The Dancing Machine

Obscure record offering borderline amateur renditions of okay seventies material. What’s nice about the recording is the ridiculously upfront percussion and the Curtis-wannabe falsetto singing. Even tracks like Get Dancin’ and I Got the Music In Me manage to transcent their originals ’cause of the strange mix, albeit barely. Most tracks are winners if you are in a generous mood but the absolute killer track on here is Boogie Down. At the end the musicians get in a jam mode and the whole band takes off like a Concorde. Bad luck the engineer thought that was the point to start his fade out so it’s a killer track that could have been. I like how the piano suddenly sounds like a steel drum. Back cover has info on the various dance instructors this is a promotional record for. Most are associated with some dance event called Dance Caravan Blue. One of the 8 instructors is Art Stone, prominent figure in the seventies dance instructor’s maffia.

Listen to Boogie Down
