Body to Body to Body

O.R.S. aka Orlando Riva Sound are probably best known for their Salsoul hit 'Moon Boots', on a later version of the 12" (around 1978) the flipside came out with this deep & sexy midtempo, keys heavy Disco item, with some fantastic vocals. While 'Moon Boots' was Tom Moulton produced, 'Body to Body Boogie' was produced by Bobby 'DJ' Guttadaro, who worked with Donna Summer, Kelly Marie, Man Parrish, Class, Loleatta Hollaway, BT Express and many others. Bobby dj'ed at New York club Infinity, apparently the first club to really utilize neaon in the interior and a place that attracted a mixed up crowd of transvestites, movie stars, gays, straights, bisexuals, even hobo's, who would all come to dance on the block long dancefloor. The club burned down in 1979 and Bobby died later in 1989 at the age of 41... Anyway another unmissable number for ya...

Excellent post as usual, I'm enjoing playing most of these tracks out as the download quality isnt too bad.

cool Mark, where are u playing them? btw I could upload them at a higher rate, but that's just not my policy, a (weak) attempt to encourage people to go out and buy things, and hunt down the tracks, but I guess thats not always likely...

I play them at a party my friends and I promote once a month, I have a back room all to myself..so that means I can pretty much play what I like.

I love it!!!

BTW, I'm from the UK, near Nottingham.
