Forgotten Treasure: Two Man Sound “Que Tal America” (1979)
I’ve always loved this cheeky disco track, a bit of a guilty pleasure. I found a copy in Toronto a couple years ago and I’ve been playing it ever since. The kind of cover or band name that you wouldn’t really pay attention to (you can still find it on Discogs for pretty cheap)
You hear the first guitar licks and you think “ok this might be alright” and then the cowbell comes in and you’re like “hmmm now i’m not so sure anymore” but then a couple bars later the drums, the bassline and the keys come in and then well… you buy the record, go home and dance for 12 hours to it.
From disco don: @Joey Negro “Two Man Sound were the brainchild of German producer Roland Kluger. Though “Que Tal America” sound authentically South American it was actually recorded in Brussels.
This track a lovely little Latin disco groove that really builds up hypnotic momentum on the dancefloor. In fact it only just missed out on the UK Top 40 Pop Chart in 1979. Needless to say, it’s been sampled countless times in House music, as well as being given a straight cover by A Man Called Adam.”
A little bonus note: Check out the 1996 version by Terrence Parker (below in the player). A very slept-on remix I strongly recommend you scoop up!
