Dancing dancing in paradise..
El Coco - Dancing In Paradise (1978, AVI/Quality)
I know I said I'd update yesterday. Once again I'm late (as usual), I wanted to get the Disco Delivery done yesterday, but let's just say my Saturday night went on a little longer than I anticipated (not that I'm complaining or anything)..
I'm hoping to work on the upcoming Disco Delivery entry some more tonight, in the mean time here's one of my favourite El Coco records, hell, probably one of my all time favourite disco records.. "Dancing In Paradise" is to me, one of the best things Rinder & Lewis ever did. Starts off with some of the most exquisite strings, then goes into that equally exquisite synth driven melody... It all comes together in what is truly one of the most sublime, escapist disco records I've ever heard..
I remember I first heard this track, not on it's own, but sampled on Ultra Naté's "Dear John," a great song off her excellent "Stranger Than Fiction" (2001, Strictly Rhythm) album. One of the best uses of a disco sample that I've heard so far.
Anyway, Rinder and Lewis are one duo whose productions I've really been taking a shine to in the last while or so. Most recently, I got their excellent "Seven Deadly Sins" LP in the mail, but unfortunately, decent copies of the "Dancing In Paradise" LP always seem to elude me. So until I get that, here's a rip of the 12'' I got a couple of months ago..
Hope this'll tie you all over until then, as for the next Disco Delivery, here's a hint: think "connection" and "movement."
