Yes I was Bay City Rollers smitten but come on guys I was not even a teenager yet!
OH NO DON'T STOP THE MUSIC!
MASSIVE DISCO REMIX of the the Bay City Rollers compliments of the Canadian Record Pool in 1977.
Those guys must have had a hot thing going. They actually were responsible for several mixes which were big crowd-pleasers in the states. I don't think I ever saw mixes in the states credited to a record pool though clearly most of the guys doing the mixes back in the day were in the pool that David Mancuso put together in mid 1975. From whose ashes later rose Judy Weinstein's For the Record. A pool which has featured all the big New York star d.j.' over the years and up until it folded, not that long ago. This batch featured the Superstar New York City DJ Kings like Junior Vasquez, David Morales and Frankie Knuckles.
In this vintage photo we have Judy, RCA's Tony King, T.O. Featherstonshaw, Jane Brinton and a young and dashing David Steele from Polydor. It was taken at The Paradise Garage for the 1 1/2 year anniversary of For the Record.
I mean hell the Bay City Rollers! The boys 'o tartan from Scotland making the boogier's get their grooves on in serious disco's in places like New York City and London and L.A. Peaking at #24 on the Billboard Dance Charts in 1976 on import.
Well they did just that. Had it been picked up in the States it probably would have been even more massive. It only got a 45" 7" release there.
At the time I didn't know a thing about this 12". If I had I would have gone to great efforts to get my allowance together to buy a copy. I was definitely a rollers fan and not just for their only #1 pop hit in the states, Saturday Night (S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y NIGHT). I think I had about five of their l.p.'s and I could sing along to a lot of their songs. Oh the innocence of youth!
