DiscoT,

Hansa & Ariola was kind of big in Europe... Both released lots of Disco 12" singles, so I think that's where you've probably seen their names frequently. But I think CBS (and related) along with Atlantic (and related) was bigger.

Hansa did not reach US ?

As I recall, they (Hansa) did release some stuff in the US - or maybe it was just licensed stuff that some other label released within the US but with the Hansa logo on it.
Else I would guess it was mostly imports if you were to get Hansa releases in the US.
But also, I think Hansa licensed from the US for European release.

But I won't write all of the above in stone, but that's how I seem to recall things.

Hey Disco guy,

after checking my collection, I can see that most of the Boney M EP's that I have, are from Hansa.

However Hooray Hooray it's a holiday & Rivers of Babylon are also on 12" EP from Atlantic (US pressing), as special limited editions.

Maybe that's how some songs reached the US aswell.

Post subject:  SoulTrain Label

Yea the Soul Train Label was owned by Dick Griffey & Don Cornelius. They had a couple of hits,
notibly "Soul-Train Theme'75".

Well Griffey & Cornelius had a parting of the ways and split up.
Don took his patended 'Soul Train' brand name with him;
and Griffey took the record company and renamed it SOLAR Records-
-SOLAR for Sound Of Los Angeles Records.

He then developed a roster that included:
The Whispers,
Carrie Lucas,
Lakeside,
Shalimar,
Midnight Starr,
and more...

Solar was responsible for many many disco and R&B classics.
"UPTOWN FESTIVAL"--"GOTTA KEEP DANCIN"--"THE BEAT GOES ON"--FANTASTIC VOYAGE"--
"RIGHT IN THE SOCKET"--"THE SECOND TIME AROUND"--
"I'VE JUST BEGUN TO LOVE YOU"--"ONE FOR THE MONEY"
(and if you listen to Pete: "MAKE IT WITH YOU")

PETE'S NOTE:: JAY, Me La Mama!!
