John Travolta – A Girl Like You (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 19th October 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979

DISCO FRIDAY!

Before he was Tony Manero (Saturday Night Fever) or Danny Zucko (Greae). The one time disco dancing king of New York, was a recording artist.”A Girl Like You” was initially released the year before he strutted his stuff to the Bee Gees soundtrack in Saturday Night Fever.

The song was sampled in 1999 by Canadian hip-hop outfit Len and featured Biz Markie for the track Beautiful Day. “A Girl Like You” was first released in 1976 as the B-side to “Back Doors Crying” and then re-issued in 1979 on a 12″ as the A-side. “A Girl Like You” was also featured on Travolta’s ’76 album “Can’t Let You Go”.

The 12″ plays the same track on both sides and features a picture label of Travolta during his 1977 Playgirl magazine photo shoot. One of my favorite disco single’s and well worth checking out.
