I picked this album up at a yard sale and it's sat in my  listen to' pile for at least eight years.  So what did I find when I finally gave it a spin?  French disco ...  

 

Apparently the brainchild of producer Michel Elmosnino and someone named Boris Bergman, this studio project included help from a then unknown Lene Lovich and various members of The Kongos.  Remixed by John Burgess, a 12" version of the title track caught on in European clubs, leading Polydor to finance an entire album. To my ears "Jungle D.J. & Dirty Kate" sounds pretty faceless - I originally thought I was listening to Silver Convention, or Penny McLean.
