to an overall successful career, selling more than 6 million records worldwide by catching on first in Japan before gaining a lot of popularity in Europe. Other notable disco classics to that I recommend checking out are "Midnight Dancer", "In The Heat Of A Disco Night", "Hello Mr. Monkey", and "High Life" among many others. Overall, this is a very rare disco classic that can be quite expensive. It would nice to see someone re-issue a bootleg copy of this amazing track. ENJOY!

just for the records.
The singer in the middle is Sandra, later married to Producer Michel Cretu (Enigma etc.) She started a Solo career after the split-up of Arabesque. Their records can be found on any fleamarket here in Germany for nothing.
nice blog, Love it!!

Yes, that's Sandra 'Maria Magdalena' Cretu. Have a look on Wikipedia for her solo career and her work with her (former) husband Michael Cretu (Enigma).
