Got Got Money

This past year, Five Letters' 1980 disco classic "Tha Kee Tha Tha" was one of the many highlights from Stevie Kotey's excellent compilation Disco Italia: Essential Italo Disco Classics - 1977-1985. This opened many new eyes toward the 70's French disco group, as well as the other material that came from this project, which was written and produced by Claude Vallois and Denis Desrouvres. One of the many classic cuts that disco lovers could of latched onto was the group's 1979 gritty gem "Got Got Money (And I Moo)". This was the leading and self-titled track to the group's 1979 LP which was released off of Cerrone's Malligator label. "Got Got Money..." nicely blends together a dancefloor fierce groove with a driving rock-flavoured edge that helps it fall into that "disco-not-disco" category. Overall, it's one of the many solid productions produced by this successfully short-lived French disco outfit.
