I played IN THE SUMMERTIME all the time in 1972 & 73! So was he in fact, BEFORE DISCO? Maybe, maybe not!

Where's the cutoff?
What defines the line of before/after?

Are The Temptations before or after?

I think Van McCoy's "THE HUSTLE" draws the line of before but the first club I went to was 3 years before that so-----WHERE DO WE DRAW THE LINE????

JAYSKI, that is the question, isn't it. WHERE DO WE DRAW THE LINE?? I don't have that answer, neither does anyone else. I tend to differentiate the time period before and after disco by this. When was the TERM "disco" first used? I tend to believe that it comes down to THE TRAMMPS. Before the TRAMMPS the music was called MOTOWN, R&B, Soul, funk. After THE TRAMMPS they called the music, DISCO. So that is where "I" draw the line. Now The Temptations are a different story. They were MOTOWN, Soul, Funk, R&B, but their members became known for DISCO. Here is another, THE SPINNERS!! They were there before Disco, but they certainly were Disco too!

I did not like this kind of music and would never play it. It sold milions, but not my steez.

COVER OF THE ROLLING STONE was one of those incredibly funny songs that I played opening the evening, when no-one was there! As for Beautiful Woman, never!

I remember a group called GOLDEN EARING that everyone raved about! I think they sang RADAR LOVE. remember them? I believe they were before Disco, even though I might be wrong. I usually am.

"RADAR LOVE" by Golden Earing was serviced to me from the record pool on a 12" sometime in the early 80s---I think 1983. That song was HOT!!!

I too was serviced by a re-release of a disco version of the 1972 song RADAR LOVE! And you are right, I think it was like 81 or 82. I wonder, was GOLDEN EARING Swedish too??

You are quite right. :D

They are from Sweden.

Go to the top of the class. :wink:

Wish I had the 12" pressing you guys have. :(

That song never fails to get me jumpin'. :twisted:



What about The 5th Dimension "Working On a Groovy Thing." from 1968.?? :roll:

That was way before disco but a funky tune to dance to nonetheless. 8)

If you don't know it ...check it.

It is groovy late 60s but one I would have had on the tables all the time.(If I'd been old enough to play in clubs back then that is) :lol:

They also mention being "in ecstasy". I wonder if that's the first time the word "ecstasy" was mentioned in a track you can dance to?...............Hmmmmm..............

Yes I was young too but I remember going to the neighborhood record store and buying "WORKING ON A GROOVY THING" by The Fifth Dimension. It was Sept. 1969 I was 13 yrs old and loved me some funky music.
They also had some other songs cool to move to:
"AQUARIUS / LET THE SUNSHINE IN"('69) + "STONED SOUL PICNIC"('68)

The Fifth Dimension was fine, a very great group, I loved all their stuff. But lets face the facts, before disco, if you went somewhere to dance, the most common group that was played was without a doubt, SLY & THE FAMILY STONE!! Go for it Jay, tell us about the summer block parties in da Bronx,when Sly would work with the New York City Department of Recreation and do live concerts in the streets of New York, summers of 69, 70, and 71! They even made it across the Hudson to West New York for a couple! Remember all their great dance songs! They called it SOUL then!

Sad to say but I was at 2 concerts that were set up for Sly & The Family Stone to jam. One HE did not show up (Central Pk) and the other the whole group did not go at all (Crotona Park).

They DID have some jamz. One of the most influential, most sampled, and pioneering groups in R&B/Dance/Disco.

My SLY Dance favs:

"THANK YOU FALETTINME BE MICELF AGAIN"
"SING A SIMPLE SONG"
"I WANT TO TAKE YOU HIGHER"
"FAMILY AFFAIR"
"STAND"
"HOT FUN IN THE SUMMERTIME"

and one of my very most favs, a song by his personal out-shoot group:
"YOU'RE THE ONE" - by Little Sister. (The Family Stone with his sister Rosie on the lead vocal---remember her from "DANCE TO THE MUSIC"?)

It was on SLY's record label, Stone Flower Records distributed by Atlantic.
(imagine SLY was so big in 1970 he got his own label--at that time only The Beatles & The Stones had that)

Anyway SLY's drug habit was legend and the label went by the wayside (with only 1 release) like his concerts did and everything else.

"YOU'RE THE ONE-Pts.1+2" by Little Sister is a very rare 45---hard to get now. The song was killed in The Playhouse and other clubs from '70-'73.
