A track that has quickly found it’s way into every STUDIO! set-list since it’s repressing has been Five Letters’ italo disco classic “The Kee Tha Tha”. Featured on Strut’s new italo compilation Disco Italia: Essential Italo Disco Classics - 1977-1985 (which Terry reviewed a few weeks back), this track was originally released in 1980 off of Five Letters’ amazing Yellow Nights LP. Five Letters, which included disco producers Claude Vallois and Denis Desrouvres had a nice run of releases during the late 70’s and early 80’s releasing records off of the legendary French disco labels Malligator and Crocos Records. The originals can cost a pretty penny, however, the good people over at Strut have made it cost effect to at least own one of their classic tracks.
