Earl Young

Breaking down the nuances of the Philly disco sound and the Uptight beat!!!!

Boney M - Rasputin

We've always been casual fans of Boney M, but lately they've really been striking a chord with us, no pun intended. This pair of videos rely heavily on footage from Boney M's famous trip to Russia to promote this ode to the titular enigmatic faith healer.

Aug & Jools - Indian Rope Man

There are few better organ players than Brian Auger, if there are any at all. Here he is on the Tom Jones Show with his long time accomplice, Julie Driscoll, performing what appears to be an exclusively pre-recorded version of their mod dancefloor classic, Indian Rope Man.

Abbe May - Mammalian Locomotion

I'm not sure what they're putting in the water in Australia, but we need some of it here in NY.
This video does look suspiciously familiar, however.
