The Saint propels the pretty disco sound

I'm opting for a real lightweight number to kick-off the end of summer. Can He Find Another One by Double Discovery. A record which has Boris Midney's magic stamped all over it. In fact he produced it, plays keyboard on it, conducted and produced it.

I sense a real Bobby O influence here. By 1982 when this was released Hi NRG was becoming very prominent in the clubs. It's got a real tea dance feeling. Makes me wanna sip a Cape Cod and sway to the beat. Calling this record cheerful would be an understatement. "De de de de diddi dee!"

Boris Midney seemed to specialize in this type of cheery, soaring vocal, orchestral type disco epic. Often just managing to land somewhere between cheese and brilliance. His most important projects included Beautiful Bend, Festival the U.S.A.-European Connection and the Pinocchio disco opus recorded as Masquerade. All of which were highly revered by legendary SAINT d.j.'s like Robbie Leslie and Michael Fierman.

The Saint's fantastic dome.

It actually didn't open until 1980, so there! The media was calling disco dead but some of us truly knew otherwise.
