TOO SLOW TO DISCO: The 70s LA Softrockers Start To Move Their Feet...But Slowly

"The second radio mix by DJ Supermarkt. The LA softrockers return, but find out they are 'too slow to disco' yet. The California singer/songwriters suddenly get attracted to rhythm and slowly start to move their feet. This mix captures them shortly before going completely disco!  This time we find: an ex-Monkee rapping, a weird erotic Christmas song by Georgie Fame, the 70s 'super-studio-group' the Attitudes, who played on thousands of records, and commercial breaks by Frank Zappa, Jefferson Airplane, Spliff (The Nina Hagen Band), plus lots of other forgotten diamonds. Enjoy and take the trip."
