    Hot pink 12″ vinyl in 1978 must’ve been sooo fckin cool!

    Sadly, I can’t bear Dolly Parton, but this is one great looking record from a time when record packaging on the whole wasn’t often that special.

    I’ve just starting reading up on coloured vinyl and am amazed that indeed the very first 45s in 1949 were green, blue, yellow, red – anything but black!

    But I’ve also read that coloured vinyl is often poorer in sound quality – have you ever noticed this Paul? How hard was Dolly to rip?


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi Jermajesty I love Dolly myself and she is a great person too. As far as colored vinyl this one sounds really really good. I think it depends on the pressing and the country. The worst sounding colored vinyl in my opinion is from Mexico and Colombia they press a lot of theirs in different colors and every one I have heard doesn’t sound that great. Give this one a liste you can always press delete if you don’t dig it 🙂

    Ahhh, Dolly Parton, you just know she’ll be such a great gal pal!
    Thanks for her disco 12″, Paul!
    As for coloured vinyls, that’s what I heard growing up in the 70s/80s. I was also told that picture disc quality is even worse.
    In my own experience, there isn’t much difference in the coloured vinyls I own. However, I own a few picture disc albums, and they do sound more muffled. But I didn’t buy those for listening pleasure anyway, more for collecting sake.


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Yeah none of my picture discs sound good like you said they are mostly just to look at 🙂

    Firstly on the “coloured vinyl” issue, having owned many and being brought up in the audio industry of the early 1970s (I worked for Decca R&TV), no difference whatsoever!

    As always I look forward to hearing this release..

    Thanks Paul.

    Thank you!

    Fun choice. It’s noteworthy that Warren Schatz was known for his work with Dolly labelmate Vicki Sue Robinson, which was probably why he was tapped by RCA to mix these tracks. Listening to these so many years later their it’s blatant crossover intent that plays louder than the beat. I’ve always much preferred the LP version of “Baby I’m Burning” over the disco mix, but the disco mix of “I Wanna Fall In Love” does an excellent job at subtly transforming the bouncy 2 minute LP track into a mid-tempo piece of lightweight funk. The disco mix of “BIB” just hampers the bouancy of the original. These weren’t the only or the best disco tracks recorded by Dolly, either. “Star Of The Show” is full-on dancefloor as well as a top quality, anthemic song. RCA really missed the opportunity of having another big pop hit with her by not releasing it as a single. Her cover of “House Of The Rising Sun” missed the boat by not being issued on a remixed 12″, either. But anyway…I’m curious about a much-rumored club album she recorded but hasn’t released.

    Thank you Paul for Disco Dolly!
    Great tunes and they are “discotized” nicely, not too much.

    The Doctor Reply:

    A dance mix of a Chicago song? I’d buy that for a dollar! 🙂 (Score yourself five bonus points if you recognize the reference.)

    No, seriously — I’ll throw some shekels in the tipjar if you’ll reupload that one. 🙂


  11. Jason Says:

    Thanks for this one Paul. I recorded this onto a cassette in the day. Now I have a much better quality version.
