BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1978

Side A

DISCO FRIDAY!

Teri DeSario (born November 27, 1951) is a singer/songwriter from Miami, Florida. DeSario worked within several music genres out of high school. She was vocalist, played recorder and harp from 1970 – 1977 with a Medieval and Renaissance music group, the Early Music Consort, headed by scholar and Pro Musica member Arnold Grayson. She began her popular career as a singer/songwriter in the folk genre and later expanded her love of folk music with her passion for jazz. After marrying horn player, arranger, and composer Bill Purse, they founded a pop-folk-jazz collaborative called Abacus. One night a long-haired man walked into the club where she was performing, claiming to be the producer of the Bee Gees; it turned out he actually was. Barry Gibb heard her demo of original music and was so inspired by DeSario’s vocals that he wrote a song for her called “Ain’t Nothing Gonna Keep Me From You” and helped her obtain a recording contract.

“Ain’t Nothing Gonna Keep Me From You” from 1978 was Teri DeSario’s first hit single, written and produced by the Bee Gees’ lead vocalist/songwriter Barry Gibb, from her first album Pleasure Train, also released in 1978. Gibb also sang backing vocals on the track.

The second single from the album “The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of” peaked at #41 on the US dance chart.

Even though the first single from her debut, Pleasure Train, made #43 on the U.S. pop charts, she hadn’t really enjoyed the recording experience and wanted a new direction. It was then that she bumped into an old school mate she had as a teen, Harry Wayne Casey (KC) of KC and the Sunshine Band. In 1980 De Sario recorded a duet with KC a cover of Barbra Mason’s “Yes I’m Ready” which became a #2pop hit in the US.

    I’ve been looking for this one so long!!! Thank You for this great post. Casablanca does make me remember Donna Summer too but it mainly reminds me of DISCO 🙂

    I was such a big Teri DeSario fan back then! I didn’t see her perform live until she turned “Contemporary Christian” in the early ’80s, and I was a little disappointed that she wasn’t doing her “disco” stuff in concert, but she was still a fantastic performer and songwriter.

    Hi Shark I agree she is a great performer 🙂

    I can be such a happy man when posts like this show up at BTG! A rare and valuable find this is! And, yes, Casablanca Records is a label that “ruled” the dancefloors when Disco was at its peak (and after). Major atists had their name printed on the label of those 12″s with the -now famous worldwide- unique covers: Cher, Donna Summer, Village People, Patti Brooks, The Ritchie Family, the exquisit Alec R. Costandinos projects (Sumeria, Love And Kisses, The Syncophonic Orchestra, Sphinx), Kiss, Lipps Inc., Giorgio Moroder, Paul Jabara, Stephanie Mills, Roberta Kelly, Liquid Gold – just to name A FEW! Now, THIS is history! Happy week-end all you disco-lovers!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this song! Thank you! Teri DeSario’s first album, “Pleasure Train,” is fantastic. I have transferred it from LP to mp3. Let me know if you want a copy.

    Thanks for the offer I also have the album and you are correct is Fabulous. Have a great weekend 🙂

    Funny hearing a male backing vocal higher than the lead female voice. 😀

    I’m not a massive disco nut it has to be said, but if you had Laurie Marshall’s Disco Spaceship I wouldn’t say no. I think it’s possibly the happiest song I’ve ever heard. 🙂

    DjPaulT Reply:

    “Disco Spaceship” great song! I’ll have to track that one down.

  7. ric Says:

    I simply adore Ain’t Nothing Gonna Keep Me From You back then and still now.

    Sweet Pop Melody over a Gentle Disco Groove and with the midas touch of Barry Gibb, why wasn’t this even a Top 40 hit? This is no way weaker than If I Can’t Have You or Emotions. Teri is certainly shortchanged here by the US masses…

    I actually have the 12″ mix on a CD Single, but I think that is vinyl-sourced, so I’m sure your remaster will top it. Thanks Paul and a Boogie Disco Friday to you!

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Totally agree Ric Teri was certainly short changed. This song has “HIT” written al over it. Have a great weekend!
