Don’t Just Stand There, Come On Inside

posted by on July 24 at 12:21 PM

In 1978, Don Ray of Kongas and Sphinx fame collaborated with Cerrone to write the amazing disco gem, “Standing in the Rain”. Originally released as a 12” Promo by the Polydor imprint label Malligator, this song became a staple of David Mancuso’s legendary New York club, The Loft. This rare classic has been reissued a number of times, including being featured on the Loft Classics bootleg series (Volume 11 to be exact) that came out in 1995.

This is a good example of the kind of music I will be playing at Pony this Thursday, July 26th. It’s the first night of Circus! which will also feature DJ’s El Toro and H.M.A. It will be an amazing night of classic disco, italo jams and re-edits, like what used to be played in the legendary New York clubs - Paradise Garage, The Loft, The Gallery, etc., mixed with some newer disco classics. If you want to work up a sweat, this will definitely be the place to be.
