Eddy's 80s Grooves Part 9 (Best Of 1985)

The Pointer Sisters
Disco became a blur in the years after the commercial backlash in 1980. It was dance music for clubs again and difficult to play on the radio (with some exceptions, of course), meanwhile house and hiphop were knocking on the door. The fading of disco is often called post-disco. Unlike disco music, post-disco usually lacked the typical string orchestration and featured more drum machines, synthesizers, sequencers and 4/4 time signature. Soulful vocals, however, remained an essence of post-disco. The main force in post-disco were mainly one-hit wonders and short-lived collaborations, while record producers and dj's played a significant role in post-disco in general. (source: Wikipedia.com).
