New York City Girl...
Not sure if I have ever posted a disco song on Spools before and although I am not a great fan of disco there are some songs that defy their genre and are just great tunes, no matter how they are labelled.
One such track is Odyssey's 1977 classic "Native New Yorker", one of the most enduring tracks from that era. I just recently discovered that it is a cover of a Frankie Valli song from the same year but the New Yorkers made it their own to the extent that most people just think of it as an Odyssey song. I always think the sax at the start could have come straight out of a Scorcese film in the 70's.
