4th March 2019: 亜蘭知子 – ひと夏のタペストリ

Artist: 亜蘭知子 (Tomoko Aran) Title: ひと夏のタペストリ Language: Japanese Translation: A Summer tapestry (on Discogs it is just called ‘Tapestry’) This super song is from 1983.

Artist: Neoton FamíliaTitle: 220 FelettLanguage: HungarianTranslation: 220 Above I found this quote somewhere: “Probably Hungary’s most popular disco group”. I can’t argue with that! More joyous (dare I say, slightly ABBA-ish) discotastic music from this great group. The upbeat tune is matched by the high-octane video – I would love to know more about that day!
