The Three Degrees: Giving Up Giving In

More excellent disco here on Puck’s Prattle.

This is brilliant, infectious electrodisco at the very beginning of the hi-NRG sound, which would continue through to the mid 80s. “Giving Up Giving In” is the signature song of the Three Degrees’ late 70s collaboration with electrodisco pioneer Giorgio Moroder.

This song comes on hyper-strong and never lets go. Listen carefully to how stacked the backing vocals are. The best word I can find to describe them is bewitching.
