czar-you left off King of the Delta Blues Singers.Also I have some question on King Of Pop.It's a self proclaimed title,that's somewhat akin to giving yourself a nickname.I never felt it worked that way.
Sure they had a couple of dance club hits, but that doesn't make Yaz a disco band. While one of my favorite new bands in their day, they only lasted a couple of albums and were never kings of anything. If we want to pigeonhole them to a genre label, wouldn't it be New Wave? With lineage from Depeche Mode to Yaz to Erasure and Alison Moyet's solo stuff, I think of all of those as New Wave and none as disco music. Cheers, Spencer
The first one to do 16min tracks, the king is Cerrone with "love in c minor", cerrone's paradise",. And "Supernature" album including "give me love", all came in 1976-77. the crusaders "spiral" and nile rodgers and bernard edwards, of course.
Now what i like about Cerrone’s 40 & more years career, is that he has been both an avantgardiste and a follower. His avangardiste work has been and is still sampled left and right. His work as a "follower" takes yesterday's and today’s dance music sound and adds to it so much better and richer arrangements, especially on drums. Just pick the best tracks of his latest album "red lips", and you will notice the better sound, even if you dislike the genre. Marc Cerrone is a very cool guy, with his unique drums sound, colors and arrangements. Much like nile rodgers, he’s an awsome dude, and man, what a bio, what an adventure. Love Cerrone.
