Burning The Ground: DjPaulT's 80's and 90's Remixes

80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Raindolls – Disco Santa (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on December 7th, 2012



Re-Rip Remaster

Originally I posted this one back in December of 2010. I felt that Christmas and Disco Friday needed the inclusion of this great single so I decided that I wanted to give it a fresh 2012 update using my Ortofon 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being offered for the very first time in high resolution 24 bit.

This year you’ll be hanging the Christmas stockings with cheer, as boogie fever fills the air. This classic disco single released in 1978 with Gary Turner (Gary’s Gang) on drums is pure disco fun. So hang that Christmas tinsel and dust off those platform shoes “Disco Santa Claus” will make you move and groove. Happy Holidays!

    I was very excited about this, but am continuing to have problems downloading the mp3’s. Any thoughts on fixes?


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Sorry Conner I don’t really have a fix except to say try rebooting and try different browsers.

    Ah, X-Mas theme….um, think we might get BAND AID II’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” as well? 😉

    Either way, thanks again and happy holidays Paul!


    DjPaulT Reply:

    You’re welcome Goodguy i’ll have to look into Band Aid II as I never bought that one when it was released 🙂

    Thanks, Paul!! Is this a re-post of something you posted a couple years ago? I’ve thought more than a couple times about what song originally brought me to your blog and this was one of my guesses. In any event, thanks.


  7. Mike Says:

    I guess I should have taken the time to READ your post first. Thanks again! So glad to have discovered this great blog.
