leedu disko





Janina Miščiukaitė - Estradinės dainos 7"
Melodiya C62-15565-6
Amžinas šokis

laiskust ei vabanda, nii et ruttu uusi postitusi tegema. natuke jälle petan, sest seda lugu on juba kuuldud minu teises melodiya raadiokülalisshows, aga praegu saab vähemalt demonstreerida lahedat plaadiümbrist.
laulja kohta ei tea ma midagi, peale selle, et ta on leedust, loo "Amžinas šokis" autor on leedukas ja plaat on samuti sisse mängitud leedukate poolt. loo nimi peaks tähendama 'õhtust tantsu'. lindistatud aastal 1981. plaadil on neli lugu, see on parim diskolugu, lisaks ka G. Moroderi kaver.
plaat saigi omal ajal ostetud pildi ja Donna Summeri/Giorgio Moroderi kaveri pärast. viimane osutus isegi jamaks, seda enam oligi rõõmustavam, et originaallugu on parim. plaadi ostsin tartu viimase kümnendi lahedaimast kaltsukast. mida ometigi kõik teavad, kus olid pikka aega linna odavaimad vinüülid ning ikka ja jälle võib sealt leida midagi huvitavat. see singel sai ostetud umbes 2003/2004, kui ma olin alustanud õpinguid tartu ülikoolis. kuidagi ma sinna poodi sattusin ja seal oli väga palju plaate. kahjuks ei olnud mul tollal sellist teadmiste ega kogemuste pagasit kui praegu. tundmatuid plaate julgesin osta ainult pildi järgi. kuidas küll praegu tahaks tagasi minna ja need seitsmetollised jälle läbi käia.

sorry for long silence. let me continue with disco for a while. i present you piece of lithuanian discofunk. it's original track, though i had bought this 7" because of G. Moroder cover on it. even if it is crap, but this song is nice, only good song on that ep. i bought it 6 years ago from my favorite record spot in Tartu, though they reduced their record section. how i would like to go back there in it's glory days, with knowledge and experience i have today.

I'm interesting, maybe Kuprevicus (ARGO's leader) has some relation to this recording? Because I do know only disco music made in Lithuania...

i'm sorry i didn't write more about this record. this record is written by M. Tamošiunas, he is also "art director" of this record. he was behind two lithuanian dance music records that i have already introduced here, he was in Oktava. so no relation to Argo, i guess.

tomorrow i'll put up other disco-funk tracks from Lithuania, by Lithuanian group Nerija from their 1981 release. they have quite good albums, i like their 1976 LP with one great psychpop track. i'll post it in summer too.

You mentioned that on this EP:

Amžinas šokis

That there was a cover version of a Moroder track...I know you said it was crap but I wonder which Moroder track was it?

As someone from England, I have been discovering the wonderful world of Eastern European & USSR music from the 70s and 80s, especially disco, prog and electronic music. I love how each country added their own ''flavour' to the then western musical genres, it makes the music sound far fresher to my ears than many western records of the 70s & 80s.

It is blogs like yours that has given me an education and though the language barrier can be difficult, I appreciate you also providing an English translation to your posts.
