Rhythm Heritage, Disco-Fied. ABC Records, ABCD-934. 1975.
Holy Cow! Some
cocaine fiend art director probably thought this was super cool when he designed it. When I saw this at a garage sale this summer I knew I had to buy it. The striped sock, the wooden clog, the fluff on the shoe, the fingernails on the gnarly hand, it’s just too perfect. Big names on here include Michael Omartain and Lee Ritenour. Some of the disco-fied songs include “Baretta’s Theme,” “Theme from S.W.A.T.,” “My Cherie Amour” from Stevie Wonder, and “Three Days of the Condor” (the movie starred Robert Redford and was not disco oriented).
