Pockets had a big disco hit in 1979 with a song called "Catch Me" :D
It was remixed by Jim Burgess I think. :roll:
Used to play it all the time.

BTW....I love Gene Farrow - "Move your Body" :lol:
Cheesy, yes, but a floorfiller when it came out nonetheless!! :twisted:

Hey!
I'm going to check out that Pockets track, 'cos I don't think I've heard it yet. The only other one I know by them is something called "Elusive Lady" but no way is it of the same calibre as "Come Go With Me"
As for Gene Farrow, I'm a bit reluctant to admit this, but I was one of those who filled the Floor!! :lol:

The Robin Beck of Sweet Talk fame is a sure fire winner for me but she is not strictly a one hit wonder as after a gap of nearly 10 years she had a global hit with "First Time" which was very cheesy for my likes..You remember..it was from the Coca-Cola advert and it was re-released on numerous occassions over the years in various dance formats!
Not familiar with the other artists, so thanks for bringing them to my attention

If/when you order your copy of "Do You Speak French" make sure to get an original European 7" pressing from Holland, France or Germany, as the American AVI label 12" realese is censored. It is longer but wouldn't you rather hear the girls shout words like "Strip Tease" than get some additional sax solos?

Stone are excellent rare groove picks. they only made like 5 I think.
their best jams:

Time 1981
Girl I like the way that you move 1982
Crazy 1983

But how about Bernice Watkins?

with Mahogany: Ride on the Rhythm? 1982
solo: Let's call it a day? 1984

or Mahogany: My Heart Goes Boom 1986
not sure if that's Bernice or a new girl singin' that one?
