I have already done a #MusicMonday, so I thought I would do a #ThrowbackThursday post. 🙂 Here are three great disco tracks from the following David Christie albums: Back Fire, Frantique, and Flashback. I hope you enjoy the songs, happy listening everyone!
Here is a nice selection of great dance tracks from David Christie’s rare and most sought-after LP “Back Fire” – a disco soul album, and mixed by the famous American record producer, and originator of the 12″ single, Tom Moulton.
“Back Fire” has never been re-released; however, the only song to be officially released from the album is “Don’t Stop Me (I like it)” which is available to purchase from digital download stores online!
Here is a collection of songs co-written by David Christie for other artists, which includes Grace Jones, Anne Marie David, and Sylvie Vartan. This shows David’s musical versatility, not only was he a great singer and musician, but also a great songwriter/composer too!
Also, included here are two artist’s covers of David’s songs: Marboo’s version of “Falling In Love In Summertime Is Dynamite”; and Loose Change’s interpretation of “All Night Man”. See below for all songs!
Anne Marie David – Pour Une Heure, Une Seconde (ForOne Hour, OneSecond) 1974
“Don’t Stop Me (I Like It)” is a great full-powered disco track from David Christie’s highly acclaimed and sought after album “Back Fire” (Tom N’ Jerry Records). The single was originally released from the album “Love Is The Most Important Thing” (Harmony Records) in 1977. And the 12″ album version from “Back Fire” (Tom Moulton Mix) was popular in discotheques and became a hit in the US dance charts at #37 in 1978 – highly recommended listening!
Grace Jones – Do Or Die /Pride/ Fame Medley (1978)
Sit back and enjoy the legendary Miss Grace Jones perform this disco medley from her second album titled “Fame”, which was written by David Christie and Jack Robinson, and was produced/mixed by Tom Moulton. The title track “Fame” and “Do Or Die”, from the 1978 album, were massive hits – both singles reached #3 in the US disco charts in the same year.
David and Jack also wrote another song for Grace’s third studio disco album, “Muse”, titled “Saved”. Both albums “Fame” and “Muse” were chart hits in Sweden and the US – check them out!
