>> R.I.P Donna Summer

Donna Summer died yesterday, 17th of May after fighting a long battle with cancer. The five-time Grammy winner rose to the top of the charts during the 70s and arguably did more than anyone to make disco cool.

Like the King of Pop or the Queen of Soul, Donna Summer had the title fitting of musical royalty too — the Queen of Disco.

Here is Donna with Giorgio Moroders innovative production of this disco-style song, "I Feel Love" recorded in 1977 with an entirely synthesized backing track, spawned imitators in the disco genre, and was influential in the development of techno.

>> You dont like music...

...if you dont like Curtis Mayfield. He is best known for his music with The Impressions during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s and for composing the soundtrack to the blaxploitation film Super Fly. Most famous song is of course Move On Up from his debut Curtis [1970]

Here is the song Summer Hot, last track from the late album Honesty [1983]. Dear God what a brilliant bassline!

>> He Was A Friend Of Mine

Simple is beautiful! "The Basement Tapes", a 1975 studio album by Bob Dylan and The Band. The songs featuring Dylan's vocals were recorded in 1967, eight years before the album's release, at houses in and around Woodstock, New York, where Dylan and the Band lived. Although most of the Dylan songs had appeared on bootleg records, The Basement Tapes marked their first official release.

It a traditional folk song and was first recorded by musicologist couple John A. and Ruby Terrill Lomax in 1939.
