Various - Disco Galaxia 3

Anyone fancy a bit of disco??

This album only came out fairly recently which doesn't fit in with the remit of this blog, but who gives a fuck - its a bootleg so I don't feel guilty about sticking it up. Seven tracks from the halcyon late 70s/early 80s disco/Italo-disco period which I wasn't that up on before getting this. I can imagine a few of these gracing the dancefloor at Optimo at certain points during the course of an evening.

If you were to pick up the original releases of this lot you wouldn't get change out of £500, so big thanks to whoever's behind this release.

My pick o'the bunch as of this moment is 'Skydiver' which has been going through my head all day.

Some of the tracks seem to finish really suddenly - I can assure you it's not my rip, but the fault of the original bootlegger...

I have been looking for that Neon track ever since Joakim put it on his Colette mix. Nice.

I usually don't like the kind of disco where it has got soul or funk elements, but this collection is a fine collection of such tracks that might work any way.

Disco forever! I love this album. Johnny Harris' tune was written for the Buck Rogers TV show apparently. Cool eh?
