Disco Segreta resurrects an extraordinary chapter from the captivating world of late 1970s Italian disco music!
In this installment, we pay homage to Sicilian producer, Franco D’Accardi, hailing from Palermo.
Franco assumed the helm of the small record label ASA (Artisti Siciliani Associati), known for its diverse catalog, which included progressive rock, folk, and a sprinkling of disco. In 1978, Franco's path crossed with that of American model Adrienne Edwards while in Sicily.
He enlisted her talents to contribute vocals to two tracks, "Mystic Night" and "Disco Dancing," which were released in 1979 on a 45 RPM record limited to 1500 copies, exclusively distributed in the local area.
While "Disco Dancing" on the B-side offers a fantastic rendition of Stanley Turrentine's disco classic, "Mystic Night" stands out as an electrifying, enigmatic, and seductive disco masterpiece. It's a captivating fusion of drums, congas, snares, slap-bass, and mind-bending synthesizer work, where Adrienne's voice harmonizes with a deep male voice, attempting to entice her.
In short, "Mystic Night" is an utterly unique and indispensable gem in the landscape of underground Italian disco, marking the twilight of the golden disco era.
After extensive efforts, Disco Segreta is reissuing these remarkable Italian disco treasures, fully remastered to meet contemporary standards.
