The disco is starting slightly later this week due to the DJ losing his sequined shirt earlier, but with no further ado it's time to start the tunes off tonight with a disco classic from 1975 from the one and only Donna Summer. Recorded on her back on the studio floor with the lights out, apparently in order to achieve that famous vocal, it was hardly surprising that the Beeb, in their usual "saving the nation from filth" manner banned "Love To Love You Baby", which according to Time magazine had Summer simulating 22 orgasms throughout the song. I've often wondered which poor sod at Time magazine drew the short straw and had to count them.
One of the most iconic songs of all time "Love To Love You Baby" just gets better and better as it slowly unfolds its swirling beauty over almost seventeen minutes of disco magic...
