passion close at hand



Today, a classic Euro-Disco track from Space, who are apparently still doing live performances in former Soviet bloc countries, much like other Italo and Euro acts of the late 70s and early 80s. "Save Your Love For Me" clocks in at about 133 bpm, and has much in common with Moroder's sound of the time-- arpeggiations galore, thick kicks, and sweetly sentimental harmonies. What differentiates it, though, is that Madeline Bell has a set of pipes that could blow Donna Summer out of the water on most days-- soul, range and great glissandos. Thanks to Leo for giving me this record a while back-- thoroughly enjoyable disco sounds.

Space- Save Your Love For Me

Also, if you're in the Bay Area, it would behoove you to go to Manquake tonight at the Gang Way. DJ Bus Station John has the best disco record collection in the city, and it is guaranteed to be a hugely fun and hugely gay time.
