I'm gonna LOVE this thread.
This is where my musical interest went to in 1982.
The 12" Remixes were more innovative to me than anything that was coming out of the USA at that time!!!!

I will be able to contribute also!!!!

(Don't stick that needle in your eye Mikey!!!)

This is a great idea for a thread Giorgio! Bravo!
I've also just realised that this is my 1001th post @ Discodisco.com, so to celebrate, here's my first contribution!



Image


In early 80s Australia, in a lot of clubs we had a disco/rock thing goin' on.....this track seemed to please both the rockers & the disco lovers.

This is a special re-edit by a friend of mine called The Geez.
He's 60 & lives in Kentucky.
Used to be a bass player & loves doing re-edits of rock based tracks.
He sent me this a few years back.
Enjoy.

Thanks for the Pete Shelley track Jay. You've inspired me to post this one!!

Martin Rushent was a supremo UK record producer whose bands included ABC and The Human League.
One of his more interesting collaborations got the UK pop group The Members their biggest hit in Australia.
The single version of "Radio" hit the charts and clubs in 1982 and stayed around for most of the year.
Martin Rushent is famous for layering and adding numerous types of echoes over the original work and his mix of this song goes to the fullest extreme.
The extended 12" mix named "Radio - Dub Version" ran about 5 minutes...it contained very few vocal lines.
The flipside of the 12" had the regular 3 minute single version which contained all the vocals.
For download is the Dub Version of "Radio" mixed with the Vocal Version.

4 More great ones Dancer!!!

I don't know, I never included Hall & Oates in the ROSCO Groove!!!

I always kept them in my 'blue eyed soul' category because their music was not so electronic and because of their Philadelphia SOUL roots!!!

They are the JOINT either way you catagorize them!!!

Well I have to say that I do not know what "Rosco" means, but the music is great!!!!
The last four that George put up were all hits on my floors. Actually, I remember remixing and scratching "Relax" at the Hippodrome in London 1984. Cool
Thanks for the memories George
