Spandau Ballet - Chant No 1 (Reformation 1982) A good friend discovered this song and I was very curious when he told me about a Disco gem by Spandau Ballet. We all know the Pop hits like `Gold` or `True` from listening to the Radio but this Track is different and unexpected after listen to it for the first time. No long intro, straight into the Groove. The Guitar line is so nice. Funky Horns by Begger & Co.

First Touch Top Ten favorites

Rasa - Question In My Mind (Govinda Records 1978) This song is on their album “Everything You See In Me” which is a killer Funk, Rock, AOR, and spiritual Soul Album. As a lover of the AOR Sound and always on the hunt for that style I came across this gem on a Record Fair in France in the mid 90ies. The Seller was playing it out on a portable Turntable and I was blown away immediately. Glad I bought it that day because it is another hard-to-find Record in Germany.

Cheryl Lynn - Fix it (CBS 1983) The `Preppie` album includes one of her best-known songs `Encore`. I prefer `Fix it`- a sweet soulful Boogie track. Lush piano chords and very nice sounding synths. Michael Henderson on bass plays it smooth. Lynn´s wonderful vocals fit perfectly in.

Incognito - Parisienne Girl (Ensign Records 1980) Heard this one late night on the german radio around 82. At that time I was recording everything on tape as it was the only way to get free music for a broke rollerskater youngster. As they didn’t mention the title or group I was guessing it could be Azymuth because of the typical mix of Disco and Latin. It was 92 when I bought the CD Reissue of the album when I eventually found out it was Incognito. I never had the Original vinyl in my hands and never had the chance to find it in West-Germany.

Hot Chocolate - Heaven is in the back Seat of my Cadillac (RAK Records 1976) This tune is so pure. Very dirty and raw. The absolute opposite of a fancy glamour sounding Disco track. Loving the simple but powerful orchestration in this song.
