    Both these songs were at the forefront of the Disco movement that was to come to prominence in the 70's, although the Intruders had been together since the early 60's. With the production and writing partnership of Gamble and Huff they gained hit status with the "Philadelphia sound", whilst George McCrae was associated with KC and the Sunshine Band

    The 70's had so much going for it, because along with the Disco revolution, there was also the ongoing evolution of the sixties "British Invasion" bands, the home grown pop of Slade, Bay City Rollers, etc,, the emergence of "Glam Rock", and later on the punk evolution. Whilst all these movements may have had roots in the 60's, the 70's was truly a revolution in popular music, and it all happened in 10 short years.

    On top of that there was the heavier rock plus the prog rock and more experimental kind of neuveau clasical stuff like Tomita.

    Indeed Virgo, and not forgetting the rock 'n' roll revival too, such as Showaddywaddy, Darts, Hank Mizell, Rocky Sharpe etc.

    I just saw on my cats' treats that this month is Pride Month. Is that something new?

    Anyway it's the last day of the month, so for anyone on here that is in the LGBTQ+ alphabet soup, this one is for you and I hope you've enjoyed your special month.



    (I wonder if anyone will dare to like this. Live and let live I say!)

    Given this video and the Village people one you posted before, I imaging that line dancing was popular at the time.

    This was on the B side of Mungo Jerry's Lady Rose. I'd heard it on an older friends record when he flipped it over. I was too young to know exactly what it was about, but not too young too young to realise it wasn't there anymore when I bought the single.



    and the A side

It was great fun though we didn't dress up, loads of people did though.
