Disco Monk

Today I'm posting a new discovery song called "Let's Get Together" by Pam Todd And Love Exchange. The first time I heard this song, I immediately recognized it since I had no idea that this one was the original of one of my favorite house songs ever. The version that I know was sung by Tyree; little that I knew it was a cover! I am beginning to become suspicious of all my favorite house songs now and I must embark on a hunt since I have become a "Disco Monk".
This one is completely different than the house version. I love the arrangements on this one, specially the Moog Synthesizers and I'm loving Pam's voice. I learned that this was their first LP and was produced by underground disco hero Greg Carmichael who is known for his spacey, funky sound. The LP featured cult items such as the title track, "Making Love" and "Can't Hold This Feeling" which I have yet to hear. Also, there was a follow up from this LP in 1978 under the name Pam Todd & The Gold Bullion Band which produced a minor club hit called "Baise Moi (Kiss Me)". I am planing to check this out and will keep you posted. Enjoy

  2. That's a good question. To spread a monk like devotion and love to disco to the world with all it's eccentricities, uniqueness and ramifications
