3 min 20 not 80 seconds...

Space is the Place! Nostromo's 'Around the World in 80 Seconds' features on the flip side of his disco-fied take on the theme from 'Alien'. It seems Nostromo was obsessed with space movies, later releasing a version of the theme from 'The Black Hole' and also 'Darth Vader's Theme' remade as 'The Imperial March'. Strangely this kitsch Disco was being released on Bronze Records, home to Motorhead, Uriah Heap, Hawkwind and Sally Oldfield, they did also, however, release a couple of Osibisa albums. Anyway check this for authentic far flung Space Disco from back in '79.

Hello,
I hope all is well with you.
I have seen your blog today and noticed the variety of music I could listen to.
I just have one request and that's checking some Electronic tunes for me.
It's because you are posting diverse styles in your blog and all is about past.

The tracks I'm loking for are for 70 and 80 decades and you should be able to help me.

Please listen to these samples:

The tracks: 5,6,7,8,9, and 10 are really important to me.


Let me know if you know any of these Tracks.
The name of each track or musician can help me a lot.

Thanks in advance..
Best Regards,
Maestro.

I haven't had much luck with finding out what those tracks are, someone has pointed out who to ask, so I shall pass them on

hey, i recently found a record by The Electric Moog Orchestra of all starwars tunes. most are pretty standard bloopy campy moog tunes, but their version of Imperial Attack is a pretty rad disco track with some nice drums and a sweet reverby guitar solo. (takes a second to get into it)
