Playing tracks by
The Trammps, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Lollipops, The Exciters, The Shirelles and more.
R&B songs (mostly) from the pre-disco era (1958-1978), when you had to put a coin in the jukebox to hear the latest hits. It was before disco broke loose (after the success of the movie 'Saturday Night Fever') and discotheques were all over the place. The opening track from the Trammps sums it up best: it contains disco elements, but the vocals are based on doo wop and gospel. The song is the bridge between two periods, just like the uptempo soul track from Gladys Knight & the Pips. Enjoy! Check out my blog http://professoreddy.blogspot.nl/2013/09/between-doo-wop-disco-r-hits-from.html and my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/djprofessoreddy/ as well! Next week I will strictly play classic seventies and early eighties soul. Picture from Taylor LaShae
