You Should Know The Score By Now

Extended disco classics to cut out and keep; our occasional series builds into a magnificent collection your whole family will enjoy.

Odyssey - 'Native New Yorker' (12") (1977)

(With big love to the good people of New York City).


  1. Absolute classic.

    I like the understated dedication.

    Here's to a relaxing weekend.

  2. Cheers lovely boy.

    There was a tasty bird at the Station tonight giving out limes with the free Telegraph on Friday thing.

    Smashing idea from Gordons - although I suspect no more than 3% of commuters slipped a slice into a G&T which was the aim of the game. Freshers will be having them surgically removed by midnight.

  3. Nicely timed - I would have done a Beastie Boys post if I'd thought about it..

    Have you visited? I've been obsessed since Record Breakers did an American special in 76 - but never been there.

    I wondered what those limes were about - I'm on the Meantime IPA anyway 7%

  4. Guys, did you check out the NASA picture of the day. One I've never seen before.

  5. I have Mond; a long time ago (1987) - I'll have to weave some tales into the, er, fabric of my blog sometime.

  6. I love New York. I could cope with living there if I had the money to afford Manhattan. But Hoboken was rather nice, and not too far away...

    Here's to the weekend anyhow, Cheers you lot!!

  7. Drew, that picture - or certainly one taken from that height by some satellite going overhead was on the front page of some paper at the time. Ended up on the wall in a recording studio I was in for a while.

  8. Simon - At the time I was at Sanna in Ardnamurchan in a caravan. Didn't even know it had happened 'til the next day as the radio was buggered and it wasn't until we drove the 5 miles to the nearest shop and heard folk talking about it. Still didn't see any pictures until the following day when they got the day before's papers.
    It was quite strange being in the back of beyond when all that was happening.

  9. Great post and share Davy, song is very new to me and it brought back memories of how I perceived NY as a little girl for some reason... a melancholy yet cool city, like something out of 'Saturday Night Fever'... not the dancing parts but more the end if you know what I mean.

  10. I know exactly what you mean Gabbi; surface sheen, melancholic undertow - it's there in all the great disco tracks, yeah baby.

  11. cor gabbi you lucky tyke - how bloomin marvelous must it be to be back hearing this for the first time.
