Assorted ColorApart from the well known Disco No Disco compilations the Strut label also releases other lesser known but nevertheless brilliant compilations. One of them documents the story of the Compass Point Studios on the Bahamas. Back in the late 70’s and early 80’s, when Sly and Robbie where residents at Compass Point, the studios of Island Records boss Chris Blackwell were a reference mark for exotic adventurous dubby vibes. Lizzy Mercier Descloux, the Tom Tom Club and Talking Heads were probably among the first to get some fresh ideas down in Nassau.
The compilation opens with my favourite Grace Jones song My Jamaican Guy. It reminded me that this collaboration of Grace Jones with Sly and Robbie was already documented on the Compass Point Sessions which contains the best recordings Grace Jones ever did. I already posted Warm Leatherette a while ago which is also from these sessions. One of the last tracks is a former unknown nice Chaz Chankel collaboration.

Grace Jones – My Jamaican Guy
Chaz Jankel feat. Laura Weymouth – Whisper

What’s next? dEUS will bring out a new album soon. The first single of that album is promising. I’m not really a diehard dEUS fan. I don’t like all their songs because they tend to sound either as something from GirlsandBoys (bad) or from JJ Cale (good) but Theme From Turnpike is an exception and a favourite of mine, together with the Magnus album Tom Barman did together with CJ Bolland. It seems that they made a more dance oriented album this time which is offcourse pretty fine by me. The title is also appealing considering the fact that I’m a architect myself.

dEUS – The Architect

For now, I add again a mix of rather obscure and more popular disco, rare grooves and assorted dance music.

Powerline – Double Journey
Alice Russell - All Over Now
Jackson Sisters – Miracles
Fred Wesley & The JB's – Blow Your Head
The Crusaders – Free As The Wind
Nightfall – Keep It Up 1977 disco version
Jo Boyer – Isabelle And The Rain 1978 disco version
Unlimited Touch – I Hear Music In The Street
Funky Bureau – Clap Your Hands Together 1977
Black Gold – C'mon Stop 1983
Delegation – Heartache No. 9
The Stylistics – Fly 1978 disco 12*
B.W.H. – Stop 1983 basically, a big classic groove this one
Trippy Disco – Miami Playa heard this song for the first time on a podcast service somewhere, looked up what it was but couldn’t find it anywhere until this week. A very welcome addition to an ever growing network of disco lovers on myspace.

La Prohibita – Flash
La Terremoto de Alcorcon – Time Goes By Con Loli
About a year ago I posted a couple of video’s of some Spanish transvamps I saw at Razmatazz in Barcelona. If it may concern anyone, these are the soundtracks to those video’s.

Erotic Dissidents – Move Your Ass And Feel The Beat
More New Beat with this favourite of mine from back then. Later on I discovered that they stole that groove from Yellow’s Bostich, but it stays a nice tune with a very eye-catching provocative stage show back then.
