Disco Fire, K-Tel
Thanks for your 'Likes’ today for my two recent font use submissions, Petra Černocká – “Koukej, se mnou si píseň broukej” / “Hádej, mámo” single cover and Klaus Wunderlich – Hammond Pops 8 album art.
I always appreciate something with a Valérie Čižmárová connection so I’ve 'Liked’ this submission of yours. I keep wondering to myself how many people in the English-speaking world are even aware that, amongst 'I Feel Love’ and other notable releases, Donna Summer recorded a song called 'Wasted’, which was unknown to me until Valérie Čižmárová came along in Cyberspace from 1970s Czechoslovakia with 'Tikot všech hodin’ ('Ticking All The Time’)!
I’ve got one of those K-Tel Disco compilations, by the way – 'Disco Fever’, from 1977. It’s a pretty impressive set, but it hasn’t quite got dance step instructions! It has got Baccara’s classic 'Yes Sir, I Can Boogie’ on it, though, which is another one of those 'Girls Of The Golden East’ connections, via Věra Špinarová's 'Já mám ráda boogie’ ('I Love Boogie’), the famously huge-voiced Věra Špinarová being the one who incredibly once commented that she 'envied’ Valérie Čižmárová's voice. Valérie Čižmárová took on their slightly lesser-known 'Sorry I’m A Lady’ as 'Tak se pozná dáma’ ('So You Know I’m A Lady’), incidentally.
