Egypt, Egypt was one of the classics of 80's Electro

Greg J. Broussard is the L.A. based artist known as Egyptian Lover.  He released 8 l.p.'s and numerous twelve inch singles.  But most likely the most well known classic was Egypt, Egypt.  It was a massive record at the Fun House among other clubs.

LIFE WITH YOU an italo disco masterpiece

I'm posting this again because I'm adding the instrumental.  It's just as eerie and italo disco magic as the vocal version.
From the intro. which is clearly inspired by Trans Europe Express to every moody italo disco beat The Expansives Life With You, Leader Records Italy 1982 is just the type of dance record that I give ten's across the board.  So sublime it's impossible for me to listen to it only once but on repeat over and over again.


Anybody with a copy knows that they are sitting on gold, just like Sensitive's Driving the collectors never give up on trying to track this one down.
Francesco Rago has been part of a few of my favorite italo disco acts including lectric workers, cariocas, atelier folie, message from future and Wanexa.  His partner GianLuigi Farina was in the same acts and even had a solo 12 inch with Sailing in a dreamboat listed as Sola Farina which was released in 1984.

A few Rah Band gems

As unusual an act as was Richard Hewson's Rah Band they hit pay dirt twice.  Both The Crunch in 1977 and Clouds across the Moon in 1985 made it to #6 on the U.K. pop charts.

But for me there is no forgetting Messages from the Stars.  Grab my zip to enjoy these fun songs.

BUST THAT NUT

Poopee and the N.Y. Squirrels is just about the craziest name for an artist ever!  We'll have to thank the genius Patrick Adams for this one.


This disco outrageousness from 1981 also features a mix by the amazing John Morales.    Enjoy it and do whatever you want I'm not making any suggestions!
