Steamy Soul Funk & Disco Part 5

Enjoy this 5th part of Steamy Soul Funk And Disco! This series is the up-tempo, danceable variant of Groovy, Sexy & Soulful: soul that supposes to bring more excitement on the dance floor than in the bedroom. When disco became popular around the mid-seventies, many soul artists, like Temptations singer David Ruffin, moved into this direction, which seemed a natural step forward. But by the end of the decade all of a sudden models like Grace Jones and Amanda Lear were the real disco stars. The latter was the muse of painter Pablo Picasso and former girlfriend of Roxy Music front man Bryan Ferry, who became infected with the disco virus as well. His new album ‘Avonmore’ is out on the 17th of November. It contains contributions from Nile Rodgers, Johnny Marr and, surprisingly, Ronnie Spector!
