- Disco sound special vol. 3
- Victor musical industries
This is the third volume of the Disco sound special series. Maybe it isn’t as strong as the second volume, but it also has it’s moments. It’s only a single LP release and it follows the line of the series except there’s no songs by any local bands. There’s some basic good disco tracks like “Save me”, “I like it” and “Fly, Robin, fly” by Silver Convention, “Lady pump” by Penny McLean, “Ooh what a night” by Linda G. Thompson and “Sexy lady” by Jumbo 76. What’s weird, there’s “Bump the bump pt. 2″ by Black Buster and “Bump me baby pt. 1″ by Dooley Silverspoon that both appear also on the second volume.
The best ones on this album include funky disco tracks “Funky lovin’” and “Hi fi woman” by the French group Ice - a band that used also names Lafayette afro-rock band, Bobby Boyd congress and Crispy & co. among some others. Ice tracks are both taken from their album Frisco disco (US release was named Import/export) from 1975. The Japanese also seem to have loved the Philippine group Black Buster a lot as there’s again three songs from them in this compilation. Besides the mentioned “Bump the bump pt. 2″, there’s funky midtempo song “Hassle pt. 1″ and quite similar “Old man”, that starts with a nice break. Latter is propably their best known track and have been reissued several times. All the three songs from Black Buster are originally released on their Bump the bump album from 1975. Can’t help it, I just got to love these Japanese compilations.
