Remember first hearing it, out in the sun, with full-sized (Eagle) headphones plugged into one of these http://vintage-radios-london.co.uk/Vintage-1970s-GRUNDIG-PARTY-BOY-700-3-Band-LW-MW-FM-Portable-Transistor-RadioI Feel Love 12" EP - Donna Summer
As far as I'm concerned a game-changer in music. There's plenty of others but this one stands out for me.
I remember those Grundig radios... snazzy beasts Think I first heard it at a disco somewhere. There's been plenty of music over the years but nothing that had such an effect on me personally as this track did.Remember first hearing it, out in the sun, with full-sized (Eagle) headphones plugged into one of these http://vintage-radios-london.co.uk/Vintage-1970s-GRUNDIG-PARTY-BOY-700-3-Band-LW-MW-FM-Portable-Transistor-Radio
only mono from MW Radio 1, but sounded great - though it was a revelation in FM stereo on my Fidelity music centre (when Radios 1 & 2 joined up for the Top 40 Show on Sunday nights).
40 years later, playback equipment is better, the same can't be said for the music.
Can you imagine another game-changer like Donna's these days?
I was into Japan when I was but a mere sprog, but I haven't listened to David Sylvian, or that track, since the late 80s. but I'll have a listen again tomorrow, when I can raise the volume a little.
