Love The Way You Move

I'm counting down the final days until my trip to Paris. I've very much excited, as this visit has been in the works now for almost an entire year. Note the dates I will be playing, which have been posted at the top of the right-handed side of this site.

To lead off this final week before my trip, I thought I would post Michele's brilliant 1977 disco classic "Disco Dance". This track was originally released by West End Records as a twelve-inch single that featured two incredible mixes, the original eight-plus minute mix by Tom Moulton and the extended thirteen-minute version by Patrick Cowley. The original version of the song was also included on Michele's full-length album release Magic Love, which also featured the ground-breaking disco gem "Can't You Feel It". More recently the track has found it's way onto the screen in West End Record's 2006 documentary, Gay Sex In The 70's. Overall, Disco Dance is a classic among classics and one that has helped make both the twelve-inch single and her full-length album prime finds for any disco collector. Enjoy!

This was a huge song at the Paradise Garage in NYC and I remember dancing to this song and would be soaked. Such fond memories of those times and looking back on it I really miss those times thanks for taking me back down memory lane with this one.
