Import disco Charts
It’s the last of the charts, this is the end of the Carnet bleu ! I mean, I have some left in between the ones I published but they didn’t have so many different tunes that the ones featuring in the charts here. So it’s a goodbye to 1982 with Lamont Dozier’s nice and sweet "Shout About It", François Kevorkian doing a masterpiece with Rafael Cameron’s "All That’s Good To Be" with his great violon stabs. Wait, there’s "You Got The Power" by WAR ! My fave is Empress’ "Control Yourself" and of course "Make Up Your Mind" by Aurra. Special shout out to "Breakaway" by Pure Energy !
2) GOLDIE ALEXANDER : "Go Back"
So this is where Shalamar’s "Second Time Around" comes from.
3) ONENESS OF JUJU : "Every Way But Loose"
The intro is so NuPhonic !
4) LAMONT DOZIER : "Shout About It"
What an intro ! What a tuuuuuuuuune ! And did you hear the voices at 3’ ?
5) ROY HAMILTON : "Take Your Time"
Kinda funny and messy but the bass is good.
6) RAFAEL CAMERON : "All That’s Good To Me"
You can see the funk going places with that fab François K mix !
7) EMPRESS : "Control It"
I love Empress. Just the name is great. Imagne : "Hi my name is Empress !". And this song is all about AIDS prevention before the name was even found !
8) VICKY D : "This Beat Is Mine"
This one crossed the Ocean and was on France’s gay dancefloors.
You can tell I was getting fed up to listen to this little radio, I wasn’t paying attention like before !
11) XAVIER : "Love Is On The One"
Like a brit version of Prelude. Very 5 Star already.
12) FUSE ONE : "Silk" (instru)
I guess it’s part of my soul boy roots.
13) THE WHATNAUTS : "Help Is On The Way" (instru)
Shit they took off the vid
14) AURRA : "Make Up Your Mind"
Oh I loved to dance on this one !
15) PURE ENERGY : "Breakaway"
Deliciously yummy groove in the most Chicesque way !
16) WAR : "You Got The Power"
Strutting your stuff !
19) DOUBLE EXPOSURE : "After All This Time"
20) JUNIOR GISCOMBE : "Get Up And Dance"
It HAD to finish on a sour note : the vid is no longer on Youtube, the fuckers.
