Gene Pitney - Train of thought

Gene getting down with a disco sound and a cover of a song originally recorded by Cher.

Gene Pitney - She's a heartbreaker

Another soulful outing from Gene Pitney, this one popular in northern soul circles.

Gene Pitney - That girl belongs to yesterday

Another 60s pop favourite of mine, a soulful belter written by Jagger/Richards. Low quality video, high quality song.

Neil Diamond - Solitary Man


(image) Possibly a guilty pleasure but I love everything about the original 1966 recording of this song.

Melinda was mine
'Til the time
That I found her
Holding Jim
Loving him

Then Sue came along
Loved me strong
That's what I thought
Me and Sue
That died too

Don't know that I will
But until I can find me
A girl who'll stay
And won't play games behind me
I'll be what I am
A solitary man
Solitary man

I've had it to here
Bein' where
Love's a small world
Part-time thing
Paper ring

I know it's been done
Havin' one
Girl who loves you
Right or wrong
We go strong

Don't know that I will
But until I can find me
The girl who'll stay
And won't play games behind me
I'll be what I am
A solitary man
Solitary man

Curtis McClaine - Let's Get Busy (Dub Mix)


This one from 1988 with the Dub Mix I rediscovered after hearing it on the Disco Bloodbath mix for Resident Advisor. Lovely wonky sound FX over the drum intro.

Jungle Wonz - The Jungle


(image) Marshall Jefferson with the smoother sound of Chicago house in 1986.

Adonis - We're Rockin' Down the House


(image) Another raw and moody jack track from the early days of Trax Records.

Sweet D - Thank Ya


(image) Possibly my favourite release from Trax Records back in the day. It utilises a slightly warped-sounding riff sample from Cheryl Lynn 'You Saved My Day'. Uplifting, repetitive, house baby!

Lovely clip of The Velvelettes performing this Johnny Bristol and Harvey Fuqua song also recorded by Diana Ross.

Chubby Checker - At the Discotheque


(object) (embed)

Great clip of Chubby Checker doing this mod classic. Always loved the way he pronunces it "At the Disco-tey ... Hey Hey Hey!". Class!

(object) (embed)

Love this clip!

Brenda Holloway - When I'm Gone


(object) (embed)

The Flirtations - Nothing But a Heartache


(object) (embed)

Fantastic song, orange jump suits and incongruous setting combine to make this a clip of video genius, particularly the shot towards the end when the girls are standing on stone pillars. Thanks for the find Chas!

Tommy Hunt - One Fine Morning


(object) (embed)

Vintage TV clip (from Germany?) of Tommy Hunt doing this Northern Soul / Disco classic - thanks Fritz51355 I love this!!!

Ronnie Dyson - All Over Your Face


(image) Only one of my favourite 80s disco (or is that boogie?) tracks of all time.

Tony Clarke - The Entertainer


(object) (embed)

There's lots of things to love about this clip, not least the song. But elevating this performance even more than Tony (I assume it's really him?), his amazing quiff and less than amazing lip synching, is the emcee's intro "... Tony Clarke boomeranged way out into stardom with the tune..." ...
