Disco Friday #6 - Ladies Choice
Today's Disco Legends choices come courtesy of Mrs CC.
Londoner Tina Charles hit the top spot with I Love to Love (But My Baby Loves to Dance ) in 1976.She decided against using her actual surname Hoskins lest she get confused with that other disco diva Mary Hopkins.
Tina is followed by senoritas Mayte Mateos and Maria Mendiola known collectively as Baccara with Yes Sir, I Can Boogie a number 1 in 1977 when punk was sweeping Britain.
I've spared you this one before but Mrs CC is not quite so generous. They split in 1981 no doubt citing musical differences and (good God) set up two rival Baccaras.
By way of compensation we finish with Wild Cherry a band I suspect that even the punks had time for.
Play that funky music
