Greetings ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the wonderful world of Cocktail Disco.

And what does Cocktail Disco refer to you may ask? Well, as you might know, for many years I have been a fervent collector of the Disco genre, which between 1975 and 1979 was immensely popular not only in clubs, but also in the real world; and as such it developed many a sub genre.

There was Disco Soul, Philly Disco, Disco Rap, Disco Funk, Disco Not Disco, Boogie etc. they all had their distinctive sound, and have been thoroughly exposed and compiled in recent times.

Over years of vintage vinyl hunting, one particular style seemed to regularly take up more shelf space in my Disco-theque. It had a sound that was borrowing from most others, but still retained it's character. Rich orchestrations, a touch of Latin influence, the ubiquitous 4/4 Disco beat, and rather over the top vocals, it had an evident sense of drama involved.

Maybe some would find it cheesy, I would rather say cheeky and glamorous, something that would be quite fit for a Broadway musical show.

Since no one bothered to coin it a name I felt Cocktail Disco was simply appropriate enough.

Rest assured that again I've carefully handpicked for you the best and rarer gems, records released mostly on small labels, that were always hard to come by. I have also preferred to feature them in their unaltered, full-length glory.

Imagine yourself lounging on the sundeck of a flamboyant cruise boat sailing on the Caribbean seas. The sun is about to set, you're sipping a coconutty drink, it's been a very lazy day and your mind casually wanders. The light breeze brings you echoes of music, isn't that an orchestra playing? Lush strings and mellow horns, Latin congas and a crooning diva. They must surely be rehearsing for tonight's captain's ball. You're invited to his table tonight, shouldn't it be time to get ready? What would you be wearing?

So many things to think of, and then there's that cocktail which is a bit too sweet. Why not have another one first and take it from there, there is time, all the time in the world. Savour the moment; Cocktail Disco is for those relaxing times.
