Someone Taught Me How To Dance Last Night

It's Friday, it's nearly the end of September, the nights are drawing in, so time to get the glitter ball out and boogie 'til we just can't boogie no more. 

An hour of disco classics and/or obscurities, all guaranteed to provide a hefty bass and beat and some funky guitar licks or soaring string sounds, or both. And some belting vocals, of course.

Today's cover star is the multi-talented Marsha Hunt who, amongst many achievements, released three albums in the 1970s, the last of which was a disco-inspired collection produced by Pete Bellote which she later dismissed as "a musical departure that had nothing to do with my own taste". I've left her off the selection.
1) Do You Wanna Go Party (Album Version By Harry Casey & Richard Finch): KC & The Sunshine Band (1979)
2) Lovin' Is Really My Game (Parts 1 & 2) (12" Version By Jerry Peters): Brainstorm (1977) 
3) Love Magic (Special Disco Version By John Davis): John Davis & The Monster Orchestra (1979)
4) Garden Of Love (Album Version By Jean-Marc Cerrone): Don Ray (1978)
5) Thunder In My Heart (Disco Version By Richard Perry): Leo Sayer (1977)
6) Open Sesame (Part 1) (Album Version): Kool & The Gang (1976)
7) Dance Little Lady Dance (Long Version By Biddu Appaiah): Tina Charles (1976)
8) Jealousy (Album Version By Barry Leng): Amii Stewart (1979)
9) Bourgie', Bourgie' (Special Album Version By Nickolas Ashford, Valerie Simpson & Jimmy Simpson) (Cover of Ashford & Simpson): Gladys Knight & The Pips (1980) 
10) How's Your Love Life Baby (Special 12" Version By John Luongo & Michael Barbiero): Jackie Moore (1979)
