Various ‎– Maxi-Dancer Vol. 1 (German Vinyl LP)

A compilation of mostly US early dance stuff from 1983 and a bit of a groundbreaking selection of twelve inch cuts designed to infiltrate the European market. A mix of electro, Hi-NRG tracks and Disco

“Buffalo Gals” turns up in the extended version which jumps into “She’s Looking Like A Hobo” (another version of Buffalo Gals with more of an electro feel with scratching) American Fade cover The Hollies track in a bizarre mix of guitar links and camp disco beats with Betty Valentino distinct C&W vocals or Agnetha Faltskog from ABBA. Electro funk from Shock and it becomes a big party floor filler….superb! Divine returns to Hi-NRG with a basic Moroder bassline and that husky vocal on this classic track on a super long remix with extra cowbell.

Side 2 starts with some more electro by Indeep (they did “Last Night a DJ Saved My Life.”) with the chauvinistic “Boys Talk” We go into a Eurodance\ New Romantic sounding electro of One-Two-Three with “Runaway” (going into Human League territory in the end) Experimental-ism then arrives with the Patrick Cowley track (who worked alongside Hi-NRG legend Sylvester) a synth paradise with plenty of squelches and bleeps. The Jonzun Crew go more electro boogie disco with camp lyrics.
