Bugatti & Musker: The Dukes (1982)

I featured the song ‘Memories’ on my recent mix ‘Just The Two Of Us’. The whole album has a really loose, Westcoast feel, bordering on disco at times. ‘Mystery Girl’ even sounds like an old Michael Jackson track to my ears, which is probably because of the Arif Mardin production.

Check out their brilliant single 1976 pop/disco single ‘Ain’t No Smoke Without Fire’ below.
