Odyssey – Native New Yorker (1977)

Well, obviously, in 1977, I was mainly listening to the Pistols and The Clash and not Grease, Saturday Night Fever and commercial (US chart based) radio. Honest.

Only 13 in 1977, I loved all the early disco stuff such as Van McCoy’s “The Hustle”, KC and the Sunshine Band, Kool and the Gang, etc. A year or so later, Chic and Nile Rodgers raised the bar for one strand of more funk based disco while, at the same time, Giorgio Moroder (with Donna Summer and Blondie) created some of the early blueprints for house and techno.

But, amidst all this, I always loved this record. Lush; melanch0lic, but uplifting; with a killer bass and piano, understated guitar and strings to die for.

Pop music perfection.
