Paradise Island Disco

I recently heard the studio disco band, The Wonderland Band for the first time when I came across their 1979 twelve-inch record Paradise Island. This disco cut was originally included on their solid 1979 LP, Wonder Woman which was produced by Morrie Brown. Most of the group's cuts were disco versions of superhero style themed songs. That being said, I'm unsure how the "Paradise Island" track fits into all of that, however there is definitely something about the song, possibly the fact that listening to it makes me think of a outdoor disco party on a tropical beach somewhere, that I can't seem to get enough of. Regardless, as the days grow colder as we enter the fall, here is a song to remind you of those warmer disco nights a few months back!

Gorgeous LP jacket! "Paradise Island" is a reference to Wonder Woman's home where the Amazons live (in DC comics mythology).
