Our occasional series of extended disco classics builds into a magnificent libr-oh, you know the rest.

This baby has a bass line that can only be described as FAT and Melba funks around it like a good 'un: you best turn it up and tell your neighbours it's Friday.

Melba Moore - 'Standing Right Here' (extended version) (1977)

[Still recording]


  1. Perfect Friday night record, old chap. Do I get a bonus point for noticing you've given us a song from this CD before (Ramp if i recall) or should I get out more? This is better.

    There won't be a post over at my place today. I had a great tune planned but I've had a shitty day and can't find the right words.

  2. Just put the music up! Go on go on go on.

    Yes, well spotted - I have twice plundered this. Buy it! It's a cracker!!

  3. Excellent Davy, I do like a bit of Melba Moore.

    Of to the wilds of Ardnamurchan for a few days, it's half term up here next week and then off to Berlin with work for second half of the week.

    Have a good weekend folks.

    A bit of this will see you right Mick.

  4. Thank you, Drew. Much appreciated. I haven't got any Gene Chandler and this is excellent.

    I could buy that CD or I could download it in stages from this blog.

    PS I've just got up after a lie down and just noticed the Peach and Melba connection. It's not a good idea to blog when your brain's running that slow.

  5. Michael, put the music up. We need your web presence of a Friday night.

  6. PS: Ardnamurchan: a place you can't pronounce (if you are a sad southern jessie).

  7. it's alright my 6 yr old has trouble with it as well

  8. It sounds like 77, but sounds like 82 too. Reminds me a bit of AWB Work To Do

  9. Hi music lovers, got an album or 7" sleeve that you've always loved, or really hated? Why not do your own version in pen, pencil, paint, collage or whatever takes your fancy and send it in to Sleevie Wonders for the world to marvel at. Come and visit, see what we've got so far.
