Disco Dolly


It's Mrs Mond's birthday today - she's loves a bit of disco and a little spot of Dolly. So what say we fuse the two in one camp and funky bundle topped with a big blonde bow. Take your partners for some 12" disco-jiggery and a special dedi' to my endlessly patient, ever-glowin' birthday lovely...

Dolly Parton - Baby I'm Burnin



Dolly Parton - I Wanna Fall In Love



Dolly's roots are showing and they're Northern - one of her earliest singles from 1965...

Dolly Parton - Busy signal

not a cuntry twang in any of em! Thought the first one was going to slip into Burning Love for a split second...

Happy Birthday Mrs M!

Cusp said...

Wow ! Thanks for this. Love Dolly too but never knew she'd done stuff like 'Busy Signal'. Is that Ray Stevens I see on the credits ...he of 'Everything is Beautiful' ?


Happy Birthday Mrs M. :O)

Mondo said...

That's the beauty P, disco beats and synth-ping drums with Dolly's yokel vocal's out front.

Well spotted Cusp it is that Ray Stevens, you can get the full story here

Happy Birthday Mrs M!
If I was closer I would consider popping round with the karaoke and sharing a 9 to 5 mash up complete with cushions up jumper... totally free of charge too (don't sigh! its great...honest??)

Happy Birthday to your lady!

Lordy, I never thought I'd see such a stunning and groovy photo of Dolly and now I need to know if that dress is a Foale and Tuffin.

A very happy birthday to Mrs Mondo.

Mondo said...

Jaqui - have you heard the Soulwax comp that runs from a 10CC/Destiny's Child mash up into 9 to 5? Here if not

Thanks Miss P and check out Dolly's groovy boufant do here

And guess what FC, a signed (and personalised) copy of the Michael Caine biog found it's way into the birthday bundle..

A local fish and chip place (Mrs M's request)as 'nice coleslaw and mushy peas' according to a text just in..

There's round two of Dolly's disco business here Ally (strange ol' vid though)

I love these 'before they were famous' snippets - Dolly sounded (and looked) great, just as she was. She didn't need Islands In The Stream, breast support by SGB or Dollywood. Did she?

Mondo said...

I've got a ton of before they were famous tunes tucked away..

Did you ever see the Linda Thorson and Caroline Munro ones posted last year, and the Elkie Brooks and David Essex do Northern Soul posted here

Mondo said...

Actually just click here John and you'll get the full set

I'm not a huge country fan but I luv Dolly! Loved all three songs... most especially "Busy Signal"
