Disco Loco Vol. I


Disco Loco Volume One
is the first

release in LocoBop’s series of dance

tracks circa 1977 – 1982 covering the

flamboyant disco era of Saturday Night

Fever fame.

 

The Duck Band a.k.a. Rick Dees’s

Cast of Idiots were the same musicians

(and producer) responsible for the

classic “Disco Duck.” J. Blackfoot

scored Soul/R&B hits before and after

the disco period (solo and with the Soul

Children). “Light On My Feet” was cut at

the height of Disco’s popularity. The

Masqueraders’ “Rock Jam”, along with

“Love Fever” by Shirley Brown and

“Give It All you Got” performed by

Randy Brown are other prime

examples of Memphis soul acts who

cashed in on the disco fad without

harming their R&B credentials. Carson

Whitsett’s “Sundancer” is a frenetic,

melodic electro disco instrumental flush

with sequencers and synthesizers.

Amber, two girls and a guy coupling the

racial make up of Tony Orlando & Dawn

with the smooth vocal harmonies of

Abba graced disco charts in Europe on

the London label with “Dancing Place”.

“Fold Out Girl” is Memphis rocker Pat

Taylor’s claim to disco fame. D.S.D.B.

was a studio group forged by Carson

Whitsett featuring Fred Knobloch,

Frederick Knight, and James Stroud on

vocals. Richard Orange is another

Memphis icon whose “Supernatural”

made noise in Europe on the DJM label.

Bobby Manuel & Rick Christian wrap

this album with “Don’t Dance Too Fast”.
