MECO: ‘Star Wars Theme / Cantina Band’ (RCA XB 1028) (BNDA debut 7/23/77)
Here it is, the sensational smash hit disco treatment of the big US sci-fi movie theme! Full of freaky effects and great stereo, it bridges into more music from the flick before ending on the catchy theme again.
EDDIE HENDERSON: ‘Say You Will’ (Capitol CL 15937)
Driving fast jazz-funk trumpet twirler, madly infectious and already a dancefloor filler!
ROSE ROYCE: ‘Do Your Dance’ / ‘It Makes You Feel Like Dancin’’ (from LP ‘Full Bloom’, Whitfield K 56394) (BNDA debut 9/24/77)
‘Car Wash’ handclaps dominate these slightly slinkier funkers, which may be a little too long at 9:15 and 8:43 for the slower tempo, despite interestingly original instrumental developments and great sound. Then there’s ‘You Can’t Please Everybody’ for ‘Put Your Money’ fans!
JOHN DAVIS & THE MONSTER ORCHESTRA: ‘The Magic Is You’ / ‘You’re The One’ (Polydor 2058923) (BNDA debut 6/25/77)
Exciting rhythm rattlers with smooth singing, biting brass and bouncy beat should be big.
